Beautiful song. It is hard to improve the Bill Withers' version.

The most important should be if you get fun while playing.

Sometimes I can not hear your guitar. I guess you move your position and the mic can not record it properly. Concerning the singing. It can be done in a simpler way. It is Ok when you try to emphasize but usually it makes the listener (at least, me) forget the original melody.

Yes, it was done very well. Your voice wasn't tense, it was relaxed, and you enjoy the song - so did I. 8)

Like a bird on the wire,
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.

I like it. I've been toying with the song myself.

It is difficult to answer when one does not understand the question.

ska, great to see your'e still around and playing. Great job, you made the song your own, I thought, sounded good. Your voice has gotten great.
