    Enjoyed this cover! Love the sunglasses :) Maybe a different recording area would do you some good, that way we could really hear those vocals! Looks like your enjoying yourself and that’s all that matters though!

  • Hello Gus,

    You do a good job of covering this tune…your inflections sound very similar to the Eagles…lil’ bit o’ that southern drawl. I notice ya’ have a lil’ trouble with the high notes. Part of this stems from singing from your throat, which causes the piece to sound strained. Another angle is that although you probably love the Eagles this may not be the tune for you. A common mistake that singers make is picking songs they love but aren’t equipped to pull off effectively. Try sitting with the guitar and singing scales…find your comfort zone then look for songs that fall within a similar register as your natural singing voice and you’ll be golden!
