Welcome to Thumpin’ Thursday! My first as a 29 year old.
I decided tonight, after much deliberation, that I would record a song from a band that has seen plenty of exposure on this site. That band of course is Pearl Jam.
My friend Marc from high school had introduced me to most of the songs by Pearl Jam from their first two albums. Him and his brother were huge fans and had even saw them in concert. I found out my own brother was also a fan and let me listen to “Ten”. I loved it and it set me off on a Pearl Jam kick that I think i’m still on – at least for the albums I have currently.
The song I have chosen is the last track from their 2nd album “Vs.” The best of these songs are ones that I wouldn’t want to play on acoustic guitar. Even this one is meant for a softer electric guitar, but still works. “Indifference” is the name of the song. I’m not positive that I performed this song to the best I could. But the nice thing is the people who would watch this either a) know the song, or b) are frequent visitors to this site and love what we do.
It’s business as usual on my end. Still setting stuff up, and still teaching 4 classes instead of 3. And while I love the extra money it’s bringing in, I will be looking forward to the 1 1/2 weeks off i’m going to take at some point next month.
Enjoy this song and keep checking back for more songs from the three and only – Chris, Jim, and I!
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 original 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!
