Alejandro (Acoustic) - Lady Gaga Ft. Joshua Salles

So this is a little bit different to my usual blog posts, but it’s something I wanted to put on here in case anybody wants to listen / download it. There’s an acoustic cover of Lady Gaga’s Alejandro on YouTube that I have always admired, by an unsigned guitarist called Joshua Calles. It currently has over 58,000 views on YouTube alone and I bet that I’ve made up at least 50,000 of them!

Anyway, the acapella for the original track by Lady Gaga has recently leaked so I decided to mix both songs together for my own personal collection, and also to experiment a bit with Garage Band for the first time. Nothing fancy, but a few of my Little Monster friends & couple of GDC-ers liked it so thought I’d put it up here in case anyone wants to listen. It is a truly beautiful guitar interpretation by Calles (the solo at the end... wow).

Here it is:

Credit where credit is definitely due: I do not own any of this music, nor did I make the album cover. Here’s a link to the original instrumental and you can find the voice track on GagaMedia.net. The album art is on Coverlandia, all I did was add text and mix all the music together!

My next “proper” post will be finished soon, finally! It’s another lyric piece I’ve been working on for months called ‘This Every Second’. I’m really happy with it, as the title is something I’ve had floating around my writing since I was 15. Nothing I wrote felt like it really fit until now. It’s so satisfying to finally give it the justice it deserves!

That’s all for now. Enjoy! Or not, haha. :)

Mama Monster herself would be proud. Great work :)

I read all your lyric postings by the way, but always feel stupid commenting. Just thought I'd say you have a fan

I love Heavy Metal Lover! The 'I could be your girl, girl....' part is my favorite part of the song, it's beautiful :wub:

Same! Love how the rest of the song is quite hard, confident & aggressive, then all of a sudden this honest, innocent question peaks out of the chorus. It drags the song back into reality. The first time I heard that properly I fell in love with Gaga even more. :)
