It's probably the most sincere project yet.

This is one thing I'd actually be interested in that he's selling.

I don't see what's so difficult about playing SP songs.

Anyway he doesn't state what instrument he'll provide instruction in.

Many of the songs are easy to play, but there's also a lot of alternate tunings he employs that have many of the tabs completely wrong. (La Dolly Vita is one example.)

There's a lot more than three.

Adore alone has at least 4 songs in odd tunings (if you follow the official tab book)
  • Appels + Oranjes and Daphne Descends: Eb tuning, except the 3rd string which remains at G
  • Behond! The Night Mare: Open Dm tuning
  • Perfect: Standard tuning except A string tuned up a step to B
  • Pug: Eb tuning, except 2nd string tuned a step and a half to Ab

The account commented it's using the same tuning as "Thirty-Three": (Half step down with the lowered A string)

It would be cool if he did it Star Licks style, but it will most likely be a crappy livestream where people make requests in chat and Billy plays them off the cuff with a shitty tone.

Come on, let's not shit on this idea. It's actually cool. Cooler than SP Christmas ornaments and incense, at least.

No no, he'll only do post-2007 material.

"So guys, thanks for logging in, got a lot of requests about how to play Run2Me so let's dive on in..."

Like I said. This is the most honest thing he could ever do. I don't even play guitar and I'm interested. I'd watch the F out of this.

I've played in Open Dm for the last 20 years and I write all of my music using that tuning. I am pretty sure I got it from that tab book as this is around the era that I started learning songs. Pretty wild.

I am part owner in a music store and they usually order in whatever SP/BC item comes along. The Reverend is one of the worst guitars I have ever held in my hands. In a room full of music nerds and gear heads we were all just left speechless at how terrible it sounded. Took over two years to sell and we had to lower the price on Reverb a few times. The reviews however are crazy good.

I barely play my PRS and Gibson stuff anymore because of the BC1. Itís the first to dethrone my 2001 Singlecut since 2003. Maybe the one you got was a random dud?

Nah, Billy's reverends sound like ice picks. The signature Strats with BC Dimarzios sound the same.

I've followed you on IG for a while now, big fan of your playing so I mean no disrespect but its the exact sound of your guitar as well. It's like this blunted mid-range, ice pick top end sound. It's a very muddy, low detail articulation. It's actually the exact sound I would expect from a 50 year old rock veteran that had substantial hearing loss.

I love my BC1 as well. I find myself playing it more than most other guitars I own. Iím surprised that so many people would shit on it. To each their own.
