Nice one Amelie. We play it in my band in a somewhat faster version, but I think it works quite well in that pace too.

Well played Amelie! Great vocal and guitar pretty solid.

A little constructive criticism would be to work a little more on the groove without singing. It's good but just occasionally it wobbles  a little when you think about the vocal :)

Thanks for sharing!

Well done Amelie, Janis Joplin is one of my favourite female singers, she gave all!!!
You definitely did it justice, keep them coming :)

I wanted to wait until I could watch / listen / absorb before watching / listening / absorbing.
You are coming on in leaps and bounds. Your confidence is obvious in the way you tackle songs that are simple but need something big to carry them off (as Janis Joplin does with her version of this). You accompany yourself really well, and your vocal is what makes this song. If you want to become more than just an accompanist on guitar but to develop the art and craft of using it, alongside your voice, to make statements, then a little fine tuning over time (months/ years) will take you there. Tempo, timing, rhythm and groove are the bedrock of all of that so work on those aspects as part of your practice schedule.

BIG BIG SMILES for kicking off this whole monthly competition with the very first entry. That takes some courage all itself. Well done. And Good Vibes too of course.
