    Not really my band so much as the students selected for the workshop at my music school...

    Comment/criticism would be appreciated

    Update: Two more of our songs are up. "Call of Ktulu" and "Young Funk" by

  3. Really? It sounds and looks right to me. Maybe I've been playing it wrong all these years.

    Great job guys.............It's a real kick seeing kids these day playing Pink Floyd. Who's idea was that?

    Sounds a LITTLE off but not a big pile. Good job!

    Isn't he leaving out the little descending "power chord" at the beginning? To my ears it sounds like both the clean guitar and the bass are playing it.

    I like it, but it's a bit boring to watch, not much happening on stage. Maybe I'm missing a singer. Keep up the good work 'though !

    I like the Metallica cover more!
  8. I hear the same thing that one of the above posters mentioned. It sounds like you are missing the descending fifth of the 'power chord'. But then the next time you play the riff I can hear it, but barely. Before the band kicks in this is what I hear:

    missing the fifth of the 'power chord'
    played correctly
    played correctly
    missing the fifth of the 'power chord'

    other than that it sounds good.

    Close enough for rock-n-roll-- most audiences would enjoy it just as is...but if I had to nitpick as a bass player, I'd say that Roger Waters plays *slightly* more behind the beat, and there's a very brief pause before he slightly bends up and holds the last note of the riff to transition it back to the start-- sort of a tension and release phrasing device that mimics the vocal inflections. Very fine distinctions I'm talking about here...every player phrases a line slightly different so there's no wrong or right, but there's sort of a hesitant vocal quality to the original bassline that makes it something more than a simple repetitive riff played static thru the song.
    There's a great DVD of "The Making of Dark Side of the Moon" where Waters displays the riff as he composed it on acoustic guitar. "Money" has a wierd time signature and it's hard for many to pull sound fine tho.

    Missing some feel, but that comes with experience... playing ahead, behind the beat... not just you, the guitar dude too. Drummer is good keep him around.
