hey. what a cool melody. I loved the vocal harmonies.
I got to tell you. I feel all the other tracks got in the way.
it made it seem busy and I was distracted from the
melody and harmony going on; which was what my ears
really wanted. those voices had great tone and feel.
you didn't need anything else.

Really enjoyed it, elliott smith is one of my favorites for sure. I really thought your playing was spot on, and assuming this was all by ear as far as the vocal line and such, it's very impressive. Good job.

Hey Jason. That was a lovely bit of acoustic playing.
I really like the fingerpicked style of playing the guitar but I just cannot get my clumsy fingers around it, try as I might.
You should be really proud of that piece.

Rod. :wink:

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

Shades of medieval and folk here, very nice and relaxing. Good work.

nah, I take it back.

:oops:

waltz #2 is very nice. I like the sound of your guitar.
the chord changes were smooth and added to the feel
of the piece. I am unfamiliar with the original.

Really nice rendition of a great song.
Any other elliott smith covers in the works?

so many places that are hard to see
so many places that aren't
so many places we want to be
so many times we are not

here's between the bars with vocals. not the greatest vocals, and completely out of my range, but nevertheless...

yeah, thats a hard one to sing, but I think you did a pretty decent job of it
I think elliott usually played that song (and a decent share of his songs) with the entire guitar dropped down a full step... so those high notes would be not-quite-as-high
Overall nice job though
