GuitarLessons | Last Kiss – Pearl Jam

In early 1999, Pearl Jam recorded a version of “Last Kiss,” a ballad done by J. Frank Wilson & the Cavaliers in 1964, which it sent as a single to members of its fan club. By March, “Last Kiss” was getting regular airplay on Los Angeles’s KROQ-FM. It quickly spread to other stations in the country, which did not please Pearl Jam, which had refused to release a single since its first album. It found a compromise when it agreed to the single’s inclusion on No Boundaries, an Epic Records compilation to benefit Kosovo refugees. Check out our site for more guitar lesson. I would like to thank Universal Music Group for granting me permission to keep this cover up and allowing me to use this track. This backing track *does not* contain Pete Townshend’s guitar. There is some very light acoustic guitar in some parts. Roger Daltrey’s vocals are swimming in reverb. The drums and bass sound like the track used on the record. The reverb really makes it sound muddy but it’s all I’ve got. I am playing the part in the video live – obviously. During the solo I added a very light second guitar in the background as was done on the record.
