's good to my ears, you can argue about that slide, yeah, but it's not messing it up.
um, by the way:
when you try to cover the guitar part - that's wrong; can't explain, just listen carefully - how do i know? i'm a guitarist and immediately picked up the guitar and tried it out =D
you got the notes right after all
Hey guys, on the sampling, I just wanna say that ALL art is borrowed. There are no completely original ideas. Also, this isn't the first time Coldplay has borrowed a riff (Talk's guitar line is borrowed from Kraftwerk's "Computer Love").
That being said, I re-borrowed their borrowing into an acoustic cover. I think i'm still too new to embed, but if anyone out there wants to do that, I would appreciate it!
