All I Can Do - Lynyrd Skynyrd Cover

A cover of "All I Can Do Is Write About It" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. It's actually one of the earlier songs that I learned, but I've not really played it that much recently. Not sure why. It is a bit obscure, but not as obscure as the last couple I recorded and posted. Don't let the Vermont-NY-Carolina accent scare you off. :D

Two things I worked on for this song. Letting the voice ring out some more, and a little more fluid strums, Maybe less rigid is a better phrase. Whatever. I got off to a rough start with the vocals, but got better as the song went on. It's about all my ear can handle for now, so perhaps sometime later I'll do another version. I did want to post what I had so far as there is evidence of me letting my voice out.

You might have to turn it up a tad. It was low on my PC for some reason.

Well, um, enjoy?

Thanks guys? I appreciate it.

Joe, yes, I did some last week. A couple really slow ones that no-one has ever heard before. They were another in a series of attempts to sing behind the curtain, so to speak. Failed again, so I said the heck with it for some of this song and let the voice out. I did have a time getting going, but it did come out not too far into the song.

I also have been trying to ease the tension in my arms and wrists and I think I made a little headway with this song.

Smokindawg, pollen has a funny effect on my voice. I could not even sing two days ago. The world was a better place, if only for a day.
