April/May Music Challenge: MetaMeta

April 10, 2014 6:37 AM

With extremely humble apologies for the lateness, please accept this offering of the challenge for April/May, as suggested by dagosto.

Musical friends, I beg forgiveness for the lateness of this challenge. The reason is honourable - musical activities IRL have been leeching away my time of late and sorting out the new challenge has been on my to-do list for over a month!

Anyway dagosto has given me the kicking I needed in the form of a great suggestion for this challenge: cover a song from your MeFiMu favourites list or one of your playlists.

Remember: a good cover does not have to be about improving on the original, but can be about presenting it in a different way. So you don't need to worry about offending the original creator of the piece, not doing them justice, or not being able to top their delivery. The point is simply to do it your way.

When posting your entry, please tag "MeFiMusicChallenge" and "MetaMeta". And it would be a nice touch to drop the original creator a mefimail to let them know they have a tribute :)

I'm working on a cover of this one:

I can count the amount of covers I've attempted on one hand so it's going to be a bit of hit and miss. I've not the ear for picking up chords and notes. But hopefully I'll pick this one up in time to submit~!

Just in case anyone would want to cover one of my songs, message me and I'll tell you the chords if I can remember them!

There are so many songs posted by members here that could be fun covering, but unfortunately I won't have the time. Good luck to all who participate, hoping some cool entries come in.

Just a quick note to flag up Cicadaverse's fantastic cover of our song 'Pick me up'. Might even change the way we play it. Thank you!

I am just stopping in to say that if one of you covered I Am Truly Fully Licensed Hairstylist, I could die happy.

I'm very happy I finally took the time to listen to all of the contributions. They all have such a great feeling. Maybe someday I can get over all of the pitfalls greenish mentions in the challenge and tribute a mefimuso in a similarly awesome spirit.

Thanks greenish :)
