Now do Avenge Sevenfold's "Almost Easy" and make it sound... well almost easy

This is amazing, but I need Adam Neely to explain to me exactly why this is so amazing.

"Bro, which of these several needlessly complicated arrangements should we use for this song?"

"Yes."

That first verse has a strong feeling of a flight of stairs with one less step than expected.

Joe's obvious distress at the syncopation is a mood

I don't think most people realize the sheer genius of the chord progressions and the timings... this is incredible, I'm a huge Avril Lavigne fan and this blew me away

I have never felt both quite so validated and attacked at the same time.

Bro, this is pure genius. Tbh, I think this needs to be an entire series in itself

I think you did this mainly out of the pun but... damn I would buy a whole album of complicated covers like this!

This is honestly probably the best showcase of your musical abilities yet... I knew you could shred while progging!

holy. It is complex but the complexity is well executed and doesn't hurt the song but complements it.

3:29 Avril Lavigne's Complicated sung over double bass quintuplets... Something I never thought I'd hear

I wonder if youtube algorithm still recognizes the song as a cover.

I'm a pretty huge Avril Lavigne fan (been there since 2002 for her), and honestly, this is the first good cover I have heard of complicated in a long time. Good job guys. :)
