One-Man Band Cover of "Let 'Em In"

Postby kevinlaurence1 » Mon Oct 15, 2012 2:44 am

Hey everyone,

I wanted to stop by and share my new one-man band cover of "Let 'Em In". I have always loved this song and was lucky enough to see the Macca perform it live in Miami on his 2010 tour. I hope you enjoy the video.

Thank you for your support.

Very nice Kevin. Really enjoyed that. Not only the mult-tracking aspect but the way you handled the video mixing, simple but very effective. I wish I had laid down tracks in this method. Produced a few sets of songs in the mid to late 90's all on midi, using a keyboard, yes a keyboard for the drums, bass etc. Would have been nice to have a drum set, but not much of a drummer. Did it in midi as I was going for the on-stage ability to mute tracks depending on what I wanted to play live for that song, bass, acoustic, electric or keyboard. Really wished I had done it with real instruments and would just love to re-do if I had the time and talent :)

Was actually getting to the point of planning a video mix of playing each instrument for a video drop in the live show. The cost for self-production then was crazy and never did get a drum set and then when I saw Paul ironically do it himself live during the Oprah show, (Flaming Pie & Young Boy), well, just could not top that idea. Today with the lower cost software and computer power, it's amazing what you can do and you certainly have done it, a good job. Keep it up!

That is superb, thanks for sharing!

I also watched your version of Billy Joel's "Angry Young Man" (I watched that first actually). The conversation in my head went something like this....

Me: Ha, some guy reckons he can pull off the piano intro to Angry Young Man, what a young, misguided fool! :lol: :lol:

Me, 10 seconds later: Oh. ^:)^ ^:)^ :salute
