Skin O' My Teeth (Megadeth Cover)

Skin O' My Teeth

I guess this one is for last month and it’s another cover. I’ve been listening to alot of Megadeth recently, and got a tablature book:

Drums

In previous songs probably the thing that took the longest was programming the drums. In this cover I saved time by finding a MIDI file (warning contians ads).

I imported the MIDI file, muted the other instruments and the drums mapped almost perfectly to DrumGizmo.

Guitar

I had some fun with the guitar, using the book as a reference at points. As with other covers I started by copying the first few bars of the solo then realised it would take too long so just improvised badly for the remaining time.

Vocals

I couldn’t quite hit the notes the Dave Mustaine sings with conviction, so I didn’t try. I think I got the chorus pretty well though.
