Laserdance – Powerrun, Cover by Chris van Buren

This one was not easy, I had to learn chords I have never seen before. Recreating a track like this “by ear” can get a bit complicated. Remember, I can’t read notes and there are no midi-files or sheetmusic available anyway, but it worked out pretty good.

  5. NIce cover Chris, however i have noticed that some notes at the end of some
    cords are incorrect and makes the track sound off tune!

  7. Hi Zimmermouse, I think you are right. While I was making this cover I
    noticed it was nearly impossible to play that combination of cords live. So
    I looked at the powerrun cover of This Piepie guy and looked how he played
    this cords and I have changed them accordingly. Later on I noticed this to
    sound off-tune on my car speakers, but they sound right on my monitors and
    headphones. So I decided to leave it this way.

  16. Klopt, het blijft uitproberen en vergelijken. Akkoordenschema’s, noten etc
    zijn niet bekend, laat staan dat er midi bestanden van bestaan. Niet dat ik
    überhaupt noten kan lezen… Zeker de eerste video’s zijn muziekaal gezien
    niet in orde. Ik doe maar wat, maar leer nog iedere keer wat bij.

  20. Das klingt echt Hammer geil !

  21. On 0:20 (and after in same places) is not correct! Minor, but major is
    needed. Only one sad mistake, that spoiled all song. Please, listen
    original, and redo.
    All other your videos are better, than original! It’s amazing! With regards
    and respect to you.

  25. I thought that only guitar guys like to give “perfection” comments. I am 40
    yo man who grew up on Koto, Laserdance and Italo and this is perfect to me.
    Every single musician makes mistakes and it is totaly unimportant. I enjoy
    all of your tracks I hear here..subbed.. keep up. Tommy from Croatia

  39. Can I ask you? Since I plan to mess with synth myself in future, where do
    you create that sounds wich you use for space synth? Do you use some vst
    software or do you create in inside one of your keyboards? Also, youd you
    recomend me some nice budget 61 key (be it workstation or arranger)
    .Heck..I am not sure what is the difference anyway 🙂

  44. Hey +Tommy H, You can take a look at this site for some explanation about
    the sounds of Spacesynth:
    http://www.spacesynth.net/Article/Tutorial4-SoundOfThe80s

    I myself use both hardware- and software synths, and I also use some
    sampled sounds in Logic. You can use a simple midi controller keyboard in
    combination with a DAW/computer or you can spend some money on hardware
    synths, that is up to you. Most classic synths are available as a VSTi
    plugin nowadays, so that is the cheapest way to go. On the other hand, a
    nice (virtual-)analog synthesizer can bring you joy and inspiration.
    Good luck 🙂

  57. I like your laser dance covers very much. when i was young that was our
    sound in the clubs. i still have the vinyl from these songs. the humanoid
    invasion cover is very good. here on power run the chords are not right.
    However, the synthi sound is very close to the original. in the 80’s these
    kinds of instruments you could’nt pay 🙁
