The music is nice but the video is a little creepy with all those versions of you floating around. Perhaps some countryside footage would fit better with the vibe of the song.

Thanks for the feedback. But this scenario will be used in my future Grantchester Meadows cover. :)

Cheers.

I thought it was great, the music and the video effects!

I liked that effect your did when you sang "I could dream" at 1:00

Is that an SX Precision Bass? I have heard a lot of good things about them.

It takes a lot of courage to post a cover like this on YouTube, and I thought it was awesome! [-D-]

The main concept of the whole thing was to put myself in the video as a band of one person.
And the details of Pink Floyd throught the song...
The swan in the up-right corner, the train in the bottom, the moon. But always the bass and guitars in the screen.
For me, the most beautiful thing in this song is the bassline. I wanted to keep it there all the time.

I really appreciate all you guys taking your time to watch and coming here to post a comment.
This is really helpful.

"Welcome2theMachine", I am using a Cort GB-74, it's an awesome bass. But the SX Precision is a great bass too, I like the fretless series. You won't buy a bad bass guitar. :)

Thank you for your kind words !

You definitely did the bassline justice. It perhaps would have been nice to have some of the drumming. Did you leave that out intentionally or is it that you don't play drums yourself and it would be against the one man band thing to get someone else to do it?

I play drums but do not have one yet.
I'm buying it this February. I just don't know how to play keyboards yet.
Drums here in Brazil is a very expensive instrument. As I live in an apartment, I have to buy electronic drums.
But the next video will have it, sure thing.
