yeah, but with cello instead. and lush deep female frontvox.

scary, yes?

chillmost was local back in the day.

matt fish on cello. emma claire on vocals. yt on guit, percussion, etc's.

maybe kinda like what 'it's a beautiful day' would sound like if they were around today.

anybody got any good 'ruby' links? they were recommended.

I love this song so much. It have a soft spot for it in that it was one of the first songs we learned in one of the first bands I ever played in. This is such a cool interpretation! Big ups

Absolutely stunningly awesomely beautiful. The vocals are unbelievable (the tremolo kills me), but I'm also into the soft guitar. Interesting playing style. And the cello is played not just as padding but as an active part, which is cool.

Just gorgeous. One of my favourite songs combined with my favourite instrument - thanks for this.

Sorry...I really did love this--so much so, in fact, that I had to destroy it.

This is another song that can be crafted into something beautiful in the right hands. Well done!

thanks mefites, you are all too kind.

>>Interesting playing style
this totally cracked me up, probably not your intent, kinda like i use chopsticks or my bare toes or something.
