I'd been pretty excited in the past week or so to play a show over the air, but the news on Monday hit hard. It was difficult to think of anything but that. Two out of the three of us in the band are active Giant Bombers, and it was definitely on our minds. We didn't have much time between getting out of work and packing up all of gear, but with the little time we did have, my bandmates and I decided to throw together a short tribute song to Ryan in place of one of our planned songs. It's far from polished being that it was so short notice and I just had to figure out how the theme song went by hearing it in my head, but here it is flaws and all. I miss that duder, and playing this was definitely cathartic. RIP, Mr. Davis.

It should be linked to the proper spot, but if not, the tribute starts at 07:15

Edit: Thank you for all the positive responses we've been getting! We can't tell you how much it means to us.

Guitar tab, just on the off-chance you had one. Never mind, just realised you said you figured the tune out in your head (!) Good job, duder

Jimbo means the notes of the guitar part written down.

#33 Edited by ColdPhone (58 posts) -

Aha, gotcha (my dumb brain immediately went to tabbed browsing). The solo-y stuff was all improv, but I could make up a tab for the main podcast riff part.

#34 Posted by thatdutchguy (1283 posts) -

Wonderfull, Ryan would think this is awesome ! ;)

That'd be ace if you find time, but don't sweat it :)

Wow that was a great tribute! Gave me goosebumps.

#40 Edited by ColdPhone (58 posts) -

@jimbo: This is a simplified version I threw together. We keep our instruments tuned half a step down, so if you're playing it in standard and want to keep it in the same key for whatever reason, just transcribe it half a step up.

I don't have my guitar around right now, but that should be right. Thanks again, folks!

This is amazing even if you ignore how little time you possibly had to do this

Awesome. Just awesome.

I'm so moved by this I'm going to point my amp towards my window, turn the volume up as high as it goes, and shred along to this. Fuck the neighbors.

#49 Posted by ColdPhone (58 posts) -

#50 Posted by Demoskinos (15362 posts) -
