Hurt Cover My Way
« on: October 14, 2021, 02:30:27 am »
Hey guys figured i would do this again. Its a little different than my last cover of it. Last time i was way up on the fretboard with my capo. This time its lower I think its either below or at eflat, thus im singing lower. Wish i had the feeling of it like cash though. When i first heard this song and payed attention to it it just brought me so many tears because its just such a sad/beautiful/true song that im sure many of us can relate to. Sorry for the poor editing lol, my webcam is wierd, it wont go into fullscreen while im recording and thus the black bars... If i do make the webcam fullscreen its like zoomed in or something, dunno whats going on with it. I use OBS to record. Anyways here it is, hopefully you guys like the solos! :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7_sbV7co2Q

Hi,
Sounds pretty good to me. Though I would like to see a bit more emotion from you as you sing. I liked your intro solo and overall effort! All good stuff.... Ah more solo work as I listen. Good stuff... Nice job in making it yours and your play sounds good.

Keep on rock'n,

Great stuff Bytron. Some nice fingerstyle there as well.

You're on a roll, Bytron, aintcha?
A good example of that 'learns songs' mantra  :)

This is a timeless classic and works for beginners as well as pros.
I really enjoyed the intro and the guitar solo inserts, as well as the percussion.
The chorus didn't work for me as well as I was hoping. The simple down-strums and singing on the beat left me wanting more variation (or maybe emotion, as our little brother said).
Good stuff though.
Rack 'em up!

I enjoyed that, Bytron. I really liked the lead work, added a lot to the song.  I would suggest maybe changing up the strumming in the chorus to have more contrast between verse and chorus, perhaps muted pumping 8s or maybe more picking in the verse and strumming in the chorus. Well done.

aaWow thanks guys!!! :D I agree that i could have put more emotion into my singing but its really hard for me to do when i sing really low like that, though maybe it will come with more practice for sure!!! Thanks guys.

One of your best Bytron. Beautiful tones and a compelling groove.

Like the lead aspects you added and you have made the vocal line a little more unique. Sounding good. Like others have said, I would have liked the chorus to have been pumped up with 1/8s, as it can create a nice crescendo especially towards the end of the song and therefore increase the emotion. But hey I've yet to sing and play this, so what do I know.
Anyway good job as always.

Cheers

Wow thanks Batwoman and Toby, Glad yall enjoyed it!!! Yes! I love the lead work in this one for sure. Maybe ill have to try that one day in the chorus, 1/8s strum, may be interesting.

I enjoyed your version Bytron. I liked the lead play you put in, it gave the song a little extra. Well done. Your vocal was good too. No one can sing as low as JC. Well, maybe Tosh!
