...If one is interested in covers as well...
on: February 23, 2021, 16:28:10
Hi all cookers, I hope you're all good these days!

I initially thought it wouldn't really be the place for a cover, but in fact, music was completely re-written, and I did 100% of any sound in it by my own, so it finally may fit in this community...

Please let me introduce you to my cover of "Self Esteem", from Offspring's "Smash" album ('95).
Beware this has a completely different style, but I had only good feedback on it, so I guess most of you will like it. I do hope, at least ;)

Fun fact is that it was also listened to, liked, and commented back with a "Well done !" tweet from the official account of The Offspring !
My best reward ever, as you can imagine :-)

So here we go, "Self Esteem 2021" : https://soundcloud.com/sebastien-grossetti/self-esteem-offspring-cover

If you like it, please share it around you as much as you can, as I love it to be heard  :pompom: lol

All the best to you all, and keep cooking !! :)

Seb

@Sebzzz  - sure I am interested in covers. rewriting - reproducing another's song can be really informative and a good learning experience for songwriters. May be you can explain how you rewrote it, and why you chsoe this song?

Oh, well, actually, it's one of my oldest-preferred song, so it starting like just... you know, playing it on my guitar :)
With time, I tweaked it and changed rythm, in so many different ways I couldn't even remember.
Then one rythm started to come again and again, so I finally recorded it, and built from it (adding yanqin, mainly)

Finally, when I recorded voice, I wanted to "act" this as if I was really living it...  so whistling came naturally :D

I'm really glad so many people liked it, it worth all the effort (fun actually)

Cheers !!
