"Come Together" Acoustic


Recommended Posts

A few current topics collide!


I took my Martin CEO7 (many threads) off the ToneRite ( see thread) to check how it is going, played the usual blues in E, A, D etc. Sounded great.


People talking about John Lennon in a thread, so I had a go at The Beatles' "Come Together".


So here is a solo acoustic/vocal version of the tune played on my Martin CEO7:

The things you come up with never cease to amaze me.





I was still loading the thing!



I had to funk it up a bit as it sounded fairly dreary normal feel all on my ownsome.



I assume John wrote it and I assume the title means: everyone JOIN Together for fun and laughter Ha Ha Ha....not the modern meaning...... [mellow] :mellow: How did it get on the radio?




PS CEO7 back on the Tonerite for its last day.....

Did you pay royalties to Chuck Berry for your recording?







Chuck has his hand out too?


He is more than welcome to a percentage of everything I have made from the tune so far......zip.....future revenue....zip....minus lawyer fee......zipplus we'll call that. I have a large triangle pick somewhere that Chuck dropped when I saw him in about......hmmm...1972? Does he want it back? I thought it was a sign from the Guitar Gods.......



Thanks for the other replies too!


It is a way easy song..remembering JL's wacky lyrics would be the hardest part. Just a shame I didnt learn it when I was in a band - could have been a killer encore/closer type number - I didnt because for some reason I assumed it was hard to do, maybe Mr Mac's bass, but really the rest is peachy!



(The CEO7 makes it nice to play around the 10th fret.....some other guitars - maybr not!) :unsure:
