Celebrating NGD -> I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor (Arctic Monkeys-Guitar Cover)

Hey everyone!
Suffered an extreme case of GAS yesterday, and ordered a Tele Player Series. Arrived today and feels really good, still a lot to test but love how it plays for now, the neck is thin so allows me to move faster, and it’s not heavy at all, great for long sessions of playing standing up.

Anyway, what better way to start its story than with a cover. I got a backing track (no vocals) to this great tune, and recorded directly via USB using my Katana mkII.

Lots of blunders, gosh! The timing went out the window at the end, but it’s a song that I’ll continue to work on!

Any tips on the playing is welcome as always, as well as on the mixing/recording.



Happy NCD Kevin! Nice bit of kit you have there, and it sounds great. Love the spotlight and shades too, proper rock star! :sunglasses:

Wow Kevin that was fantastic, really well played! As I don’t know the original I haven’t picked up any flubs so for an average Joe you were great! On production perhaps BT a bit down would be better, but only a bit. Also shame the recording cut short so fast at the end, felt like you missed 0.5s to finish the note. But these are small things, well done and most of all Happy NGD! Guitar looks amazing!

Look at that MOJO. dayum.

This song is a workout. It has strumming and lead work, quickly following up on each other.
Great job!

Very well played mate. Fast and furious with seamless changes between lead and rhythm. Not familiar with the tune, but you had my head rockin away there ‘Bill and Ted’ style. :sunglasses:

Cheers, Shane

That was brilliant Kevin, not an easy one to play I suspect but you really nailed it.

Happy NGD as well.

Loving the rock star look you have going on as well. :metal: :+1:

Not easy but not super complicated either, it’s power chords and some lead using the pentatonic, but very demanding at my stage, because of the speed mostly!

Glad you enjoyed it, I’ll have to keep doing it for the next video won’t I :rofl:
