  • Fixed some vocal things I forgot last time

  • Added vocal harmonies, cleaned up vocals a bit. Lyrics are probably gonna mess up because of TuxGuitar, someone with Guitar Pro needs to fix them.

  • Corrected tempo for the intro (it IS at 95; I'll leave the rest of the song at 90).

    Also, uploading this version mainly because Jader13's version squishes the drum track down to 2 lines and renames it Drumkit, yet retained all the corrections from the previous version. Is that from uploading a GP6 file? Anyways, I've corrected those two things.

  • Fixed the tempo

  • Vocal track was missing ties between a pair of notes in each of the three choruses, causing the lyrics to stop lining up. Should be fixed now.

  • Fixed vocal track. Added lyrics as well.

    Changed Backing Vocals track instrument from Choir to Bassoon, and fixed that too. Also added the backing vocals to the first set in the between-solo-chorus. Hopefully it's not too overpowering from the main chorus (I tried to keep that set quiet, the second set is more prominent).

    Re-wrote and fixed the drums (mainly fills). Tried to insert dynamics on a couple of tom fills and the main hi-hat rhythm.

    Also, bumped the tempo from 90 to 95 (based off the intro - it plays pretty much right along with the original recording at this speed).
