How do you rate my different takes of Mystery Train - Tiger Man?
Now y’all need to give your opinion on this – and don’t be mad for recording such material. When one reaches this certain age you just need to spend your time playing old man’s music – I didn’t mean nothing by it..
Well the thing is – I had recorded this medley before and it was rather slow, so I recorded a faster take in August. The rhythm turned out okay, but with my previous sound system it was heard to discern the vocal part. Having tried to solve being inaudible I recorded a more rudimentary take with fingerstyle.
Now you have to tell me the following:
- How do the rhythmic solutions work out and which do you prefer? (don’t compare it to Elvis’ work, as I don’t want an impersonation or imitation – just tell me what you like)
- Are the vocal parts audible on both takes (or not)?
Have a nice day TCB-babies (term of endearment)!
The decision is yours – you have to decide!

Re: How do you rate my different takes of Mystery Train - Tiger Man?
Well, to my ears both versions are great music indeed.
Both are worth it to listen to. So I can't tell you which one I would prefer:'(
They are on the same level for me.
I understood the vocal parts in both versions.
To summarize it:
I really like both versions. I can't decide which could be my favourite.
And GREAT WORK (y) man, great work.
