The link is not working properly, if you have the chance to fix it.

And isn't that something? I can hear you! Can almost understand the lyrics, too. Heh.

I'm pretty sure the guitar solo I love so very very much got turned up too, yay! But, the 'baby crying' track in my house turned on at the same time, so I couldn't really hear it.

By the way, are you sure these aren't the lyrics?

~Mama take this badge from me
I can't use it anymore
It's getting dark too dark to see
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door~

Heh.

i fixed the link jy,,,thanks for the heads up.

to answer your question about the dylan song, i've covered that song for about 20 years. traditionally, the chord progression is G / D / C / G / D / Am and repeats thru both the verse and chorus.

In the verse of my song, there is a sim. chord progression, namely G / D / Am in the verses.

In some versions of knockin on heaven's door, players will simplify the chords to G / D / Am repeating instead of alternating between the C and Am . Some grateful dead renditions and some reggae versions come to mind off the top of my head. In the key of the song, the root note is G and the II chord (Am) can be used as a substitute for the IV chord (C) and it creates a more "melencholy" feeling in the song. Something quite appropriate for Dylan's lamentations in this classic. doing the leadwork in Am blues also helps with that.

of course, the progressions in the chorus and bridges are qutie different. (C / G / Em / D / C9 / Am / C / D / G for the chorus) ( Em / D / Em / D / C9 / Am / C / D / G for the bridge) so the similarities end there.

but that was a damn astute observation there jy..color me impressed.

by the way, i threw a cover up there, one i sought permission to post (written). a song called john deere by fred eaglesmith. curious to what ya thought of that. that might be the only time in my life i got to play / record a 1940 something martin acoustic guitar. i think it sounds sweet.

curious to your impressions.

I almost mentioned it the first time out, but I thought, no, he'll just think I'm criticizing. Glad I nailed it though! And I listened to John Deere last night, but again, baby. So, I will try it again tonight and let you know what I think!

but again, baby


i can relate with a 1 month old, a 2 year old and 8 year old tearin this place up.

You got me beat, mine's 2 months old, but I do have a 20 month old too. Just 2, but at least you have help from the 8 year old? Hah. Kids are great, but the tearin the place up gets to me sometimes.

So you do all that parenting stuff, AND you write cool tunes? Niiice.

How do you download songs off that thing?
on Jul 03, 2007
I like the song, the voice goes from really quiet to really loud though, with no warning, which made me jump. Besides that, awesome. Very cool that you got to cover a song, legally!
