Yoyo!!

As I won't be able to post this weekend or tomorrow, I thought I do a quick post today about that Whitney Houston's song I was working on.

There was 3 covers that I was working on at the moment:
I have Nothing by Whitney Houston, Headlines by Drake and Human Nature by Mickael Jackson.

Any cover that I work on always serves a purpose.
This one, it was to work on modulation (it's when a key changes).

It's such an interesting track, I Have Nothing, written by David Foster and Linda Thompson (married together), and one of the soundtracks of the movie Bodyguard.

Funny fact, it's one of the most sung song by American Idols contesters, and I can understand why, it's all about the vocal prowesses, and the emotion, it culminates with one last chorus, just so well written.

The thing is I didn't think I was ready to sing it, I need to know the lyrics by heart and I really wanted the guitar to be solid, but there was a nice weather and I won't have time to record any other day so I was like "fuck it", and I gave it a try.

My cat came to bomb the song hahaha but it's alright, maybe she just wanted to contribute a little.
Actually she was just hungry...

I could have tried another version, but I was like "naaah it will be fine", anyway it's not like it's going viral, it's just so I can keep staying sharp, playing a song every week, yadi yada!

I am not exactly happy with the result, because, and I can't believe I am saying that, but I got scared!

Yea! By this I mean that I know the song well, by heart, I've worked on it for a while now, but once I press the record button on Cubase and on the camera, I felt a little pressure to deliver.

I know, it's silly, you would think that after some times I should get used to playing in front of the camera, but I think it's because it's a difficult song, and I didn't want to mess up the lyrics...Which I did 😌

Share my life
Take me for what I am
'Cause I'll never change
All my colors for you
Take my love
I'll never ask for too much
Just all that you are
And everything that you do
I don't really need to look
Very much further
I don't wanna have to go
Where you don't follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
Can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide
Don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you, you, you, you, you
You see through
Right to the heart of me
You break down my walls
With the strength of your love, mm
I never knew
Love like I've known it with you
Will a memory survive
One I can hold on to?
I don't really need to look
Very much further
I don't wanna have to go
Where you don't follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
I can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide
Your love I'll remember forever
Don't make me close one more door
I don't want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
Don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me
No, don't walk away from me
Don't you dare walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you
If I don't have you, oh, oh

So yeah that's my version of the song, for those that don't read and just scroll all the way down, may I ask you to play the song once, from beginning to end? It will help me with the algorithm, and user retention is a big factor.
You don't even have to keep the volume up, just play the song ok?

Thanks!! 🙏

Of course, if you want to give it a like, you can do that too!

And regarding my "experiment" since the 17th of November, I've deleted all social media apps on my phone just to take a month break from the rat race, and I just have a lot of time, I am surrounding myself with my wife, kids and our animals, and I'll figure something to write about next week!

So now I am staring at the page, and waiting for midnight for pressing the publish button. Are you doing OCD shit like that? (I am not talking about the curation group but the compulsive disorder :D)

I just have principles...

Moew too hahaha.

Thanks for even passing by, and thanks for listening too, you're awesome!

dude lofi artist? where can I find that? I'm all about lofi lately. perfect for pushing pixels...

perfect for pushing pixels...

Talking like a tru lofi artist hahaha...

brah! Where are you posting your lo-fi? I need that shit ;)

Bro:

Lo-fi is a music or production quality in which elements usually regarded as imperfections in the context of a recording or performance are present, sometimes as a deliberate choice

Everything that I do is Lofi 😂 especially my second album Aimee was so imperfect its maybe too Lofi hahah does it mean "amateurish"? Perhaps...

Interesting, everything I find Calling itself lofi on youtube tends to be more groove oriented, instrumental chill hop type stuff. I assumed "lofi" meant low fidelity or something having to do with the lack of or low quality of the very high frequencies in the recording/production. usually there is some kind of ambient noise in the upper register filling space... I guess all my music is lofi too in that case =)

Excellent performance, and a wonderful choice of scenery. Congratulations brother, the photos are great. The light tones of each photograph are perfect. I didn't know this song was by David Foster. How nice it feels to learn.

The Bodyguard movie is a classic that I love. You are a great artist.

!LUV

Ah, thanks for the comment, I am also happy you liked the pictures, I always try to have them in the same theme.

I also didn't know about David Foster, while searching for some info I discovered that he wrote or co-wrote many hits from Earth Wind and Fire, he also wrote for Kenny Loggins, he produced the song "Unbreak My Heart" by Tony Braxton, so I start seeing a pattern here of his style

What a great brother! I really like this song, and you give it a unique flow.
I think you did wonderful, sometimes the songs come out better than we think hehe. Best regards! 👊💯🌊🎶😎⭐🎆🌟🎵🙌👏👏🔥🌞🎊🎉😀🎼🤩🙏

Hola hermano!!! Thanks brother, I wasn't too sure about this one, I am still on the fence, I might delete it later hahaha.

Best Regards to you too ^^

Interesting rendition of this modern-day classic @edprivat. Worth a re-blog...😎 Ain't I wonderful...?!?!?!?!

Interesting is the right word for it, I listened to it again a minute ago and hated it haha, it's crazy how the mind play tricks on us once the adrenaline dump occurs...
I can only hear when I am out of tune now, so I am going to skip it instead!

Thanks for the reblog though, it is indeed a classic, one could even say a monument.

So right, Ed... A good reason to hold off publishing stuff for a day or so. Like having wrote a nasty letter to someone, mailed it right away, then had a change of heart soon afterward.

Listen to it five years from now, you'll probably hate it even more😏

I 'un' reblogged it as a favor to you😎

Yeah that's about right, what you just described. But what is that thing you call a "letter"? You mean twitter? 😂😂😂

Bro I appreciate the reblog gesture, Thanks 👍🙏 pal 😌 I hope you're doing good 😊🙂

De qué hablas, muchacho? Esto salió rebonito!!! 😊✨✨ Adorables esas melodías! Sin muchos grititos, la armonía de tu voz con la guitarra es perfecta; déjalos a ellos con sus concursos de tv 😁

¡Ay! Es muy amable de tu parte decir jajaja, todavía no estoy seguro del todo, creo que podría haber cambiado la tonalidad, es más fácil tocar en G, ¡así que no quería cambiarla!

If you are using PeakD then you can schedule the post - anytime any day. No need to state at the clock.

The cat adds character to the song. Singing along with you. Plus the internet loves cats.

Yeah I know what you mean, I've been using it in the past, but what I mean by this, is that there was no particular reason for to wait until midnight, it just one of those.

Sometimes while making a sandwich, I like to give myself a little countdown and make sure I finish it before the countdown.
Now that I am saying it out loud it sounds a little bit kookoo hahaha...

So right before I took a break on Instagram, the biggest thing was a particular ginger cat singing with a piano, and then musicians using the same clip and playing over it.

That's when I knew I had too much time on my hand 🤣

Lmao 😂
Okay yeah I gotcha.
I know exactly what you mean. Anytime a perfectly even number is involved - time, or money or whatever. An example for me would be something like This month I'm going to put $243.73 into savings just so that the number is exactly $1100.00. Or something like that. Even when you know the number will change in a day or two or whatever, it's that brief moment of satisfaction of a clean even number.

it's that brief moment of satisfaction of a clean even number.

Yes!! This dude gets it!!

Great performance! The stage is amazing. Blessings

Ah thanks Alejandro, I truly appreciate the comment!

Dude, that background sounds with the birds, wind and water.... its just perfect!

Yeha a nice vibe for sure, thanks very much for passing by Mr Flute! I knew you would like the birds hahaha.
