Always Be My Baby

A song originally performed by Mariah Carey, covered by David Cook, who performed an amazing rendition on American Idol. He's indeed talented, but I felt that the younger David deserved to win 'cause he has a better voice. Heh. Anyway, the video quality's poor because the camera was somehow not focussed, and we were too lazy to do another take. But I guess we'll have to make do with what we have.

The song is played half a step down, which is the way David Cook performed it in his studio version. It's really hard to sing the bridge in standard tune anyway. Hope you guys enjoy it! :)

Sorry but the playing was a little messy with 2 guitars, the tempo changed a few times also. Should just stick to a guitar.. All the best!

I think David Cook deserves the title.. IMO *wink

It really peculiar to see Daniel using a pink pick :P

Nwei, kewl!! ;)
