All's not fair in love and war (Richard Mortimer): https://youtu.be/edKCo_WKa3I

This is another of my old originals, which starts "Daylight shatters jaded reality ....", so qualifies for this moth's FSOTM.

Copy of the song is here in case anyone wants to cover it: https://www.chordie.com/forum/viewtopic … 18#p192518

Neo .... I am seeing double big_smile  "That`s entertainment" a song once again I don`t know personally but I never listened to punk type music much anyway.  So I popped on to listen to the original and you did a good job of covering it.
Your song "All`s not fair in Love and War", that`s so well written.  You seem to have a talent for writing songs.  Great lyrics smile

Re: MAY 2018 FSOTM - LIGHT

neo ........... lol glad you got it regarding "seeing double" smile
The song A trick of the light (Triffids) once again I don`t know that song but will endeavour to have a listen to it.
Light my fire (Doors) your guitar playing on this one was great, well done.
Ziggy Stardust (David Bowie) was brilliantly played on guitar and vocally probably one of your best yet.

Traveling light was really cool - liked it a lot. I had never heard of that song - your superb performance as usual!


Neo - One of my fave songs of all time--    you did it very nicely !   You are so calm and relaxed when you play - i wish I could be as such - I always get so nervous when I record or play in front of someone. 

Thanks for sharing guys - very well done.

Thank you ... it's always interesting to hear others views - I'm usually nervous, but less so in front of the camera than in front of people smile

I remember one time a woman said the same yhing to me; it was just after I was recording an acoustic song for the "Bert Newton's Good Morning Australia" (as I think it was called then) - the studio of Channel 10 was recording me in Perth for the Melbourne show (which airs nationally), and I was sat in a largish room on a stool, and these two big TV camera's were being dolly'd around the room, one guy on the camera, and one guy on the dolly. It was just after my duo had broken up, and I wasn't used to singing (prior to the duo, I used to sing, but was out of practice) - anyhow, I remember being in this big fairly bare room, and playing Margaret's Eulogy - and concentrating on some guitar bit, when I looked up and the guy had the camera right in my face ... when I get nervous my left leg tends to bounce up and down - and boy did it start bouncing then, but I managed to pull through it and I'm sure I started to sweat up a storm. Anyway, song over, I went back to the green room and the lady there said "wow, you looked so calm and relaxed", and I just smiled.

Once you can fake confidence, you can do it again smile

Cheers

Richard (sorry for the rambling story!)
