Not quite done yet I think but I have  reached a point where I need some unbiased input to wrap this one up.  Staying as private on SC for now....
Mix is still not stable, changing my mind all the time and I think I probably need to kill some darlings to free up some space in the arrangement, can't decide which ones to kill.....
There is probably a bum note or two here and there  that will require some re-tracking as well (tell me, I don't hear them anymore...)
Hope poor @acoustic-alice don't get a heart attack or something...
Nah, she is young and strong, she can take it.  And she did give me permission to cover Run so...   ;D ;D
Anyway great song, great fun!
And @MartiMedia, I know it needs more compression, will fix that asap...  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Hey @Jambrains haha don't do that old switch trick putting your own words in another kitchener's mind hahaha.. generally I prefer less compression remember? Can't listen right now (on my way to airport early in the morning) but I'm looking forward to give this contribution a listen in the Greek sun.. Cheers and I'll let you know my friend!

Well the Greek evening then... wow man  ::thumb:: ::thumb::
It's fantastic to hear a complete different perspective on this beautiful original from @acoustic-alice Mr @Jambrains !
I enjoyed this version from the first to the last second. Man you know how to set up a song production. Love the combo of rhe acoustic and electric guitars (even heard a Roxette tone in one of the electric sounds, that blended really well with the rest).. I think this is impressive!
I have no reference here regarding production, using the same headphones as always, but my phone as source sounds different. So I'll check back next week when I got a hi-fi set and my audio interface as a source to comment on that.
I love your singing, I hear you really improved since we first met (we will prevail time). I could give some pointers to even improve (imo of course), let me know if you're interested!
I'm glad this competition works and wow how cool to hear us covering each other, to me that's something really special!
Back to this track: fantastic man! Karma!
Kalinichta from Greece!

Hay @Jambrains

Well if @acoustic-alice gets a heart attack it will probably be due to her enthusiasm. ;)
This is really gorgeous and I wonder how it will sound in the end. Don't kill too many darlings... ;D ::headphone::

Cheers,
Mark

Thank guys, had a blast doing this, such a great song to cover, thanks for letting me @acoustic-alice.
Five iterations later I now consider it done, the link in the original port has been updated with the public SC link.

Edit: @MartiMedia, please put forward any singing suggestions you have, I will probably not be able to execute them now but you are right, I am improving so in the future I might come back to this one...

Thanks @Goatie!    :)

@it must be me, Dutchbeat? : "but I never expected you to go that direction....towards rock!"
I do understand that me going rock must have been quite a surprise for you given the type of music I usually make  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

@Jambrains you made a really captivating "rock anthem" out of this song. Sublime! ::headphone::
I love this competition!

Hey @Jambrains , wow man, listened to my own appreciated reference soundsource and headphones, this sounds amazing!! At 3:03 there's a cymbal kicking in too loud imo, that's the only thing I found..
Well produced, great interpretation of @acoustic-alice 's beautiful song.. Well done man!! Respect!

I loved the original version of @acoustic-alice when I first heard it, it's got such a catchy chorus :)

@Jambrains : Of course my expectation was for you to slather plenty of rock onto the song - I'm happy I wasn't disappointed  ;D

Wow, the piano in the intro sounds so beautiful! Always took you for a guitar man, but you seem to be no stranger to keys, either. Very nice!
I like your alterations of the original's vocal melody. At 1:43, the line "it hurts not giving in" is a great way to lead into the chorus. Really enjoying these high notes.
Of course there had to be a guitar solo in your version! I really like the reverby sound of the lead guitar here.

Production sounds good to me. I am a fan of combining electric and acoustic guitars in a song, and you made them both sound very crisp and clear.
The same is true for pretty much all of the mix, actually. Nothing to fault here IMO. It's like the full band is right there in front of me :)
A very well executed cover!
