2019 Cover #12 (Hey Jude)
« on: March 30, 2019, 07:01:47 pm »
Practiced this song for a week now, never played it before and thought it should be easy, looks very easy at Justins lesson, but have problems with both guitar and vocals. The vocals I probably need to practice more without the guitar. This is the best try so far.

That was a pretty fair rendition,  Johan. You have a pretty good feel for the song. My built in pitch corrector and metronome not good enough to be specific about any such issues.

Irrespective, credible performance of this Beatles classic which I confess to have no liking for.

At least you didn't throw in the high pitched shriek of Hey Judie Judie Jude Jude that was popular when people were singing along after too many drinks in my youth  ;D

And I think Beatles songs are often not as easy as they sound plus perhaps that there was lots of harmonising and combining on the vocals.

Well done, on another relaxed smooth performance.

Johan, it’s always the “easy” ones that seem to be the most trouble. That being said, I think you did an admirable job with this one in a week’s time. Nice one on the high na, na, na, nas, too. 12 down.

Pretty good job for a week. I can tell you that your a lot further on this than I will ever get... Playing seemed pretty steady....

Keep on rocking!

You nailed it just fine. Good and steady playing, you're making great strides. Your vocals have come a long way as well.

Seemed a little smoky in there though. I'm not judging, I've burned the bacon once or twice myself. <WINK>

Thanks all, your comments gives me some hope… When listening back today I think some parts are not so bad, theres some potential  :)

I thought I should be able to play and sing the song fluently right away, but no that didn't work. Foolish, all songs of course need practice no matter how simple they seem.

David: Seems like you almost hate the song…? Well its overplayed for sure, but I thinks its a marvellous tune. I left out those Hey Judie Judie Jude Jude, would need much more practice to make them work. And yes, Beatles songs are ususally much more difficult than they seem.

CT: Thanks for the nice words on singing and playing. Yeah, I burnt some bacon to make some cool smoke effects to the video  :)

Well "hate" is probably a bit strong, Johan. 

I am far more passionate and into the Stones than the Beatles.  I do like the early Beatles when they were rock 'n roll/pop than their later work, even though I know their later work is sophisticated song writing and ground-breaking production (I think George Martin was as big a part of the success of the Beatles as the musicians).  I like pretty much everything on that double album compilation with the red cover, and not much on the one with the Blue cover.

Just not quite my thing.  And Hey Jude is just one of those classic songs that never grabbed me and, as you say, the overplay probably didn't help.

And really, I think you did a good job on this one.  I think you are making progress with every recording.  So hats off for deciding on the approach to do a weekly cover and sticking to it.

Whilst I didn't think it quite reached the same heights of some of your recent songs I still thought it was good! It still baffles me how you are able to both play and sing at the same time. Looking forward to lucky #13! ;D

Johan,

another impressive cover indeed. Such an iconic song and you really did a nice job with it.
