Ok folks I have decided to put this thread up so all of you guys who are musically gifted can make a stab at an ELO classic. Please remember to be nice to all who participate here as it takes some guts to put your tones onto tape! I am intrigued to hear what you beautiful talented people can come up with and after hearing Helmuts version of "Summer and Lightning" it inspired me to have a go! I am not the most technically advanced individual "in fact I'm shocking" so my upload will probably take time! Anyway! Here is my version of Strange Magic!
Well said, jefflynnenut! Being so many people on the forum that claim to play instruments, I was expecting to unchain some kind of domino effect with my version of "Summer and Lightning", but nothing happened. I'm glad to know that finally someone felt encouraged to make a cover.
I will have a listen to your version of "Strange Magic"... when you actually post it.
PS: I will make a stab at "Can't get it out of my head"... or, more reallistically, stab it.
Shit, man, you are a pro! Congratulations! Fantastic cover all the way. Excellent vocals (didn't you say you weren't a good singer?). Makes me regret my decision of uploading that S&L version.
BTW, your recording equipment must be quite good, isn't it? It all sounds so clear...
Hey don't ever knock yourself! There are plent of horrible people around to do that for you! Your version of Summer is class! and hey that track was recorded on my phone hanging from the top of my upright piano! Bahahahaha!
elophile: OH, Yes! Will you take a little sip when no one is looking?

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
