SSA Blogathon songathon – Lagavulin

Well… apparently I’m not done yet. jolo5309 requested some next-level jazz stuff that I simply couldn’t pull off with an acoustic guitar, so I asked him to re-request something. He foolishly asked me for some Canadian prairie rock, not realizing that I am newly a huge fan of Saskatchewan’s Wide Mouth Mason. I’ve been looking for an …

SSA Blogathon Songathon wrap-up

Phew! I think it’s all done. My original plan to play the 5 or 6 song requests that would trickle in over the course of a single Sunday afternoon was COMPLETELY BLOWN OUT OF THE WATER. Apparently you were far more generous than I thought, because I received a total of 22 requests! A summary …

SSA Blogathon Songathon: The Last of Barrett’s Privateers

I am clearly a bad Canadian, because I hadn’t heard of Stan Rogers before Ryan made this request: A great song though. My voice can’t do it justice. Compare this to the original here. Like this article? Follow me on Twitter!

SSA Blogathon songathon: Highway 61 Revisited

Here’s a little fact that most of you probably don’t know about me: I hate Bob Dylan’s music. Not only do I hate Bob Dylan’s music, but I don’t understand anyone who likes it. I recognize that everyone has their own preferences when it comes to something as subjective and personal as music, but Bob Dylan …

SSA Blogathon Songathon: Eleanor Rigby

Robin wanted to hear this classic Beatles tune. Apparently while I was recording it, I was also going through puberty. It’s about damn time. Compare this to the original here. Like this article? Follow me on Twitter!

SSA Blogathon songathon: Surrender Dorothy

Johnny Vector requested that I learn and perform a song by his band, Naked Singularity. The man paid his money, and thus his wish is my command: Compare this to the original here. Like this article? Follow me on Twitter!

SSA Blogathon Songathon: Ziggy Stardust

Mike requested a David Bowie cover, and since I didn’t have a horde of goblins to do “Magic Dance” with me, I settled for this one: Compare this to the original here. Also, I have a new guitar. I haven’t named her yet, but I’m very excited about her. Like this article? Follow me on …

SSA Blogathon songathon: Mad World

Armored Scrum Object made the mistake of giving me a long list of songs to choose from, so I picked one I’ve been meaning to learn for a while now. Compare this to the original here. Like this article? Follow me on Twitter!

SSA Blogathon Songathon: Whiskey in the Jar

Long-time Cromrade Riptide (for reasons I cannot fathom) wanted to hear me cover Thin Lizzy’s cover of “Whiskey in the Jar”. I decided to spare you my horribly-offensive Irish accent. Compare this to the original here. Like this article? Follow me on Twitter!

SSA Blogathon songathon: Levon

I continue to soldier on through your requests. This one was submitted by pandademic, who pledged $15 to hear me cover some Elton John. As I said in my response to the request, Sir Elton is tough to do adequately without a piano, but I gave it my best shot. Compare this to the original …
