You know I was going to say that, but I didn't want to kick Sean.
I tell you honestly that anything that is a cover should have some of yourself in it. Don't be lured into a note by note, exact replica of anything.
If we heard it already, what is the point of that?
No, I like Jeff's version simply because it breathes a little and you can tell he's not trying to nail it note for note, off the recording.
(And as long as your breathing life into your creation, it doesn't have to be the exact timing either...if it isn't and it's good, you get points for having some style and inclination to break the mold.)
WHY BE SOMEONE ELSE WHEN YOU CAN BE YOU ???
