365 DotU, Day 70 Swings and Misses the Seven Bridges Road

OK, you know how I said I wouldn’t be posting again this week because my computer’s power supply went toes up to the daisies? Well, I lied. You get one more, then I’m shutting up until Monday.

I’d really love to be able to say that today’s cover is epic and amazing, but it isn’t. I took on a song I really do like — “Seven Bridges Road” by the Eagles — and proceeded to ruin it rather a lot. I mean, I didn’t set out to ruin it. I thought I could do something that would work. Unfortunately, this is what you get.

The guitar simply sucks, and I while I sort of made the a capella bits work, I also had some intonation problems that I just couldn’t quite figure out how to fix. Bah. I think, perhaps, I may revisit this sometime in the future when I have a better notion of how to do it.


About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15 years or so), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've just finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. For now, I labor at a fairly interesting administrative job in order to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
