I tried to post that last one here (http://justinguitarcommunity.com/index.php?topic=23631.30) but the thread never came back to life. :(





Maybe not as legit as Postmodern Jukebox, but still fun.

Post by: FChris on March 27, 2014, 09:00:48 am
I kinda feel like I got to hide for this one, but I still think it is really awesome.

Usually I don't like miley cyrus' music at all but this cover touched me for whatever reason.
Maybe it is just because I love the song no matter who sings it as long as it is done well. And I for my part have to say, this one is well done.

I just came bac kfrom band rehearsal where I used my Shure 55sh today...that's the model of mic miley Cyrus is singing in.

The clip gave me a very "unline" feeling and at 01:15 she sings on and away of the mic....
And still the volume was very consistent
I did that by accident too and I lost too much volume...

or there was a lot of production in it or it was just a playback setup.

The mindy smith version had an original touch and she has a nice voice but the song missed some serious balls. ;)

Sorry I only believe it when this guy is singing it
jack white: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kS60oTRxh0g (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kS60oTRxh0g)

You know Likke li with "I follow rivers"? well, actually she isn't that much of a singer.
Throw it in the hands of Triggerfinger. See them recording it at a Dutch radio show.





I never liked "sweet dreams" that much but Triggerfingers frontman Ruben Block makes it just right:





ah k; didn't know this song but after checking the original by Rihanna, I made my choice.

Lieven, I don't think it's a SH55. I don't know what it is, but I think it's a large diaphragm dynamic microphone. If not that it might be a condenser, but I've never seen a condenser that looks like that.

I like that version of Sweet Dreams, thanks for sharing.

Lieven, I don't think it's a SH55.

well I trust your judgement in identifying mics.
(if it's not, it surely looks like one)

Well, at least, when she's singing in it, at least it's at the correct spot.
It turned out to be the solution for keeping out the bleed of our leadguitarists' amp :)

Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: LievenDV on April 16, 2014, 08:07:16 am
Sm58's present at the rehearsal room. It's a small shack and acoustically not the best but I thought sm58 were uni, not omni, right? ( and my spot is head to head with the Guitarist, with several meters  between)
Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: Scooter Trash on April 16, 2014, 12:07:55 pm

Yes, they're both cardoid. Similar pickup patterns and frequency response. I might be misunderstanding. When you said; "It turned out to be the solution for keeping out the bleed of our leadguitarists' amp" were you suggesting that it was because of the 55?

I'm not sure which Shure you are looking at but the one on Jolene is a 55sh.

The 55sh and sm58 are both cardioid dynamics. Both actually have very similar polar patterns but he 55 rejects a bit more and the frequency response of the two are different.

But if you mean the MC video,,, I'm sure they are not recording out in that field. that is a studio sound and probably not even the mic they used.

Well, yeah, the frequency responses are different..  :o  But similar. What I'm getting at is that there's no low-pass or high-pass filter on the mic. There's no boost switch. They're both cardioid. "Cardioid" got it's name from the "heart-shaped" polar response pattern. Could it really be that different? 

This is a 55:
(http://www.coutant.org/shure55/55sh3.gif)

This is a 58:
(http://www.coutant.org/sm58/sm58polr.gif)

The 58 looks like it has better rear rejection..

I can see switching from a 58 to a beta 58 (or some other supercardioid or hypercardioid mic) somewhat reducing some bleed.. but going from a 58 to a 55 being "the solution for keeping out the bleed of our leadguitarists' amp" ??

I must be missing something.
Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: TB-AV on April 16, 2014, 02:52:43 pm
I'm not disagreeing with you.

I agree... from specs... it doesn't seem that it would be the cure for guitar amp bleed unless, like he said the room has problems at specific frequencies that the 55 rejects better. Like below 200 where it looks like the 55 has a at least a few dB better rejection ( if I'm seeing those dots correctly,,, which I may not be ).

The 58 also has 4dB better sensitivity. So that gives you maybe 8dB below 200Hz.. or 4dB at other problem frequencies. It's quite possible that the 58 has a peak where the room has a peak and maybe the 55 has a dip... So you have as much as a 10dB difference fairly easily. Luck of the draw perhaps... but real none the less.

