My take on The Beatles "Julia"

Recommended Posts

I adore this song since 1976 when I first time listened it. Never had the courage to aproach it and never will... Good cover, mate! I can't do that.msp_thumbup.gif

Excellent cover heymisterk!

 

This is one of Lennon's most sublime creations IMO. This and "Beautiful Boy". It is so delicate in the fingerstyle and so evocative in the imagery of the lyrics. This makes it very difficult to play. I find I tend to rush the tempo. To make it softer I play it on my nylon string guitar.

 

Has anyone seen "Nowhere Boy"? If you haven't, and you get a chance, watch it. It is is a pretty accurate depiction of Lennon's childhood up through the inception of the Beatles. His relationship with his mother, Julia, and how it is portrayed in that film, makes this song all the more poignant.

 

Thanks for posting this. :)
