Here come the excuses and apologies (zoom). But when I saw Bryan’s tweet about the remix, I could not let it pass by

I’m a long time Doors fan, so when I listened to ColinJagoe’s smooth rendition of Riders on the Storm, I was inspired just to try out the tabs.

Then I cringed at monsters like “F#m7sus4″ and “Bm7sus4″ til I got to the bottom, and author had laid out them more clearly- I used the “frets” version, and once I went through it, it had a very familiar feel to The Pusher Ringy/Slidy Bluesy one I did long ago– I am guessing it is just in the minor range.

For my cover, I tried it the bluesy angle, almost the strumming pattern of The Pusher. After recording in Audacity, I was bummed because my input levels were too hot, so I shrunk down the amplification, and to cover up some, I tossed in a little reverb.

I really like the sliding progression, and I got a few new open-ish chords to mess with. I am not quite sold on the D-C for the fifth of the blues riff, but I can live with it.

Remix on.
