Can't You See (Black Stone Cherry) - cover

Hello people!
Some time ago, our mutual friend @TheMadman_tobyjenner performed a song by this band on an Open Mic. And then I discovered Black Stone Cherry for myself. I wonder why I didn’t know them before :crazy_face:
Thank you, Toby for expanding my horizons :handshake:
I did this cover without acoustics, keys, synths and all that. Just good old Ibanez and the bass. In the second verse, I used my ancient Weeping Demon wah pedal from Ibanez - it’s still alive! :wink:
I tried to steer the heavy dense south rock sound in the mix, but I wasn’t too happy with it :thinking:
This confirms the axiom that it is impossible to achieve such a sound at home, which is made by professionals in studios worth hundreds of thousands of dollars :laughing:
Well, okay, I did what I could…
Keep on rocking,
Leo

Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
I gonna take a freight train
Down at the station
And I don’t care where it goes
Gonna climb a mountain
The highest mountain, Lord
Gonna jump off, and nobody gonna know

[Chorus]
Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me

[Verse 2]
I’m gonna find me
A hole in the wall
I’ll crawl inside and die
‘Cause my lady
A mean ol’ woman, Lord
She never told me goodbye

[Chorus]
Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me
[Guitar Solo]

[Verse 3]
I’m gonna take a southbound
Down to Georgia, now
I ain’t never coming back
I’m gonna buy me a ticket, Lord
And go as far as I can
Till that train run out of track

[Chorus]
Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me

The best of your recordings I’ve heard so far. The balance between voice and guitars is far better and your singing benefits from a slightly less aggressive delivery than that on some of your other tracks. The production on this is great. I’d listen to it again.

This is way above my level to comment on your playing / production, I simply don’t hear those details you mentioned. Every song you posted sounds like professional level song to me. This is no exception, it is simply amazing. :blush:

Another great recording Leo, one to add to your ever growing archive of goodies. :slight_smile:

Good energy! Really enjoyed, thanks for posting!.. :guitar:

Hi Leo,
Great song and great rendition of it by you!. Vox is really nice on the harmonies and doubling. Good guitar work, like the lead runs! Just a nice toe tapper all around mate!

Keep up the good vibe and work!

Nice!

To me, you really caught the vibe. Excellent production. :smiley:

Thanks, guys for responding! :blush:
This song is really quite simple, with just a few chords. But there is drive and energy there, however, as in all Black Stone Cherry songs :sunglasses:
Keep on rocking,
Leo
