I think this site just sticks up for guitarists no matter whether they are being sued, suing others. I think if Satriani killed somebody with his blistering chops I wouldn't be allowed to get away with calling him an idiot laugh.gif

However I don't think Moore should have lost this. I am of the belief that they changed the song greatly from the 70's version to be more like Moore's song. Oh well. There is still Out In The Fields to listen to laugh.gif

They did changed it a bit in relation from the 70's.I think Moor's song is not just that one theme,it has great lyrics,vocal melody,verse chorus,and at the end the guy just play better then the guy from Nordrach.smile.gif

Less obvious from the original version, but they sound similar - I prefer Gary's chord progression, playing, lyrics and song flow though wink.gif

To be fair, if I were these guys I'd be bummed too, even though I don't believe Gary lifted it on purpose.

There's a significant difference between the 70's version and the 2007 version that was in the first link though.
Peculiar as it seems in 2007 they sound a lot more "Still got the blues"-like.

Wierd situation for them, if they played their version people would think it's a cheap rip off of Gary Moore so perhaps they did it this way on purpose.

Seems to be the week of suing... Satriani is suing Coldplay, Gary Moore is sued by this german band, what`s next? Jose is right, sometimes I also have a melodie in my mind, and it somehow sounds familiar, though I just can't say where I heard it before (if I did at all), so what to do with it? Abandon it cause somebody else might have used the same? Difficult topic...

I can't comment on either of these specific cases because I do not know whether it was intentional or not. But generally a little bit of sueing might be a good thing. It will encourage people to be more original.

Totally agree - as you said earlier, in fact it sounds like GM's version re-infected their version!

IMO this sort of things are a bit silly. I mean cmon, who cares as long as the music is good, and it is impossible for these kind of things not to happen.

Well, that was new to me as well. But as Pedja said, this kind of chordal melody may occur quite unintentionally.

Once I wrote a little intro to one of my friends song consisting of powerchords on strings A D and and the open G and B strings. I put some reverb on it and let all the strings ring neatly. My friend came to me the next day and was a bit furious that I wanted to give him fake stuff. My intro turned out to be exactly the same as Placebo's Twenty Years hit. However, I had never heard of Placebo before that.



Only the last powerchord section was a bit different in my version. I was really sad about it. But what could've happened if I posted a song with the same intro and all Placebo-fans were ripping my head off...
