Timing Trouble

Post by silverain2 » Sat Mar 06, 2004 9:46 pm

Ok, I'm having a bit of trouble playing Why I Can't Believe In God. It seems like 3 guitars are playing and the vocals muffle the banjo or whatever playing the main part. I keep listening to it over and over. Can anyone help me out here? I cant get the rhythm. This is one of my favorite EC songs besides Fire Maple.

Listen to the original Colorfinger version. It's much more stripped down. If you don't have it, you can download it from thecolorpit.com.

BTW, the original is called "Culver Palms".

This "Culver Palms" aka "Why I dont Believe in God" was a fucker to try and figure out from the tabs I saw posted, so I ended up being a loser and coming up with my own version. Naturally its pretty off, but I like the sound of it.

PM me or IM me if you want the tabs for it.

i figure the best way is to listen to different recordings like the ones found on the main site.
They might think you think you’re happy
Yeah maybe for a minute or two
They can’t make you laugh
No they can’t make you feel the way that I do

i learned to play it solo from listening to culver palms and buying the smfta official tab book. that's the best advice i can give you, it was a very challenging song for me to learn.

This song sounds like its tuned about 1/4 step up. (Like most of SMFTA) its very easy for the most part. Just pick and hammer chords.
