Zach returns! This is an excellent cover. You did a great job picking out the parts from the original, and your vocals are clean as can be. I'm looking forward to more of this!

I'm pretty harsh when listening to covers, but your right in the ballpark fella!
keep this stuff up, you may get a call from one of the groups!

Wow! You nailed it man, down to the handclaps. Mind you, I've yet to hear a cover by you that hasn't nailed it. Grin

As for those 14 months----whatever it takes, Zach. It's always well worth the wait. :=)

Those handclaps were a real challenge, John, but I'm glad they were up to snuff. Grin

Thanks a lot, both of you.

Holy wow. Spot on- almost too much so! My only comment would be to add some personal flair too! You killed it, so add some pazazz to the song too ... if that makes sense

Thanks a lot, Mike. I really felt that this was one of my best recordings yet when I was working on it, and I'm glad to see that people seem to be picking up on that! And I appreciate the advice.

To give a little insight into why my covers are the way they are: it can sometimes be really difficult for me to separate songs I love from their arrangements. So if I listen to a cover (recorded by myself or someone else) with a couple of little things changed, all I can think when I listen to that cover is how I wish those things were closer to the original. The one exception is when a cover is completely and totally different, harmonically or rhythmically or both. I won't necessarily enjoy covers of that type (just like I won't necessarily like every new song I hear), but at least I can appreciate it as a separate, yet familiar, entity.

So in short, when covering a song I pretty much always try to go for either something really similar to the original, or something diametrically opposed, with only a little bit of room in between. Examples of the latter are pretty few at this point (I want to make more!), but my "All My Loving" piano cover is definitely one.

I feel ya-- that was totally me with Funky Pretty... I felt the arrangement was perfect but it needed some better mixing, so I took a swing.

Great job with this, seriously!

This is so close i'd have thought you sampled some of the original. Phenomenal job.
