Wow that was good, I'll give you 2 thumbs up for that!

Tell you all the truth - I like the covers of some of these tunes coming out of all of you more than the originals (never was a Springsteen fan, but really liked that). T-Sal, there's something Tom Petty-ish in your playing... you got a sound, a good sound. Nice stuff. (PS - nice camera angle, good to see there's a person connected to those arms :) and envy invoking bird in the background you got there ; )

Thank ye gents - much appreciated! PS I love TP....

We actually played this in a bar Friday night for the first time. My buddy did harp solos as well. I think it was our best song by far. Crowd loved it.

We started out a bass player, cajon, and Mike and I. By the end of the night we had six folks on stage with us singing and jamming. At midnight one older gent (maybe 70ish) walked up and asked if he could sing a song, and if we knew Joe Cocker's Feelin Alright. Magic ensued. I wish I had a video. The gent was fantastic.... He was a musical dynamo that came out of nowhere. The best kind of surprise.

Super cover version. Nebraska is one of my all time favorite albums. A little too bleak for most, but just my cup of tea.

Hey Sal, that other guy singing along with you has a pretty good voice too [thumbup]

Not a Springsteen fan, but liked your take on this tune, Sal.

Very, very good, Sal. I liked your more upbeat interpretation, and it really suited your voice well, too.

Enjoyed that, Sal. My kind of tune. And of course it had to be black and white, nice touch there.

Ah the fear when someone comes up and says they can do a song
One in 30 can do it. The rest are just a pain in the arse , I hate to be rude to anyone but have had to many nights out ruined by some idiot who half knows a song

Another fine rendition from your tent.
The CW delivers with excellency, , , but isn't quite in tune*, is it. .
The vocal are - they show immaculate pitch and I sure don't hope you use so called auto-tuner.
Not that it sounds like it - important to underline. If this is straight onto tape, you carry a golden gift, , , even under the shower.



*talkin' B-string -
btw. worth noticing you don't give us much high E-string in this tune.
You just can't keep coincidences down. .

Thanks again...
Em.. no trinkets. Actually pitch on the harmony is flat towards the end. Human. :)
My hearing must be shot... have to tune more accurately. Funny... in a thread on AGF I mentioned that I was frustrated with my hearing. I have several guitars with pickups, with no issues, but my head is turned inside and out and Iím having trouble assessing whatís good plugged in tone at the moment...
