Recorded these two a little while back and thought I'd share...

Oh My Sweet Carolina (Ryan Adams)
I've Just Seen a Face (Beatles)

And because I'm lazy, I'm going to post this here, too. This is one of my songs, "No Name Town," that I recorded with my friend, Mark, in the late summer. I know the mix isn't the greatest, so I'll include the lyrics too.

No Name Town

I've been living in a no name town
The anchors in my mind keeping holding me down
I'd swear that I'm gonna make my way out
If it weren't for my heart so filled with doubt
If it weren't for my heart so filled with doubt

I've been walking up and down this street
The cracks in the road are friends to me
I'd walk the miles posted on that sign
If it weren't for your heart I would leave behind
If it weren't for your heart I would leave behind

I've been kissing you at night, in my dreams
But the colour of your eyes just ain't what it seems
I'd dream forever, darling, if I could
If it weren't for my heart not beating as it should
If it weren't for my heart not beating as it should

I've been in love with you for so long
Line after line and song after song
I'd swear someday, I'd make you see
If it weren't for your heart, you'd be in love with me
If it weren't for your heart, you'd be in love with me

I'm listening to Oh, My Sweet Carolina --your voice is golden
Very, very nice.
Love.

Thanks, Turk - I'm glad you liked it.

The arrangement I used for that song is actually stolen from Jeffrey Foucault's cover of the song, which I think gives it a very soft feel, in the absence of a certain Emmylou Harris.

LOVE "No Name Town" as well. Is that you on mandolin? Great lyrics. And your guitar on the Beatle's tune is sweet.
Thanks for posting these. It's always nice when people dust off this thread.

Thanks Turk - I'm glad you like the song. It's one of my few upbeat songs. Alas, while the mandolin itself is mine, that's Mark playing it. I have little to no aptitude for the thing.

Hey, how did I miss this? Great to hear you Adam, you're really sounding great!I especially like your own song and kudos to your friend Mark for his mandolin work. My only critique on that song is the tempo is a little erratic....lol. Thanks so much for sharing!

This thread hasn't had much love lately...

Here's a cover of what I think may be my favourite song on the new Indigo Girls album...

"Ghost of the Gang" (Amy Ray)

It's a bit difficult to sing, so it's not my best, but I think it mostly worked out

This poor thread...

I was up late last night and decided to learn Greg Brown's "Brand New '64 Dodge," which was surprisingly easy. I was liking the way it sounded, so I decided to try my hand at recording it. Here's the result...
