  • Ah! Leah! - Donnie Iris and the Cruisers One Take Cover, All Instruments

    3:59

    In August of 2012, I recorded my vocal and guitar cover of Ah Leah. The most common comment on that video was that I should add backing tracks, or a band. I wanted to demonstrate the J-Type bass that I built. So, I decided to play along with that video and do a 'one man band' cover. The guitar and bass parts are done in a single take. I don't have access to a drum kit, so I constructed a midi drum kit in Reaper, out of live drum samples, and programmed it.
    Here I have documented the build of the bass.

    Donnie Iris - Ah! Leah! - cover - Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy

    When Donnie Iris set out to write his hit “Ah! Leah! with keyboardist Mark Avsec, the duo’s intention was to write an anti-war song. What they ended up with instead was a love song that went on to become Iris’s signature song.

    Have any of you songwriters ever attempted to write a song where the final result ended up being the complete opposite of what you had intended? Share with me in the comments!

    Iris had initially wanted the tune to have a hook or chorus that sounded like a Gregorian chant but while writing the song Avsec somehow came up with the chant ah, Leah which they both liked.

    The song was released as a single back in 1980 and became a Top 10 hit in Canada while reaching number 22 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

    I hope you enjoy my take on the tune!
