Steemit Open Mic Week #86 - Don't you worry about a thing (Stevie Wonder) - Cover.

in openmic •  last year  (edited)

Hello Steemit!

Today I am entering a little different entry to Open Mic than usual , I was not really planning on participate on this week because of time issues but since the start of #ilovetheopenmic tag I thought I could keep adding my little grain of support to this contest. 

As you may know , the Open Mic contest is going through a little bump on the road and had to lower the prizes it gives weekly , @luzcypher has been running the contest at his loss and I think it is time for the rest of the community to lend a hand. So , here are some posts explaining the ''Operation Open Mic''

I also did a post of which earnings I will donate:

So , for today's entry I will use the tool I suggested ( and donate 100% of this entry , until we turn the situation around I will  keep on supporting as much as I can in funding the contest. I'm a small account but we  can all help! 

Here is how I set the tool , @luzcypher , please let me know at payout if it all got transferred correctly :)

So to the actual entry , today I decided to cover one of my favorite artist off all time's songs ''Don't you worry about a thing'' by Stevie Wonder , a tough ''latin infused'' tune that I love.. it is extremely hard to perform vocally and I wish I had the range to perform it but... anyways , it was fun!

Hope you like it :) !

"Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing"

(Stevie Wonder)

Everybody's got a thing
But some don't know how to handle it
Always reachin' out in vain
Accepting the things not worth having but

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama
Cause I'll be standing on the side
When you check it out

They say your style of life's a drag
And that you must go other places
But just don't you feel too bad
When you get fooled by smiling faces but

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama
Cause I'll be standing on the side
When you check it out...Yeah
When you get it off...your trip
Don't you worry 'bout a thing...Yeah
Don't you worry 'bout a thing...Yeah

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama
Cause I'll be standing on the side
When you check it out...
When you get it off...your trip

Everybody needs a change
A chance to check out the new
But you're the only one to see
The changes you take yourself through

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, pretty mama
Cause I'll be standing in the wings
When you check it out

Whoa... Damn, Pechiche... That was rather outstanding, brother! Nice, man - loved it!

Thank you passion brother !! sorry for the late response :P ! I love this song! Stevie is such a genius and makes it look easy .. but it proved a 'not so little' challenge to perform ! hahaha . Cheers brother !

Most welcome, Pechiche! That was a great rendition, brother! Very few people have the talent and skill to pull something like that off - it was great, man! Cheers!

Pechi!!! You nailed it! This is SO GOOD! I did not know you had that range!

I must say, that I am in awe of your music AND your HEART. You are an inspiration to MY own heart. There should be more Pechiche menas in the world, it would be a nicer place. I am going to check out steemwhales.

In the meantime... Have some PIZZA.

First of all : NOMS PIZZA COOKIE


Thank you so much Serena for your constant lovely words , I can only say I am also in awe of your music and heart ( and terrified of fried twinkies ) , you are doing more here that MANY just by being your loving self. About more pechiche menas.... bad idea.. they are stubborn and usually get in fights with other pechiches .. it could start wars and bring upon the end of the world.. it is best to have one and contain him with pizza cookies :P

Much Love


What is this delicious cookie pizza?!

Vegetarian pizza! 😍

IT IS MINEE!! .... ( ok.. you can have a little ) .. shares cookie pizza


That, sir, was some good shit.

This is good shit @carrieallen ! MWAHAHAHA

AHHHHH! I also have 3 EPICS... and no LEGENDARIES.
Though I got two mermaids. I dig mermaids. They are totally real. And they will DESTROY YOU!!!!

Hi! We're back with some feedback :D

I love the break at 1:55, this is the strongest part of the song, perhaps you can start the song off with 4/8 bars from this section before going in to the first verse.

It's nice to see your eyes, the glare in your glasses from the window makes it hard, maybe you can adjust the lighting angle here. Also, when eyes are closed, its less engaging than when you are looking at your chord progression on the neck, try to practice so you can play without looking. We know its a hard song but it's definitely worth a try :)

Oh .. feedback ..grabs crayons to take notes

Thank you for the detailed info , i will have to look into it a little more to see how I can better my solo performances ... And yes the glass glare is an issue.. I need to either play without looking at the computer.. or without glasses... I'm quite blind so I can't read lyrics if I take em off.. I'll have to rely more on memory then :)

Thanks for the comment !

Love that song. Well played.

Thank you very much @luzcypher :) ! Glad you liked it ! I'm donating the rewards on this one too :) . Trying a new tool , maybe it can be usedby other steemians !


Awesome cover, smooth criminal.

Thank you Lilly! starts eating butter....
