I thought it was pretty good. I assume there's at least two guitar tracks in there?

Actually, I have an idea for collaboration on some covers. If you're interested PM me.

Thanks, Faceo! Yeah, there's the rhythm track, two sitar lead tracks, because I was listening to the song and playing each part by ear where it fit instead of recording the sitar straight through, so I used two tracks to get the timing without recording over the previous part if you get what I mean. And the last track was the drone that I just mentioned, one note throughout that's barely audible.

And I could use a bass for some covers, so Ill PM you if you've got ideas.

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

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.

@Mr.Kite, great job! It is a very good cover. And the recording sounds very clear - I've been trying to find a device that would lead me to a similar result for a while now. What did you use to record 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!

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.

Thank you very much, @ScrambledEggs! And it's a Blue Snowball microphone... Not too expensive for a good mic and great quality. Just bought it around Christmas. I got it for 49 flat but it seems a little more expensive now.

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.

I'm not too great with technical music knowledge, but I think the rhythm (taking in account the capo) and lead in in the key of B or B sharp... Not sure but they do match

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.

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.

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?
