Welcome to your Saturday edition of The Laptop Sessions! I promised a hat trick of Pink Floyd Acoustic Cover videos, and today I deliver the third in my mini-series. This song is by request of our own Jim Fusco, but as I mentioned before this was in my potential song list for a while. Maybe by the end of our session-a-day project I will get to the 4th and 5th songs I was considering.
Today’s song is “Wish You Were Here” from the album of the same name. This is among the simpler songs to play, and the soft acoustic guitar riff that is constant in the song comes out nicely in this video. I did freestyle the lyric timing a bit here and there, but it works quite well in my opinion.
I hope you enjoy my last video before I go on vacation #2 of the summer. I will be doing my next two or more videos from our hotel room this upcoming week.
Oh, and as far as the homerun derby mentioned Wednesday…let’s just say my new sponsor is Hoover vacuums…because I sucked.
Stay tuned tomorrow to your Super Sunday edition where Jim will break out his latest and greatest acoustic cover song. See you then!
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!
