    Who's heard the song?

    I just did an acoustic cover and I need feedback please! My myspace is:

    http://www.myspace.com/gangsterwithaguitar

    Go there and click the "Lollipop Cover" song. It's only 2 minutes long and I did all of it by myself :D

    Thanks so much and tell me what you think! :cool:

    Thanks! :)

    I was thinking about this, but I decided not too because it's pure acoustic and I don't think it would match up all nicely and whatnot ;) maybe some reverb

    its not acoustic... stop voice moduling and the background clap and high hat thing, remove it. Change to a rattle and the clap for a acoustic high hat (just an idea). also sing more louder and clear
    but its cool

    I think you should put more emotion in it and sound louder and don't say "nigg*r". It sounds like you're recording with your parents sleeping in the next room or something.

    Other than that not a bad start.

    Thanks :D

    GarageBand - it's the best!

    Your opinion, thanks.

    I didn't wanna ruin the song by taking out a bunch of lyrics - it's part of the song. Also I didn't want people to think that I was afraid to say certain words, etc. I got shit loads of black friends, and we all call eachother each others niggas, it's just the context I guess.

    Anyways, the reason it sounds so quiet and whatnot is from the mic mainly. My condenser mic is broken and I still need to get a new one. I recorded this all with.. Wait for it.. A webcam mic and a headset. :)

    Ha yeah I feel you! I still love the song though, and I've been wanting to cover it for quite a while. I'm working on plenty of others though.

    Thanks!!

    I must say...not bad. I dig the "Framing Hanley" version of this song and this was a little like it.

    Good Luck,

    That version is very good! I was going to do some of their harmonies (like when they go to "bottles in the cluuuuuuuuub") but I decided to work with that later when I get some better equipment.

    Pretty good cover. but my honest opinion is that it lacked 'feeling', No emotion seemed to come from it. Sorry that's the only way I can describe it.

    Listen to Scooter Ward of Cold or Aaron Luis of Stain'd sing to an acoustic song.

    These guys did an acoustic cover too:

    Over all good job, do some tweaking and let us know if you put up another draft

    I don't like the original song in general, but your version was very nice!
