Thank you Dennise.
How can you not be a Beatles fan?….:rofl::joy:
Oh well…not everyone is.
Makes your lovely comments even more special.
Cheers :heart:

Hi Ron,
And again a great performance. :sunglasses: :clap: :clap: :clap: :bouquet:… your voice is so good that I think you need to put a little less reverb on it (of course not if the original sounds like that, in that case it’s 100% ) …of course a very personal opinion, but motivated by your quality :sunglasses:
I like the quality of your videos too…
Greetings,Rogier

Hi Roger,
Thank you. Reverb is an interesting thing. I reduce it in my mix, listen and think :thinking: nope it needs more. I increase it and go…hmmmm to much me thinks….:rofl::rofl:constant battle, so I appreciate your feedback and advice.
Cheers

Again a really nice song played and sung well but a bit too much fx on it, not massively so but enough to be obvious.
It might be a good idea to add fx to a dry recording to give you more opportunity to adjust it.

Another terrific cover Ron. Super vocal and playing. Like I’ve said in response to your previous AVoYPs, I think you use too much reverb, but hey, what do I know. :smiley:

Ron, another fine performance, both playing and singing. Not really sure I can say too much, you are at level of proficiency that is beyond my ability to do much more than applaud.

When it comes to the production, like Dennise, I am not a Beatles fan (it’s easy, just be a Stones fan :grin:) so not sure about the sound of the original to compare with your final production from an fx perspective.

I think the guitar tone sounds good with the fx you are using, but does have a processed rather than natural acoustic-in-a-room sound. I think if I was listening to a full set then it could become quite tiring (for lack of a better word) if used continuously.

My personal preference is to use just enough reverb, delay, chorus to allow the acoustic to sound rich and full, enhancing the natural sound, but avoiding sounding too fx-processed.

But it’s all very subjective.

Did a good job on the vocal, loads of dynamics and range. Didn’t pick up any clipping. So your set up for the vocal is spot on I think.

So being the stuck-record nag that I am, how is it going to identify an opportunity to play live at a local Open Mic or a coffee shop. You have the chops, just got to get out there and perform. Now I can’t recall what you said about that … a nag that doesn’t always remember replies :rofl:

Hi Ron,

Great job of a classic - Harrison at his finest when he wrote this.
I like the extra reverb to be honest - gives a nice dreamy quality to it.
Top work on the vocal.

Anybody else here think this title was a kind-of tease -
I interpreted it as “something by the Beatles” as opposed to “Something” - by the Beatles.

Anyway, that was fantastic. I enjoyed thoroughly. I enjoyed it all by the style it was really captured my attention.

Once again, a wonderful performance. Bravo!

Have to agree with Digger, Ron.

Well performed and yet again exquisite vocals. I understand what other folks have said about it being a tad heavy on the reverb and I would agree if you are trying to completely emulate the original. If so maybe back it of a tad but in the end of the day I liked it anyway.

Are you running the finished track through different speakers/headphones ? I find when I am rendering to get a balance that appeals to the wider audience, I have to master several times, adjusting to get a uniform sound. My headphones will sound rich and full but my PC speakers then come over vocally biased and Youtube on my phone a little thin and trebly. Tweak wash rinse repeat.

Not sure what you listen to the final cut on but worth comparing a couple of sources. But heck you may have done that anyway. Shoot who cares, sounded good to me !
