A rough acoustic cover of "One"

Some friends were hanging out at my house and asked if I'd play "One" for them on the acoustic guitar. It was just for fun, but it didn't sound half bad (some might say it's all bad ) so I made a very quick unpolished recording of it on my computer.

If anyone's interested in hearing it, you can download the MP3:

I hope you like it, and if you don't, then I apologize and hope it wasn't too painful.

Thanks!

That's actually pretty darn good for a rough cut. You've got a good voice, and I'm always for people adding piano parts to songs.

I really like your voice, sounds good! If that is rough I'd love to hear the 'perfect' version!

this version reminds me of the one REM covered you sound like him, good job sounds great.
i also have covered alot of u2 songs (but cant put them online)
maby some day.
but my version of one esp the part where bono say (you say love is a temple etc) i go all out loud and raspy voice. and at the end i go like (aaaaahhhhahhhhhhahhh) your's ooooohoohooo sounds good too.
i would like to hear some more covers.

Thanks a lot, I'm glad you all liked it. Maybe if I get time I'll have to do a proper recording of it. Shaun Vox- now that I think about it, it does sound a little like the REM cover you're speaking of. JOFO- I'm from Metuchen.

Take care everyone...

If you record a polished up version, I vote to add the "do you hear me coming Lord..." verses onto the end. To be honest I was half expecting you to sing them at the end of this cut. It would make it stand out a little more, too.

Wow that sounds GREAT! I love your voice!
That's the rough version? Bloody hell, I'm all for hearing a perfect version then!
The recording quality's great too! I wish I could've got that kinda quality out of my (now broken) mic

Very nice. Love the piano addition, and it's interesting how you did the "did I ask too much..." and "love is the higher law" parts.
