Better Late Than Never

Band Materials

Song List:

In Bloom

Say it Ain’t So

Anything Anything 

So far away

3 on E

Talk dirty to Me

The last chorus of talk dirty to me has syncopated hits during “til im screaming for more more more”

Also, The second time on the tag ending there are quarter note triplet accents I would like to whole band to hit  (talk dirty to me yeah yeah yeah yeah)


You can play much heavier on “In Bloom” and “Talk Dirty to Me”

Keep wrenching on the 3 on E chorus synth line


Remember for you to play Talk dirty to me where you want, you need to be tuned down a half step

Review In bloom intro below


-I’m loving the runs you’ve added to the “In Bloom” intro line. For reference, Check out how much more power it adds when Krist does something similar live


I love that you’re bringing performance energy to rehearsal!  AWESOME!  In the spirit of that, try to practice guiding the audiences’ gaze to what’s being highlighted at any given time on stage.  If there’s a guitar solo, look over there and rock out to is- super sick syncopated accents- pump your first with them, etc.


Be really aggressive on the “So Far away” intro.  It’s a punk tune, which means noise and conviction.  Tons of gain/distortion, and a REALLY heavy right hand
