Nice one Boro.  Light easy strumming and a good vocal too with just that little percussion towards the end, very enjoyable.  :)

Thats really good. I love this song.

I know I should work it out myself but what's the strumming pattern? I'm pretty new to guitar and I can't work these out by ear yet.

Hi Borodog,

enjoyed that. I don't know the song but after listening to your version I checked it out. Must say I preferred your version.

Hey Dog great cover ! Think your vocals really suited the old KR track and real tight playing to produce a well balanced track.  8)

classic! great :)

note: I think you're tuning went off more often than your previous production.
It -is- a harder song than it seems though so I get where it comes from here and there.

Great trajectory. You've got tons of momentum so don't let that train slow down!

You've got a really suitable bounce-along groove on your strumming.
On songs like this - with such a story-telling narrative - it brings them to life.
Congrats.
Really good job.

Another solid entry here Boro!

Well recorded, played and sung. One thing on the rhythm is when you play the bass note on the 1 it's worth trying to bring it out a bit - sometimes here the '1' is a bit quiet compared with the strums and it's almost reggae (where they rarely play on 1!). Probably not helped by listening on my laptop speakers where there's less bass, but woth bearing in mind.

Liked the rhythm breakdown in the bridge bit too.

Well done :)
