Good Friday to you! Welcome to today’s edition of The Laptop Sessions, and I bring you a great acoustic number from Smash Mouth.

The song is “Waste” from Smash Mouth’s album “Astro Lounge”. It is not a typical Smash Mouth song, and I think of the bands i’ve heard of they definitely have a unique sound. I always loved this song when it came up on the play list. “Fallen Horses” is a song i’d also like to do in a future Laptop Session, but that won’t be for a while.

I like this version a lot, and it goes along well with the album version.

I also hope you may get a chance to come see The Laptop Sessions crew live tomorrow at Testa’s restaurant in Southington, CT. We’re expecting a good crowd. I will be playing this song as one of my solo songs.

Stay tuned tomorrow for Jim’s next session, and again at Testa’s to hear us live!

Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, Jeff’s acoustic cover song music videos are no longer on YouTube, but we decided to keep his cover song blog posts up.  We figured these music blog entries would be good for posterity’s sake and because Jeff always gave such insightful posts each Session.  We hope to see Jeff’s impressive catalog of acoustic rock songs here on the Laptop Sessions cover songs and origianal music blog again in the future.  But, for now, please make sure to check-out hundreds of other acoustic cover songs from all of your favorite bands here on the Laptop Sessions music blog!

All right! We’re back! After an absence that seemed longer than it actually was, laptopsessions.com is back up and running. In the time the site was down, I was scheduled to post a video this past Sunday, and I did. The only way you’d have already seen it is if you were on Youtube and decided to search for Smash Mouth.

Well, I uploaded another cover from that band. From the same album “Astro Lounge” that I drew from earlier, I bring you “Fallen Horses”, a great song you may have never heard of. The original song has a really cool groove to it, and a great melody line that the guitar plays. I play it in the opening of the song, and then play the regular guitar part the rest of the way.

I already had received one positive comment on Youtube for this song, so I’ll let that speak for itself. I hope you enjoy this upload, and I also hope you’ll come back later today for Chris’ next video. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it three times as much as you normally would…
