When I received two Guest Sessions videos from two different performers — within two weeks of each other(!) — I simply couldn’t resist putting together a great two-fer Friday for you. For once, I’ll leave it entirely to Jeremy and Federico’s posts and videos below.
Happy Friday to one and all, and enjoy!
By Jeremy Hammond:
My cover of “Pigs on the Wing” Part I from Pink Floyd’s Animals album. A great acoustic song, I played it on my electric, just to mix it up a bit (and just to have an excuse to play my new Strat). Peace! Hope you like it.
By Federico Borluzzi:
Cover of the opening and the final song of Animals (Pink Floyd, 1977). I play the second part right after the first one. This was the first cover I uploaded on YouTube, so didn’t know the right places where I could put the camera… That’s why my face is almost hidden!
I was just playing around and worked out a fun little arrangement for this traditional song that everyone will recognize.
** EDITOR’S NOTE: **
I couldn’t resist picking this as our Guest Sessions featured video of the week. It’s a fun little song, and a fun little performance by one of our favorite contributors to the site.
We may know this popularly as the “Mexican Hat Dance,” but it is more formally known as “Jarabe tapatio.” It was first compiled in Guadalajaran music professor Jesus Gonzalez Rubio as a medley of Mexican folk music. It has since been honored by many as the national dance of Mexico.
This is your Guest Session electric cover song instrumental video. We hope you’ll enjoy it and hurry back next week for another great contribution!
