i stopped listening after you failed to include the part where you hold the strings and slide your hand down the neck of the guitar after you first say "you gave your love to me softly".  not sure what that's called but it sounds like this:

"WEEEEEWWWWWWWHHHhhhhheeewwwwwwwwww"

also, vocals don't sound too appealing

Hah I know what you're talking about. My bad. Thanks for the feedback though

Vocals are rough, I would try just attacking the living crap out of your voice cause the softness isnt doing it but the guitars and drums sounded good. If you play this live I would be jumping around so Keep it up!

I think you should try and work on your vocals a bit, add bass guitar because it'll make it sound a lot better overall and try and use a better snare drum. The guitar is good though and the drums fit well.

there's a lot to improve upon here.

First, when you are singing, you sound bored, like it's the last thing on earth you want to do.  If you are having trouble singing full out in that key, change the key of the song to better fit your voice.

You are missing all the cool fills, and little yells that rivers does, like before the solo. Def add the guitar slide after the first "You gave your love..." part.

it sounds like everything was recorded from far away.  The guitars sound very quiet.  This could just be how you are recording them, or also just how you mix them.  The guitar playing sounded fine.  You changed up the solo a bit, but that's fine, it worked.

What'd you use to record this?

Yeah that's a tough key for me, probably should have used a capo and switched it up.

I also feel a little awkward singing at this stage and it was my first go at it in a long time, so I can understand why it wasn't good.

The thing is I'm 17 with no money to upgrade equipment. My snare drum is absolutely terrible, and I don't own a bass guitar. To record this I used GarageBand with a Blue brand microphone, except the drums I recorded on my iPhone, which is why it sounds bad. This is just what I could do with the materials provided.

Thanks for the feedback though, on my next cover I'll try to make these changes.

I bought one of these, and it works pretty well with Garage Band: http://www.amazon.com/Alesis-GuitarLink-AudioLink-Series-4-inch-/dp...

There are several different kinds, so find something similar that will work for you.

As far as drums go, you should have used the Blue Mic.  If you have a laptop, take it to the drums and record using the Blue Mic.  You can also digitally build the drums.  For example, record several different styles of hits from each drum and symbol, then build the drum tracks yourself in Garage Band.  It's kind of like creating your own digital instrument, and then just loop sections.

next, for bass.  you have garage band, so you have a digital bass built into the program. And, if you buy that cable I showed you, you can fake a bass with your guitar.

you're always playing a wrong chord on the "on and on and on" part.

it should be:

D             E               A                  D      

still your bijan lingers on and on and on

A                  E                   A

You gave your love to me softly

Put more soul in your singing.
