There is a music blog that is hosting a Dylan cover contest on youtube. Since I am a big Dylan fan and have recently started experimenting with video, I thought I'd give it a shot.

Here's my cover of Blind Willie McTell, a song I loved from the first time I heard it:

Thanks, Dan. I don't expect to do well but I was happy that it gave me nudge to try this.

Thanks Colin. I wish I could write a song like that. I think I can tell a decent story. But tapping the unconscious for poetry seems beyond me. smile

Thanks, Mackie. I would have preferred to build the intensity without adding instruments - but I'm not a good enough musician smile

So I brought in the bass on verse 3, the drums on verse 4, and the high harmony on verse 5. Fortunately there were only 5 verses grin

Hey Scott,

Gotta agree with Colin that Dylan wrote the song for Scott Campbell to sing. grin

Good stuff bud.

The video works well. Now just mix in a story line from "outside the studio", visually, and see how it goes. smile

cheers, niteshift

Thanks, Nite.

I don't think I'd know where to start in providing a visualization for Dylan. He puts pictures in my head alright - but I doubt anyone has taken them. grin

Point taken though. Maybe I'll start with my own stuff though. smile

Sorry for the delayed reply, Ricki.

Lol - no I didn't win. But they posted my video with some compliments in their comments. Was pretty pleased, considering I still don't consider myself a musician. smile

Thanks,
Scott
