Default My cover of The Byrds....

Hello, Beatlelinkers!

As some of you may know, I've been known to strum a guitar from time to time. ... and recently, I got the itch to record my favorite song by The Byrds.

I've turned it into a Youtube "video". Here it is:

LOL, of course. You do a great cover here! Can you share more about how you put it together? You are playing all the instruments? How about the backing vocals, are those all you?

Yeah, it's all me...

Vocals, background vocals, rhythm guitar, lead 12-string guitar, bass, and drums & percussion generated by a keyboard.

I recorded it on my digital 8-track.

Ha ha! You mean you don't like the message behind the lyrics?

I always loved them... they're a classic rock and roll sentiment: disillusionment in love with touches of both resignation and vindictiveness.

Hey cool!! My band does this song and I love it. You have a really nice voice! :) What kind of recording equipment do you use? I'm thinking of investing in an inexpensive 4 or 8 track recorder to make some demos, but I don't know which one to get!

Depends on which mood you are in....
Hey.... I'm a lyrics girl...
But I really like the way you covered it! Sounds great and knowing you did all this by yourself... I can only say:
We want more !
We want more !
We want more !


The reason why, oh, I can say
I have to let you go, babe, and right away
After what you did I can't stay on
And I'll probably feel a whole lot better when you're gone

Baby, for a long time you had me believe
That your love was all mine and that's the way it would be
But I didn't know that you were putting me on
And I'll probably feel a whole lot better when you're gone
When you're gone

Now, I've got to say that it's not like before
And I'm not gonna play your games any more
After what you did I can't stay on
And I'll probably feel a whole lot better when you're gone
Oh, when you're gone, oh, when you're gone
Oh, when you're gone

Excellent!

I love the Byrds, who came in on the cusp of the Falcon/Dart Era. My favorite is "All I Really Wanna Do," their GEM from 1965!

Very good,
I really like Tom Petty and a "Feel a whole lot better" is certainly one of his, eh. Well he does a great cover.
Yours is fantastic Hof, thanks for sharing your output.

Is it only Byrds you do or other covers as well?

Damn... I can't believe I just discovered this thread.

Color me impressed! I'm a Byrds fan and I have to say you really nailed it... the guitar sound, the vocal, the overall vibe. WOW!
