I am starting to feel I know my way around a little. I even posted a request in the forum asking if anyone was interested in collaborating on this song...Telecaster came to my rescue and this is the result...It was such a fun thing to do and I want to thank Kevin (Telecaster29) for the backing...I loved working with you and hope we can do some more soon smiley
We both thank anyone who listens
oh and I took the photo of a river in the Lake District on my first trip to the UK in 2005

I don't think I know the original, so no preconceptions here. This has such a cool 60s folk/flower child feel to it -- very cool. I definitely love the combination of the light guitar with your voice, and a great mix, too. Instant favorite!

Oh, right from the beginning guitar chords I knew this would be good. Reminds me of a Neil Young song in a way. FAN-TASTIC vocals. Super production. I love the simplicity - just guitar and vocals. This is REALLY good!

I really like the flavor of this song.
I can hear a full scale rock band kicking in at some parts.
However, it would diminish the wonderful simplicity.
great work. is that a harmonica i hear in the back?
yes very nice!!!

the "harmonica" is my backing vox. plus there's a bit of sustain guitar at the end. thanks for your many kind comments, but mostly thanks to vicki for the chance to work on this and her wonderful vocal performance.

Hey Clay hope your holiday was great smiley thanks so much for listening sir
Keed, it was so cool of you to take a listen thanks so much smiley
Kevin you did such an awesome job of this...you must have a photographic memory or something cos one day you messaged me to say you were going to take a listen, the next you sent a simple guitar track for me to try to sing with and then the next day you produced the finished article...VERY impressive smiley thank you for working with me
Rusti after that I had to go look up Nico on youtube...ummm actually with long hair I might even look a bit like her...I certainly did when I was younger smiley
Jimi thank you so much for taking a listen smiley

thanks the guitar track is one acoustic guitar close-miked with a touch of reverb and chorus,recorded in one take. we recorded this quickly over the past couple of days and is about as near to live as you're gonna get 12,0000 miles apart without the aid of a satellite. i just added a little backing vocals and the electric guitar at the end. i didn't want to detract from vicki's vocal, which i think was 2nd or 3rd take to get the key right. i think the sponteneity comes across.

Nick thank you so much for taking a listen smiley I am glad Kevin jumped in to explain bout the guitars I would have had no idea...all I knew was they sounded great to me smiley
I did try it in the orig key but sadly that one low note eluded me now I have given up smoking smiley so we took it up a semi tone and this vocal was just a one taker smiley Its a song I have wanted to sing for a long time but never had the chance...thanks Kevin smiley

1 of the lines in this song 'nothing is going my way' is so ironic because it sounds like everything is going your way - I love the acoustic guitar backing & your dreamy & comforting vocals & the mix with just the perfect dash of reverb (no relation)...1 of my all-time faves of yours! - Rob B-) smiley

Never been an REM fan, so i've never heard this. But this is a good piece of songwriting--at least your rendition. Someone mentioned it earlier...excellent atmosphere. The starkness made it for me.

thanks sammy

the songwriting as such is all rem's. their version has a similar feel but more instrumentation.

for our version i thought rem's beautiful words and melody and vicki's singing didn't need much embellishment.

I could have sworn I listened and commented on this one,because there are certain artist I look for and you Vickie are one of the artist on that list.I just looked on the front page and I see the three R'S and thats why I got confused,because you,Donna and Elaine are artist that I always check out,so I thought I already heard this one,glad I came back and this my friend is an excellent track.
