Eight Days a Week

A folksy and gentle version of an old classic. Don't know that I've ever heard this song at a slower tempo.......sounds very cool. Gentle and easy-on-the-ears music. [thumbup] [thumbup]

 

Thanks MP, I think that Beatles songs are so good that you can interpretate them in many ways.

Hey Fretplay - How did you record this? I just like this one, you nailed it for me!

 

It's recorded on four tracks, simple stuff using a Shure 58 mic.

 

One, directly into a mic using a Martin 00028

 

Two, Lead voice into mic

 

Three, second voice on some parts again into mic

 

Four, a little percussion using a stomp box directly into the interface

 

A little reverb on tracks one two and three. fully cooked!

I like the way you played eight days a week.I like the way you made it your own I found myself singing a harmony to your vocal.

 

Strangely enough we do this song in my band, I sing lead and at the same speed as the Beatles the song is wide open to harmony. It was just when I picked up an acoustic guitar and just rolled the song slowly it all fell into place to do this recording. A song like this is wide open to interpretation.
