Hi All. I was inspired to have a go at Another Day In Paradise after hearing it mentioned on a Rick Beato video that @DavidP posted. I was a big Phil Collins fan back in the 80s/90s but had kind of forgotten about this song.
Clearly mine is a stripped back acoustic version as the original has multiple instruments including the piano riff which I’ve tried to recreate on guitar.
As ever, it’s a one take which is a bit of a miracle as the riff is played so many times I didn’t think I could do it without messing up at least one! They’re not perfect but not bad.
ps. Ok, so it’s not a Wednesday.
Hit another one out of the park Gordon. Really enjoyed that.
Great stuff Gordon, I really enjoyed it.
The riff sounded fine to me it adds so much more than just plain strumming for a song.
This was fantastic. I hope to one day be this good!
Excellent Gordon. I liked how you combined the melody with the chords. Sounded smooth and accurate.
That was some solid playing and vocals. Gordon. It’s been a while since I’ve listened to some Phil Collins. I was actually thinking about watching Buster the other night. But Seriously, I thought you delivered the riff very well (especially when singing over it. You’ll earn yourself some Cadbury’s Chocolate if you follow up that fantastic performance with In the air tonight.
Great job Gordon, very nicely done.
Great as always Gordon!
Sounded great, just to get through those 4 minutes without any major hiccups is an achievment
Really impressive playing Gordon! This was a cool version of a song i havent heard for many many years
That is such an awesome song. I remember listening to it a lot when I was a kid.
Great performance Gordon. Loved it.
Very well played with a lot of confidence Gordon, great!
You always seem to deliver Gordon. Every single time. I don’t think I’ve ever heard one from you that I didn’t really like. Great song choice too, and bravo on that little repeating line.
Nice work Gordon, I was a Collins fan. So many great songs from many artists in that era
Wonderful playing and vocals Gordon. Those extra little melody notes blended in really well into your cover. Bravo
That was really good, loved the strumming dynamics. Its been a while since I have seen a video of yours and you have improved a lot.
You did an amazing job on this. The song was one of my favorites when it was new, brings back great memories. Rock on my friend.
Superb! Really well done & executed! I totally enjoyed your arrangement & feel that the vocal accompaniment was excellent!
Keep those “One-Take Wonders” coming!!!
It’s really inspiring to see how so many people in this Community, from all over the world & in so many different walks of life can pick up a guitar one day & just keep improving over time!!! Wonderful feeling being part of this group of Musicians!!!
Sounded pretty good to me . Great job
