Hey everybody. Been around the forums for awhile (although not long enough to get a sig apparently) and I thought I'd share some of the acoustic covers I do. They're all one take videos on Youtube. It's mostly alternative and punk pop stuff.

Anyway, thanks to all who watch. Feel free to ridicule me mercilessly.

For "I Will Follow You Into the Dark"

Damn man, that was really good. I've never heard the original but your singing fits it perfectly. You have a great voice.

Thank you man. I appreciate it. Funny thing is, I've only heard the song a handful of times, it's simple enough to pick up really quick though.

I really enjoyed 'out of reach'

The playing was nice and clear, and the transition between chords very quick and smooth
The singing was equally impressive, well done sir!

This is definitely not a criticism, but perhaps you could try a little reverb on the vocals, just to see what it's like, it would be excellent to post a video like that too!

I play metal (older iron maiden), and although its different, i would like a little advice on singing and playing at the same time too.

well done once again dude!


btw, id much appreciate a crit of the song that i covered, link just below, cheers!

Hey thanks everybody.

For those wondering about playing and singing at the same time, here are a couple things that help me.

-Practice, obviously. Usually I try to commit the guitar part to memory before I even try to learn the lyrics.

-Know the song. With the more complicated stuff, I usually listen to the song A LOT. It also helps you pick up on all the nuances in the playing/singing.

I had something else but I forgot it, haha. Maybe later. Once you start practicing doing both at the same time, it'll become second nature though, so keep trying.

Thanks again.

you should do a cover of black dresses from the spill canvas

keep up the great work man. I'll do my best to learn to play and sing at the same time but it's just so difficult. I can play the tide perfectly but when i try to sing to it i mess up the strumming patterns.

Hey, love your stuff. Just wondering, what equipment do u use? Like what mic/audio interface/etc? If it's not a secret of course haha
Oh, I'll break them down, no mercy shown,
Heaven knows, it's got to be this time,
Watching her, these things she said,
The times she cried,
Too frail to wake this time.

Had me laughing in the beginning of the "Slide" video. Good song, good cover. Cheers!

Thank you. On the more recent/better quality stuff, I'm using an AKG Perception 100 Condenser mic through a Behringer Tube Ultragain 100 Pre-Amp. The acoustic is a Breedlove AD25/SR Plus. I recently got a Macbook so now I just use the line in to record directly into iMovie. Works great with Garageband too.

Wow dude, I REALLY, REALLY like that cover of Slide. I love the Goo Goo Dolls, and to say you did that song justice is an understatement, GREAT!
F.U.B.A.R.
