Your Song by Elton John cover

Thank you.
I actually have a gig late October.
I will see if I can get some video done.
I am also hoping to setup a live YouTube gig soon. I have permission to post the link in this forum. Just need to work out a good time to ensure it is not in the middle of the night for everyone in UK etc.

Hi Ron,
Your finger work does this great song a lot of justice. I also enjoyed your impersonation of Sir Elton on vox, yet you made it your own style. Nicely done all around and I really enjoyed it! Your timing seems on the money as well.

Jolly good and looking forward to more!

Thank you for that Ron. I’ve had a quick mooch and probably out of my price bracket at the moment for the level I’m at.

I’ll just have to enjoy yours for now.

Cheers Byron. :smiley:

Very nice!

That is a really slick cover Ron and a great guitar arrangement. One of Reg Dwight’s finest and I was blown away hearing this for the first time, when his first album came up late 60s. You have really done it justice. Chapeau Sir !
