    Music school kids covering Pantera

    This is awesome!

    The kid that plays the lead has some great chops!

    owboys From Hell by Pantera
    Presented by the students of Aaron O'Keefe:
    This song was recorded on Saturday, Feb 20th 2010 at the Saint Claire Recording Company in Lexington, Kentucky.
    The students did 10 takes of the song in 1 hour; this is take number 5. In order to get multiple camera angles I had the students record the song using a click track at 112 bpm.
    Not only did using the click track help create a better video, but many professional recordings are laid down to a click track. In using this technique to record, the students now realize what is expected from a professional musician in a studio.
    Many viewers might wonder why the students aren't jumping around and delivering a great visual performance as well. Playing along with the click track requires a great deal of concentration, so that wouldn't possible for many musicians, especially a bunch of kids.

    The guitars were recorded using 2 digitech pedalboards, 1 vox pedalboard and then one Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier Head. The bass was recorded direct.

    The backup vocals that you hear in the chorus were overdubbed but absolutely everything else (including the solo!) is one continuous take...take 5.

    What we changed...
    Dimebag Darrell's solo in Cowboys from Hell is incredible; however, Joe Hubbell has already played several Pantera solos note for note and needed to move in a different direction. So he used some of Dimebag Darrell's solo and added some of his own ideas.

    We also left out the music from 3:16 until the end of Cowboys from Hell and then created a free time ending section. The arrangement was shortened and simplified to make it easier for the students to memorize (since they rarely get to practice as a band) and to save time in the studio.

    Drums Tyler Rogers 12
    Guitar Blake Hillard 12
    Vocals Peter Hoffman 13
    Guitar Matt Lohmueller 13

    wow, the drummer is 12 and a better drummer than the one in my band.... well, at least this one can play to a click...

    Don't worry about people talking behind your back, it just means you're one step ahead and they're in perfect position to kiss your ass!

    Yeah, saw that first vid on the Sneap forum a while ago, pretty cool stuff. Kid in the first video playing lead definitely has better chops than most guys trying to shred twice or more his age.
    It's just so weird hearing the vocals without that pissed off aggression though.
    Guess it was to make it more music school friendly or something
