...with one instrument.

 

A different way to hear this very produced incredible album, with just one guitar and three choruses.

 

If you liked it, maybe you will like The Sleeping Philosophers' music.

Here's one of the albums:

Kudos for such an outstanding achievement! apple01

And your own album sounds great as well.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Really awesome version of Within You Without You . I wish George could see it. It sounds really cool on the uke.

Really glad you like it, that song is one of my favourites.

I like to think that maybe George would have liked it. 🙂

Great performance, you really gave Sgt. Pepper a new point of view, although I think having 2 guitar parts would've been better. I am intrigued by the way you play some of the songs, here are some examples:

Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band:

You play the verse with an open G only to play the A and C chords barred based off an E chord, a rather unusual way to play it.

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds :

You use a capo on the first fret and also seem to have the guitar tuned to F instead of E, very strange way to play the song, as I am used to playing it using this chord progression using a guitar in standard tuning without a capo:

Verse:

A A/G A/F# A/F

A A/G F

A A/G A/F# A/F

A A/G F G

Pre Chorus:

Usually play George's slide part that he plays on his Fender Strat over here, so these chords might be off

C D G C

C D A

Chorus:

G C D

G C D

G C D

D A

Seems inconvenient to use a capo for this song, especially during the chorus

Great job though, I wonder what will come around next time.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Thank you Dark Overlord!
I don't know, I just play, don't think very much about it. While I play I always try to find the sonority that fills better the space, that's why I search for different chord flavors, but I just do it, don't think about it.  And I wanted to be just one instrument, just that.

 

Next my new album, "Zenda", although probably tomorrow I will record a videoclip of the second song from Kayanga album, Funny Gee, which is quite beatle and I will shoot something visually related to the Pepper video, to try to promote a little bit my music.  🙂

I finally got around to sitting down and listening to these two albums. The Sgt Pepper cover is brilliant! It's so simplistic and yet very full. I quite enjoyed the crazy costumes and the background as well, it was very pleasant visually as much as it was musically. It stayed very true to the original album while not being too similar to cause boredom. Very nice job A+!

As for Kayanga, I quite liked it! It is very Beatley, and reminds me of a sort of exotic Terry Draper. Good work! I'm excited to hear your next album when it comes out.

I just made a videoclip of one of my songs, "Funny Gee", very Beatle-y stuff, same video style as Pepper's.
