Listen to I'd Rather Be With You - Joshua Radin Cover by Bhavay Wadhwa #np on #SoundCloud
https://soundcloud.com/bhavay-wadhwa/id-rather-be-with-you-joshua-radin-cover

I have tried to cover it in my style. Adding some percussion as i always do please give it a listen and tell me how do you like it.  Cheers!

Hey there,

I enjoyed the singing and playing. Sounded clean and consistent to me. Maybe to improve think about how to vary the dynamics a bit, maybe strumming the chorus, or varying volume.

As for percussion, I found it a little distracting.  For me it didn't seem to fit this arrangement.

Cheers, David

The easy rolling finger picking is great from the outset.
You hold a good rhythm and accompaniment for your vocal which is also good to listen to.
Overall a really nice listen.

Very solid fingerpicking. You kept the rhythm solid all the way through. Vocals are nice and clear. All round good job.

On a very minor note and purely personally, I thought the percussion slap was a bit intrusive on this track. I'm being really picky here but IMHO a shaker might have been more subtle and in keeping with the essence of the song.

Yes yes.. I gotta fix that.. Tried to record percussion for the first time.. Got a lot to learn in that respect.. The guitar playing would be good in my every recording i can promise that
