Leaving on a Jet Plane (covered on homemade instruments)

I'm not really sure where this idea came from, but I just started playing and it came together really quickly. I used my 3-string cigar box guitar, 2-string pizza paddle bass, and telephone mic. The robot drummer Max also helped.

Thanks BrianQ. I totally had Me First in mind when I did it. Good ear. I like the mic too.

Forgot to add, that lo-fi mic blends perfect with this!!

Kool, reminds me of the Me first and the gimme gimmes version!

Absolutely brilliant punked up version of a classic middle of the road song! Love it!

Comment by Poorness Studios on Sunday
It's definitely a "hat backwards" version AGP. :-)

Not quite how I remember John Denver playing and singing this one, I think I prefer your upbeat version, :-D

Comment by Poorness Studios on Sunday

Thanks Doug. I was going for John Denver meets The Ramones.

Comment by Doug Thorsvik on Sunday

A 1-finger, heavy metal rendition of a John Denver classic! What goes on in that mind of yours Kale? Creative and catchy! I enjoyed the change of pace!. Happy Sunday.
