Timbre, dynamic and your own twists on the phrases (which show great musicality) are excellent, to say the least! Haha!

I bet you're inspired by Ryan Adams, so I understand that it might be a conscious act (aesthetics), but some words/phrases strike me as a tiny bit too muffled/sloppy enunciated. It's a tough balancing act, and of course subjective, but that's the only "bad" thing I can write about! :)

But all in all, extremely good! I've listened to it like 5 times, and that speaks for itself! :D

Sounded pretty good. I am not at all agaist taking a song and putting your interpretation to it.

Most of the time artists are given a song from a writer, maybe a demo with just the words and melody, and they build it from there.

Where would we be if Janice Joplin decided not to sing Bobby McGee because she couldn't sing it her way and we only had the original by Kris Kristopherson?

Great job. And a very fitting interpretation of the song.

Thanks for taking the time Enander.

Ive definatly got a bit of a lazy tongue :P and sometimes when concentrating on the soft palette i forget about other things. its definitely a balancing act for sure.

:)

Haha! My tongue is just as lazy! Probably why I noticed yours! :D

I totally know the feeling! It feels like you, mentally, need to be at two places at once, so to speak.

Wow! Really cool interpretation! I think the only acoustic version of Iron Maiden I've ever heard was Wasting Love, but it still reminded me of the original. Your version, however, doesn't make me think of Iron Maiden at all. It could well be your own song. I also liked the tone you kept during the song. Very good job man!

Thanks ron, Olem and Jens for listening and your comments.

All of your praise seems a bit undeserved to me, i'm really pleased you enjoyed it. I'm doing a few songs at a local open mic tonight so i'll add this one to the list for sure and hope it goes down as well.
