This is the second, and in fact my favourite, track by Soundgarden from the Road Rash soundtrack. I’ve already gone over how I came across this and Outshined in my last post, so I’ll go straight to the video here. I skipped the somewhat longish intro, unfortunately, because it was tricky to align it with the backing track which had not metronome ticks. I’d been practising it alongside that other track, and so here it is!
My connection to this song goes back way before I even knew what Soundgarden and Grunge music were. Back when I was in school, I’d go play video games at a little kiosk in my neighbourhood and one of the games there was Road Rash. I was hooked, not just to the game but also its awesome soundtrack which featured great bands like Therapy?, Monster Magnet and of course, Soundgarden. And Outshined was one of the two Soundgarden tracks contained in the soundtrack, the other one being Rusty Cage.
So here’s a fond look back at those days that introduced me to some great music, with a cover of Outshined by Soundgarden! Once again, tuned down for a more badass effect :-).
I’m going through a bit of a Grunge nostalgia these days. Back in college, I went through a phase when I was really into this genre of music and went to great lengths to get my hands of music by bands from the 90s Grunge era. And I also enjoyed learning to play many of these songs but never got down to recording them in any form.
I recently realised that although Soundgarden was one of my favourite bands from that time, I never really learned to play any of their music, which brings me to this video. The title track for this legendary album – Superunknown! This is hopefully the first of a few Soundgarden tracks I’ll be uploading. There’s also an in-progress version of this track I uploaded with my two little buddies flying about as I recorded the video if you go to my channel :-).
I’m also playing this song in a drop-tuning with my PRS, and the backing track also tuned down.
