Default Cover Your Song Thread! - The Competition!

Ok, for all ya guitarists and singers...here's a cover your song thread. You pick a song you like, possibly some we all know, and cover it and record and post it here!

Then when we get enough songs, we can open a poll and start a competition. No real rules here, you can be creative, you can alter the song a bit if you want, or parody it, but we gotta know the song. You can use any instrument you want also, beside the guitar...

Let it roll. I'm recording smth and posting soon.

Oh and also no mixing up, you gotta sing it and play it for real, as if we're all sitting around in a circle and playing for each other. That's about the only rule I can really think that it's important.

The Covers:

Adrenalinne

Prezadent

Damn, my voice is dead now! I've recorded like 10 times, out of which 5 times the stupid Sound Forge DIDN'T record. And the last time sounds bad cause my throat sores like shit now.I'll re-record it tomorrow and post. But I've got it, and I want to hear you guys as well.

The only instrument I play is the trombone. Kind of hard to sing and play at the same time.

But since I think I sing a bit better than Prince Chan, I might try

Hey, you got your nose stuffed, but my throat is sore and that's worse. Can't do much anything today, got studying+a session at my psychologist+going to school for my diploma+i have a date...no time today.

Hopefully tomorrow my throat gets better so I can record this well. I've got it all worked out, just gotta sing it right. Maybe the kissing tonight will cure my voice.

This was happening to me too a few years ago, but as long as I was practising, I don't experience that anymore

I'm still wondering what song should I choose, hehe
But should I only use my guitar, or can I program drums and synths on PC?

Only guitar use. No mixing. I want this to be like we're playing live, as I said, in a circle.

Ok, my voice is still a bit dead, and I sang quite a few parts "off-tone", but my pal was around, so I took the chance to have two guitars instead of one.

My Entry for the Competition!

Oh and watch out for the ending!

Now I wanna hear you guys!

Wow, I like your cover Prezadent!!

Well, I will still try to cover up Stormwitch's RATS IN THE ATTIC song (no matter how good yor voices are ) ;
I'm sure, most of you don't know what that is, so I'll upload you a free version (accoustic) of this song by true composers (to get original version you'll have to buy the awesome album ) and my cover version as well
