This is awesome. Great work! I hope someday it has harmonies during the refrain! Keyboards would be cool too :D

 

Edit: Okay, after playing this many times, now, and having known the song before it was released with Borderlands 2 (hipster here :) ) and listening to it countless times in surround sound, in my car, and with headphones, I am 99% sure that the vocals charts are wrong.

 

I think you've got the harmony charted as the melody during the refrain, and since the "real" melody therefore isn't present at all, it's really causing an issue for singers when I play with friends. I was reluctant to point this out in my initial thank-you post because we were all drinking and it was our first time playing it, but now I'm almost positive something is up. But I hate to be the odd man out, so can anybody confirm or disconfirm this? I'd appreciate being called right or crazy!

 

If you are going to be updating this eventually, I'd be more than willing to help sort out the right notes for this song. It's so deserving of a perfect chart!

Wahoo. Just got to try it out with the improved vocals and three-part harmonies, and it's really the icing on the cake. I got my ass beat during the ending, but it was well deserved. Stupid accurate vocal charting >:( ;)

 

I'd like to give a big thank-you to Chainsaw Octopus for "collaborating" with me, if you want to call it that! I just figured out the notes themselves... he did the actual work of implementing my changes into the song! Hopefully the beginning of a beautiful partnership :)

Evidence from last night... I have no shame that we blew the ending on vocals. It isn't easy!
