So this contest was fun for me (for many reasons) but it kind of got me into pretending to sing! Recording is a blast and its amazing how much that can increase your playing and using that part of your brain. That being said - man, i realized how horrible of a singer I am and how difficult it can be to sing if you are not a born/natural singer.

The ukulele especially because many songs use diminisehd and 7th chords etc....Those are difficult notes to sing through!

That being said - its a total hoot pretending!

That also being said:

happy holidays from strat!

I'm excited to for you to knock me out, McP.

Why are the talented ones always so insecure?

porch and riot.

I actually like the manic messiness of that version of Driving than I do the more calculated sound of the original.

nice try Mcp... I vote Mcp and Riot

I really hate my entry this round. I had big ideas, but got lazy...plus, I'm no Plant.

Would've voted for you guys anyway.

Riot...I really like your voice on this one. Might be my favorite of yours so far.

Mcp... as usual, I'm instantly drawn in by your singing and the little things you do so well. Love the haunting backing vocals.

There are a lot of old unspliced sessions that I've never bothered to fully investigate. Who the fuck knows what's on those.


No work due to blizzard today, so I'm listening through some of these and grabbing what I want to save. Holy shit, I used to record a lot. My first intention was to get through all of them today....but there are like 17 hours of sessions, rehearsals, and conversations on the old machine. Ferk.

I really enjoyed this, by the way. I just apparently opted to be a dick and not say so.

Also, Porch, I don't think "not being Plant" hurt you on this one. I imagine most of us don't get very far past "goddamn that guy can play."

I feel kind of bad because I vote against McP all the time. It's just his tough luck that I like what he's up against a little better.

So yeah. Vote for Porch and RA.

I'll make this up to you. Maybe a handjob in a dimly lit parking block or something. I'll have my people work something out.

votes for p-ball and mc-p, although I dug DDVB.

McP continues to confound me. I confess that I'm not a huge fan of your voice, but you have a remarkable ability to get to the core of a song and make it real that I find very compelling.

I'm gonna leave this open until the board transition, so as not to have that switch in the middle of a round
