Death Cab For Cutie, Lightness

Last modified on December 11th, 2007

I accidentally ran into this song the other day on my iPod (yes, I have lots of music I haven’t heard before on my iPod), and there’s something about it I really liked. I’ve been working on playing it myself, and I’m pretty close. It’s rather hard (for me) to pick this song and try singing at the same time, but I’m getting better. In the video the other guy is doing most of the guitar work.

Check it out. It’s an acoustic version they recorded at MTV.

    ooohhhh….you’ve been missing out if you are hearing this for the first time. Death Cab is awesome, because of Ben Gibbard of course. This is a really great song too..

    mmm, that’s a nice one–i totally request a posted recording when you’ve got it down! it can be hard getting to a point where you can sing along well on songs with tougher picking…i’ve been learning some jose gonzalez, and it just kills me! now i wanna learn this one too!

    I’m pretty close.. I make the odd mistake, but I can sort of muddle my way through it now.
