John Lennon – Mother (Bass + Vocal Cover)

Wow, my first cover video ever is live! I choose to do John Lennon’s, “Mother” for my first cover, as it’s really resonated with me recently. While I’ve been fortunate to have both of my parents growing up, I know that there are many others who have it much harder. If you’re one of those people, I’m terribly soryr. I can’t say I know what it’s like, but I could imagine how painful it must be.

Recording this video was a ton of fun. It took me about 20 minutes to get my cheap webcam and microphone in a position that made the bass guitar visible, while keeping myself close enough to my desk for the mic to pick up my bass and my voice. It wasn’t the easiest task, but I’ve managed. Kinda.

There are some noticeable latency issues in my early videos. I’ve tried to keep the audio and video in sync, but it’s proving to be rather difficult. I’m going to eventually end up investing in a better camera and microphone, which should make the quality of my videos shoot up drastically. I’m also looking to get a green screen, because let’s face it – my background is ugly. Not much I can do about it now unfortunately :/.

But there you have it – John Lennon’s Mother. If you haven’t already, please do me a favor and ‘like’ the video, and subscribe to my YouTube channel. Thank you so much!
