2019/20 cover #45 (Creep)
« on: January 03, 2020, 06:24:04 pm »
Back with the first of the eight remaining songs. This is one of the great songs of the 90's, which I wanted to do earlier, but I have not been able to play it until recently.

Maybe I got a little carried away and I lost the timing at a few places. Also I think I need to mute the low E string better when I am playing the B and C with the A shape bar chord. The E note rings out at places, does not sound good... I tried to capture the dynamics of the song but the volume of the guitar is about the same throughout the song. Something to work more on.

Johan,

I've certainly heard this song many, many times over the years. I'm always impressed with your barre chords. I'd say you captured the essence of the original. Good strumming and vocals. Well done!

Johan, another really fine performance.  And what a work out for your barre chords, which you sailed through.

Your critique is thorough and picked up more than I would have done.

I think you strumming is excellent, you've got great rhythm and feel.  The whole performance just feels relaxed, comfortable.

I know I've said it before, but I think you can take these performances live at an Open Mic without any doubt, if that appeals to you.

I agree with you David, 100% - easily good enough for Open mic!

Another good one to have under your fingers Johan. I have added this to the thread in your honour (and will add those still to come as they do come along). :)

Your progress is nothing less than amazing, Johan, and I think this performance demonstrates that.
I admire your determination and grit and the fine pieces you are turning out.   I love the change-up at 3:25.  Another one well done!

Good one, Johan!  Did you transcribe this from the Stage 1 of the Intermediate Foundation?  I ask because that’s what I’m in the process of doing now. Good work on all the barre chords!

Thanks Pam! No I did not transcribe it myself, I used a tab. I should work more on transcribing, I have a tendency to skip ear trining and transcribing.

Would be cool if you tried this one, good bar chord practice and you would sing it so much better than me  :)

So many covers, so little time. Sounding good and having fun. That's what it's all about.

I guess you on a mission to do many cover songs. This was great, you have a nice voice and your guitar is like mine, but your barre chords are better, I enjoyed this a lot. I will practise more.  ;D

Thanks Daffodils! Just keep working on the barres and they will get better. Just takes time and a lot of effort.

Mission complete now, my goal was 52 covers in a year. Almot made it, but needed from jan 2019- march 2020.
