Nice cover @Mr. Kite Jake Bugg did a cover at the Cavern Club and messed up the lyrics made me angry. I will post my cover of She Said She Said once I record it. Figuring out the strum pattern was a REAL hassle. I am pretty busy at the moment but will get around to it.

Thanks! I can't wait for your cover, but SSSS seems like it would have a difficult strumming pattern. I hope you have time soon! 

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

After recently finding my old flute, I wanted to cover The Fool On The Hill with as many instrument parts as I can. I will probably take a while since I don't know how to play any instrument very well.

Never say never cause it's never 'never'

That would be cool, @Annadog40!

My cover of
Norwegian Wood in the background of my new Beatle facts video. Please tell me what you think!

Hey the part you play for the sitar is it based on D chord+D string? John loved adding D string on 4th fret to D chord, think he does it in this song. I play the sitar part on guitar based off D chord+d string and C chord was wondering what you used.

I did it by ear but let me get my guitar and figure it out.  Now you mean D relative to the capo right?

Edit: I just realized that it doesn't matter because there are no open strings used in the lead part

Edited edit: There's one open but that doesn't matter it'll just be a second fret.

Yeah that was my fault wasn't even thinking about the capo when I made comment. I guess I mostly use G and D string plus A at the end. I strum into D guess thats why I thought there a connection. Simple but efficient. Recorded a short of how I play sitar part. Had to go electric bc of poor mic quality on laptop. Let me know if sounds close enough. Thinking about covering it in brothers band. 

 

feature=youtu.be

Good video! That matches the guitar part though. The sitar sounds higher pitched so I do that starting on the 7th fret of the high e.

I was realizing that today while relistening to the song bc of the Norwegian Wood story thread.I'll give that a try. Do you work it all out by ear or look up tab? I mean for whole songs know that you said sitar was by ear.

For rhythm I use the Beatles chord book, which is really great, some simpler stuff like this I can pick up by ear, but a lot of lead stuff I usually look up a tutorial video and sometimes consult a tab.

Hmm I should look into the book. Is it pretty accurate as the way they played it? Yeah i play rhythm. Also does it go into strum patterns? John was very underated in my opinion. All the rhythm parts of his song are always unique.

Ya people joke that the bass is the part people don't remember but it is really the rhythm guitar that gets forgotten

Agreed, Johns playing especially in the early days drove the band. His playing on All My Loving is superb.

I always though the was great on All My Loving. But, yes it is really accurate, it was "specially arranged by Ricky Rooksby from the actual recordings, in the original keys," it says on the back. But some small stuff is missing like in the book for Norwegian Wood, it just said D for most then Cadd9 then G/B, when for that whole d part he does some hammer-ons and other D based chords that i figured out by listening.

Yeah I think what I was playing is what he hammers. It covers strum patterns?
