Matthew Good Musical Tribute

Recommended Posts

The problem with these types of things is that most of the participants try to make things sound as close to the original as they can.

 

In my opinion, if you're going to cover something, even if it's for a tribute album, you have to put your own spin on it. Change the instrumentation, the tempo, the overall mood, anything to make it your own.

 

Unless of course you're a cover band... then your job is likely to be as close to the original artist as possible.

I completely agree. That's why I like changing the songs I cover a bit, not making them sound completely like they are. Just sing them in my own way.

 

Btw, I decided I'm going to do Strange Days so So Long Mrs. Smith is up for grabs.

 

Glad to see so many people are interested ;)

This can and should work if one person can step up and what not. I am totally game for doing one or whatever.

 

I'll look through some different options and make a list of what i'd like to do.

I CANT DO IT BY MYSELF SO I NEED SOMEONE WHO PLAYS GUITAR OR PIANO OR SOMETHING!

What song do you want to do, I'll see what I can do if acoustic's alright for you ;)

Right now, I'm keyboard-less (the instrument. I've got myself a dandy computer-type keyboard)

 

But I've been thinking about picking one up, just to goof around on. Not sure how helpful this'll be, but if I do, then I'll certainly be learning whatever I can of Matt's on piano.

that's a wicked idea, i was gonna mention this awhile back but didn't for some stupid reason. One request: no one touch Rabbits or fine art. I am already in the process of recording Giant, so i may contribute that, i've been working on an acoustic version of that for awhile, me and Noise Pollution (if he'd get his act together). Other than that maybe Tuffle Pigs or Rat, but i'm hesistant to touch those two either, too personal and amazingly good.

God another cover.........I'll get my act together when you record some decent original materiel. Anyways if I were to do one tune it would be the Inescapable Us!

inescapable us? you couldn't play that staright through without fucking up, you can't play anythign straight through without fucking up, i always have to carry the song, you got no rythym dave-o, no style.

I totally respect the whole 'please don't do this song' thing BUT I really want to do fine art. I transpose it all wierd and play it all open chords and stuff. It doesn't sound very much like the original. So I promice I won't butcher it.

 

I call Fine art or You are Here.

 

I won't do fine art if lots of people are opposed.

 

 

PS Out of Style would be sick!!!!

I think any song would be cool, I really would like to see people's renditions of fine art and other stuff that may be considered personal because they would bring a whole new feel to it...which is kinda the point in this sort of thing.

no worries man, don't let me stop you, if the song means a lot to you , by all means do it,

 

if anyone can play piano decently and wants to do a piano version of a song with me let me know, i f you play it in midi i can run it through a grand paino synth and it would sound pretty good, or whatever

 

a piano version of tripoli would be good, most mg would sound good on piano frankly

 

EDIT: spelling

Do you need anybody to play cowbell?!?

 

I got a fever,and the only prescription... is MORE COWBELL!

 

This sounds like an awesome idea, but count me out... i have no musical skills.

I feel like a 'back seat driver' so to speak... but whenever the idea to do covers comes up everyone always pounces on the obvious choices. Why not mess with the hidden gems that everyone raves about in every other thread?

 

Just a thought.

I think I've got a decent enough acoustic version of My Out Of Style Is Coming Back down on my guitar that sounds different enough from the original. I'll record it tomorrow and have it up. I'd do it tonight but I've got a mid-term in the morning and I've procrastinated on studying for it enough.

Okay people, this is great. Everyone who has their song recorded, please PM me. We'll figure a way to transfer it, we'll organize the whole album, maybe with some cover art and stuff like that and then I'll upload it all together somewhere everyone can download it.
