6 Second Cover – Girls (The 1975)

Girls by The 1975 ¬†was a really fun 6 second cover to do, although it took a bit longer to sync it all up than 6 seconds ūüėČ ¬†The riff for both guitars is centered around a B and F# chord, one being chord based and the other being a single note line. ¬†I used my Line 6 Sonicport with¬†the same settings for each guitar. ¬†Actually I originally did this sound for a Fixx tune, but it didn’t fit ¬†nicely into the 6 second frame Vine restricts you to.

The TAB shows both parts that are played in the original recording and my Vine, with one small alteration.  Because I use a heavier balanced tension string set on my Strat, I left out the notes in brackets for Guitar 1.  I found that it overpowered the other notes which were most likely played on a slinkier set of strings originally.
