So, I need to arrange this stuff finally.

The Meaning Of Life (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QucAm1nY1Ks)
You're Gonna Go Far, Kid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7quuJmYiZEo)
No Brakes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESsdFFNw76s)
Me & My Old Lady (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rJjpiEjqfY)

What are these, you might ask? Well, they are my acoustic takes of Offspring songs. The sound quality sucks donkey balls, and my voice is not one of the greatest, but for some reason, some people here like it. Hehe, so, if you are interested, just click.

Not bad at all. I like oh ya part. Also I like how the these words and WHoo YA

it makes me want to play my guitar right now but i just took a shower and dont want to ruin my fret fingers.:D I think i may study this song from my book and see wat happens.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah I also like the "oh yeah" part :p

Yeah, I like it! The rhythm is cool. I did an acoustic version a couple of years ago (I won't ruin your thread by posting it here), so I guess it's song that makes you just want to unplug your guitar and play. My favorite part is what I guess you'd call the "breakdown," if you know what I mean.

Thanks. I like the idea of taking a really fast, punkish Offspring song and making it slow and acoustic. Because making an acoustic version of a song which is already slow like Gone Away or Dirty Magic, that is not that much of a challenge for me. I was thinking I would do Da Hui, So Alone, or maybe even Hammerhead later.

I like it too!! It's cool to hear speedy offspring songs slower, even though Im tempted to sing along fast (and this is one of my fave offspring songs from my fave album). I also like "oh yeah" part, its kinda sweet!

If you've done any other ones, would be cool to listen.

Thank you ;) I was trying to record some more today, but stuff is messed up with my sound recorder. Maybe later:p

but you done a great job, well done. it sounds great.

Holy shit, that sound awesome! Let's put it together and establish a trademark band from Slovakia :D

A Slovak revival band? Yes indeed :D

Nice job; i wouldn't have thought this song would have worked as an acoustic track, but it does. This makes me want an Offspring acoustic album.

WOW, I like it, Really good :)

Hey, it's really nice... Maybe you could make it in mp3 version, co? And send to me :P I would like to listen to it in my mp3 player ;) Nice. I like covers of Off songs.

dff_punk
06-10-2008, 04:49 AM
I have an mp3 on my laptop, which doesn't work at the moment. Maybe later, I'm planning to do more covers when the laptop's fixed, I also record songs through it.

Bumping cuz I added Youre Gonna Go Far Kid acoustic.... enjoy(if it is any good)! :)

P.s.: I cannot change the name of the thread for some reason...

Good job mate! I like the rhythm of YGGF,K. Sounds a bit like country music. The Offspring should do an acoustic country-style album of their songs:)
(I know this is a stupid cliche, but I expected your voice to be more slovakian... where is the accent?:rolleyes:)

dff_punk
07-08-2008, 09:49 AM
Cornbread Red already did a bluegrass tribute to The Offspring:p
Yeah, I intended to sound a little bit country-ish, just for fun :) I kinda lost my accent somewhere, by listening to too many english bands, watching too many english tv shows, and posting on too many english BBS-es.

YGGFK sounds great and funny because it's like an epic tale (can't find a good word... you know, like many power metal slow anthems like this one (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=BjgdBPGdL7E)) mixed with country-ish "Dance, fucker dance" parts and choruses. Haha :D

You're voice is... well, nice. I like it a lot! :D
I demand more songs!

I like it. I like that your voice has kind of a raspy countryish sound to it. It really changes the feel of the song. You should sing from the diaphragm. You have a nice voice, but not much backbone. Or maybe the guitar is just too loud. But it's a very cool interpretation. :)

dff_punk
07-08-2008, 06:16 PM
diaphragm love it 58 up, 34 down hate it

A circular device usually made of rubber placed in a womens vagina to cover the clevis. It is used during sexual intercourse to protect her from getting the males sperm inside of her

omg, do you really want me to sing from that?

p.s.: thank you to everyone´s positive reactions :)

dff_punk, this is really great! You know how to play, and your voice isn't bad - it's cool! Five stars to every ones (on youtube). Meaning of Life and No Brakes is really cool. So is YGGFK, but I think 'm gonna listen more to the others, I guess.



Thanks. I like the idea of taking a really fast, punkish Offspring song and making it slow and acoustic.

Yeah, that is very nice! One guy on youtube made an meaning of life acoustic cover, really slow, really cool.



Good job mate! I like the rhythm of YGGF,K. Sounds a bit like country music.

Yep, nice rhythm and sound.

More covers will be on the way sometimes :)

I was bored, and got this idea to make an acoustic version of a fast punk Offspring song. Might do more sometimes.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QucAm1nY1Ks

Audio only. And not that good sound quality, cannot do better. Enjoy..perhaps.
...and yeah my voice is not one of the greatest ;)

New! Youre Gonna Go Far Kid!

My voice sounds not too good at the beginning, but I hope then it is better ;)

Another new one, this time No Brakes. Watch and rate :)

Haha, cooool cover :D. Sounds kinda "Balalaika" style, if you know what is this traditional russian music instrument, you'll most likely agree with me :))).
Also acoustic Beheaded reminds of balalaika very much :)

Hey guys, I guess some of you remember this thread with my acoustic covers. I work primarily with my band Sustain, but just today I felt like recording an acoustic take on a brand new Sum 41 number called Skumfuk in the vein of my old acoustic ones with some twists, naturally. If anyone is interested in a crappy quality acoustic recording, check it out:

Be prepared for some news and stuff in the Sustain thread some time too!

The vocals sound a little muffled and quiet, but the playing/singing itself was good. Good job!
