    Rolling Stones' "Monkey Man" Cover....

    Yes, another cover.

    I just finished my latest CD, which will be out soon.

    So, in the mean time, I'm having some fun with a couple of covers. I've always loved this tune, so I decided to do it for the fun of it.

    Let me know what you think. Thanx!

    MONKEY MAN (Rolling Stones cover)

    Nice!

    My only nit would be that I'd like a bit more kick and a bit less snare, but that's only if I'm being really picky.

    They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. -B.F.

    I really like the in-your-face sound. I agree with NL5, taking down the snare just a touch will do it. Awesome vocals! Great work!

    Hey guys, Thanx alot for the advice. I'm re-mixing it now. I thought the snare might be a little loud, I was going for that Charlie watts in your face snare, but it's probably not sounding balanced. I'll also bring up the kick. Thanx for the ears.

    The vocals are really extraordinarily well done here. You sound so much more like Mick than I expected. I mean, I know you can sing, but the inflections and stuff are uncanny.

    The whole thing comes across as maybe a little more deliberate and tightly controlled than the original, but it still has enough looseness and groove going on...the panning seems pretty extreme, but it may actually emulate the original and I wouldn't necessarily get that.

    Drums sound great to me, but I would certainly defer to others about any possible kick/snare issues. Very well put together rami!

    While I'm not the biggest Stone's fan and have never heard the original, this sounds extraordinarily well! Your vocals are freakin' awesome as usual. I tend to agree with the kick but the snare sounds ok to me, maybe just a touch loud.

    Your guitar tone smokes, man! You might want to add just a touch of air to the slide.

    Great stuff!!!!!!!

    I like the tempo but I don't like the beat. I give it a 6, Dick...

    Nice tambourine work - that is one difficult beat to keep up for soooo long but you are a drummer so I suppose it's in your job description!
    I like the drums as they are.
    Nice slide work yet again.
    All good I'm afraid I can't pick at nits!
