    Chris Harris cover

    Alright,

    First off, Chris, thanks for letting me do the cover.......great song.......that's the thing I like about covers....when you record them, you know you're recording a good song.....when you record your own, you have to assume and hope that the song you are recording is good.........

    The song is Chris' "Every Chance I Get"

    Track explaination-
    1. Piano is the main instrument.......I'm just trying to teach myself to play and have never recorded one before...so be leniant here

    2. If it sounds like tape hiss at the beggining it's because it is tape hiss.....my piano is in another room, so I used my mixer into a tape deck....then i dumped that track into cakewalk.....so i guess it has an analog foundation, but everything else is digital....also, I only had access to one mic to record everything....so no stereo on the piano........

    That's it............enjoy..........thanks Chris......

    "Every Chance I get"

    Hey Powder,
    Nice job man. This was a good choice for a cover. This IS A GREAT song. Its one of those songs that sounds like it wrote itself i 15 minutes. Very natural changes. Just plain excellent.
    One of my favorites here.
    Doing it w/ piano was a good choice too. .....Nice job man.....

    .....and Chris, GREAT SONG!!!!

    Good performance, good song, good sound.

    The mix: maybe bring the vocal down a bit, since it's got all that reverb on it, it sounds a bit out of proportion to the guitar and piano. If the vocal was drier, you could get away with I bet.

    What a nice song. He *do* write a good song, don't he?

    Brave tune. I like wide open stuff like this and your singing didn't let it down. Good job.

    Good song Chris
