    I was just writing a post about Peter Green's passing - this lovely recording of the ultimate lament was perfectly timed to remember him. I don't think even Peter could have done a better job of covering EC's heartbreaking song.

    Wim, I hope that you don't mind, but I took a stab at singing along. Unfortunately I got lost & couldn't tell which lyric came next.
    I took the liberty to edit WimVD's track.

    Mike,

    I am usually working in parallel on 2 to 3 songs and on some course lesson.
    For this song, I started by learning a basic version from Justinguitar. That must have taken a couple of days. I checked several other sources on Youtube like the original MTV unplugged version and especially the solo arrangement from Yoni Schlesinger and created my own version from that while trying to include elements from the 2 guitars from the original and some of the vocal lines.
    It must have taken about 2 weeks before I had a final version ready with the short solo embedded.
    And then I practiced it during some more weeks untill I could play it smoothly enough to record it.

    I really like the idea that you recorded you singing on top of it! That's a great way to collaborate and create something together and I'm looking forward to hear the final mix from @PapaRaptor

    Greetings from Belgium,

    Wim.

    What?:eek:
    @PapaRaptor is doing a final mix?

    I wanted to do the same.
    As I said, this is one of my favorite songs and Win did such a wonderful job, I was hoping to do a re-mix of @MikeS vocals with the guitar track.

    If Papa is working on it, I'm sure he'll do a great job.
    If Mike sends me his vocal track I'm hoping to give it a shot also.

    Then again, Papa is turning into quite and expert so, I'd probably have to ask him for some guidance anyways.:rolleyes:

    Hey @WimVD , @MikeS ,

    I was very inspired by Wim's performance on this.
    :)
    I just couldn't help singing along when I heard it.

    Then, when Mike jumped in with the vocals it made me smile, he did a great job.
    :Beer:

    I thank you both for allowing me to take a shot at remixing.

    I had three objectives:
    -Minimize the string squeaks
    -Smooth out the vocals
    -Try to make it sound like the collaboration was integrated.

    Here ya go:

    Great job, @CaptainMoto!

    The mix is very well balanced. Could you give me an insight on what you did to achieve this? And how did you reduce the string squeaks?

    Thanks.

    Wim.
