wow, that was just beautiful!
You played and sung so well, bravo! You made it look so easy and effortless, but I’m sure it wasn’t that easy. Your guitar sounds amazing. Also, your voice just fits in perfectly. Never heard that song before, but you made me like it instantly! Will check it out for sure.
Thanks for sharing! That was a most enjoyable listen.
No this is a Logitech separate webcam, (C922 model number) but to be fair most built in webcams these days aren’t bad.
Thanks so much Lisa
Easy and effortless (it may look it but did not feel it!!) is only a result of practice so we can all do it
Love me some Crowes, love this song.
Great job Mark, glad you went for the open E version.
I dabbled with playing this after @Mari63 asked me to do a vocal colab, with her playing. Can’t remember if this was here or the old forum but it was a challenge to learn but for some reason I never boxed it off end to end. But know this is a tricky beast to tame. Grand job sir !
Wow just looked back and it was December 21 !!! Boy time flies and so much old content lost.
Cheers Toby, funny you mention your looks at it before, there was a thread came up when I was typing the post for suggested topics but I didn’t look!
I’m also a big Crowes fan, having got this to a reasonable place I’m tempted to go after some more of their stuff now, especially from Southern Harmony etc.
That was great Mark. Super picking, strumming and vocal. Black Crowes are not a band I’m familiar with but after listening to your song I looked them up on Spotify. Your version is really good, well done.
Great job! I’ve always loved that song.
Sounding good Mark! It’s a great tune, and a great arrangement for the guitar. I prefer Open D tuning, capoed on 2 if you want to play with the original. I don’t like tuning strings up from standard pitch. And now that I don’t have a bunch of extra guitars lying around (to leave one in Open D) I haven’t played it in quite awhile. Will have to check it out again!
Thanks Mari and interesting comments on the tuning, I’ll look at open d at some point
Nice seeing you again Mark! And wow!! That was a great performance.
Its quite clear that you have been playing and practised a lot since i last watch youre avoyp…
Really really well done!! Im impressed!
And such a great somg choise, forgotten all about the black crows
Can’t remember what we did it in but I recall moving the capo around, as my vocals were pretty restricted back then. And I’m sure I went for Open D, capo on 2nd when I started to learn it. Must revisit !
Check out the album “Shake Your Money Maker”. And as Mark mentioned above somewhere “The Southern Harmony And Musical Collection”. Some solid Blues Rock for sure.
Hey Mark. That really sounded great. Impressive picking and strumming; gliding smoothly up and down the fretboard; pleasing vocals.
Your guitar sounds rich. I’m curious about it - I read some of your learning log, but if you mentioned it, I missed it. I saw somewhere you’ve had it about a year I think. Care to share what it is?
Anyway, great job!
Hi Pamela, thank you!
The guitar is a Faith Venus Cut - Blood Moon edition, they’re from then UK. I love it dearly and it wasn’t what I was going to buy when I went to get an acoustic!
Bit more of a backstory to it in this thread if you’re interested.
No actually nobody’s mentioned the harmonics and I’m now super pleased I put on my frustrated face because otherwise you would not have shared this nugget :
I had literally done no research on how to play the harmonic other than watch the bands performance of this on the Howard Stern show and trying to copy Rich Robinson’s movements with his fretting hand. This now totally explains why I found it so hit and miss (hence my head shakes in the video!). I just assumed you fretted in the usual spot and it was just about touch and feel on lifting your finger. To be fair to myself (!) prior to recording they were sounding good with my bad technique, but not consistent. What you’ve given me above I’ve just tried and holy moly it only works like a champ and another winning tip from the community, have a special “You’ve Helped Notter Today” badge
Legend mate, thank you!
Hi Mark! That was very beautiful, all the hard work has definetely paid off. Very smooth playing and …the singing is just superb! I enjoyed it very much even if I didn’t know the song Bravo!
Beautifully played and sung Mark! I’m glad to see you back around here. You clearly have put a lot of work in on that song and it shows!
I really enjoyed this. More please!
Wow Mark, I hadn’t heard this song before but this was such a great cover!
The strumming variations, the vocals, and the little picking sections all blended in nicely… it’s up there with your best performances. Good to see you back.
