Rolandson, great rhythm and strumming. All the chord changes sounded clean. I'm really impressed at your improvement. Good job!

Fine performance,  Rolandson.  Good clean playing, sounding good and you did well phrasing the lyrics, delivered with feeling.

Well done mate.  I just love this song and the style it's written in.   It's a song that I find challenging to sing but I guess when we compare ourselves to someone like Chris Isaac it's easy to be self critical.   I thought you did a good job with the vocals and your guitar playing was really solid.   
.
Nice one

Nice guitar on this, Rolandson. This one’s on my to learn list. I won’t be attempting any vocals though. Good vibes to you for making the effort!

I liked that Rolandson. The vocals has a very personal style and with some more practice they can become good. Still some pitch problems but much improved. Guitar sounded really nice. Well done!

Good playing Rolandson & I could hear some emotion in your vocals. Keep working on the pitch. I hear improvement.

Well done for kicking off the competition Roland and migrating over from the AVOYP section  :)
I'm not a particular fan of this song, but your guitar playing was solid (The first two note bends reminded me of Ry Cooder/Paris Texas 8))
I agree there was distinct emotion to be heard in the vocals, so kudos for that.
Hope you meet the big man!
Keep rockin' \m/

Rolandson,
Big improvement on the playing, chords were crisp and clean. As Loefgren said the pitch strayed a bit, but you have the makings of a personal style in the Lou Reed sort of mould. Keep working on the delivery and I'm looking forward to further development. Thanks for entering this for us - let's have video next time!

Thank you.
I'm not doing that to win.
I don't even have the stuff for meeting the big man. No skype or camera on my laptop.

Really nicely played Roland - lovely sound from the guitar - solid rhythm in the strumming. As others have mentioned the vocals may need a little work - but you sing it with passion. Well done.

Nice playing rolandson I thought it was very crisp. Muted hit sounded very well controlled as well. Good job on this.

Strumming mostly steady and confident, would be enhanced with with variation in the actual rhythm patterns and attack / dynamics of the striking of your guitar strings. Vocal pitching is also improving. Your phrasing continues to be notably behind the beat or in front of the beat and you do need to take all previous advice given about listening intently to the originals and playing / singing along with them to sharpen your vocal delivery.

Sorry for being late to the party. I've never listened to this song before. But from what I heard on the original, this is definitely very challenging vocally. You did good considering this. Your guitar work was as solid as always. Nice entry overall! :)

Nice sound of the guitar and cool idea to record in a black room ;)

you're making great improvements here dude, keep at it! rhythm is very strong and the chords sounding clear  - some of the vocal phrasing 9the rhythm of the voice) could do with some work now the guitar rhythm is strong! :)
