This is incomplete. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even mean to post it yet, just messing around with the site’s options but since it’s up, here it is.

The lyrics are 99% the same as the original (except only the first two verses), the thing to listen for here is the arrangement, mood. I’m seeking something more musical to convey the impending doom sentiment of Dylan’s lyrics.

OK, i was about to say “hey” this should be for originals, but then I remembered I did the same thing, so to speak, with “Hey Joe” changing the lyrics a lot to make the song mean what i wanted to say. Sooo, I did like the feel of the song/your style. It reminded me of Kurt Cobain with some of his unplugged stuff. Which I like, so i hope you take that as a compliment. I did struggle to make out the words some of the time. I think if you do do covers, take greater liberty in making the song your own with changing the words to suit your meaning, so my question is, “Is the rest of song saying what you want after your first two verses?

    Kurt Cobain, that is a very interesting observation to me. I really couldn’t overstate how much I respect what he did so that kind of blows me away that you said that. Care to elaborate?

    I like that you encourage me to take liberty with the lyrics. I agree 100% and think that suggestion is an excellent idea; probably exactly what I’ll do. Thanks for the help.

    Also, I’m probably not the only one who would love to hear your rendition of Hey Joe..

      Right on about posting the “Hey Joe thing” I gotta dig into my recordings and see if i can find it; if not, I’ll do a re-do and post it shortly. yeh, I thought you did have the unplugged Kurt Cobain feel, and, I can’t tell you the name of the song, but I was listening to the radio in the car, with my son, and the band “Smashing Pumpkins” was playing some song with mostly acoustic guitar and it had the same feel/style as yours. Anyway, you said care to elaborate: what struck me was the way you sang. The way you, um, kinda dragged the inflections of the syllabels (don’t know how to spell that word) of the words and the pitch was good enough to sound good. It’s not a smooth singing stye; I don’t know how to explain it; it’s kind of a smooth growl which still has a pitch which is still pleasing to listen to. Keep on doing your thing Rembow.

      I posted “Hey Joe Ya Whore” give it a listen–tell me what you think.

I agree that the lyric is hard to make out. Maybe if you didn’t ham it up so much it would be clearer. By that I mean the vocal performance seems a little over embellished at times. I like the original song. i kinda feel like I’ve heard this melody before. it has a more melancholy feel than the original. I guess those are my impressions. Sorry I don’t have more insight.
