    Jay, this is GGGGGGGGGGGGreat! The performance is awesome! My only real nit is your rhythm guitar is a little in your face. Was it DI by any chance?
    Instead of a Do Not Disturb Sign, I need one that says "Already Disturbed. Proceed With Caution".

    Different take on a cool song. A lot more country-ish.

    The timing's a bit off at times, as if your drummer's falling asleep in the verses, not much but enough to notice. And I agree that the rythm git is too loud.

    A few things that stand out the most to me are:

    In the chorus, the background vocals are singing "stooooone" in unicent. It could have used harmonies like in the original.

    The choruses build up (..."gonna see my smiling face"......) towards the final line, and then, for the big pay off in the chorus, there's a very shy "On the cover of the Rolling Stone" sung in falsetto. It's a bit of a let down every chorus. You needed someone to belt out "ON THE COVER OF THE ROLLING STONE!!!".

    As usual, I love your voice, and you do this one well.

    Agreed. This should be the loudest part of the song, and instead it came across as slightly timid and rather lackluster. It's the excellence that surrounds it that really makes the payoff disappointing.

    But man, other than that, it's a fantastic cover. Sounds like it could be on the radio today!
    Let's dispense with all the philosophical high-minded reasoning and well articulated thoughts and get down to some good old name-calling and insults!

    Pretty good version Jay-Same backing vocal problem already listed-Damn this song brings back memories..
    I'm hearing some intonation issues with the dobro and the rhythm guitar-they are close but slightly off.
    Your solo is nice, the original one was so out it was quite cool, they had the notes in the scale right but the timing was wacky, I guess thats was cool about it.
