Not really my thing Arjun, but your performance was really impressive. 

Both your playing and singing at a level I am working towards (ok not the singing as I am nowhere near and not working in a focussed way to improve my singing and my guitar playing still very beginner-ish by comparison)

How do you add the harmony vocals in.

Also like your videos.

Thank you for the feedback mate!!

The recordings lately are all just done live... guitar is plugged into the audio interface as is the Rode NT2A mic.

Once the main track is recorded, I then overdub the harmonies on top :)

Thanks Arjun ... I see I'd left the word out on what your performance really was ... it was impressive, polished.  Do you perform live?

Thank you so much for the support and feedback!
Yes I do, however I am now working on writing and release a single in 2019, and then working on an EP before I go back to performing live!
I will keep doing covers until then :)

Wonderful job, very polished version - nothing that I could add feedback-wise :)

Dare I say personally I would have preferred to have just listened to you and the guitar and done away with the overdubs. That's certainly not meant as a criticism, rather I just felt captivated by the on screen performance and the extra elements weren't needed for me. :)

I know Ed Sheeran is a big deal but I really don't know much about his music. The exception being this song which I've heard a lot. I'd say you did a masterful job. Vocals are great for this song and playing is exceptional. Well done!

Great vocals, love the performance!
Is the low E string out of tune?

Thank you and fair enough, everyone has their preferences!
I tried to keep it nice and simple but will take that feedback on board for the next slow acoustic cover :)

God I hope not, now that you mention it, sounds mildly flat aarrghhh   :o

AJ

So, good to see you back here man. Had to jink around to get the Youtube link but this was really clean and pure. Hey that's you're normal signature is it not. Vocals and tone were sweet and on point. Nicely done, lets have some more.

Cheers

AJ, Listened to all your posts.  While it's not really the type of music I listen to, your playing and singing is spot on and sounds really good.
