2019 Cover #41 (Mer Jul)
« on: November 25, 2019, 07:43:51 am »
#41 is a swedish christmas classic released by Adolphson & Falk in 1982. I am using different strumming patterns for the verse and the chorus, a bit tricky to master. The verse strumming pattern is D-x-D-D/U where the x is a missed strum. I know I should keep the hand moving and miss the strings instead of stopping the hand for the 2nd beat, need to work on that.

Mer Jul means More Christmas.

Next up is a instrumental song with a lot of single note playing, so quite different from my previous covers. We will see how that works..

Sounded good, Johan.  You have reached a level and are learning these songs to deliver a fine performance with seeming ease, playing and singing so comfortable.

Congrats on 41.  Look forward to 42.

Nice Johan! Strumming was fine and as David said, you're always looking really comfortable in all your videos now. Good job!

I imagine you are learning a lot as you do your covers, 1 per week. That is a pretty good clip. But they don't sound rushed.

Nice job hear, would like to hear the English words but the song is effective as is...

Rocking Seasons Greetings!

The Johan Juggernaut rumbles on stylishly and inexorably to the year's end.
