Cover // Older Chests - Damien Rice
« on: March 15, 2019, 11:57:15 am »
Hey there :)

Finally had the time to record something today. The song is written by Damien Rice and I played it for the first time last week and I have memorized it by now :)  I'm still experimenting with the last chorus though, but I wanted it to share with you anyway :)





PS: Be careful when listening with headphones, I couldn't check yet if there are any spikes in volume

PPS: There are 2 covers of songs in German over at my channel, if anyone is interested in that (I've posted them in my Road Case 2 weeks ago)

Gosh Max, I had to get up pretty early to take this one in first.. Really like this and your vocals please as always. You got a sweet spot to record in for sure.

Keep it going and looking for more as you go along your path!

Lovely performance, Max.  I get entranced watching your hands, listening to your voice.  I enjoyed that last chorus.  I wondered if you'd flip back to the picking in the outro?

As LBro said, quality of the recording is great.  I am assuming recorded as a single track with a good quality condensor?  If so, how far back was the mic and how was it positioned?

A treat as always.

It's actually recorded with my phone, but I recorded it in our staircase - a bit uncomfortable, but I like the acoustics there ;D

Wow ... amazing how good a recording one can make with just a phone.  Will agree with you ... great acoustics :)

Hey Max, that's a really nice take on the original. Guitar? Good! Vocal? Good! What's not to like? It's always a pleasure listening to your content.

If I'm not mistaken I'm seeing constant small improvements with each passing song, be that guitar or vocal technique to general overall performance. It would be pretty cool to see you perform an acoustic set live. :)

Wouldn't that be great ... Max plus so many others who post here.  The JG Festival in ... Prague ( I hear Prague is a wonderful place to visit, among many other wonderful places in Europe ... before I get flamed :) )

A very emotional performance, great stuff.
I did listen with headphones and didn't notice and major volume spikes - the voice sounds way louder than the guitar though, but not to a point where it makes it any less enjoyable.

Very nice, the finger picking certainly looks impressive, I could never get it right when I tried it. Great singing too.

Superb Max! As has been said, the guitar work and vocal is excellent. You have a way of performing which draws the listener/viewer in as you seem 100% taken over by the song, like you’re living it....every word. I liked the change to strumming at the end. Looks like you’ll be recording your album on the staircase  ;D Nice one!

Nicely done Max.
There are some golden nuggets on that Damien Rice album and you do this one justice.

It's all already been said Max, not much else to add except that you have a real talent and passion for what you're doing and it's so great to see and hear your performances

Really nice performance Max.
You're very good at picking and singing, not an easy thing to do. I watched the video yesterday for the first time directly on youtube, so did not see this post, but I liked the variation for the last part, I was a bit surprise but it's a really nice change and keep the attention of the audience, so I don't know other stuff you tried but I think this is good.

Cheers man
