It's always fun to record a song I haven't played in forever...the last time I did Somewhere I Belong was in early 2010, before I'd even moved out of my parents' house! Needless to say, this is quite an upgrade:
I've also updated my tabs for both Somewhere I Belong and Pretty Birdy - the harmonics have a really percussive "strummed" quality to them, so they sound best on the lowest string. This means they're at the 7th fret of the Eb string on the live version, but with the studio version being in Bb tuning, I've moved them to the 5th fret of the low Bb string.
On to some Minutes to Midnight stuff next week, I have a couple "quality upgrades" to do from that album before I start recording fresh tracks, so I'm going to get those out of the way first.
