I’ve been working on this a while, practicing different fingerstyle and strumming techniques with an aim to create my “own” version and add this to my (very slowly) growing repertoire. Such a fun song to play, can be done upbeat and brash, slow and melancholic, and anywhere in between.
My intention is for this to be as polished as possible - “Open Mic” ready. Of course when actually sitting down to record there were about 3-4 takes before I settled in, (including a smashing version where I forgot to hit record!). So I welcome any and all feedback (with the caveat that I’m fully aware this is quite Coeh-brothers / Greenwich Village cafe ready just yet - but some day!).
I’m not going to hang you for this no matter how many times you ask… Beautifully played and sung, and I could also imagine all kinds of other performances,so go shopping instruments or band members…but this is a very nice performance…
@roger_holland@oldhead49@SgtColon@adi_mrok thanks all for your kind words and support - one of my biggest lessons learned on this was how much time it takes (for me anyway) to really get a song embedded deep into my bones so I can play it without even thinking about it and just let it come out the way it wants to (instead of reading off a chord chart or lyrics sheet - though of course there’s time and place for that kind of performance too).
Absolutely agree with this!! I remember a video of Justin’s (I think in one of Tammy’s lessons) where he said you should be able to play the song and carry on a conversation at the same time. Yep, learn it inside out, upside down. I think that definitely translates to the listener, too.
