Computerwise:
Core i7 Sandybridge 3,4GHZ
16GB ram.

Softwarewise:
Windows 7 Home Premium
PreSonus Studio One.

Hardwarewise:
Sennheiser E825s.
M-Audio Fasttrack MK II
Beyerdynamic DT770PRO

Musical Instrumentwise:
Yamaha Tyros 1 (That`s my midi controller Laughing )
Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster.
Hofner Violinbass.
Martinez spanish guitar.

Its a very in-expensive setup actually, and the thing that gives you good recording quality is just a good Mic and a good Audio Interface, the rest is just the mixing/mastering/talent.

Thanks for saying that it sounds good, i`m still a learner, and i`m not even into the "good" stage of mixing/mastering, so this is a great compliment!

Great cover Brad. Congrats!
You're already a great singer, so I don't have many criticisms to make.
The only thing I'm gonna say is that you should try lowering the song's tune. You sounded a tiny bit strained on some parts. It didn't spoiled your cover by any means, don't get me wrong.
It would fit perfectly fine if it was a heavy rock and roll sound, but as an acoustic cover, I think it could have been a bit more relaxed.
Great work as always, anyway.

Thanks! You know, to be honest, i tried to downtune it do D, but it just didn`t seem to fit the song, and my vocals sounded kinda flat because of the downtuning..

The straining, well... I dunno, sometimes i strain on those higher notes, sometimes i can sing them with ease, it all depends on weither i have a good day or a bad day i guess..

thanks for your kind words man! And i should keep that in mind for the next song, to downtune it a few steps!
