Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

🎸🔆Hello Everyone!🧣🌲

This months topic comes from Simira.

"How about the Beatles and Beyond.  Any songs from the Beatles, Lennon, McCartney or Harrison?"  
We forgot Ringo, we can play any of his songs too! Thank you @Popeye👍

This topic is pretty wide but if you can not find anything to suit you could post a song from the 60s decade.

1) Wim VD1 playing "Blackbird "

 

2) NeilS335 playing "Till There Was You"

3) Watson43 playing "Paperback Writer"

4) Simira playing "Hey Jude"

What a coincidence. Yesterday I recorded this Beatles song from the L&M Fingerstyle course that I had been working on for some weeks.

I heard McCartney say in an interview that they wanted to sound like Bach in this one 😀.

Wim.

@Wim VD1 Well done Wim, great job as usual.  The birdy tweets were a nice touch, it made me smile😊 You are really powering through the fingerstyle course and becoming a fingerstyle Ninja:ph34r:

That was excellent @Wim VD1 superbly played as always with you. I enjoyed the bird sounds too, blackbirds are one of my favourite garden birds.

Greetings friends; Another happy co-incidence... I happened to be working on a tune who's best known recording is by The Beatles! 

My rendition of "Till There Was You"
Till There Was You, sung by Paul McCartney on the With The Beatles album, was written by Meredith Willson for 1957 musical The Music Man. It also appeared in the 1962 film of the same name. McCartney, however, heard the song through Peggy Lee's 1958 version.

I always loved this song, first hearing it when I was a kid back in 1963, on my transistor radio!

I played both the Rhythm and Melody tracks recorded directly to my DAW (Reaper 6.0, basically clean, very little effects) using my  Godin 5th Ave Kingpin archtop (p90).

I hope you enjoy listening 🙂 It was fun (and challenging) to do.

Neil- Excellent playing of rhythm and melody on this song. The smooth timing and melding of lead and rhythm was well done. Nice clean crisp recording. Great job!

Very nice Neil. The rhythm comping was sweetly jazz-like and the lead, smooth, clear and very cleanly played. A great contribution to the challenge!

Thanks for listening and for your kind words, @Simira, @gotto, @NeilES335, @Nutty 1, @pkotof, @Popeye, @WATSON43.

While searching for the suitable bird sound, I now learned the difference between the sound of a red-winged and a regular blackbird 🎵. Learning all I can 😎.

Wim.

It's amazing what the Beatles could do with two chords and a riff.  They performed this song in the key of G but that's too high for me to sing, so I did it in E.  I'm not entirely happy with the vocal mix but I couldn't spend any more time on it.  Thanks for listening.
