Re: Madman’s Eyes (New Song)

I listened to this song about 3 times, several days ago. And I still find it popping back into my head, even after a very busy week. It's that distinctively cool and memorable. I really need a studio cut of it.

    Re: Madman’s Eyes (New Song)

    Love this song. Best in years. I think we can all agree that they need to add a jam section / extend the song a bit live to really make this a monster. I've been trying to think of how they could best do this... What do you guys think?

    1. Extend the last chorus section with a Tim solo and horn lines to close it out?
    2. After the last chorus, go back into the post chorus section and lead into the main riff with a solo to close it out? Who takes the solo?
    3. Incorporate the quiet intro section (Dave guitar, "Hallelujah" singing, Jeff sax) after the last chorus to close it out?
    4. Don't add anything. Good as is?

    This song is better than anything new the band has produced since Snow Outside.

    To my ears it's Last Stop x DIDO

    I would go with option 2 with a Jeff solo.

    Meh. Chalk it up as yet another new DMB song that has a few interesting parts but just feels on the whole like it doesn't really go anywhere or accomplish anything.



    After a few listens, can't imagine I'll ever hear again. Wouldn't subject myself to it willingly and would bathroom break at a show.

    Yeah that could be cool! Although with Jeff doing the solo, we miss out on that dope baritone sax / horn section on the verse. So maybe Tim goes nuts here.

    I think he could still pull it off. He plays the alto in the intro with the baritone still strapped on.

    Took a stab at tabbing this out, it's not perfect (Post-Chorus is hard to track his fingers w/the videos I've seen) but it's reasonably close:

    Code:
    Intro
    E|-------------|-------------|-------------------------|
    B|-------------|-------------|-------------------------|
    G|-------------|-------------|-------------------------|
    D|--7----------|--7----------|--7-------6-7-6----------|

    E|-------------|-------------|-------------------------|
    
    Verse ("Little Billy's got a gun...")
    E|—-----|-------------|-------------|-------------------------|

    A|--8---|----8-7-7-7--|----8-7-7-7--|----8-7-8-------8-7-7-7--|
    E|------|-------------|-------------|-------------------------|
    
    Pre-Chorus ("Is this real? Is this make believe?...")
    E|—----|-----|-----|-----|
    B|—----|-----|-----|-----|
    G|--7--|--6--|--7--|--6--|
    D|--x--|--x--|--x--|--x--|
    A|--5--|--4--|--5--|--4--|
    E|-----|-----|-----|-----|
    
    Chorus* ("I'm afraid...")
    E|—--------------------|
    B|—-2----------2-------|
    G|--2----------2-------|
    D|--2----------2-------|
    A|---------------------|
    E|-----3-2--3-----3-2--|
    
    Post-Chorus/Bridge
    E|—----------------------------|-------------------------------|
    B|—----------------------------|-------------------------------|
    G|—----------------------------|-----------------------7-------|
    D|—--------9-------------9-10--|---------9---------------9-10--|
    A|-—--9-10---10-9---9-10-------|----9-10---10-9---9-10---------|
    E|--7-—-----------7------------|--7-------------7--------------|

    End
    E|—-------|
    B|—----2--|
    G|-----2--|
    D|-----2--|
    A|--------|
    E|--3-----|
    
    *Dave does not play during the chorus, but this is the basic progression
