​🎶 ​April Recording Challenge 90 - Nostalgia: Hits from a simpler time 🎙️🎸


Recommended Posts

April's challenge comes from @Nairon, who won the March edition.

The topic is "Nostalgia: Hits from a simpler time".

 

As usual, the "winner" is selected randomly and the prize is that he or she gets to choose the topic for the next challenge.

So let's grab our guitars and make some music.

 

Wim.

I was a teenager in the Eighties, when Cyndi Lauper scored a hit with this pop song which is pure nostalgia to me.

It was originally played on keyboards. Eva Cassidy recorded a great guitar version.

This is my short rendition. Chords and melody were played fingerstyle and recorded on separate tracks.

Great job.  My wife loves this song and her The Body Acoustic album had a great acoustic version.  Thanks for posting.  I might have to queue it up on this weekend's playlist.  😎

Thanks Greg. I had this song on my "to learn" list for quite a while. This monthly challenge triggered me to finally put in the work.

Hey everyone, I did a cover of "All I have to do is dream" for this month (session four of the Song Hits). Had a lot of fun doing this song. It was my first time doing a backing track and using a DAW. Hope you enjoy.

@Nairon, very good. If that is your first attempt using the backing track with a DAW, you are to be commended. That is not an easy task and to expect results as well as yours turned out.

Thanks man. I tried to keep it simple since I'm only in the early days of the L&M course. The Reaper DAW was fairly easy to install and use for the basic things I was trying to do. I'm officially a fan.

@Nairon As Henk said, this is a great start recording with a DAW. Both chords and melody were played and recorded very well.

I am sure you will learn a lot if you continue to record more songs.

Thanks Wim, I appreciate it man. I saw a lot of good tutorials on the Reaper DAW on YouTube.

Very nice Nairon. The notes are cleanly played with some real stylistic feel added, not the typical first recording we hear here. I would say you have some musical gifts to share  with a big upside.
