i think you did a good job, but you can't hear the vocals very well because the piano overpowers..  :(

Home ROCKS! You're one of the few here to have recorded it in full w. outro
so this is my fave cover of Home so far  :razz: BTW, I noticed you've got quite a
set of paws; I bet you can hit Alt+F12 with one hand (your left Alt key). I'm
using a logitec G11 so the span might actually be slightly less on yours. If
my move west works out I'll have an electronic keyboard to practice on  8)

Peace

yes I know I'll try to make one during which we could hear better!

The issue you've got there is a directional mic; with pick-up centred where
the handycam is pointed. Without a separate mic you'd have to set up the
camera further away from the keyboard to some extent - like this example

What Home loses with lyrics like oceans, five fathoms deep, it makes back
with the outro. Vanessa can continue to make lyrical gaffs like this so long
as she puts them to music this beautiful - still my fave track from H & T  :razz:

Nice job on those :) I learned Home before the record came out with the outro and I'm kind of lazy so I never went back to learn that part. Is that fast part hard? It sounds really neat. I like your piano btw :)

thanks! no it's not really hard, you've got to train a bit but it comes quite fast! So now, I'm waiting to see your cover of home!  :wink:

i love the outro to "home".

i can do the first fast part easy, but the second one is tricky because my finger next to the little one always catches a key i don't want, lol.