That might be.. but guitar is fairly broad-spectrum and usually what's excessive or lacking in frequency response gets compensated for on the console EQ. I've just never found using different mics with similar polar patterns to be a solution for bleed. Usually only gating, isolation, mic placement and/or reducing volume helps with that.
Title: Re: Awesome covers

Yeah, I agree... it doesn't seem like it would work. I'm just tossing out possibilities.

Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: Borodog on April 16, 2014, 03:25:02 pm
The 55sh and sm58 have radically different form factors. It could simply be a matter of where they had the back end of the sm58 pointed on the mic stand. If it was pointed at the ground instead of the amp the bleed could greatly enhanced.

Yeah, I had considered that.. there might be a null in a certain area from phase cancellations and the 55's position is now in that area.. would have to be a big hole though.. and it wouldn't be the mic reducing the bleed.. it would be the mic placement.. anyhow.. sorry for getting the thread off-topic.. I was just very surprised that the mic could have made much of a difference in bleed and thought that maybe I was misunderstanding.
Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: LievenDV on April 16, 2014, 03:39:46 pm
The 58 was angled the same way as the 55, mic levels the same etc..
the amp was behind the mic, in a straight line wit its orientation.
The setup was identical.
the 58 picked up too much amp, the 55 kept it down.

I already noticed that you need to be closer to the 55 then the 58
If the one MC is "supposed" to be using is a 55, as I presume watching the vid, the would be missing it at 01:15.

They use that mic for presentation but it isn't the best mic but it served well because of these circumstances :) btw, I've got an old style stand now too and it looks cool on it.

I thought they were very similar but if you run into this problem with these 58's being "too good at picking up", you could try another mic, like this :)

Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: TB-AV on April 16, 2014, 03:43:18 pm
I think that mic has a lot more foam in it too. Might be helping.
Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: Scooter Trash on April 16, 2014, 03:54:25 pm
Thanks Leiven.
Do you have a way to do an A/B recording of the two mics while the guitar is playing? I'd be very interested to hear the difference in bleed between the two.

I already noticed that you need to be closer to the 55 then the 58

The sensitivity between the two is slightly different:

58 Sensitivity
–54.5 dBV/Pa (1.85 mV)
1 Pa = 94 dB SPL

55 Sensitivity
−53.0 dBV/Pa (1.85 mV)
1 Pal=94 dB SPL

Proximity will significantly change signal/noise ratio.. I suspect that if you're closer up on the 55 that it might have a lot to do with the reduction in bleed.
Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: TB-AV on April 16, 2014, 03:59:08 pm
Shure web site for 55sh s II shows ...

−58.0 dBV/Pa
1 Pascal=94 dB SPL
Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: Scooter Trash on April 16, 2014, 04:03:58 pm
Shure web site for 55sh s II shows ...

−58.0 dBV/Pa
1 Pascal=94 dB SPL

I was looking at that Super 55 sensitivity, not the SHII. That's quite a difference. Yeah, reducing the sensitivity and the proximity would make a difference in the bleed. The gain is going to be made up for at the pre though.. I have a feeling the bleed reduction is the result of closer proximity. Unless you're recording (with isolation) and looking for the sweet spot for the mic.. closer proximity is nearly always better for live. The lows from the proximity can be eq'd out if need be, but the bleed can't be removed. There's also more gain before feedback with closer proximity.
Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: TB-AV on April 16, 2014, 04:07:50 pm
Yes, I would suspect they are not making up gain.... other than by proximity....

That's what I was mentioning above with the dB figures... you could reason out from specs 4 to 8 to maybe even 10dB but I failed to mention that provided they don't make that gain up except by his actually proximity and use of the mic then it could make a difference.

IOW, there are enough subtle difference that if things are just right.

58 - flat from 1K down and rolls at 100

55 - scooped a bit from 1K down and rolls at 200

Oh no, they are clearly there. I can see them easily. Same with the Keys players. Just play it at full screen.

The guys showing their emotions were the remaining members of Led Zeppelin. Robert Plant was brought to tears. A couple things that were very kewl about that performance are that their deceased drummer; John Bonham's Son was was playing his dad's drum kit. The hats that were worn were a tribute to the the bowler hat that John Bonham often wore. It must have been quite emotional for them all.. especially when the curtain was raised revealing the choir all wearing the bowler hats. Epic performance! And phenomenal production.

