Leonard Cohen - Suzanne

Post by elpantalla » September 16th, 2009, 8:18 pm

Hey guys. Sorry, I haven't been on here in awhile. College is keeping my really busy. So much work.

Anyway...the second day I was here I was really really depressed. I wasn't used to being away from home and I just felt awful. I recorded a cover of Leonard Cohen's Suzanne that day. I think it came out really nice. The depression may have helped. Check it out. Hope you enjoy.

One chord is fine.
Two you're pushing it.
Three and you're into jazz.

really nice. the guitar is good.
your voice sounds a bit lower in register from your other posts.
I particularly like the sound of it here.
I find Cohen hard to cover. I think you did a fantastic job.
keep up with the depression; it sounds good on you.

just kidding. but you do sound good.

Yeh, I like the lower voice too.
Beautiful song and very pretty guitar work . . . I love the finger picking.
Were you singing while playing?
It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Really enjoyed that. One of my favourite songs BTW. Kind of wish you would cut the ending re the voice hurts tho.sort of spoiled the overall effect.Your voice kind of reminded me of a Cohen Dylan cross. Good Job
