Subdivisions - Roof Version
« on: January 24, 2009, 11:09:20 AM »
Here's an amazing version of Rush's classic "Subdivisions" by a man on a roof.

I like it a lot. I'm just watching it now for the second time.

It's very fresh- in an odd sort of way- for something I know so well, and it doesn't  feel like it needs to compete with the original.

It's very good, and original.

Couple of things, the excusion of external noise, maybe microphones these days are a lot better than they used to be? And, it's obviously done over a few takes because it gets dark too quickly, by the end of the song all the cars have got their lights on.

Still good tho.  :D

Thanks for finding that, Bert - a stunning version of one of my favourite Rush songs.  Very creative use of a looper pedal (DS takes note for future use of his JM4 pedal  ;) )

I guess this once again proves that a good song is just that, and provided it is performed with skill and emotion it will stay good.
