How the hell do you play Overyjoyed?

  1. You guys know Vic's piece, Overjoyed? How the hell do you play this!?

    Looking at the powertab I thought it was tapping..but apparently not. Did he record 2 basses for this piece, or is it really just one? I'd love to play this thing..but dammit my fingers can't reach 14 frets, sorry. :D

    I've always heard tapping was the way its done. Where's Wrong Robot when you need him?
     
  3. That's what I thought. But he plays the slide:

    G|-/20----21
    D|-----21---

    I guess you could do that with tapping, I'd have to practice my coordination for that string slide though...

    He does tapped slides. Just hit the note and slide it like a normal slide.

    It's not two basses. The whole point of A Show of Hands is that it was all one bass and some voices.

    Tat's right, it's all two handed tapping, Just one bass.

    It's a really great song, I'll post it sometime if you want to hear someone that's not victor playing it :p
     
  7. Ah, thanks guys. I'll have to go by Powertab...

    ..I would download it, but I'll probably get my ass sued if I do.
     
  8. Nah, you won't get sued for one song.....

    Yeah, it's all tapping. I'm adding this to the list of songs I need to learn :D

    Cheers
