Nice one Bala! Sounds like you've been practicing your posh Scouse accent  ;) Another really great performance.  I'm actually having a Beatles flavoured day today as I just took delivery of a the remixed "White Album" - the demos a fascinating.

Thank you Birdland! :D After a million hours of Beatle documentaries, interviews, songs and everything else Beatles, the one thing I don’t think I’ve picked up right is the posh Scouse accent! :D but I’ll work on it ;)
I need to check it out. I’ve always loved the Beatle demos! :)



Haha good one CT! Thank you :)

Good work mate. I’ve been having a go at this on and off in my acoustic. If I get it in as good a shape as you have I’ll be pleased. You’ve really picked up on the Beatles vibe.

I usually play this on an acoustic too but somehow a clean electric sound was what I opted and it was fun to play it that way :) Thank you for the listen and comments Willsie! :)

Nice job Balla...

Liked this one and the vocals as I am a big Beatles fan.

Hey a tip for you. At the end your strumming hand was hitting the mic cord. A possible better way to set up your mic would be to invert it 180d and have it pointing down. You can have it at the same exact spot as that seems to work, but this way the mic cable would a long ways from your strumming hand.

Rock on,

Hey Bala, I have to echo what all of the others have said. Great job, well done :)
Hope you figure it out to play at an open mic :)

Thank you LBro! :) Didn’t know you are a Beatles fan :O
I see what you’re saying. It happens during my exaggerated strumming towards the end. I was trying to experiment with my mic setup and had it a little too close. I’ll definit work on it :)

Top notch, Bala!

This is a really complicated piece, which you have captured the essence of with just your guitar and voice  8)

Forget the vibes- you win a prize for this!

The prize is free bed & breakfast in our Merseyside Airbnb, with a personal tour of Liverpool, including Strawberry fields, Penny Lane and the houses the fab four grew up in.

Hell, I'll even throw in a pint in the Cavern!

Let me know when you're coming  ;)
