Nope not me

 

I am in NYC though, and looking to put a Beatles band together too.. a younger (18 to 28), more energetic band than all most of the tired old Beatles bands that are around at the moment, dulled from years of repetition etc… as you know the Beatles had stopped touring around age 25, and broke up around 30!

 

Found a great young Ringo, we're just looking for the right John and Paul.. a-hard-days-night-john-4 a-hard-days-night-paul-4

I looked for duplicates. I know there are at least two threads devoted to covers. Then I realized that there aren't any threads to post your covers! There are threads where individual members posted their covers, but I thought I'd create an open thread for cover posting.

I know there are members who perform Beatles songs. *cough*paulsbass*cough*

Well, I do too! And I thought I'd share my cover of "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" with you guys.

I just listened to yours, M3. Personally, you hit a home run. It's great. And somehow, your voice sounds like I always thought it did. However I'll probably never actually post a cover of my own, seeing as how my sing voice is bad.

Thanks!

I was in my hotel room. :P I was kind of nervous, because I don't like the way I sound when recorded.

I did about 5 takes. The one I posted was the only one when I tried to imitate the flutes. :D

I'd like to see yours, Sun king. I'm sure your voice isn't as bad as you think it is!

Oh yes it is. This is the one time where the younger of us can claim the other is ignorant. Blissfully ignorant. And anyways, I would never, ever post pictures or videos of my person on the web. Ever. Even when I get Facebook, I'll still not use a real picture.

Wow nice to meet you M3!!! That cover is good! I think you have a nice lovely voice. (Mine is just awful. When I sing the dogs cover their ears and start howling) I like the "hey!" a-hard-days-night-john-2

I've always been doing Beatles-covers since I got Audacity (HA!).

 

But I actually like to do it live (With perfroming Beatles-songs).

Great cover, M3! I loved it. The flute bit was a nice touch. a-hard-days-night-john-6

 

We also finally get to hear Please Go Away, the one with the caribbean feel, like it would go well with claves (I think that's what it was a-hard-days-night-george-9)

 

You've already seen my band's covers of Back In The USSR and Imagine (not really Beatles, but yeah), so I don't really have anything to post. Maybe in the future?

 

If I could sing, I'd post something, buuuuut… Yeah. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

Just got around to A) getting signed into YouTube on my IPod and B) liking the song.

Wow, thanks, guys!
When I watched it on YouTube, I thought "I sound like a dork."
@Sun king: What's your YouTube name? (You can PM me if you don't want to broadcast it.)

Good guitar work. I think you might have tried too hard to impersonate John, which meant you didn't sing as well as perhaps you can (I really hope you were trying to impersonate John, otherwise I've just insulted your singing. Oops). You're a teenage girl from Utah, John was a man in his 20s from Liverpool. You're never going to recreate his vocal, so just sing naturally- maybe that's harder with a song you know and love.

Thnks for the advice, paulsbass and Walrus! I'd give you apples, but I'm on my iPod.
*apples fall from the sky next to paulsbass and The Walrus*
Well OK then. :D

Nice, M3! It takes a lot of guts to get up there and record that. I think I agree with Walrus, try being adventurous with your voice, find your own style! You're definitely on the right track. And never be afraid to use a capo. Just going along with what paulsbass was saying, it's fun to change up the key a bit. I find using a capo the most convenient way to do that.

Well done M3 and paulsbass. It looks like you both had fun recording those songs. I know I had fun listening to them.

M3 performed her own flute accompaniment and paulsbass his own background vocals at 2:53. Very talented.

Thank you both for sharing.

This is a really good idea for a thread. I love both of them, and well done for having the guts to post them in the first place. It's really odd seeing and hearing what you're like in real life aha. Let's get some more covers done!

That was great, paulsbass! Your voice is really good, and your guitar work was solid throughout the whole thing. 

It's kinda weird seeing what you actually look like, though. a-hard-days-night-george-4

 

Both of you are awesome. apple01

Sure.

 This is how to insert a link in a message. this is great if you want to post a youtube video without embedding it.

 

1. Write a text that will be your link. Example "This is my video"

2. Highlight the text.

3. You will see in the icons of top, click on the icon with the "link". (The text must be highlighted so you can click on it)

4. A little window pops up. Paste the url from the webpage (or in this case, the youtube link)

5. And that's it.

 

This is my video
