Re: It's no Roy Orbison new [re: Vanessa_Y]  

Vanessa, you're so sweet you make me look like Walter Mathau circa Grumpy Old Men.

Thanks you guys!

Strawie, do you have anything constructive to add? What can I do to improve?

I'm talking to you, fuck face.

I know you won't come back to this thread unless I reply to you personally.

Fat chicks and black folk both sing good new [re: JarethsGirl]  

Alright, so crappy quality but I'd totally make babies with your voice. Like, in a second.

If you ever decide to be a thoroughly fucked up borderline-anorexic Asian or South American chick with serious daddy issues I think we could really have a future together. A totally healthy one.

Someone's becoming a chubby chaser in his old age new [re: Monkeyboy]  

I think I could shoot for the South American basket case if you could fashion yourself into a wispy, ambiguously straight Irish poet with one black eye and a dead stare.

Anyway, thank you Monkeyboy. That was actually very nice, especially because Iím super self-conscious about the olí chops.

P.S. I hope by ďmake babies with your voiceĒ you didnít mean you want to spill your Monkeyseed over my vocal chords.

Cut your finger nails as short as possible, form hard skin on your finger tips and simply keep practicing.

And try putting a capo on the 3rd fret with certain numbers - it's good exercise for the voice.

Wanna know how I wipe my ass? new [re: Strawman]  

Cut my nails, surely not! I'm trying to break the Guinnes World Record.

Watch your ass, Lee Redmond.. you old sorceress.

Very well done! new [re: JarethsGirl]  

Gram Parsons fan that I am, I've listened to Love Hurts probably a thousand times (not sure I've ever heard the Roy Orbison version, and I have conveniently forgotten Nazareth's), but your take on it -- especially the unusual phrasing and flexibility with the melody -- really gave it a whole new dimension, which to me, is what makes covers worthwhile. (and I liked the primitive guitaring!)

So, congratulations, JG. Yours is a rendition that Beau Bryant (the song's author) would really love.

Re: Very well done! new [re: power2charm]  

Gee, thanks p2c! The different phrasing was born more out of necessity rather than ingenuity because of my poor playing skills, but I'm glad I didn't murdalize it too much.

I've just listened to the Gram Parsons version and I love it. I wanted to hear more after hearing "A Song for You" in the Grand Theft Parsons soundtrack, but I was just starting to get into Townes Van Zandt at the time and got a little obsessed.. Now I'm fixin' for some more of that emo country and haunting folk, so any suggestion on where to start with Parsons?
