Me Covering Makes Me Wanna Die - The Pretty Reckless

This is a video of me covering the fantastic song: Makes Me Wanna Die - The Pretty Reckless.
The band was formed by the 16 year old Taylor Momsen in 2009 who is probably best known for her role as Jenny Humphrey in the TV series 'Gossip Girl'. The album fits very well into the post-grunge/alternative rock genre which contrasts her role as the innocent character in Gossip Girl massively. In an interview with MTV, Taylor stated that the albums sound influences mainly come from bands such as The Beatles, Audioslave and Nivarna. The song that im covering in the video; Makes Me Wanna Die, was featured in the soundtrack of the recent movie Kick-Ass and will also be included in the album which comes out this summer.
It is a very easy song to play and i didnt encounter many problems while trying to play this song, however it is in drop D tuning which is one of the most basic down tunes to master; simply down tune the low E string until it is in the same key as the D string. If you need any tabs for this song then please ask and i will either write out the chords i used or do a 'how to' video.
I apologise for the bad quality of this video, it wouldnt let me upload the HD
version onto Blogger which is much better quality, however you can find this HD
version on my youtube channel; MrGuitarKid1
