2019 Cover #30 (Working Class Hero)
« on: September 04, 2019, 08:22:14 am »
This one I mainly see as good practice for picking out alternate base notes and sing at the same time. Not easy. I miss quite a lot of the base notes but works ok anyway. As usual lack of dynamics and with some more practice I think I should be able to this one more justice. There should be a hammer-on on the D-string at times but cant do that with the alternate base notes and singing at the same time yet. I didn't know how to end the song really, need to listen closer to what John is doing.

But I will leave this one for now and continue my journey towards 52 covers.

Summed it up pretty well, Johan.

Still I can attest to it being an enjoyable listen. 

Big kudos from my personal perspective at being able to maintain a steady rhythm and phrase all the lyrics. 

Now I am inspired to see if I can make a better go of it myself, for the same reasons you mention and it being a great song.  Previous attempts fell apart in spectacular style.

As David said, an enjoyable listen for sure. What you're doing with this is not easy as you point out. Like everything new, it just takes practise. You did well with your singing on this one. Very good!

Thanks David and David. Maybe playing this song in a Lacoste piké is not very credible... ???

David P: Looking forward to see/hear you give this one another shot.

May be a while, Johan ... going to some practice effort to get the playing to an adequate enough level to be able to sing and play.  And trying again yesterday, the phrasing on some of the lines just messes me up, trying to get the delivery right to where you change to the G.  Do OK on the chorus :)

Hi Johan,

One of my fave Lennon tunes.
Good job I thought.

Lennon wasn't short of a bob or two - so the Lacoste top is fine.  :D

Sounded good, man! You've come a long way. I like that you didn't record the video through a hazy filter. Really nice morning background listen.
