Change The World

<p><span style="font-size: small;">Farrell Jackson - acoustic guitar and vocal - live.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">An acoustic benefit concert in 2005.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">It was to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. The hurricane devastated New Orleans and this was my small part in raising $2000 to help them out. My son inlaw asked me to perform a half hour set and I was more than eager to do it...every little bit counted.&nbsp;I was one of several performers that evening and Change The World&nbsp;is one of the songs I chose to&nbsp;include in the set. It seemed appropriate to me but it was the only cover song I did that evening....the rest were mine.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">It's&nbsp;a bare bones, unplugged performance. No mics, amps or sound system to help out or in my case, to hide behind :o)&nbsp;&nbsp; I'm used to having those things so it was a bit un-nerving not having my crutches when standing on stage infront of the audience...all by myself. But they were a good crowd and I survived, lol.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">My performance was captured on a Fostex VF160 with two Rode NTK tube mics placed left and right, at stage front. These are very sensitive mics and you'll hear they picked up the old wooden stage creaks quite well as I moved around. You'll&nbsp;also hear the sound move slightly&nbsp;left or right depending on the direction I was facing.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Since this is a cover, I've purchased the HFA License #1121936736 to post it legally.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">I hope you enjoy&nbsp;my stripped down version of Change The World!</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Farrell Jackson</span></p>
