Another cover. I'm really sorry about the clipping at the end!

I'll get a decent microphone someday. And maybe even a metronome.

I like covers that take a different direction than the original - so this fits the bill nicely. well done.

Agreed. I like how much of a departure this is from the original in structure and feel. The White Stripes version is nice enough as far as that goes but it's so so straight and on-the-nose; the move toward really dynamic phrasing and more harmonic variation here is great.

Do get a nice mic at some point; the lofi feel here has some coffeehouse charm of its own (I'm choosing to pretend this is you and a friend both on stage at an open-mic knocking out a duet) but I'd love to hear this with cleaner tracks, because it's got that great build-and-fall drama to it that'd really benefit from a real quality recording.

This is great and full of surprises. I really like the tone of those distant, high plucked guitar strings that show up now and then.
