Photograph, Ed Sheeran / Cover by Clarissa

"Photograph" is a song by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, written with   with Snow Patrol member Johnny McDaid, who had a piano loop from which the composition developed.  With visually descriptive lyrics, it discusses a long-distance relationship inspired by Sheeran's own experience of being away from his then-girlfriend while he was on tour.

Love is a many splendored thing.
This song is dedicated to all peoples of our world, who needs hope, peace and love.

Heartily dedicated to a woman we dearly love, Happy Birthday Mimi!!!

Nice version of you two, Rene.

A suggestion that I think would improve your sound a bit more.
If you are able to individually process the vocals and guitar ,, the reverb on the guitar is perfect but a bit too much on the vocals. Having less reverb on her would put Clarissa more in front and add a warmth which I think would be appropriate for this song. 

If you can add a touch of compression I think that would help as well.

I think there may also be some compression happening. The background hiss is very prominent on this device I’m listening on and it goes up and down. I love the tone of both the voice and guitar. Nice version. Totally irrelevant but Ed Sheehan lives a few miles away from here and still visits the local pub, and as it’s a small village type pub, the locals pay no attention, he’s just a normal bloke.

HI audiokid,

I really appreciate this.

I will try to tweak my reverb, which is a room reverb effect from my Yamaha Mixer.

I also have a compressor on my UAD digital converter, and I will add bait.

Thank you.

Rene
