He's probably like 12. Give him a break. It's a great cover.

Yes, It is the difficult song but as you played it to me not to be pleasant. You have still no feeling of music. Learn something simple better. But I want to note and praise for that on another played a refrain, without top of strings)

Great effort mate, not an easy song by any stretch of the imagination

dude this is awesome anyone got any negative comments need to put their cover video up. cause this isn't easy man. whats the tuning?

Very good. Really want to talk to you next!

Nothing against uploading a cover of a song and acknowledging it's not perfect yet. However by not adding the tuning-detuning part of the song in the main riff, you're taking away a huge part of the song. And if this song really meant that much to you you would've appreciated it the way it is and not rush uploading a cover of it that changed the most important element of it. :P Still kudos for having the balls to even attempt learning a song as difficult as this. Also you rush the tempo way too much. I think you definitely have the chops to learn this song as it is, but by taking comfort in "almost" doing it right, you'll never really be able to play it properly. Remember that. And playing perfectly clean a tiny part of the song is far more impressive and important than playing the whole song with imperfections/omissions/sloppy parts Not a negative comment, just some constructive criticism from a fellow guitarist. I myself would be scared to even attempt learning this song. (mainly because I never got into percussive guitar and all the relevant techniques)

+franktheninja2 Anytime bro. I'll check Loveproof out. Since you're into slap guitar you probably know of these guys already, but just in case you don't, you should: Andy McKee and Erik Mongraine. Personally I find Erik Mongraine even more impressive. Check out his song Raindigger. Might not be as technical as Jon Gomm's Passionflower, but definitely a beautiful composition

I love both of them, if you want to get more into it, Michael Hedges and mike dawes are also grand. Tommy Emmanuel does it from time to time. but really, whatever you can get your hands on is top.

Please upload the tabs somewhere.

can you make a tutorial video or tab it please ??

that's over the fretboard piano style guitar trick is fucking awesome
Report spam or abuse
not a trick it's called "tapping" for obvious reasons lol, if you like it check out felix martin he does it on a 14 string guitar
Report spam or abuse
+Steven M I know what tapping is....been playing for twenty years...if you play with two hands bass notes and melodies. Thats similar to playing piano. So yes it is a neat little pianoish trick.

Great cover, you did a good job! hey do you know where I can learn this, or at least what tuning it's in?
Report spam or abuse
wow. thank you for sharing. idk wtf this google plus stuff is but here. he has a tab for two pounds or so on his website http://jongomm.com/store its about halfway down the page. if you cant purchase stuff online, the tuning is Eb, G, Bb, F, G, Bb (low to high) and the top two notes only get detuned by a whole step. the intro chord (because its tricky) is 0, 8, 7, 4, 0, 0. (low to high) hope it helps!

Thanks, it helps a lot! Interesting tuning, I'll try to see if I can purchase the tab online to really get into it. but yeah this helps, Thanks.

Got to give you credit, I would never be able to pull this off. And if I were you, I would print this page out being that you actually have a reply from Jon himself. You did a hell of a job. Good luck to you in the future! :)

Mate the guy is a master at guitar. Your effort is really really good. I can't find any better covers of it. Thanks for giving the tuning. Well done :)

Great effort to one of the most difficult songs in the world to play, bravo

i cant de-tune like that with y current pegs, so i played it all with my left hand, there just whole steps. but if you do, then you cant do the percussion at the same time, its a toss up

theres a couple of things i could say to you about this video but im not gonna.... youv achieved more than me by learning even a fraction of the song and in some ways playing it your own way... well done, maybe practise it a little more and upload another one and get the flow a little smoother but well done either way buddy
Report spam or abuse
it must have taken you long to master this...

Learning this right now :D Gonna try tuning it like he does, but I don't have banjo tuners. I bought 8 extra strings for this song only ^^

other than needing to work on your tempo and a bit more practice. i say you did very well. ive seen jon gomm's video for this song, and this isnt a easy song by anymeans. well done
Report spam or abuse
its my dream to be able to play this song I'm 16 you look about that age where did you learn to play this?
Report spam or abuse
Report spam or abuse
It's not 100%, but damn. You've made an attempt on a cover that 99.9% of the world's population wouldn't even consider. If I could give you any advise, it would be to just relax during the chorus (where you're doing the two hand taps lower on the neck, your tempo fluctuates way too much). Otherwise, you've come up with an incredible substitute to Jon's banjo tuner fiddling during this song. 5/5 for creativity, 3/5 for execution (due to the tempo changes). Overall, 4/5.

Pretty :P I think you're awesome.

So often when you see videos posted like this, you watch it expecting the worst. But mate, I have the greatest respect. You did an awesome job. I've been playing the guitar for years and I doubt I could do this. Keep up the good work. :o)

buying different pegs, i break about two strings a month :S

Nice job! I'm still working on actually using the pegs, I think it sounds better. One thing, try not to stress yourself during to play, take deep breathes and calm down! :)

Dude... @jongomm just complimented you...and you replied with that? lol i would be going CRAZY with pride.

percussive sounds are mostly off beat… but cool playing anyway!

When you bought the tabs off his website, did you have to compensate and change the tabs to work without tuning it? I'm considering to do what you've done, any tips?