Ooh I hadn't heard that one! Very nice! I like Nickel Creek too, though my very favourite bluegrassy thing in the world is Chris Eldridge's side project with Julian Lage. This is technically still on topic for the thread, as it is a Seldom Scene cover ;)



Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: Cue Zephyr on June 17, 2014, 10:49:01 pm
Those solos are absolutely nuts! Superb!

Have you heard Nickel Creek's most recent album? I.e. ever since they got back together a few months back? That was really quite interesting - I had just liked their page on Facebook despite knowing that they disbanded. A few days/weeks later I saw the announcement that they were getting the band back together. I wish I could see them but they wouldn't sell many tickets in The Netherlands I'm afraid.

To stay on topic - here's Hayloft off of said album, originally a Mother Mother song. I'd call it more poppy than bluegrassy, but I like it.


Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: pipsickle on June 18, 2014, 10:06:48 am
I haven't heard it, but saw from Chris Thile's twitter that there was another Nickel Creek album (and incidentally that Punch Bros are currently recording their next!). I should check it out.  I'm in London so really spoilt with the bands that come through here! My next gig is the Jayhawks next month. I'm super excited :D

I'm terrible at trying to pick out chords people are playing (that should be an instructional video series of its own). I do love that song and cover though, and he's doing a great job with the 'boot bass' keeping the song grounded. That's a cool street technique to pick up.
Title: Re: Awesome covers
Post by: TB-AV on July 08, 2014, 02:11:58 pm
@Scooter... my eyesight not so good on this one and forgetting about the capo.... it looks like he is playing maybe a Bb minor or Bbm7  -- which is E Shape and the chord name may be off due to capo.

Also it looks like he plays an A shape with 3 fingers AND index on the high e only... that is a Dd again adjust for capo up or down a note.

Then an F

Let's see.. if you play C G Am F

He plays an F and it looks like capo so F#, then a Db would be a D, the Bb would be a B

D, - , Bm, F#  ... and doesn't he play an A So D A Bm F#  maybe that F# is a G... Anyway it looks like he is playing the same thing you do only pitched up a whole tone.

The only unusual chord is the three finger A shape

That guy actually sounds a bit like Bob.

No one does a good GnR cover, right?




Yeah, but clearly they can't do that and follow it up with a solid AC/DC cover




Skid Row? Ok




One could spend hours looking up their covers. Lady Gaga, Daft Punk, Pat Benetar, Fleetwood Mac, Cinderella, Marylin Manson, and loads of others.

His awesomeness in butchering one of the most beautiful songs ever written is outstanding. Man... that really was not what I was expecting.

Different strokes I suppose...  I wish he had showed off only some of his skills and not put all of them on one song.

He needs to listen to some of Justin's sublime and tasty guitar playing on the WCAS CDs. Maybe pick up a few pointers.

This offering sounds a 1000% better in my opinion.
yeah nice one.

The thing i like about hes little wing cover is that he took it and changed it to a more modern sound, thats what i like about it, you can search youtube for little wing and they all sound the same more or less, he had the guts to break (the mold) a wing .  :)

Post by: TB-AV on August 17, 2014, 06:43:45 pm
Yeah, I've watched the YT vids of kids jumping off their roof into a swimming pool and missing. They had guts too.

Little Wing, imo, simply deserves the respect to be performed with adequate reflection towards the original, which as you say, this one lacks.

To me his sounds like he really didn't learn the song and then simply mixed what he did learn with some Van Halen stuff or something. He's certainly got some chops and I just see no reason to have gone there with that particular song.

Somebody sent it to me - otherwise I wouldn't have found it either, and then found it back a little later. I remembered it and wanted to listen to it again immediately. It sure is haunting, but in an utterly beautiful way.

The Weissenborn is basically an acoustic lap-style slide guitar. I suppose it came into existence first in Hawaii, as they're all made of Hawaiian koa wood. They're lightly built (AFAIK) and use slightly lower tension tunings (like open G - DGDGBD or open D etc) than the other kind of acoustic lap-style guitar would use (the dobro using open G - GBDGBD). I wonder what it would sound like on a dobro. ;D

Are you having memory issues? I just posted him playing another song just above.

