Heartbreaker (tempie cover)

Get Flash to see this player.

A cover of tempies song "Heartbreaker" (http://www.macjams.com/song/46271). We were both admiring of each others "breakup" country songs posted here. I asked tempie if I could have a go at a new vocal for his track. This is the result. I added the guitar solo at the end and all the vocals are mine. The original music tracks are as tempie recorded them apart from the end which I've had a bit of a play around with in terms of arrangement.
This was my first collaboration attempt of any sort and I'm very happy with it. It's been a learning experience, we've both seen how the other works and I've certainly had my eyes opened to the power of layered arrangements. I may be less inclined to just hammer out the song from here on!
Please enjoy.

Great approach
I think the approach that you took to the song is just great man, the phrasing and backups and guitar work...I think that your changes help realize what I had originally intended to be the emotional impact of the tune - the best heart break songs are narrated with a combination of disappointment, anger, and sadness and you've managed to convey that. I really like how defiant the solo is at the end - I think it really wraps things up. Thanks for liking the tune and wanting to sing it!

this is what I love about this place - people reaching across space and working together. Fine vocal work and nice lead work at the end.

Great Job done
on a great song. Way to dive right in. This whole place is a learning experience. The more you participate the more you learn. Nice job on your solo btw Paddy.

Like it.
I was just snooping around and I never noticed you did a Tempie cover. I'm jealous you got to see his tracks. his tunes are always boiling over with goodies.

You perform this song real well. Solid addition at the end with the guitar.
