This isn’t the first time that Tom Misch has covered Patrick Watson‘s “Man Like You.” Sometimes it’s a free flowing finger picking version. Other times the London pop rocker adds a little soulful flair with accentuated plucking and muting. His recent Colors Berlin performance is an improved rendition of the former with the addition of some guitar soloing and Tobie Tripp on violin.
Misch and Tripp masterfully loop their strings creating a soft, intricate and beautiful song. Halfway through the song, Misch’s bluesy soloing meshes perfectly with Tripp’s more folky violin playing. Watch the cover and listen to the original below.
