Default Exhausted (acoustic cover)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmv7m6ECU1E

I'd always wanted them to do an acoustic version of this song because it works so well acoustically. I was honestly surprised that they didn't even play this (or A320, for that matter) when they embarked on their acoustic tour a few years ago. Anyway, this is my rendition, enjoy

Thanks!

I totally forgot about that performance- that's the only time they've played it acoustically that I know of. I love how Taylor was like 'wtf' when Dave suggested playing it (probably because they hadn't played it in a long time, I'm guessing) and then was all excited about it.

That cover was good, I liked the nature video of that fox trying to get across the stream. Exhausted, to me is a very dark song especially when it's played acoustically, well done with the vocals too again hard. Nice job, I also loved the reverb/delay thing you had going on, gave it a little bit of haunting sound.

Thank you! I agree with you entirely about Exhausted being a very dark song. It's absolutely saturated with feelings of emptiness and uncertainty. I tried my best to capture that emotion (especially with the heavy reverb in the piano), so I'm glad you picked up on it.

Cheers!

Awesome cover dude, really really enjoyed it ...better than mine!!! haha.

Mine ended more of an exercise to see how accurate I could recreate the original using GarageBand. You've inspired me to do another one and make it more my own like you've done

sounds good man! a rare original take on the song.

I also like how you didn't go too overboard on the piano, and the reverb filling in the gaps is really nice.

Thanks man! I checked yours out and you did an awesome job recreating the song...sounds almost exactly like the original, nice work!

Thanks! Yeah I was trying to make the song feel really lush but at the same time maintain the kind of lonely, empty feel that the original has.

I like it when people cover a song and give it an extra touch instead of just copying it. Congrats on doing that - the piano-playing is simple but great!
