My Dear Lady (Feter Cover)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I always loved this song from the first time I heard it in the Coffee House thing. It really said so much to me, and I always thought one day I’d take a hack at it. Sorry Feter, today I hacked at it. I hacked the vocals, the bass and the vibraslap. Thursday night I have singing lessons scheduled. My dear wife bought them for me as a Christmas present. You can tell how much I love to sing, as it’s been 6 months and she finally made the appointment seeing that I wouldn’t embarrass myself by calling the teacher. I’ll try to document the progress. 4 lessons each Thursday after work. If I sound excited, it’s because I didn’t notice the caps lock was on.... If someone would’ve just offered to sing one of my songs in the last 4 years this would’ve never happened. Thanks MacJams.

Here is Feter's original

Lyrics
Oh dear my sweet
can’t you look at us?
all just in a poem
love and clear

can’t you see the bright light
and everything there sing-
Our Home !


oh dear my lady
won’t you sit near
listen to my poem
all just for you

can’t you see the bright light
and everything there sing

Our home!

Oh dear my love
I just want you
you are the best - happiest
lady on the earth
I care for you
you care for me

can’t you see the bright light
and everything there sing
Our home!

If lessons don't help, I'll ask for a refund!

I told my wife, nothing says, 'I love you' better than 'I bought you singing lessons for Christmas'!

Thanks Mark

Electro Feter
To me, 2 layers of bad vocals sounds better than one puny vocal track with bad effects, so, that's what I tend to do. Then I bury them beneath as much noise as possible. 2 layers of lead/rhythm bass with the RATT pedal, a clean bassline with a slight flange and a couple of fuzzy wah wah clav tracks to satisfy my synthetic needs.

Thanks for the listen

I like your voice as it stands but am really looking forward to hearing you sing an aria.
They broke the mold with you Bob. Downloaded. Thanks.

That was fun!
Your bass track had me thinking "Primus" for some reason. The few tracks I've heard from them have the same bass-bouncing "damn we're having fun!" feel to them :)
Nice track Bob, or should I call you Mr. Claypool, hehe!

And those singing lessons, really? You sound just fine on this.

Yeah man, I was having fun with this. The first time I played it was on my acoustic bass. I didn't like the sound of it, so I went back to the set up that you've seen. Black and scratchy and that meaty RATT pedal.

Singing lessons..... My poor teacher has no idea what she's in for.

Be Careful
with singing lessons. Your voice as it is takes your songs to the next level. I'm just scared they're going to make you sound like that dillhole from Nickelback.

ANYWAY, this is fun. I bet your special lady friend loves it. I'm sure Feter loves it. I know I do. I'm glad you were able to make time for this recording, what with how busy you've been lately.

Dillhole
Hey man,

Please don't worry about me - just because I'm taking singing lessons, doesn't mean I'll actually learn anything. Besides, I'd hate to abandon my sloppy singing style after all subjecting you to them for all these years. What kind of person would that make me?

It really sounds like one of yours, bringing cafeine to the coffee house. I really like the way you're not blasé about love, synth sounds and ratt pedals.

So when am i giving you your first singing lesson ?

Really have to go back to hear Feter's, which I assume is much different. Excellent vocals Bob. The bass is superbly superb, along with all the other little noises and sounds that occur throughout this tune.

seriously this is a spastically happy tune and I dig it.

I think you're special too.... you and all those GI Joes you have on the book shelf, next to the Atari Super Pong console and the Evil Knievel van that's propped up by your pristine Smash Up Derby cars still in the original box, your View Master, Slinkys, Silly Putty and every single Whammo product known to mankind!

This is a great take on this song. When I listened to Feter's original, I would not have imagined it could be in this style - great job!

five_extra_arms said 3285 days ago (June 27th, 2009)
Would Not Imagine
Thanks Harold. It's the only way I could approach his tune if I wanted to be honest. The very few covers I've done in my life kinda start out as a tongue in cheek approach, but once I do that, I get past that initial stage, I go back and try to fix what I completely ruined. The result is a version that I'm not ashamed to share with it's author!

The
only thing I hate worse than an untrained voice.......is a trained one. It would be impossible to explain to some one else how you want it sung...... For some reason I'm hearing a Janes Addiction Thing happening (with guest synth player) Shiny Happy Tune. Feter certainly deserves some honour.....Regards

Singing Lessons
My teacher is just the greatest teacher you ever wanna meet, so I am actually enjoying it. I've compared my expectations to those of my 1978 VW Bus - There's no AC, but if you roll down the windows in the summer, it's much more bearable. If you change the oil regularly, it'll run better. I think it's gonna help me run better and be more comfortable in the summer.

I guess you know -
Strong Modest Mouse sound here, I always kind of admired the guy's style - I couldn't do it. Kind of a Jane's Addiction sound too, or a band from Australia you probably have not heard called "RatCat". If you like Surf/Punk you should really check out RatCat. I'll send you a link to quicken the search for you if I can find one. I had a buddy from Australia and he turned me on to RatCat, and you know, it's always fun to share.

As for the vocal lessons, no reason you shouldn't keep at it! I'd def like to hear more from you on the mic. Song is short but cool. The instrumentation is wild (good).
