Description
There were so many great songs and performers here whose work I would have liked to do a version of, but tell the truth I don't have the accomplishment most of them have 'technically', so I went for a song nearer to what I think I do best..... a bad salad...er...I mean a sad ballad.... though it's not all that sad; just emotional.
It's a song I'd DL'd a couple of years ago by Gail (Gail60), who hasn't posted in quite a while, due to life's needs etc., but it's a lovely song she sang and performed beautifully at the piano. I didn't sing her lovely harmonies, but instead used Cello and Electric Piano as a backing harmony/accompaniment.
There are only three tracks, as I sang and played guitar on one track, one take, with a track each for the Cello and the electric Piano. I could never compete with the original here http://www.macjams.com/song/66841 'I'll Always Love You', by Gail60, but here is my version.....hope you like.............Artwork by me using the mouse in 'Pixelmator'.

Lyrics
I'll always love you
No matter where you are
and I'm thinking of you
whether near or far
Doesn't even matter
the time of any day
You're in my heart forever to stay

I made a promise
and this I know is true
I can't help but wonder
how I'd make it without you
You are my love
You are my heart and
I pray we'll never be apart

Others may tell me
that this is just a dream
that nothing's forever
and nothing's as it seems
But I'd have to tell them
that this dream is real
I'll love you forever still

I'll always love you
no matter where you are
and I'm thinking of you
whether near or far
No it doesn’t matter
any time of day
You're in my heart forever to stay

I remember the song
and you've done a great job giving it a new life! Your voice holds so much character it truly gives it the bad salad (LOL) feel! Anguish and pain come through as well happiness.

Your opening paragraph strikes me strongly because I too feel that I'm a hacker. I mean musically. I don't play any instrument well and I certainly sing like a goat in heat. Yet with all the tools available now days I am sometimes able to tone down my screeching and wailing into something that sort of resembles singing. What I can't play I practice and try again then if I still fail I resort to electronic fixes. I'm not too proud to admit that I've fixed a few notes here and there out of dire need.

Very nicely done Maurice!

Nice job. Finding the song to cover that fits your talents and allows you to bring back a great song from our MJ past is what this is all about. I really miss Gail, thanks for doing this one.

Now this is NOT a bad salad and you are very good and quite accomplished at what you do ... and yes, you do have a knack for doing these emotional salads I mean ballads and you have created a wonderful version here Maurice .... love the gentle falsetto at the end. Enjoyed this very much ...

Well Stan,
I try my best and seem to just scrape through most of the time and I'm very pleased you think this one passes the test..... at one time when younger, that falsetto would have lasted another two minutes, so I'm glad you mentioned that..... thanks for the listen, regards M

I'll Always Love You (MJCC2013)
I first went back to check out Gail's original. Lovely tune and her piano accompanied original is wonderful.

Great choice! I agree it suits you quite well and I know this will slide in nicely with the rest of your catalogue. There's a lot of character in your vocal. Some real emotion in there and a very clear recording. Great accompaniment on the guitar. The electric piano and cello fill out the arrangement nicely. Very well done!

Thanks Andrew,
Just hope you weren't too disappointed after hearing Gail's wonderful version. I agree, it is MY kind of song and I thoroughly enjoyed playing/ singing it, though the piano and cello have been altered with the pencil tools so many times, I can't begin to count Ha ha, cheers M

A lovely, gentle, interpretation, Maurice. Your vocals are perfect for this style of song and you have produced a wonderfully sympathetic arrangement. Much kudos for the one take guitar/vocal track. A fine post. I will definitely check out Gail's original version. Thanks, Peter.

Thanks Peter
for the much appreciated compliments. I do find that I sing better when playing at the same time, for some reason; the thing for me is getting the voice and mic' balanced right. You WILL love Gail's track I'm sure, regards M

love this song whether it is Gail or yourself singing. Suits you, Maurice. I'll bet, when you were younger, you didn't appreciate the 2 minutes longer. This didn't need it. Thanks.

Thanks Char...
I'm glad you liked my version of this lovely song as well....I hadn't noticed there was a ONE minute difference LOL, but I just listened both again and since we both sang the same number of words I think my extra minute is down to the slower speed I sang it at...... thank God I didn't do an instrumental section (which I almost did) HaHa, regards M
