Hi at everyone!

My name is Christian and I'm new here. I'm 25 years old and I'm from Berlin. I'm listening to Beatles since I was 14 or 15. I'm a really big Fan of the fab four and I love to play their songs on my guitar. I've never had guitar lessons, so I'm learning it on my own and sometimes I try to sing the songs. I find it very cool that you guys make your own cover versions and so I tried it, too. 🙂

I hope you'll like it and please excuse me for my english.^^

 

Ein Deutscher!

Entschuldigung, aber ich liebe die Deutsche Sprache, Kultur und natürlich das Land. Dein Akzent hört richtig gut aus. Meiner Meinung nach ist dass, du ein bisschen wie John hört. Willkommen zum diesen Forum und ich hoffe dass, du hier bleiben wird.

Und ich entschuldige für mein Deutsch 😉

Aaah eine Begrüßung auf deutsch, wie schön! 🙂

Vielen Dank für deine netten Worte und dein Deutsch ist ziemlich gut!  😉

Thank you for your warm welcome. 🙂

 

@Silly Girl

Yeah, because I learned playing guitar on my own, maybe I developed an unorthodox style. ^^

It's a mix of strumming and finger-picking. 😀

Cool! I do that too, when I play While My Guitar Gently Weeps Anthology version (that's what George was doing). 

To @tt me, use @ beatlebug. 

Yeah you're right! In this version the style sounds very similar. 😀

Oops, I forgot. It wasn't While My Guitar Gently Weeps (which is flat-picked), it was Here Today , which is a mixture of fingerpicking and strumming. My mistake, sorry!

No problem! 🙂 Did you ever tried to play "Jenny Wren"? 😀

Btw: Are in this thread some cover versions of yours? Or can i find something anywhere else?

Here's a cover of Come together, with some nice vocals by my friend Lukas and me doing one of the most famous bass-riffs ever on the bass-okulele...

I recorded the entire Abbey Road album in my home studio, and I really wish more people would hear and give their opinion :)

I'm Jordan, 19 years old, no instrument is programmed, all live. 

Dude, that stuff was fantastic! And I say that as a musician who is easily annoyed by bad Beatle-covers!

All the vocals spot on, even "Oh Darling", instruments as well great. And what also impressed me was how you got the atmosphere and special sound of every sound so right! I'm just afraid you spend not enough time outside or with other people... 😉

Just kidding, keep it up, you're brilliant!

If you like check out this cover of one of my favourite tracks.

I transposed it, because in D it's just too high to sing for anybody but Paul.

Then I slowed it down a bit.

I took some inspiration from Stevie Wonder's insane cover, noticable in the backing vocals and the lack of the 3/4-rhythm - which is a huge part of the original's charme, but I didn't feel like it fit here.

At the end I added a guitar solo, because that's always fun to do.

I played the bass part with an actual 70s Hofner bass.

I won't inflict my high school German on you but I liked this, you've got an almost John-like quality to your voice in that octave. I'm working on a techno cover of Tomorrow Never Knows myself, I've got the makings of it so far but there's a lot to go!

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Thanks a lot! My equipment is not that great, but I do my best to acchieve a nice sound (recording the acoustic guitars with mic AND pick-up, for example).

I have more Beatle-covers, one of my favorites is this one (haha, the big picture with the eyes is a bit scary!):

I don't play the Flugelhorn, so I did the solo with the trumpet. 😉

I recorded this as some kind of bitter-sweet tribute, when my first wife left me (the other songs were "I'm so happy I can't stop crying", "I am a rock" and "April come she will", all on soundcloud).

It's hard to find a song that sums up both parties' feelings as well as this one.

OK, my effort is up:

It's transposed down to G because I can't sing in E without cracking a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

That's really cool!

I like the groove with the 80s flair and the added chord change to the IV!

And you even pulled the backwards stuff and the effect on the vocals! Well done!

Thanks! The backwards stuff was done with a terrible cheap acoustic guitar I have with strings that badly need replacing, no sustain at all 😀 I had to throw in distortion and a fair bit of echo and delay on it. I will probably do a remix anyway, most of it was done in Audacity and I should pull it into Audition and play with the nice effects in that, might make the backwards guitar a bit smoother than it is. Very pleased with the vocals, that was the first serious effort with my new AKG 220, there's no EQ on that at all except for the telephone bandpass effect after the solo.

Just wanted to share it with you guys. 🙂

Don't know if it's the right subforum/category, but it seemed appropriate.

 

 

Hope you like it!

Shame these covers don't get more response.

This one is really unique and creative and deserves more clicks. Although I did miss the "weeping guitar", I admit. 😉

Keep it up!
