Sweet Leaf ~ Reggae cover of the Black Sabbath song ~ R24

Post by Lungfruit » Sun May 14, 2017 6:33 pm

I've been having a lot of fun recently learning Reggae chords & progressions. I had this song complete but with a different set of lyrics and then I happened to be hear Black Sabbath do this one and I thought the words fit.

Hi Lungfruit. Still here. I was out of town for a few days.

Nice work. You have a unique sounding voice. You've developed a cool style around it.

Good music. Good playing. Are the drums "real"? I know guitar and bass are. You fit it all together nicely. And you managed to fit the lyrics to another song to this instrumentation. That's a tough one. Good work.

Thanks for listening. The drums are me using the reggae kit on the DN10. I've never really figured out how to program drums (and I'm too lazy to learn) so I just play.

More fun too!

Busy time for some reason!

Another unique take on a song

Quite raw and it sometimes felt it was on the point of falling over itself but you held it all together :D

Cheers

Thanks for listening Dick. I agree that it could be tighter, especially in the very beginning. Glenn
