Jurstday Thursday – Justin covers Weezer’s only in dreams

January 12th, 2012 by justin

I have always been a big fan of Weezer.  I got a lot of ridicule for liking this band, but whatever.  Good songs!

So, after a discussion with David Misung Stevenson, I decided to try and cover one of their songs.

Not too bad.  I decided I would force myself to do it in ABLETON LIVE so I could learn not only how to record, but also how to build a song in the layout section.

There are still a number of flubs here and there.  I have no idea where the drums get their random cymbals from, but I will figure this software OUT!

It blows my mind how intuitive Ableton Live is…just the learning curve is as flat as Mount Fuji!  IRONY! betch!

Without further ado

Justin DiCenzo – Weezer’s Only in Dreams

Here’s my disastrous attempt at covering Weezer’s ONLY IN DREAMS…a very short ONLY IN DREAMS

Right now we are just practicing for the plethora of concerts coming up in the next few months. Justin might return to the STL to play in September or he might be going on a world tour with his band in LA. Only time will tell.
