Blur Covers

Post by blurvert » 27 Feb 2015, 12:55

A thread for any of you talented guys who have done a cover Blur song or have stumbled upon on on Youtube (there are some great ones out there, you should be proud) I don't have a musical bone in my body, but here is one I found. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vsngUCMVpo Kudos to this girl for being so quick to cover - great effort too x

My old group did some 8-bit covers with vocals:

I think Bonebag is one of Blur's most beautiful songs ruined by some pretty left field production ideas. After listening to the BBC recording of the song, I fell in love with it and haven't stopped listening to it this week. Decided to do my own take! Enjoy. :)

probably better than me to be honest
i can do a lot of blues based shit but graham's playing is very unorthodox, hard to learn by ear
i never would have been able to figure out that weird e chord in freakin' out without his instructional video

Is that the one with the weird electronic vocals? And the strange bit following the chorus? If so that is still the best thing in the world

Tong had the scariest job in the world, learning all those blur songs from scratch and then touring?!
NOT for the likes of you. Image

I have some covers, but they're ear-burstingly horrible.

The ones in this thread are great!

I've never had a problem with Tong, but he's never amazed me. Maybe I ought to give The Verve more of a listen... they're one Britpop band that really doesn't interest me, not sure why.
