2019 Cover #23 (Sverige)
« on: June 18, 2019, 10:35:13 pm »
This weeks cover is by Swedish band Kent (same band as cover #14). "Sverige" means Sweden and the song is some kind of melancholic look at Sweden. Not sure if they love or hate Sweden, I think its a bit of both. But a beautiful song, some people actually has suggested that "Sverige" should replace "Du gamla, du fria" as the national anthem of Sweden, but that has not happened yet.. The original is played slower but works good as a more mid-tempo song also. Very basic chords in this version, but I'm not 100% happy with the playing anyway, not as smooth as I would like. I think the singing went pretty well in this one though.

Well, I think it sounded pretty good Johan. I think you are hitting a pretty consistent level of performance over the last few covers. Enjoying watching and listening. And great effort to be sustaining the regular recording.

Johan,

I agree with everything David said. And I agree with you too. This is a really pretty song. Such a beautiful melody. Your strumming really brings out the beauty in this one. Really, really nice! In fact, although I don't understand a lick of Swedish, out of your recent covers, this is one of my favourites.

The singing did go well. That was very good. You sound more confident than when you sing in English.

Thanks David, hilts and jono! Glad to hear I am getting more consistent. Next up is a more well known song, I would say the #1 most played guitar cover by troubadours all over the world.

Johan,
Very nicely done and I enjoyed this one. Your timing, singing and play all seem very good.

I have no idea how you can do a cover a week. I admire guys like you and Oldhead49 that can crank out a cover, seemingly at will. Very nice, and shows good versatility!

So in the end I think we all have something to strive for and that is the great thing about guitar and music!

Cheers and rock on!

Thanks LBro for listening, glad you liked it. Most of the songs I cover during 2019, I already know more or less. Its just a matter of practice them up to a reasonable level which I usually can do within a week.
