Can anyone tell me what tone John is singing at for This Boy and how I can get there? I can hardly hear him, but I want to sing his part. I was going to play Twist And Shout and sing backup, but because of something that happened yesterday, I want to play this song instead. Any help is appreciated!

Not sure about the tone but Lennon is singing harmony. The song is in the key of D capo-ed at the second fret. Hope this helps.

If you look around online you can find the complete score to every Beatles song, which is a very nice guide.  It isn't 100% accurate, but provided you can read music it will point you in the right direction. (I can, but very poorly haha)

Thanks a lot everyone! I have a lot of practicing to do. I got sick last night, don't know if it was nervousness or food poisoning, so I have a lot of ground to cover in five hours (I only learned the song two days ago).  a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Hey,

My names Tom and my band Jolanga have been struggling this song for a while now. Especially John's low nasally part. Anyway we managed to find help online and this is our attempt. We have a gig at the cavern coming up so hopefully its sounding alright. Any pointers will be greatfully appreciated.

Thanks x

What do you mean by 'tone'?

Do you mean what tones is he singing i.e. what notes?

Or do you mean tone in the sense of the character of the sound of his voice e.g. nasal, shouty, operatic, whispery, head voice et ecetera?

 

I'd suggest you just LISTEN. One assumes three of you are singing and each will take a part, so just listen, listen, listen! You're unlikely to find a chart for what he is singing. Sit down at the piano and sort out each part from the chords. Listen, listen, listen to the original.
