Rossco, Had a couple of listens and really enjoyed the performances, especially the second one.  Hope to see you posting more frequently.

Hi Rossco

Tx for covering this song. I have never heard it before. I enjoyed your playing.  Your vocals are very nice, that combined with solid strumming produced a very good overall sound.

I am currently working hard on getting the F barre chord down quicky and precisely. I am fingerpicking instead of strumming so important to get each note down very well. One aspect of your F barre that you may want to think about is laying down all fingers simultaneously. With some of your other chords I also notice the tendency to lay down one finger after the other.

If i recall correctly, Justin talks about doing/practicing air changes. The idea behind air changes is to form the full chord in the air, above the strings and then press down with all fingers in place. I think it is important to build muscle memory in that way instead of a one finger at a time approach.

Good luck with your guitar journey, looking forward to your next recording.

Cheers
B

Thanks for sharing this puppy! Your second version absolutely knocked it out of the park... Tompkins Square Park! I'll get my coat... :-X

I loved M&S first two albums but completely went off them with their third album and shift in sound. Having had a few listens to this cover my interest in them has been piqued again and I've revisited Wilder Mind to find I actually quite like the album now; this song in particular. So thanks for opening my eyes to M&S again. I should probably go and check out their fourth album now...

I hope you take the time to post more of your stuff in the near future. Good vibes for resurfacing! :)

The second version was much better, the guitar work and singing was good and the percussive hits were much better sounding in the 2nd.

Nice one Rossco, good to have you back in AVOYP again! I liked this one a lot, solid strumming and your singing is really good. Dont know the song, but sounds good. Keep it up, looking forward to some more covers from you.

Took in what I think is the second offering... Thanks for the gear run down and your signal chain. Sounded like a good effort on this end and was pleasing to the ears!

Take good care as you rock it down your way!
