So the second Cover Song Thursdays song video is now viewable and it’s a Bob Dylan Song. I must say I’m enjoying the process of putting these together although it takes a bit of time and I’m on a good technical learning curve at the moment. So let me know what you think and if there’s any song you’d like me add to the to do list!
She belongs to me
This is a warm blanket of a song. One of those that just wraps around you and you get lost in it. There’s something hypnotising about the original with Dylan and his band. The lyrics seem so natural yet they are abstract. You don’t know if the woman is a real woman or whether he’s personifying something else, maybe America or if it’s a bit of both. In fact I know I don’t know what it’s about and I don’t care. I love the feel of it and the guitar part in the background in the original is so cool I wanted to feature something similar in this version. The Open G tuning lent itself well to that task, I think. I recently unearthed my version again for a special themed night called the Brownbread Mixtape which many Dubs have been at. Dylan was the theme so it was great to have the excuse to work it up again and always great to play there.
So that’s the craic. I hope you like my version and please share it with anyone you think will enjoy it!
