Cover of A whiter shade of pale

edited September 2014 in Creations

Here's my tribute to (IMO) the best song ever written. I tried to keep the "vibe" from the original, rather than making a "new" version of it (e.g. Annie Lennox. Not that there's anything wrong with here version. Just not for me).
I've played this song many times through the years, we always ended our gigs with it. It also has some emotional value for me, because it was the favourite song of my buddy who played keys with us, and passed away last summer. I actually sang it at his funeral.

Anyway, end of rant... here's the song:

Apps used: Audiobus, Gallileo, Drum Studio, MT Daw, Cubasis, iGrand, Audio Mastering.

    Thanks a lot for the kind comments!

    I actually have some original stuff on my SC as well. Posted the last one a while back:

  • That's a damn good cover of a great song. Superb vocal track, and a moving tribute. Are you playing all the instruments?

  • Great vocal and organ sound, a nice touch of "grit" to both! Love it.

  • Again, thanks a lot for the nice feedback.

    Yes, I play all the instruments (well, the drums are programmed).

    About the organ, yep, I really love Gallileo. I took the "pales of shade" preset, and tweaked it just a hair, then turned up the gain a bit for that extra dirt :-) Great app.

  • We'll done! I didn't see anything guitar related in your app rundown.

    Thanks! I didn't use any guitar apps. The only guitars I used are a couple of acoustics, and they were mic'ed.

  • Nailed it. Great job

  • This is beautiful.

    Beautiful song, beautiful rendition, beautiful tribute to your friend.

  • Wonderful, possibly "the greatest' rock song ever! I like the way you did this, theres no better rendition possible just straight up. Your vocals become another instrument, so well suited, that the whole of it gets to your soul as did the original.
    I enjoyed very much, thank you!

  • Wow, I'm overwhelmed! Seriously, thanks a lot everyone!

  • Awesome, great instrumentation and your vocals evoke early Faces, Joe Cocker,Terry Reid that whole late 60's & early 70's vibe. You authentically nailed it.

  • Brilliant, best cover of this song I've heard

  • Honestly i was hoping for something re-arranged!

    But yeah, brilliant none the less!
