Element Acoustica

After watching the countless Youtube covers of people with acoustic guitars, I can only conclude one thing: most people do acoustic covers because it makes them look artsy and cool with minimal guitar skills. Armed with a few chords and a mediocre voice, you could probably get a few hundred to a few thousand views per video on some crappy Lady Gaga cover you devised using only four chords.

Saying that, acoustic versions of songs CAN be quite beautiful things. Here are five that I really, really like:

Band of Skulls - Fires

Sam Isaac - Come Back Home Tonight (with Tellison)

Tellison - Edith Wharton

Tubelord - A Thing For Me (Metronomy cover)

Fran & Josh - Better Left Alone (Alice Deejay cover)

Signing out

Over and out
