VOM1T July 2019

Recommended Posts

It's VOM time again so let's hear some music.

 

My submission this month is a song penned by Neil Young that featured on the CSNY 1970 album "Deja Vu".

 

 

"Helpless" by Neil Young

A stripped down cover played on my 12 string acoustic guitar strummed with the side of my thumb and sung in "head" voice. One take recorded with a single Toshiba EM-120 condenser microphone about 2 feet in front of me.

Good choice Howard. I've been listening to NY lately. I think he got a lot of people motivated to learn guitar. Well done.

Another twofer for me. Both originals. First, a country tune with an unusual history. I wrote the first verse and chorus in about 2005 but I couldn't think of a second verse. I finally wrote a second verse about five years later and recorded the song for a VOM several years ago. I always thought it needed a third verse and I finally wrote one last week. Herewith, I present "You Could've Left It At That":

 

Second is a Christian song based loosely on The Lord's Prayer, called "In My Quiet Place." I posted this a couple of years ago but I've been singing it again lately so I thought I might as well share it: https://soundcloud.com/david-phelps-681437607/in-my-quiet-place.

garthman - I confess I wasn't familiar with that one but I listened to the original and you did good. Well done.

Idunno - Seems like it's been a while since I've heard that one but I enjoyed it. Thanks for posting.

Really strong VOMIT this month. I liked ‘em all. Deep End’s guitar playing is always spot-on.

 

i always enjoy I Dunno’s country tunes too. This one was no exception. She could have left it at Dear John.

 

I always got put off by NY’s voice. But for the first time, I noticed the lovely lyrics to that tune Howard.

 

nothing from me for awhile I’m afraid.
