It's all constructive criticism, I'm glad you guys play this song, and not Van Halen :-)
You seem like young kids, so here's my honest opinion.

Very cool version, and nice playing.
It's a live performance so maybe It's the recording, but work on your dynamics, play less fills and play softer.

Just wondering what chords you guys play on the chorus.

The ABB play Dm-C-G
Sounds like you are playing all major chords? F-C-G

If you listen to the ABB live versions, besides Duane's incredible solos (and kudos to you for going above the fretboard, that takes guts) Have your rhythm guitar player listen to what Dickey is doing. Dickey's rhythm guitar makes Duane's solo soar as does Berry's bass run. That's the subtleties of the ABB music that takes time to learn. They all worked as a team and the guys not soloing, worked hard to support the guy soloing.

Keep at it, and once you master the basics of the song, go back and listen to a few version of the originals and see if you pick up on what I am saying about Dynamics and the rhythm section.

i think the other guitarist plays all major, but duane slides on the 10th, 15th and 8th fret or whatever, and those are all majors, so if a minor chord is played against it wouldn't it be wierd? i'll have to try it, i lent the other guitarist my ABB tab book so I don't know if he just overlooked it or what. he also wanted to do a solo at the end there so we kind of put our own twist on it with my doing the main lick over while the bass does some fills kind of like how Berry does some fill riffs, while the other guitarist does a little solo before I do the 2nd solo.

but we'll all definetly work on the dynamics I know its a very important thing, thanks for the review

Check the video again, pretty sure Duane plays (open tuning, right :-)

Dm-------------------------------------- C------------G
13th fret (relative major F)--------8th--------15th

And since the cameraman were probably tripping too, your rhythm guitarist will get great shots of what Dickey is doing during Duane's solos :-)





The keyboard (and the tab book ;-) are definitely playing Dm.
You'll see at 2:56 )or (:48 counting down to end) dickey is playing Dm on the 5th fret (Am barre)

Keep at it, and all of us old guys wish we were young again like you and had guys helping us along when we were kids. Definitely would have made me a better guitarist. Take the criticism constructively and know we all love the music and want to share our experience and get you to improve, not insult you and put you down.

I think that, apart from Duane's incredible solo, it is Dickeys rhythm and Berry's bass that really make this song GO!! The Skydogs perform this song and if the rhythm and bass are not there, on time and in-sync, it is very hard to play over that. As far as going above the frets, it is very "tender" so one must be cognizant of where thou goest!

You guys are really pretty good. I think the ending is the best part. The slide is a little too loud over the singer. I agree with others the rhythm riff needs to be more prominent. Still, it's remarkably good.
