  1. Listen to your Heart - Saga Cover & Tribute by Pekka's one man band It was released 1985 on the SAGA record Behaviour and Michael Sadler said at a radio pod that this is his favorite record to sing and I have to agree, it is fun to sing the whole record, not as I do it perfect but I love to sing it and that is the difference. https://talkinblues.podbean.com/e/talkin-blues-podcast-episode-290-michael-sadler You should all try it if you have not done it already as it is so fun and relaxing really. Well sing anything. Biggest problem is to sync everything into a video. https://www.facebook.com/pererik.peterson/posts/10158997931744843 So what differ this version from the original? It is very wet, have more voices and some more piano, some guitars, maybe also a bit more ambient? Snare comes in between 3 and 4, not at 4 as I like it better for this song and I tried both. Overproduced? it is a sorl for sure and some instruments are well hidden in the sorl and some sticks out. This song is very unique but still simple and what other song comes close? I guess: Som Glas med Fleshquartet, Freddie Walgren and Nina Person in a duet and I have the music made for that one as well. Here is the original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VH3TlXuvUJg Also Heilung with Maria Franz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSfA0i6Typw This specific song: Listen to your heart by SAGA: Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFYoYfQC8_0 Live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1_jX0t0olk (A bit to fast, but it is cool never the less but speed fits live honestly) Isn't it time I make my own music, not only covers and tributes? Well yes, really. I did put up my lullaby, didn't I? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bVB4XpLtzs and I will make more but I also want the stuff to be appealing and unique but firstly I want to record stuff that appeals to myself and all songs that means something for me, that I am also able to handle. Making every song unique, is something that SAGA really are experts at. No song sounds like another and that is so amazing, consither we only have 12 keys to play with but it is about combining them right, making the harmonies to fit together and put us into the right harmonic mood. SAGA: You are the number one and no one have done what you have done. But it is a shame, as we sure need more music like yours.

  2. I could do that Jack, and I maybe must do it if I will include 2 more singers. It is important that we all 3 get synced. Me too. Beatles sure rocks. I do have a version that is more like the original, with only cello and violin and it has the exact same rpm so I can only transfer the song to it and I also did. It sounds great as well if I may say so. Beatles where so long before everyone else making so cool stuff.
  3. I recorded Eleanor Rigby last week. A suitable song in the dark Autumn. I love it and I usually play it at parties if I bring my guitar that is.
  4. I did use an Exciter (Free VST) on the voice, to make it a bit more crispy and also more full or filled in the middle range. I might add more singers on this song later. We will see in 2 weeks. They both have lighter and more crispy voice than I have. This is also the first time I sing in a recording at all. But we will focus at Eleanor Rigby and a Swedish song called Like Glass - Som Glas, here performed by Freddie Whalgren and the Flesh Quartet in original with Nina Persson from The cardigans. I sure want to do my own version of this brilliant song
  5. So I take the aucustic nylon guitar, glare at it, put it aside, why? The Jackson is softer That nylon guitar is unique though, lower strings and medium size, makes it bit klonky to play, but damn fast. I also use something really sift to sit on while playing, to point out - THIS IS SOFT - ULTRA SOFT Here is what the nylon sounds like when I play something I learned the basics off 1982 - Turn up the volume as it is very low in the video. I now know how make it louder....
  6. Saga - Tired World - A song I liked for many years, recorded 1978 the first time so it was time I made a cover of it. I did fake the solo part at 2 places as they where to fast to play and trust me, I really tried but you cannot see nor here exact where... I will tell you if you wanna know and also how I did it. Software used for the fake part was Audacity but I so all base recordings with Audacity and transfer them later to Cakewalk, after I Normalized them and also reduced noises. The drums sounded very static first, a drum machine with real recorded drums so I fiddled some with the high hat and added a delay to it and suddenly, the drums sounded as realistic as they can be I guess. My version is running in 93 bpm and the delay is 120 bpm but should maybe be set to 124 but it got such a nice swing / shuffle feeling, so I kept it at 129 bpm and a role is. Never touch anything that is working. The recording is done in/with Audacity, guitars and song Cakewalk for drums, keyboards and to put all pieces together.
