In what has the potential to be the ultimate form of flattery for Dawes fans, the band has opened a cover competition, and the panel of judges will be the band members themselves. After fans asked for the tablature to “From The Right Angle,” Dawes decided to show how to play the song, instead of simply releasing the chords. Fans can now learn the song, and upload a video their cover to have a chance to win a Fender guitar. For the not-so musically inclined, they can help the band by “liking” their favorite covers on YouTube.
