The playing and singing was great, I missed the usual video performance though.

Jono,
Putting together a video can take easily 2-3 times more time or longer than the song itself. Lets see what Kevin says about it. But his vids are very good and may take much more time than that.

Just thought you might want to know why he may not at times do the full number on his productions.  ;)

Rockin and thinkin about a new song!

Great to see and hear you play a straight up self-accompanied live acoustic song.
And what a good performance you give.
Keep on building that repertoire and do let us know when your first live performance is going to be.

Thanks so much for all these amazing comments, I am really grateful, thank you.

For the the them playing on the D, I think I am just putting the upper strings, not really playing the F# note. I started  guitar by myself and a bit like Hendrix position of the hand (not his playing though , god I wish haha).


Playlist is not really big as I am only starting this but I have got currently
1)Country Honk - Rolling Stones
2)Layla - Clapton (I am playing this one in a bar next Tuesday, I will do only one song though as there are going to be lots of singers).
3)High Flying Bird
4) Jesus Ranch Tenacious (that I posted few months ago)

Also working on
- Plush - Stones Temples Pilots (some difficult parts I need to work on, but I love this song)
- one French song (not so difficult but not sure what key I should sing this one),

Then I have got few ideas  (foo fighters, dead flowers -Rolling Stones) but did not practice the songs enough so I will see.



Indeed the "movies" takes me quite a lot of times, but that is really cool at the end. One should be coming pretty soon  ;), just need to find some ideas first.

Thank you  :D

Best wishes for the gig next Tuesday, Kevin.

I would love a video like this one of you playing Layla (and the other songs on the list) (and any other songs you care to perform and record like that).

I do enjoy the rocking down videos as well but I personally have great affinity for this acoustic singer/player performance ... suppose because it is the aspiration I am closest to being able to deliver.

Appreciate all your sharing here.

Thanks a lot David. It's a totally difference atmosphere and I like acoustic version of songs too. I think I will record in the same way songs regularly. Might try Layla pretty soon then, I wanted to do so before Tuesday but I am a bit sick right now  :(, it will be ok for Tuesday ;)

Thanks a lot

Loved your performance. As you said not what you usually post but I think it really allows us to see the performer in you. I would love to see the whole set live.
Cheers,
Glen

I did not know this song but I liked it. Guitar sounds awesome and you just look so comfortable. Look forward to hearing layla but I know it will make me jealous. I can sort of play it but not all the parts at the same time in the same take. It's an awesome song.

Another child of the 60's-70's that loved EJ's early stuff and then pick and choose from his later songs.

Don't recall hearing HFB but from the beginning of your video it screamed Elton.  Loved your performance, awesome vocal and the guitar was spot on with the feel.  The quality of the sound on the recording is brilliant.   

Have to agree with the others, you are more than ready to perform live.  I know I'd enjoy seeing you do a live show  :)
