(Extreme Guitar Work)

 

(Joseph Ferrante, a piano tuner of George Harrison)

 

This treatment of the song has been completely changed rhythmically and harmonically to obtain a very different song which hardly keeps any resemblance to the original one.
Only the lyrics and the singing melody remain untouched. The rest is another song altogether. The piece has been practically recomposed. In other words, another song was composed where the singing melody of the original song would perfectly fit.
An ethereal choir lays the carpet upon which the rest of the arrangements would rest.
A mixture of classical scales, indian music, greek music, latin bachata, mambo and flamenco brings the song into reality.

On top of an obstinate percussive tempo softened by a romantic bachata rhythm, we hear the sometimes sweet and sometimes savage expressions of the guitar telling us a story…
The third part of this recomposition gives the guitar the chance to break free from the melodic structure.
After a fierce battle in the oceanic winds against creatures of all sorts, we hear the guitar rest on an ingenuous final chord which, in the sunset is the herald of a peaceful starry night…
This Hey Jude was born to reach music lovers of all backgrounds and ages.
This Hey Jude is a child of the heart and is meant to reach the hearts…comes from the depths of the soul and from there calls out to the depths of any other soul….

The owners of the copyright for the original Hey Jude (Sony Music Publishers) were so delighted by this recomposition that granted Joseph Ferrante a publishing agreement for it, thus allowing him to restructure the song. It is important to notice that on very few occasions copyright owners have granted a permission to alter a song protected by them. To view this publishing agreement go to: http://ferrantemusic3.byethost…..com/12.htm

Concerning this Hey Jude of Joseph Ferrante, Richard Dunn of BBC World service commented: ¨I must say I found it a very original and quite virtuoso arrangement¨. Sam Winwood of Sony Entertainment (UK) Limited said: ¨I was really impressed with the quality of the performance and your new arrangement¨. Andy Turner of London Capital Radio went on to say: ¨I found it a very interesting arrangement¨.

For a 40 seconds preview of the song go to: http://ferrantemusic3.byethost13.com

You will only listen to the first part of the song. The most thrilling part of the song, the last part, is not heard on this preview.
