2019 Cover #9 (Mellow Doubt)
« on: March 03, 2019, 03:05:59 pm »
Number 9 is from great scottish indie band Teenage Fanclub. Love this song and the whole album "Grand Prix" from 1995.

Struggle with the changes from old faithful to eighth note strumming and the whistling deffo need more work. Singing I think this one suits my voice pretty good?

Excellent performance, Johan.  I thought you did pretty well with the bits you indicated as being the particular challenge on this one.  Loved the vibe you had going here.  Combo of the rhythm and your voice.  Just a moody performance filled with emotion.  Excellent.

Thanks David, glad you liked it.

The change from old faithful to "pumping eights" is tricky for me, I have not practiced that very much but I decided to try it here since it sounds good in this one. When I listen to the original it sounds like they are doing something like that. The original also has a small "riff" on the d chord with a hammer on and pull-off but I skipped that, too difficult.

Solid stuff johan. Sining was very good i think this one does suit your voice. You also got some good accents on the high e that I liked.

Johan, you did a superb job here. Your "struggle" changing to 8th note strumming was not evident to me. I thought you handled rather seamlessly. Agree, your voice suited this song very well. Really enjoyable.

Great job Johan. Nice playing and I though your vocal worked well on this track. I still like to just mute the strings gently when trying to learn a new strumming pattern tends to work great to get into the groove. Pumping eights is really useful for those faster songs. Try it on something like Dakota by Stereophonics.

The guitar sounds very good there, nice and gentle strums.
Your singing sounded much better too.

With each passing song your singing seems to improve. Guitar sounded good to my ears. Not familiar with this one but enjoyable none the less.

Nice playing Johan, I thought you did a really good job switching to the 8th note down strokes strumming pattern, it fit nicely in the song too.
