A couple of years ago I recorded a cover of my favorite Men at Work song "Overkill" and have since played it many times live. Sadly, Men at Work's Greg Ham has passed away at the age of 58. Today I recorded an acoustic version of the song in tribute to a wonderful musician.

thanks JJ.... the best way to honour/remember musicians is to play their songs....
I love the even count 1-2-3-4-5 bounce of that first bar of the verse as it rises..... "I can't get to sleep"... fits so well..
great song .I've always liked that one...

Thanks a lot guys. I'm glad you enjoyed it; It seemed like a good way to spend my lunch hour.
I recorded the main acoustic and vocals live with a large diaphragm condenser on the guitar and my new SM7 on the vocals and then overdubbed a Nashville tuned acoustic and lead part afterwards.
