It is hard for me to sing as well. I don't sing the high notes. That helps me when I sing a Beatle song with my students. The other day we practiced with "All I've Got To Do" the line of "IIIII'll be there" my class and I just made a pause and continued.

Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie…… Something in the way she moves…..attracts me like a cauliflower… Bop. Bop, cat bop. Go, Johnny, Go. Beware of Darkness…  I believe in SH...

Does anyone else find the vocals on The Beatles' songs very high? I can barely sing along to many of them because they're at least an octave too high for me. The chorus of
She Loves You springs to mind, but there are others.

Most men are baritones of some kind. A good deal of the Beatles' songs lie in the higher tenor range, especially those sung by Paul and some of John's higher ones. The average male singer, if untrained, is unlikely to be able to sing past G above middle C (G4), which is the note in the chorus of She Loves You on the first "yeah." Paul, as a tenor, writes songs which often take him up to the tenor high C (C5) or even above in some rare cases. Matching the Beatles note-for-note without a naturally high voice, or training, is no mean feat.

Here's my cover of Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End. I basically recorded four times, so yes, I am singing with myself. In the background, you can hear The London Symphony Orchestra's cover.

Emil, sorry in advance but now it's time to be harsh and honest.

 

This was really horrible. And terrible.a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

1) NOBODY is capable of singing well while lying down in the bed, so this makes your singing even worse, PLUS it's not very nice or entertaining to look at you lying in bed with your headphones on, looking concentrated and listening to something we can't hear.a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

2) Even if you were standing I guess it wouldn't sound much better. Sorry to bring this to you, but you don't come even CLOSE to the original melody.Sounds like you never tried singing before. Ever.paul-mccartney

3) You might think about the fact that we don't hear the London Symphony Orchestra in the headphones like you do. YOU hear a lot of orchestra and a little bit of yourself. We hear very little from the orchestra and a LOT from you! And it doesn't sound good. At all.

On "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" we don't hear any music AT ALL, just your own weeping. Did you watch your videos yourself?

These are no covers, these are crimes.blue-meanie

Please do yourself a favour and remove them as quickly as possible to save us the pain and yourself the shame. And I mean not just from the forum but from the internet.

 

It's nice to have enthusiasm, and I guess it took some courage to load up this stuff, and I guess you really didn't know how bad it was (I still guess you were suspecting it might not be TOTALLY sensational).

 

Sorry again, but singing is not (yet) for you. Join a choir, get some training and advice and try again in five years.

PS:

Get rid of all 22 "friends" who "liked" this on facebook. They are not your friends, they just make fun of you (although I don't understand what they say....)

PPS:

Maybe if you can't get famous, you can get INfamous on the internet! I honestly think your performance is bad enough and you take it seriously enough to make it look funny and disturbing and fascinating enough like a traffic accident. People LOVE to watch traffic accidents.

What you need are spectacular titles like "worst Beatles cover ever" or "worst Beatles singer ever". Believe me, once people start sharing it, it might go through the roof!

Have you considered a bluesy number like "Yer Blues"? I am not a musician, but to my ears, there is really nothing very complex going on in that song. It is one of my favorites on the White Album.

No matter what, good luck to you and your bandmates.

Thank you Zig :)

We have actually attempted "Yer Blues", and its not terribly hard, but to get it just right is tough.  It's like "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" in my mind.  Where its not terribly hard individually, but together to get it just right takes a bit of effort with all the time changes.

Do you guys find the early songs or older songs harder to play?  Sure there are exceptions on every album as far as difficulty goes, but in general what do you think?

Alright, so, I've done a little recording of the song "Girl" from 1965's Rubber Soul
Before you hear the vocals, know I'm also a 14 year old... ha ha. My singing voice will probably get a little deeper.

So anyways, check it out and please leave some feedback. Thanks.
