Fishermans Blues (The Waterboys)


Uploaded .

My first upload.

This is a cover of probably my favourite song of all time, by The Waterboys, who were introduced to me many years ago when the highlight of my week was Thursday night TV, pizza and quaffing Baileys.

Thanks to Sister S for her encouragement and much needed kick up the backside.

@Gumbo - Thanks for you nice comment. Used Garageband, recorded both vocals and guitar on one mike, double tracked with a bit of ol'reverb, chorus and flange. Just looking for a more forgiving sound as it's my first one.

Noice version :-) whatever way you recorded that guitar is lovely. Is it reverb/delay or is it the room?

One of my favourite songs of all time - great, heartfelt version! Welcome to alonetone. (Love the melodic changes - you made it your own.)
