Thanks. I'll catch up on listening and leave you some comments on YouTube or here soon.

Re: MARCH 2018 FSOTM - MALE & FEMALE NAMES

Zurf ....  thoroughly enjoyed it and liked how you performed it smile   No worries it wasn't on the list, I know it is hard to get time to practice new stuff sometimes, I have had a hard time getting any done myself the last few  months.  The main thing is, you stuck to the theme which was a name, male or female in the song or title, so all good smile

Re: MARCH 2018 FSOTM - MALE & FEMALE NAMES

neo ... had a listen to both.  ~Rome and Juliet~  you covered and performed so well, it suited you very much vocally (probably your best yet in my opinion) and also you played it very well on the guitar.  I liked the video visually how you added the blurry screen around it (which program did you use to video record it like that?).  Excellent cover by you, the whole package.
~Joey-Concrete Blonde~ I hadn`t actually heard this song before  so after listening to your cover I went online and listened to the original version.  Maybe one comment would be a little to much echo on your recording? but then I am no expert, just how it sounded to my ear smile

Thanks for your comments - I try and keep it simple by recording the video on my iPhone (5se), then transfer that across to the Mac and use iMovie to add the reverb/echo, titles and any video effects - iMovie is a pretty basic program, and I'm sure I've hit the limits on what it can do (some time ago), but for a freebie it's pretty good. Unfortunately there is no 'granular' control over the , which gives the 'too much echo' scenario ... one day I'll get my audio interface out, record the audio into Logic on the Mac (as separate channels), which I'll then be able to tweak correctly, but then I'll probably get carried away and add drums and bass to the mix ...

Cheers

Re: MARCH 2018 FSOTM - MALE & FEMALE NAMES

neo ... thanks for that re the info on Imovie  ... I will have to have a look at the program at some stage. I remember some of the other visuals you did on some of your other songs on you tube which were good too but that one really was good for that particular song I thought.   Bit the same with the echo, which on other songs you have done sounded really good so I wonder if it depend on the song choice?  Interesting anyway how it works aye smile

Re: MARCH 2018 FSOTM - MALE & FEMALE NAMES

Ok, I recorded another one tonight at 10.30pm, figured it is the only time before the end of this month that I am going to get a chance to do another Cover from the list above.  Gee wish I had more time as there are quite a few I would like to attempt on that list.  Anyway, outta time for me. 

So here is my attempt at Angie by the Rolling Stones, 'mistakes' and all which you will hear after my 3rd attempt as it was getting late, my hubby in bed trying to sleep and I am in here singing and strumming loudly (poor guy lol).   Anyway, kinda a funny song to sing since it is meant to be a guy singing a song about a woman and here I am singing it lol .... oh well I like the song, it was a fun song to try and cover.  Just wish I had more time to practice this one.

Yes, but it can also depend on so many other things, like the listeners mood (are they receptive to the idea?), the screen settings (does it do it justice), and the song (do I like this song, am I ready to view an interpretation of it), I've found the same thing with echo/reverb - sometimes you get that perfect speed which enhances the song, as it's on the same frequency as the original chord vibrations, othertimes it can make it sound 'muddy' ....

Jolene sounds pretty good - it was a bit slower than I remember it being, but your voice suited the song well ...

I think I commented on this one before (possibly in the previous FSOTM smile ), but I still like this one, I hadn't heard it before being on Chordie ...

Sounds pretty good, I was also feeling the 'gender imbalance' when I did 'Joey', as it's a girl singing to a guy, so I just imagined it was for 'Josephine', or something like that wink

Thanks for the feedback; hope you can add some of your recordings to the mix (next month has been nominated to have some instrumentals, so if you did the recording of "Dueling Banjos", it's the perfect time to link to it ...)

It's always a pleasure to listen to your tunes - hoping you drag out the electric, when time permits ...
