Mrs. Robinson

So I’ve been continuing to consolidate Grades 1 & 2 since posting my last video in March. (That earlier video is here: First post, first AVOYP - Driver 8/REM

I’ve also started the Strumming SOS course, and I’m nearly through Grade 1 of that. I thought that continuing to refine my strumming while also consolidating the lessons of G1 and G2 might make sense.

In any case, I did a new video, of the classic Simon & Garfunkel tune Mrs. Robinson. I first heard the tune (many years ago) on the Concert in Central Park album, so my approach the song is more informed by that version than by the Bookends version, although I do start with a chorus as is done on Bookends.

In any case, here you go. Always open to constructive criticism!

Thanks!
Andrew

Nice, I’m not nearly knowledgeable to offer constructive criticism yet but what I will say is you sound good to me. If you were sat round a fire and did that everyone would be singing along and smiling I’m sure. Bravo for having the nuts to put the video up. Good luck

@Jwaters Appreciate that, Jeff! Thanks!

Great work Andrew, I’m a fan of quite a bit of theirs. Nice percussive sound and solid all the way through in general I thought. :+1:

Only thing for me is I would preferred to have been able to see the guitar and your hands, I like to watch the techniques.
