If it was recorded with a condenser mic and mastered it would sound raw as fuck yum.

I'd give anything if he could finish the song  :wub:  Missing You is one of my favorite songs off of the trilogy and I love it so much.

I feel like you have trouble posting in any topic recently without needing to take some kind of subtle or not so subtle jab at Green Day or any of the new stuff. 

I really don't think stating that this song doesn't particularly work as an acoustic is something that's a "jab." Aren't we allowed to have opinions against things Green Day/Billie does? Or at least be slightly critical?

 

I'm glad to see him doing something, don't get me wrong, but I agree with Ceadog — this isn't anything spectacular, and plenty of other songs would have worked much better as an acoustic... I really liked the Rusty James acoustic, for example. But doing an acoustic of something like St. Jimmy, for example, might come out a bit awkward.

 

It's ok. Nothing special.

Agreed.

 

It wasn't a jab at anything. Acoustic albums are almost always aimed towards slower songs with a fuller sound. Missing You is a straight up 3 minute slice of pop punk that works best played loud and fast. It even has a drum solo. If in acoustic album were to be done, it's probably be songs like BOBD that would make the cut.

 

And Missing You is one of the few songs I actually like from Trilogy, so yeah :P

Same! I think Missing You is a great song as is (probably one of the strongest from the Trilogy), and I'm not a big fan of this! I realize he's not playing it for any sort of critique or future acoustic album or anything — just to have fun — but it's a valid opinion!  :)

That's my problem. It's annoying that people will still go out of their way to critique something meant to just be a little fun. Like, people can't just enjoy or ignore something, they have to make sure others know they're not a fan.

Isn't that the point of discussing things on a forum though? The forum would be a little boring if everything was "oh, well that's nice."

Amen, bro.  Billie tosses something out to the fans just simply because he wants to, for the hell of it, or for no reason at all, and people go clucking around criticizing it like he just put out an album or something.  His guitar tuning? His strum pattern? His vocals? On a fucking INSTAGRAM video?? Jesus...

 

Please forgive me for how this is going to sound, but I'm no longer surprised that there are people around BJ who try to insulate him from this, and I can also understand where at least some of his inspiration for Lazy Bones must have come from.

It's nothing special? It feels pretty special to me, first I love that he recorded it and shared it with us, something this simple, I love the sound of his voice like this, we don't normally get to hear him singing this quietly and beautifully , not live, not in album versions. That's to me the magic of this little clip. He's not trying to show you his skills at acoustic guitar or anything, he's just recording himself singing this (amazing) song to share with us, just because.

There's a full show of something like 15 songs. Loads of rare shit on it. It's in the Downloads section somewhere.

The volume of his singing/playing gives me the impression that he recorded this at some ridiculous hour of the morning and was trying to to wake up the house. :lol:

 

Still though, I love it, and it's such a nice treat. :happy:

Agreed. The simplicity and him deciding to share it regardless is why it's special. :) It's not relevant how good it is.

 

 

I don't get the need to analyse even things like this either, the majority of them really are just what they are.

How are yall d/ling videos from instagram?

I got some videos posted from my old phone would love to get back

 

Go to webstagram.com, find your username, click on the video, then where it says "Video" right click and download as mp4.

 

That works on my mac at least.

 

And I agree that Billie's "performance" here is nothing extraordinary but it's still sweet of him to post and therefore charming in its own way.

 

What's with the 4th one being in color though? :lol:

If they were going to do an acoustic album, Missing You would be pretty far from the list of good choices.


I always thought Baby Eyes would be an awesome acoustic song.

Missing you isn't so bad though :-)

And thanks for turning the clips into one video, Andres!

LOVE THIS ONE! (But it's one of my all time favorite songs).  Can someone combine the clips again pleeease?
