My Recorded Cover Songs – Snowblind

February 25th, 2012 . by Alexander Fisher


P1010601_thumb1I posted Snowblind, originally by Black Sabbath, a few months ago. It was not completely finished back then but I decided to upload it anyway. I had another project going and I was afraid I wouldn’t get done with it. The song first appears on Black Sabbath’s “Vol 4”  album which in my opinion is their best record. I had said I was going to record Snowblind some time ago to someone, somewhere. I wasn’t sure if I’d manage to get it done, but I finally did.

If there is one thing I regret in recording this song, is using the the same key that Black Sabbath played it in. My fingertips are intact and I think my vocals could have benefitted from a step or two higher in pitch. Also I used my Stratocaster. Tony Iommi used a Gibson SG guitar, which I think has a much fatter sound. My Strat has a humbucker pickup like an SG, but I still think the sound is slightly thinner. Some other things I notice I just decided to live with, making the American Idol excuse that I’m making it my own. I love that.
