Default Mumford & Sons cover "I'm on Fire"

Unplugged. I love this version. I want to learn to play rhythm guitar like that.

Thanks. What category is this in now? Never mind. I didn't know we had a "Listen" category. Learn something new every day!

Nice version

I am by no means a technique expert But I am guessing a big part of what you are hearing is palm muting and he appears to be doing a sparse version of the basic 4 string picking pattern on the original . And I think he is down picking the low E string as the beat note with an up stroke on the G sting
The muting gives it the percussive (what I call) Chucka Chucka feel to the Rhythm

I just watched the longer version of this show and read the backstory, very interesting and a fantastic performance. The dynamics, voice control, and emotion are just sublime. Great stuff. Thanks for sharing this.

Very nice version! I haven't heard much of Mumford and Sons, but I've been pleasantly surprised by each time that I have heard their music...

Nice "Private Party" gig, too! Thanks for posting this...
