Uhh yeah. I definitely see why most bands do not play the finger pick version. I tried to play against a Bob Segar version on Youtube, but I either couldn't hear the rhythm well enough, or he just keeps his own timing cos I kept drifting out too much. On goes the metronome
Mucked around with some volume swells; that's interesting to do on a Tele. Gotta channel some Roy Buchanan.

I think overall it's ok, but your vocals need to come up an octave. You should always sing in your higher voice instead of your lower voice. Mostly because you can get power out of a higher octave. Often people think they can't sing higher, but it's simply a lack of confidence. I know because I said the same thing for 2 years, and finally I pushed through. I'm not a great singer, but I'm definitely confident.
Well due to having a British mum and an American wife and step-son, my accent is not strongly kiwi. Not that a kiwi accent is strong like say an Australian accent anyway. But there was an article published recently saying that famous New Zealander musicians (and most globally) sing with an American accent as that's what you're used to hearing. Not that I'm famous or anything

I agree, I always liked that tune. As for the accent thing, it happens in most languages that the accent sort of disappears when you sing. We have the same thing w/ French Canadians who have a very noticeable accent for us for French people when they speak, but nary a trace of it when they sing.
