Steemit Open Mic [Week 94] - Book of Right On Cover [Joanna Newsom]

in openmic •  last year  (edited)

Hopefully this one is not too late this time, hah ^_^'
I am feeling much better after some flu/stomach sickness that would not go away..that was not fun.

This week I am covering Joanna Newsom. She's an artist I have covered before, but I feel my updated equipment and recording technique has become a little better. Giving this rearrangement of this song the feels it deserves! I'm experimenting by of running my guitar through the vinyl simulator on the sp404sx after running through the helicon vocal/line preamp for an intense tremolo effect. Lemme know what you think!

Appreciate you!

Lyrics:

We should shine a light on
A light on
And the book of right-on's right on
It was right on
We should shine a light on
A light on
And the book of right-on's right on
It was right on

[Verse 1]
I killed my dinner with karate
Kick 'em in the face, taste the body
Shallow work is the work that I do
Do you want to sit at my table?
My fighting fame is fabled
And fortune finds me fit and able
And you do say oh
That you do pray
And you say
That you're ok

[Verse 2]
Do you want to run with my pack?
Do you want to ride on my back?
Pray that what you lack does not distract
And even when you run through my mind
Something else is in front, oh, you're behind
And I don't have to remind you
To stick with your kind
And you do say oh
That you do pray
And you say
That you're ok

And even when you touch my face
You know your place
And even when you touch my face
You know your place

[Chorus]
And we should shine a light on
A light on
And the book of right-on's right on
It was right on
And we should shine a light on
A light on
And the book of right-on's right on
It was right on
