Won't you believe it, it's just my luck.
No Recess.
You're in high school again.


oh maybe this "grunge" style is what i keep writing in my music. i thought i was hooked to "heavy metal". took me forever to understand what you were saying. for example, "nose exist", "roll majest", "no resist" im trying to remember a funny one. oh well.

uh i did like the melody but everyone complains to me that i forget to make the melody catchy so im not so sure about my opinion anymore.

hmm.... i feel like it could use a bass. and some backup. and drums. but that's just me. that wasn't an insult it's just that i think it could include some accompaniment. not that it needs it.

Well, good luck in writing and creating your own music. Honestly, I like Nirvana, and I do a lot of covers, but I'm not a one trick horse. I love music. I play drums, bass, keyboards, guitar, sing, and I've been writing more and more different sounding stuff, especially recently. I've been a lifelong musician though. My parents were musicians who used to frequent the punk scene in New York with the likes of The Ramones, the Dead Kennedy's, and other such bands.

This is a nice cover! As someone else said, at some parts you do sound like Kurt and it works really well in this song. The singing is very good! The guitar playing is alright too. Admittedly I havent really heard the original song so bare that in mind when reading this. Heres some positives and negatives!
+I love the tone of the guitar
+As said above, the singing is great for this cover.
-The vocals could have done with been quieter in the mix, however. Whenever the vocalist is singing the guitar gets completely overpowered in the mix.
-The guitar playing is good, but the solo at 1:25 sounds like it has a few open strings ringing and sounds unclean (However, if that is what the original song is like, ignore this point)
-Drums and bass would have been nice!

So yeah, all in all a good cover, just watch your levels! -Smitsy

Thanks Smitsy. I will say this though. I don't ever intend on bringing cover songs into the studio. LOL I know the audio quality isn't what it could be, but it's grunge, so I kind of like how raw it sounds. Just my personal preference. I like that punk/garage rock sound.

Hello there. I like Nirvana too! Wow. In parts of this, you actually sound a LOT like Kurt Cobain.

Great playing and vocals.

There ought to be some drums to this! It'll give a bit more towards the song, along with some noise removal and cutting the clipping sound of the end of your recording. That's all I can think of to suggest. Otherwise, great cover!

Hi SilverFoxJams. Thanks.

Drums to this would sound great.

Maybe someone here can fix it up, give it some production value? I'd be curious to hear a remix. I have drums, but I can barely get good guitar and vocal quality with what I use to record. This is a live track in one take in front of a video camera. I didn't even use a microphone to do this cover. I sang into the camera.

Does anyone here want to add drums or bass? Post a link if you do.
