They Only Come Out at Night

They Only Come Out at Night cover.

"Frankenstein" is a rock instrumental by The Edgar Winter Group from their album They Only Come Out At Night. In live performances of the song, Edgar Winter further pioneered the advancement of the synthesizer as a lead instrument by becoming the first person ever to strap a keyboard instrument around his neck[citation needed], giving him the on-stage mobility and audience interaction of guitar players. The song topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart for a week starting in May 1973, and sold over one million copies.

Edgar Winter is an albino. And as a child you can imagine that it could've been hard growing up for him. Edgar said himself that he wanted to learn as many instruments as he could, and that the song Frankenstein was his way of showing his abilities. In this song he plays a synth in the form of a keytar, timbales, and even a saxophone!

WalkthroughEdit

There are some irregular patterns and parts that were meant to be played on other instruments such as a saxophone and synthesizer. Especially after the drum solo, there are a number of triplet scales (that were played on a synth in the original song) and such so saving up Star Power is highly recommended.

Appears InEdit

Guitar Hero (6th tier)

This song appears as a Cover Version.

TriviaEdit

The song's title, coined by the band's drummer Chuck Ruff, derives from the fact that the original recording of the song was much longer than the final version, as the band would often deviate from the arrangement into less structured jams. The track required numerous edits to shorten it. The end result was pieced together from many different sections of recording tape using a razor blade and splicing tape.
