    Unexpected and phenomenal Tool cover

    The young lady on vocals is excellent and the kid on drums loves his job.

    This is awesome! Tool is one of the hardest bands to copy with all the unconventional time signatures and these kids nailed it. The drummer and vocalist especially have bright futures

    The bassist was awesome too. Most kids don't look to play the bass. The bass can be phenomenal sounding when someone has passion for it like the bassist for TOOL.

    Agreed. The only reason I didn't include him was because he looked a little older. Still young tho. How old are these kids? Most look like 7th or 8th graders with the exception of the bassist and small kid playing those wooden blocks (cant remember what they are called) He looks about 8! Pretty complicated rhythm for a young kid. I think I was probably learning 8th notes at that age

    Re: Unexpected and phenomenal Tool cover

    Listening to 10,000 days just before coming to CF. That was an excellent cover. I know Tool has some complicated timing and I couldn't hardly count 4/4 time. However, their rythm seems a little more natural to me. I finnally bought their last three albums last year and I can't hardly listen to the rest of my music now.

    It's math.

    This was a great cover.. no question. BUT it's not hard to play unconventional time signatures in a studio setting.

    As a guitar player you get to hear what you want to hear in the headphones. Look at Lateralus... the outro... Freaking awesome... That was simply math.

    When I played and recorded I didn't want to hear anything but a click track (if there were any Tool type of things going on with the song anyway). You know what your timing is and what is going on with that. Everything else is a distraction. I'd only want to hear a click track. Let the studio put it all together after the fact.

    That said, i've seen Tool many times live and they are more than worth it. My favorite band by far. They play the math live so I am more than convinced.

    I agree... There is something special about Tool. Kinda like Pink Floyd. You get it or you don't.

    Re: Unexpected and phenomenal Tool cover

    I suck. I'm never playing music again. I gave up anything a long time ago that 13 year olds are better at than me.

    ...It's also why I don't read or play sports.

    I play bass at my church and I love doing it (started out on guitar and never was as good on guitar as I became on bass) - but I wish I could play bass half that well. Yeah, I get it, I look at a tab chart and practice for awhile I could probably play something that sounds reasonably similar to that, but that kid has skills I probably will never have.

    Whew, with just looking at the thread title I thought this thread was in response to the "should I get the snip?" thread ;-)

    Pretty solid. I wasn't feeling the vocals though. She sounded good, but too much like the girl from Flyleaf. There used to be a drum cover of A Stranger by APC out on youtube, but I cant seem to find it any more.
