Dead Man's Will (Iron & Wine cover)

May 16, 2010 10:52 PM

A cover, but unfortunately not a cover of Vogue by Madonna for the monthly challenge. This is the result of me trying to really know what I am doing with a song before I record, instead of just recording with a "I'll fix that later" approach and piling on more and more tracks. So this is one track, recorded on a USB mic in a pretty stairwell on my college's campus. I'm still stuck on the BbGCFABb tuning. I'd absolutely love any thoughts.

I like the roomy sound of the stairwell - it's very somber. This whole thing has a nice, lo-fi sound that's very pleasing to me. Buzzy strings, slow tempo; it's perfect for the overcast day outside my window. Nicely done.

Also - weird tuning. I'll have to check that out.

Really like the ambiance of the stairwell. Like Pecinpah said, nice combo of song, tone, and lo-fi-ness. Thumbs up.