I was not impressed with his Little Wing cover.... he's obviously a very good player. I'm sorry if his cover of Little Wing doesn't send me. It's just one person's opinion. The rest of the stuff I have heard him play sounds way better to me.

So I have one opinion on his Little Wing song that was posted back a page and all else very positive about him. Maybe he has even done a better version of Little Wing... I'm sorry.. not a better version... a version that I would like better.

You really should not place so much gravity in the fact that I think that one YT video is less than stellar. It's not a character assignation it just means I didn't like that one video. Nothing more.

I thought I made that clear when I posted another video from him that I felt really demonstrated his skills.

So when you quote me it seems odd that you refer to him as "this guy" like we haven't already discussed him??

Anyway... just so you are clear... The kid is fine by me. Really nice chops as I said last page. The Little Wing vid you posted, simply not for me.

So for the record MattRach is ok by me.. .good player.. Eyes open, closed, makes no difference to me.

Michaal the guy from your vid needs to get on one of those shows if he doesn't already have a contract.  It always surprises me to see or hear such talent and know these people are not famous yet for some strange reason.  It's not like we don't have room in the music industry to add as many talented people as we want to.

I was mixing monitors on an outdoor show in California somewhere on the 4th of July in 2000. Glen Campbell was the opener and I was mixing every act EXCEPT Glen Campbell. When he was done with his set, his monitor engineer muted every single mute button he could find on the Alan and Heath console. Since it was an outdoor show and the lights were shining on the console, I couldn't see the mute lights. The next act came on.. I was up. I had gotten sound checks and had a good idea where to start for each act. I PFL'd my cue wedge and had the mics in it. Band starts.. NO MONIORS!! I checked the amps.. they had power lights. I checked the outboard rack, all the power lights and volumes were up.. WTF!  Finally, I put my hand over the mute lights to shield them from the sun and there they were, lit up like a Christmas tree.. It's was one of the most stressful 15 or 30 seconds of my life..

I loved the cover - but what I loved even more was seeing how much he still enjoys playing guitar. He was completely in his element, comfortable, and looked genuinely happy.  :)

I think he plays for other people. I was thinking Bryan Ferry but I think that was Robin Trower... but I thought PF was playing with some other big name... maybe not.

He may do session work, but this is his band: http://www.frampton.com/band/ (http://www.frampton.com/band/)

I've been following him on Facebook for a couple years. I think he just finished a tour with Cheap Trick.

That's really good. I love the almost percussive nature of the vocals.

Ok, it's a little dorky, but Brand New Key is one of my favorite cover songs. I just love to see how new generations do it. It's such an innocent sounding song, but the metaphor is anything but.

Rasputina performing. This was early to mid 90s based on costume and cellists. It's not a great recording, but captures the live feel.




The Dollyrots. Not sure the year on this, but post 2005. Is it sad to say this is one of my favorite bands?

If you do not know The Backyard Sessions you should check it out on youtube. Loads of good stuff there.
I am not a big fan of Miley Cyrus per se but I think she made a great cover of Jolene:

I heard this amazing cover of Wonderwall when I was in London yesterday. Some lady very close to whichever bridge that was. Didn't record it and didn't notice any name or anything either.

There was however a pretty cool guy with a nice voice doing some cool covers very close to the Big Ben. I think I have a name somewhere but I'll have to check my pictures. :D

Been nosing around at what can be done with Cigar box guitars thinking they were a bit limited to bluesy stuff and found this - one of my fav bands and not a bad rendition.

Hello, first post! I always watch this video when I need a bit of cheering up. When I Kissed The Teacher is one of my favourite ABBA songs. So when I saw this, it just made my day. Make sure you watch right to the end for the punchy dance moves.

ohhh I can't post external links it seems. OK, so go to Youtube and search for 'when I kissed the teacher the bottles'. And tell me what you think-- I'd love to play this version but I'm still in my first week of the beginner course  :-*

That sounds so lovely. I especially like the intro. The soft texture of the mandolin and the layered melodies works very well together. I find it interesting how there are 'soft' instruments, and no matter how 'hard' you play them, or how fast, they still are soft compared to others. Which goes to show how different instruments possess unique attributes to creating sound, and how important it is to choose an instrument that resonates with you personally.
