Sat down yesterday with my new uke, at a beach on the west cost of the Big Island, to revisit my Cohen/Elvis parody from several years ago.
Merry Cohenmas! The creation date on the lyrics file is 2004, which means I've had at least six better holiday song ideas than this. At least the Bengals still aren't very good.
Yet another cover of the Cohen standard, but at least I've got an excuse this time. [more inside]
I basically put the words to Hallelujah to an acoustic chill rock guitar thing. and this happened. [more inside]
A largely pointless endeavor, a rendition of Hallelujah with quick fingerpicking and banjos (what's new?).
Godawful Danzig impression? Check. Complete lack of shame? Check. [more inside]
Cohen, prison style. [more inside]
Here's my version of the esteemed Mr. Cohen's paean to the religion of love. I dropped the rhythm and chord changes, and made a new melody. The very minimal accompaniment consists of three tracks from my trusty old JUNO 60 analog synth. That's it! Video version (photos by yours truly) at Vimeo and YouTube.
