Default Why are they arranging Hummer like this live?

sorry i'm obsessed with guitar shit lately

so i'm watching 2018 live vids and it seems like all three guitars are just playing the octave pattern during the final hit: [cued]

why. it sounds super nasally, doesn't it? in the old days iha would do the octave thing and corgan would play the rhythm [DED/DEG (?)] and it sounds more full and orchestral: [cued]

anyone can play guitar. anyone can fall in love

i get exactly what you mean, but that ending of hummer in '93 has billy's guitar so soft in the mix by that bit until the end of the song that you can't really tell anyway.

this is probably a better example where you can actually hear it properly:

(cued to the pinnacle)

but yeah i completely agree with you. i also think's it's lazy and tacky when you have 2 guitars playing the same thing too much, let alone 3 guitars.
