Default Me and my girlfriend playing Big Me

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUQurSN4BMM

I'm the guy, if you didn't already figure. Be harsh if you please, I can take it. It's a school 90's variety show, so I thought it'd be perfect for some Foo!

P.S. We changed some things to make it a bit longer and easier for us. Any differences are for that reason.

Your girlfriend should have sung the harmony part!

That's my biggest problem with it, both of you are pretty good singers, it just never sounds that great when two people are singing the same note constantly because of intonation issues. Otherwise nice job

Sounds good! I tend to play the F in barre form though.

We probably should have done a cover more like the skin and bones version of Big Me. I agree that my voice got a bit lost behind his. Singing the harmony would have helped. But I also have a typical "choir girl's" voice, so it's not a unique, strong or as loud as his. Plus, I was quite nervous doing this performance. I have never really done anything like it.

By the way, I'm the girlfriend he speaks of..

What chords are you playing on the verses? that last one doesn't quite sound like an F.

It is an F. I do some hammer ons and picking on it, so that might mess with the sound a bit, but it is an F.

I've never seen Taylor Hicks stand there like that when a microphone is in her face.

You do a great job, but I would give her more spotight and leads, she is way easier on my eyes! Hahaha!
Overall a fine performance, but like a saiid, she needs to take the song and run with it, as it is she just appears to be following you through the song. There was a few parts she came in to the light though, just keep up the good work!

Haha, this was her first performance aside from choir concerts, and she never had a major part, so she was pretty nervous just to perform. She didn't seem to want any "big" (me) part XD, so I let her do what she wanted. I wish she would've been louder but I think that was also partially due to the mics not being synced well. When we do it alone, she's usually stronger than she was in the performance.

and thanks. I'll work on the looks :P

Wow, nice cover... You really have some talent there.

But, If you don't consider putting a ring on GF, & producing a bunch of little Foo Fans, Hey?... It's your call!
