…as soon as I sell off my Inspire 1394 and buy a Focusrite Saffire 6. Didn’t get an audio card so I don’t have a Firewire input on my PC. I still have a sore throat anyway so it’s fine. No rush.
Of course, there’s only so much I can do with an electric guitar and a mic. I could pick up on triggering drums electronically (hello Battery 3) but it’s really cumbersome, especially since I don’t have a MIDI controller. Ah well.
Rather than being a list of the songs I absolutely want to cover, these are the ones that I’ve played around with in the past and can fit passably into my horrendous vocal range.
- Juke Kartel – Throw It Away
- Seether – Driven Under
- Disagree – Crumbs
- Silversun Pickups – Growing Old is Getting Old
- Leonard Cohen- Hallelujah
- Ben Harper – Another Lonely Day
- Sonata Arctica – Shy
- Placebo – Meds
- Nirvana – Where Did You Sleep Last Night
- No Doubt – Running
- Damien Rice – Amie
- Tegan & Sara – My Number
- Jimmy Eat World – The Middle
- Keane – Somewhere Only We Know
- Elliott Smith – Between the Bars
- Toxic Airborne Event – Sometime Around Midnight
- Dead By Sunrise – Let Down
- The Cure – Love Song
And here are a couple of the ones that I really want to do but probably won’t for numerous reasons (requires too high a key to sound good, needs more instruments than I have etc.)
- Alicia Keys – Love is My Disease
Goo Goo Dolls – IrisModjo – LadyWhitetown – Your WomanPearl Jam – BlackGuns N Roses – This I Love
