I sing other peoples' songs sometimes too.

I feel like I've been sharing a lot of semi-motivational stuff lately so I thought I would just share music this week.

Me and a friend of mine, Stu, did some covers and we shared them on Youtube. On my Facebook page I did a vote where I asked what song I should cover and the winner was One Headlight by The Wallflowers. It's an interesting song because it feels like he wrote it as a poem first then wrote music to it after. There are fair amount of extra words that I, as a songwriter, would have chopped mercilessly.


Next up is Norwegian Wood by The Beatles. While we were doing One Headlight we decided to just do this one for fun. I always liked this song because the guy burns all the girls furniture after she leads him on for the evening. 


Well, that's it for this week. I hope you enjoy the songs. If you have a song you'd like Stu and I to cover let me know via twitter, facebook or in the comments below. 

Tucker, if you finish something you can start something new.

You know what's scary? Yeah that. Right ... that too. OK wait, let's start again. 

You know what I found scary a couple weeks ago? I was sitting in my basement with my friend Stu so we could record a cover of One Headlight by The Wallflowers. Why was it scary? I have no clue. I've spontaniously got up with my guitar and sang my songs in front of tens of people. I used to host my own open stage where I would learn a cover song for each one. Why was it so scary to sit in my own basement with a friend and sing a cover song? I answered that already ... I don't know. 

What I do know is that I was so nervous I almost called Stu and cancelled. I'm so glad I didn't 'cause now that it's done I'm free to move on to something new. I don't have the spectre of the unfinished hanging over me. It's hard to start something new when you are carrying around all your 'almosts' and your 'pretty soons'. 

Because that is behind me, this week I was free to start a new project. I'm calling it the Songwriter's Commentary Edition of my Born To The World EP. It started out like a commentary on a DVD but it's changed into something cooler and I think you're going to like it. I've finished the first track and I'm really happy with it so I should have them ready to share soon. 

Until then here is the thing I finished that let me move on to this next thing.
