Hurray, it’s finally out! This track has been done since May, and the only reason it took so long to get done is the sheer amount of procrastination that went into this haha. Like I said, actual song was done 2 months ago, got in my recording video funk, then got off my butt the middle of June and recorded video. The person who usually does my video was busy, but another friend of mine graciously offered to do the video on this one for me, and wow did they go above and beyond! My Mom described how the video came out and it’s so perfect. I didn’t tell him what to do but it’s the type of video I always want for these sorts of covers, just an amazing job!
Not only is the video so well done, but this cover is another big step for me. It’s the first time I used my percussion instruments in something! I whipped out my tambourine, djembe drum and claves and went to town with them XD was lots of fun, and I think they really added to the arrangement. This is the first folk style cover I did also, and I felt so good doing it. At first, I was afraid it was so much different than the original people wouldn’t like it, but it’s been getting a good response already, and like I’ve said before, I’m definitely getting my style down with this cover. If I do high energy stuff, this would pretty much be it, I think. Still need to keep on getting better of course, but I know I’m on the right track with this and it’s super exciting feeling. Can’t wait to do another cover in this style, and get better at it! I guess I just have to realize: Folk and Celtic are pretty much my genres XD I’d throw in acoustic atmospheric stuff too if I knew a proper name for it, we’ll just call it acoustic for now haha. Indi? Who knows. Either way, those are my top 3 genres, for sure~
I’ve said everything I can about this cover and video I think, so hope you enjoy it!
