    Howdy guys! I have been wanting to cover this ever since Fade came out but never got around to it. Had a sick day today so i decided to finally do it.

    Quick and dirty, the end is sloppy. lol



    Hope this helps somebody who wants to play it.

    I sure enjoyed that.

    EDIT: I never really noticed the Smashing Pumpkins influence/sound in his songs, until I saw this video. But it seems to be there.

    Thanks!

    This album in particular he was going for that sound. I don't really think there is much SP in his other stuff.

    Thanks guys! I wish i could have gotten the video to sync better. iMovie 09 is the worst software ever.
