If you watch HBO’s True Blood, then you know the opening song, Bad Things by Jace Everett. Actually, if it weren’t for True Blood, I wouldn’t know the song at all. I thought it was a cool sounding guitar song, so I thought I’d give it a try. I thought it might be a bit more advanced than my current level and I was right.
So, what we have in the video today isn’t the complete Bad Things. I wouldn’t even call it a cover… it’s more of an “inspired by” and it only goes up until the first guitar solo (yeah, I know… that’s the hard part). But, I’m going to keep working on it and re-post a full version when I get it all down. One problem is that the tabs I found contain the first solo but not the second. I’m not sure how I’m going to deal with that since my transcribing skills are non-existent.
Unfortunately I sold my Gretsch 5120 a few weeks ago, because that would have been perfect for this song. Or maybe a need an old looking relic’d guitar like the one the Strat-O-Blogger posted about the other day. It even has a True Blood look and feel to it.
