“The Carpenter” is one of those very early Nightwish songs that I cannot stop loving, even though I'm way more into the late band's stuff (starting from “Nemo”). Still, it's a very nice song... maybe too simple, maybe naive, maybe poorly recorded and produced, but I still find it very appealing somehow. I'm not going to say it was hard to learn and play, but “The Carpenter” definitely has its moments :)

It's one of those songs literally everybody knows, an anthem of 80's new wave generation! Unfortunately, it has never had any bass line (except for a low keyboards part) so I had to come up with my own part which (as I dare to hope) doesn't suck. Enjoy!

Guilty, I love Babymetal, I love this band very very much and seriously think it's a prefect modern metal project which generally leaves any other modern metal bands far behind. So far Babymetal has released 2 albums and I can't name even one single song from them that wouldn't be very good. The new singles “Distortion” and “Starlight” (R.I.P. Mikio Fujioka) are great too, so I assume these guys just cannot make bad or boring songs. Anyway, I've always wanted to make a Babymetal song...

Another tribute to my childhood? Definitely :) The first W.A.S.P. record was one of the first rock albums I've heard back when I was 13 or 14 years old. I didn't know anything about the band back then, but the songs were so raw and awesome that I couldn't stop listening to them! “I Wanna Be Somebody”, “L.O.V.E. Machine”, “Sleeping In The Fire”, “On Your Knees”... basically the whole album was a charger full of deadly heavy metal bullets and I still listen to it once in a while....

It's time for one of my favorite KISS songs ever. Man, how I love it and its bass part! Crazy and raw KISS power melted together with the music genius of Bob Ezrin... Some might think it's a tribute to the fact that KISS is currently on their final tour and stuff, but no, it isn't since – guilty – I'm one of those die-hard fans who can't stand the current band's line-up and don't want to support it, no matter if they're lip-syncing or not. It's rather a new tribute to the favorite music of...

My Dying Bride is one of my most favorite bands when it comes to the doom/funeral metal. Actually this band has a weird influence on me – I actually listen to it when I feel sad and... suddenly I start feeling a lot better and even enthusiastic! Of course I've always wanted to play something by MDB and finally I chose the first song from their latest album “Feel The Misery” which I love dearly. Great album and the song “And My Father Left Forever” is one of its best jewels. Nice bass...

I know, I know, my last cover was published exactly 2 weeks ago and it's damn long time for me. I have no one to blame here, I just decided to do a cover for a song that happened to be quite hard... in both senses - heavy and hard to play :) I just wanted it to sound right or at least not sucky, so I had to work on it more than usual. I really hope to publish the cover this week though.

How about some good pop rock on this channel? Maroon 5 is clearly very far from my usual music choice, but I actually liked playing this song. There's something in its bass part that reminds me of the classic pop music era of 70's. The Jackson Five maybe?

Eric Carr has managed to record a fair amount of demos in 80's and some of those songs were truly great or at least had some decent potential. For example “Can You Feel It” or “Somebody's Waiting” are so awesome... I mean I can easily imagine the first one to be recorded by DEF LEPPARD or a similar 80's band. Well, it wasn't destined to become the reality and here's my little tribute to this cool song and of course Eric, one the best drummers in the world ever. I had to write my own...

That's an awesome song by Porcupine Tree! No, I'm not a fan (at least yet), but when I heard this one for the very first time two weeks ago, I knew right away I had to do a cover. The part is not 100% authentic, but pretty close, though I believe my bass tone could be less “heavy”... oh well, I still like it :)
