A day in the life (Cover)

Here's a Beatles tune from their recording studio years that can be done as a live performance and it's not too bad ;)

Fantastic! I had a go at this song the other day too! Still a bit advanced for me. Could get the verse but not the second bit. Might need tips from you later on

Well done mate, keep rocking!

I think you did really well on this. That part where you did the solo strumming was unique. I listened to the original also to see how it compared, especially on that part. Pretty neat. Good job!

Thank you Pam. That section can be extremely monotonous and boring so I tend to use some dynamics by increasing the volume of my strums there. The original sections are 20 bars and 24 bars long after all 😁

Excellent Bala ... you've got the vibe and feel of that one down good ... you must be the 6th Beatle :)  Especially good job on the vocal.  All the work you've done learning to sing really pays huge dividends.

Thank you David! The 6th Beatle comment made my day ;) On another note I have found a few places here for open mics but they’re mostly on weekdays. I need to come up with a plan! :)

Nice  :)  You've got the vibe on the guitar and great vocal to go with it.

Good luck with getting to that open mic, Bala !!

Very nice Bala! Thoroughly enjoyed this. It inspired me to have a go at it too as it's one of my favourite Beatles songs. This one will take a lot of practise. :)

Thank you Hilts! You should definitely give it a go! It's my most favorite Beatles song. The tough part is it's a very long song with different sections. So keeping concentration is pretty tough! Looking forward to hear your version :)

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.
