Long May You Run Neil Young cover inspired by Justin’s Lesson

Hi fellow Justineer’s,
I did this cover about 18 months ago.
I was inspired by a Justin lesson and gave it a go.
I just saw Justin’s latest lesson on From Hank to Hendricks and I thought I would also give that a go soon.
But I thought I’ll post this one first for the community to see and comment, and then we can do a comparison to From Hank to Hendricks when I post that to see if my harp playing has improved. :rofl::joy:
Anyway, I hope you enjoy my take in this Neil Young classic.
Cheers
Ron

As one of the big Neil Young lovers here, I really enjoyed that, Ron.

This was either a totally dry recording or much lighter touch with the fx. On balance I’d lean more towards this sound than some of the other recent recordings with a far more wet sound on both guitar and vocal. Of course that is taste. If totally dry here then maybe try adding a wee bit of reverb and delay to see if it sounds better, while not getting to the levels of the recent shares.

Harp playing sounding pretty good to me. As said before, I’d be a happy camper if you were the entertainment in a restaurant where I was enjoying a long lunch with the family.

I don’t know the song but I enjoyed it, very nicely done once again Ron. Loved the harmonica.

Hi David,
Thank you. The song was recorded a lot flatter than I do now.
I actually don’t like how flat it is. As you say, personal choice.
Thanks for the kind words on my harp playing. It was a bit jerky to my mind and I hope to improve with time.
Also thank you for your very encouraging words that you would love to hear me playing at a restaurant as the entertainment. Wow, high praise indeed. :smiley:
Cheers
Ron

Hi Stefan,
Justin did a lesson grade 4 back the song back in 2920 I think.
I am a Neil Young tragic so I had to give it a go.
Glad you enjoyed it.
