This is a short little Bruce Springsteen song called wreck on the highway. This is a one take from my porch this morning. Thanks for listening.
Some solid strumming there Eddie, nice version I enjoyed listening to this. Great song from an album not heard for too long. Thanks for sharing.
Very enjoyable start to my Saturday morning. Smooth, melodic, great vocal. All sat together perfectly.
All the best.
That was a really cool song. Dont think i can recall that one, but i liked it a lot… nice sound from youre guitar, witch is pretty cool by the way!
And a great voice to top it of with… it was a great performance that i really enjoyed watching and listening too.
Looking forward to the next
Thanks Mal. I appreciate you checking this one out .
Cheers Shane. I really appreciate your feedback and Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.
Thanks Trond . It’s one of Bruce’s lesser known songs I guess but it came up on my YouTube feed a few months ago and I really liked it so decided to learn it. It was pretty easy to learn to be honest. Low Hanging fruit and all that .
The guitar is an Eastman . I bought it a few months ago and loved it from the minute I picked it up.
Thanks again for the listen and feedback!
So good Eddie. Delivered like a master. If that was busking I would have chucked some money in your case and stayed around for the next one.
I will forever be jealous at how easy you make a great singing & playing performance look.
You are too kind JK. I don’t think I am a great singer but certain songs seem to suit me while most don’t. There are a tonne of songs I can play pretty well on guitar but can’t sing them for the life of me. I sucked pretty bad at singing a couple of years back but just kept at it and at it and just like guitar it improved the more I did it.
Cheers again for the listen mate!
Thoroughly enjoyed that Eddie. I enjoy Springsteen and you do a good job conveying the vibe and feel. Have to call out the ever so relaxed fluent strumming.
As for your singing, I think it may be better than you think (not unusual) and you have a knack of choosing songs that suit your vocal style. A lot of people may say Springsteen himself (and other legends) are not great singers from a certain perspective.
So just keep the songs coming, more one take recordings from the porch sounds good to me.
This singing is really well done, I wouldn’t change anything about it…and with the guitar playing makes it together
Love those veranda settings, now next time I’d like to see the view you’re looking at
Hats off Eddie, I loved it. Nicely done and great backdrop sitting on the porch knocking out a tune what could be better.
Great job Eddie excellent job bro
Well played and sung Eddie. I’ve never been a huge Springsteen fan but I enjoyed your version of that lesser known one. Yes, finding the songs that suit ones voice is the thing to do.
Great stuff, well done.
The sweet sound of your strumming is always a treat to my ears Eddie, and also your singing is very enjoyable…thank you for sharing it…
Thank you David for your kind and supportive comments. I guess it takes time to get used to the sound of one’s own voice and what works and more importantly what doesn’t.
I did read Springsteens autobiography a couple of years back and he said in the book that he didn’t think he was a very good singer but he made the most of what he had. That’s the trick i reckon.
Thanks so much Rogier and I always appreciate your comments and support.
Not much of a view out there to be honest, just our back garden which my son has turned into a soccer pitch and a mountain of leaves that need to be raked. . That’s my Saturday sorted then .
Doesn’t get much better than that Craig . Thanks for the listen and I am glad you enjoyed it.
Cheers Jeff and thanks for taking the time to check it out .
Thanks so much Gordon. Maybe I subconsciously choose lesser known songs so nobody will know if I butchered them or not . Thanks for checking it out!
