  1. Such an honor Peggy to include "First Love, Last Love" on your list....Thanks
  2. I think you did a good job on the tune & more importantly made yourself vulnerable....Took a big step here This has more of a DIXIE CHIX vibe than STEVIE for sure in it.....Your phrasing was definitely DIXIE CHIX, "well maybe" was something the CHIX threw in.........Also remember this song was built on TRAVIS Picking....As a Country Singer, doing this as a cover with a single Guitar, with TRAVIS picking would give it a touch more authenticity.....Study how Lindsey Buckingham plays this tune on YouTube, it is amazing how much fuller the tune sounds with the picking pattern.... I would pick a Cover that HASN"T been covered before and been a SMASH a second time....To kind of make your own....Not only did I compare you to Stevie but also to the Dixie Chix.....I personally LOVE both versions....STEVIES recording quality is below the CHIX...But it was THE CLASSIC song from a CLASSIC. ICONIC band...and so simple This song goes down on a couple melody spots which were tough for Stevie to be heard on the original recording in a studio...How much tougher live on YouTube to pick up those notes, with I'm guessing a single mic...... I am a Country & Christian Artist & can tell you this...You are in the right spot to develop your gifts, being in Nashville...lots of people to learn from & a ton of Talent all around you....Be you, & find your voice....
  3. This is what it's all about Musicians helping Musicians..... I would love to hear the outcome
  4. I need someone to do this for me too....Just a basic one for now.... Not my strongsuit
  5. The key is to build up a reputation....ALL these places are NOT alike.... I hear some of the work & it is not Pro... if you got the chops do it and charge accordingly...But alot of these places are PROS who just want to supplement their income.... Marketing is 2nd to word of mouth on this
