With Falling Down being performed as a piano song this tour, it made me realize how many songs have gone back and forth between being on guitar and on piano when played live. Which ones do you guys think are better?

 

Piano Sunburn vs Guitar Sunburn

Piano Falling Down vs Guitar Falling Down

Piano Screenager vs Guitar Screenager

Piano Cave vs Guitar Cave

Piano Soldier's Poem vs Guitar Soldier's Poem

Keyboard Arpeggio Bliss vs Guitar Bliss

 

Piano Space Dementia ending vs Guitar Space Dementia ending

Piano Citizen Erased outro vs Guitar Citizen Erased Outro

 

Also if I'm missing any others, please mention them.

I think this thread already exists somewhere...out there...

 

BUT: I prefer the piano version for almost every song, except perhaps for cave (but even there the ending is just so much better on piano)

 

check out Space Dementia for example: the ending to that song, when played on piano (hullabaloo, pinkpop 04) is seriously the best thing ever.

C'mon man, Space Dementia outro has to be on guitar.

 

Screenager on guitar @ Reading 2011 > Screenager on piano > all other Screenager on guitar performances

Already a thread for this but, fuck it, might as well post mine as they've probably changed anyway:

 

Sunburn - Matt on guitar, Morgan on piano

Screenager - (What Fabri said) Guitar @ L/R 2011 > Piano > All other performances

Bliss intro - Guitar

Cave - Guitar

Space Dementia - Tough, but guitar

Citizen Erased outro - Piano, obviously

Soldier's Poem - Piano

Falling Down - Guitar

No.

 

I keep telling you this.

 

Space Dementia Hullabaloo ending for example is amazing. It fucks Reading straight off. Same for Screenager.

I do agree Cave is better on guitar though the ending of Cave is much better on piano. It would be cool if there was a performance with Morgan on piano and Matt on guitar to really fill out the arrangement of the song better like in the studio version.

Screenager piano version is amazing, can't say I've really heard any guitar versions of it though (apart from the studio version).

I actually think Space Dementia outro works equally well on guitar or piano.

I prefer piano Cave up until the ending, which is much better on guitar IMO. Matt should switch to guitar for the ending and let Morgan take over the piano part.

Suburn piano version is 100% better than guitar version. There's just no question.
