By Jeff Copperthite:
Happy fantastic Friday to you! It’s Jeff Copperthite with – yet again – another new band. That’s twice this week! It must be an unofficial “new bands” week here at laptopsessions.com.
While today the band isn’t “new” person-wise to the sessions, it still counts. The band is three members of the Byrds Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, and Chris Hillman. I am covering their song “Long Long Time” from their self-titled 1979 album. It is a short and sweet song. Very easy to play, very easy to bop your head too.
I first heard of this trio thanks to (who else) Jim Fusco. He played a song from this band on our very first show to our better halves called “BSYNHO”, which stands for “Best Show You’ve Never Heard of”. We even sound it out. I’ve been digging into these shows the past few months or so for songs I can cover. I’m at the point where i’ve covered most of my favorite songs, so now I have to dig a little deeper to make it through the final 5+ months of Laptop-Session-a-day. Glad I found this one, and I hope you are too.
Stay tuned this weekend for the next acoustic cover song by Jim Fusco. He never waits a long long time between his videos!
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!
