  1. SupaDave, thanks for the constructive comments friend, exactly the type of comment i am looking for. Not necessarily positive, or negative, just constructive. Dewiecox, i agree and feel that the tune is boring, and as Supadave said, it still needs more work doing. I will add that all the guitar you hear is me playing, the bass is me too. Your right that the drum is loops, in fact two drum beats playing together. The strings are are also me playing my synth so, no i don't play violins but i did play that. That's modern technology for you. Am i to be penalised and mocked for embracing it?? Nobodysfaultbutjimmys, I'm sorry that this tune makes you feel sad, but at the same time, i'm really glad that it was able to evoke such a strong emotion from you, you confimr the power that this tune has, so thanks for that Dazza. PLEASE KEEP THE COMMENTS COMING BUT ALSO PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT STAIRWAY COVERS IN GENERAL, i.e. AS PER MY ORIGINAL POST. THANKS AGAIN
  2. Hi all. I have often thought that if any band tried to do acover of Stairway to Heaven, no matter how good that band is, or no matter how exacltly like the original their version was, they could never, ever beat the original track, in terms of the number of people that like the song. I mean, a cover could never do as good as the original or become as legendary as the original. That's my opinion anyway. I wonder what other people think about covers of this song. I believe that the only time any band can do a cover of this song is if they are playing live, and the audience wants to hear it, or even requests it. Then and only then would the listeners know that the band are playing the song, in the true spirit of the original, without trying to better it. They are just attempting to emulate the tune, and the audience would appreciate that. However, what about a tune, or song that is based on the original, but different. It depends how different. A punk rock version maybe, or a deathmetal version possibly. More likely a contemporary piece. As a guitarist I have spent hours and hours trying to learn the acoustic bits of this tune. Some bits harder than others obviously. Some tiny parts of the song stick in ones mind for extended periods of time until eventually your mind starts to warp them into slightly different bits. I eventually came up with a piece of music that I feel is a tribute to the original song. Its nothing like the original, a completely diferent genre, but at the same time it is so obviously Stairway to Heaven. I feel that nothing is ruined or copied, just used for something different. I would be extremely grateful if the greates fans in the world, of the worlds greatest ever band, would check out my piece of music at - I would be grateful for any comments but most importantly, I would like your views on the above, i.e. can the original ever be covered and if so, how would it go down? Thanks very much DazzaBurns
