Hi Guys,

I've been in a bit of cover tune mode over the past couple of months. I was surfing youtube and came across a lot of isolated vocal tracks posted up and a few which are favourite tunes of mine. I thought it would be a good challenge to see if I could cover all the instruments of these tracks and below are the results. They are all mainly keyboard based songs. I played all instruments on my keyboard apart from the guitars which were all me playing guitar (I'm a guitarist as well). All of it was played by ear so maybe not entirely accurate and has my own spin on things.

Heart - Alone: https://soundcloud.com/j-d-elliott/heart-alone-cover

Van Halen - Jump: https://soundcloud.com/j-d-elliott/van-halen-jump-cover

Genesis - Land of Confusion: https://soundcloud.com/j-d-elliott/land-of-confusion-cover

Not quite sure I got the Keyboard Solo on Jump entirely right but it was a good stab at it by ear :)

Hope you like, Justin.

Wow they are excellent! Big thumbs up from me :D I'm very impressed that you did them all by ear too, good work. Think I preferred the Van Halen cover to the original.

Hey Becky,

Thanks very much for listening, wow that's a nice compliment about my VH Jump cover, I didn't think I got close to the original with my version. I sort of took the live approach Eddie does where he plays rhythm guitar along with the keyboards so adds a bit of meat to the bone. Thanks again :)
