Hi all, my first post here of a song. Trying to see if this link will work. Hope it does!

Congrats, Carl, first AVOYP.

Link works fine and enjoyed the recording. The tone and balance is good. Your playing sounds easy going and relaxed.

Hey Carl. That was quite enjoyable. You have a really nice voice. You certainly have one good number for your “campfire songs” list. Some day I will progress to singing while playing. In my early tries, my voice keeps trying to mimic the guitar sounds rather than the song melody. Work to do…forever.

Ha! … Excellent cover, Carl … and seeing as I had my phone propped up on the table against my coffee mug while listening, it also became the theme tune to a most epic battle between myself and a bacon and egg toastie, whose egg had decided to explode in my face at the first bite! :grin:

Really good, mate … well done indeed :+1:

Well played, sung, and recorded!

How did you record it? Sound quality was very good, with nice balance between guitar, voice, and backing track.

Thanks! I recorded it with the mic on my iPhone SE 2020 using GarageBand. Backing track was from YouTube and coming from a tablet a few feet away.

Hi Carl,

I immediately recognized that song. You did an amazing job. Thanks for posting this. I haven’t heard that song since the 1990s.

That’s a nice low tech (using high tech) approach that worked very well for you.

Sometimes, simplest is best!
