“Hazy Shade of Winter” Salim (Simon & Garfunkel)

Posted on December 28, 2009

Open Mic Monday!

Here’s Salim of Kenya with a cover of Simon & Garfunkel or the Bangles, depending on your age. I love this because there are animals making noise around the microphone while the man sings and plays. Cool guitar too.

“I’m Yours” Some Kid on a Ukelele (Jason Mraz)

Posted on December 14, 2009

OPEN MIC MONDAY!!

OK, I promise the next post will be un-cute and depressing. But I love this guy! And remember, we all learn to play at some point, usually by learning a popular song.

“I Want You Back” Jer Coons (Jackson 5)

Posted on December 07, 2009

I think we’ll be hearing more from Jer Coons very soon. It seems he’s an artist who could break out in the next year. Here’s a cool little song that you can play around the campfire to impress a girl, which I’m guessing is why 95% of guys learn to play guitar. It worked for me.

“Rock With You” Jane Lui & Gabe Bondoc (Michael Jackson)

Posted on September 28, 2009

Open Mic Monday! They called him the King of Pop for a reason. This is going to be stuck in my head all day, which is just fine by me. Here are Jane Lui and Gabe Bondoc having an impromptu jam with acoustic guitar and little keyboard. I love their confidence in posting this, foibles and all. Very endearing guys!

“Rainy Days & Mondays” Aeryn Martin (The Carpenters)

Posted on September 21, 2009

There has been a deluge of rain around here for the past several days. So today on Open Mic Monday, “Rainy Days & Mondays” by renaissance woman Aeryn Martin. She’s got a good rich deep range. I probably shouldn’t have been, but I was surprised by how popular The Carpenters seem to be with Asian fans of karaoke and women who own 5 or more cats. But finally I found this version which I believe you will enjoy. Here’s to Sunny Days & Tuesdays coming your way very soon.

“Wagon Wheel” Southern Drive (Old Crow Medicine Show/Bob Dylan)

Posted on September 08, 2009

Interesting story to this song. People like to say that Bob Dylan wrote it but that’s only half true. He wrote the chorus for the western movie “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid” and left it incomplete. Ketch Secor from Old Crow Medicine Show wrote verses to go with Dylan’s choruses and the rest is southern liberal arts school sorority chick history.

Here’s some band called Southern Drive on the campus at Southern Methodist University doing a superb cover, making it their own. Good job y’all. This is the perfect first entry for Open Mic Mondays.

New Idea for Mondays – Open Mic Night

Posted on September 08, 2009

Mondays were always the slow nights on the Strip (Tuscaloosa’s row of college bars and music venues). So that’s when anyone could usually grab a guitar and step on stage for a few tunes. I can remember my Buckaroo Banzai bandmate Judge and I getting cheers for our slow acoustic “I Think We’re Alone Now” and then being summarily booed into submission for “I Kissed a Girl” (by a women’s softball team no less).

I’ve been having an internal debate over whether or not to post “amateur” or “fan” covers on this site. It has been a frustration as I scour sites like YouTube and DailyMotion that for one clip that I want to share with you, I must get through 20 or so clips from bands that have poor sound quality or from fans sitting in front of their computers with out of tuned guitars.

However, there are some real gems out there. So every Monday, I’ll find one and post it here. If possible, I’ll post what I can find out about the band or fan. Having been there and done that, if I can help someone get some publicity, then I’d like to help. But I will do everything I can to find clips with good audio and visual quality and with something to contribute, meaning a fresh take on a classic.
