Emb,
David is so right in what he says - all of us (well most of us) are singing because we can't have someone else do it for us, so don't be afraid to turn up the volume on your vocals, which were fine by the way. Guitar playing was nice and tight - your strumming is sharp and accurate. Not sure what would cause the distortion in GB, but it must be related to doing it on a phone cos I've never had it happen on a desktop.
Nice job - next time let's hear your voice more balanced with the guitar.
Neil

Thanks for the listen and the comments FourTwo.

One of my favourite songs too from one of my favourite albums ...
I totally understand Nosugrof's lovely description yet I like this arrangement a lot.
Did you play and sing together or separately?
The playing is good overall,  with some careful slow take-it-apart then put-it-back-together work you could iron out the wrinkles, muted notes etc.
I agree with others ... get your voice up and out!
Nice one.

Thanks lots Close2u. I played and sang separately. I've tried to sing and play this one at the same time but I can't keep the beat. I know there's some places that require work still, and it's been very helpful slowing it down and working on it that way. I'd like to be able to play and sing this one together so maybe I'll work on  small sections for that too.

I think your vocal works real well and nearly all is in tune - the actual tone is good too, so don't be shy with it- singsing is a lot confidence.

There's something funny with the guitar sometimes like you hit a tape wobble which is confusing me cos I don;'t know how ur doing it - I couldn't if I tried! (example at 2:05)

Rhythm is solid and overall it works real well :) J

Thanks for listening and commenting, Justin, your feedback is really appreciated! I don't know what is happening with the guitar wobble as you say, something funny on the recording that I couldn't figure out how to get rid of on the set up. Kontenda noted it too.

Hi Embishop.

It seems the video is no longer on soundcloud. Can you still access it?

Hi Barend, the link in my post still works for me (audio clip, not video). I find on SoundCloud that it still takes a couple seconds to play after I hit the play button. Maybe try giving it a couple seconds to start.

Does anyone know the strumming pattern for this, there's a few different ones out there on the net.  Closest I think is d u d u u u  dudu , as a mere beginner its a bit complicated when each stroke isn't numbered 1-4 or 1-8

I learned this one from a tutorial at https://www.kirbysguitarlessons.com/van-morrison-song-lyrics.html , if that's helpful to you at all.

Definitely agree you should turn up the vocals. They sound really good. I'm not the biggest van Morrison fan, but liked your version a lot.

Thank you @embishop and whomever resurrected this thread. Wow, just wow. I teleported into the mystic, which is not something I normally do this early in the morning. Very inspirational. I teared up a bit. Great cover, done right, true and yet unique.
