Cover Song Friday Vol.3

Its raining, its pouring, its cold out. I did what anyone of my age would? do, I topped off my cup of coffee and threw on some Alice In Chains. Now it being cover song Friday, I decided to search for a good cover rather than draw from my collection.
I have come to find, and no disrespect, but there really isnt that many good AIC covers.
Ryan Adams & The Cardinals did a decent cover of "Down In A Hole", then there was Stained and, no thank you.
I wanted a cover of "Nutshell". I found these two. I'm assuming unsigned musicians belting it out on Youtube.
This song has always been pretty personal to me, seems it is to a lot of people. These two artists made me feel like it was the first time I'd heard it..

Monicka Hove can be found here. and here. Here is her cover of "Nutshell"

Ive followed this guy around Youtube, I think he did some slide guitar tutorials.
Josh McELhannon or greezmunky111 can be found here and here.

Wax On Wednesday

Welcome to the first installment of Wax On Wednesday.
I can't promise you consistency but, I'll try.

You see, I have a large collection of music. Its on my computer, its on tape, cd, and most importantly to me...vinyl. Lp, record, wax...I love to spin the black circle.

My vinyl collection is a mix of now, then, obscure, and I bought it because the cover looked cool.
There is nothing like the warmness a record in good shape can produce. Digital is great and all but, my ears hear in analog not digital.

So here we go. Nirvana's Insecticide.

 I plan on uploading direct video and audio in the future. This will have to do for today.
