@stephen thanks so much for listening and your helpful comments. I think with a little more time I will have it down. My time this month was divided. Last month I was so inspired by the many performances of St James Infirmary, that I wanted to learn it. So have been working on that as well as Daybreak. I’ll continue with this to both improve transitions and pull offFebruary 28, 2022 at 11:07 pm #51064mademoiselleannetteParticipantFebruary 28, 2022 at 11:54 pm #51067lhamiltonParticipant
I’ve already submitted but I’ve been working in an intro to Wouldn’t it be Nice and wanted to share it though I’m not sure it’s very good. The intro is normally in what sounds like a calliope so I tried to aim for something slightly out of tune.

Wouldn’t it be nice
Wouldn’t it be nice not to have messed this one up; God only knows it doesn’t do Brian Wilson Justice :(.

Thank you Stephen! I understand the pointer you gave, I find it hard to shift from strum to pluck, time to practice some more. 🙂
All the best!March 1, 2022 at 8:13 am #51074henri0Participant
@puppylovesuke you’re kidding, right? I was waiting for a hilarious mess, but it was beautiful. I really loved this performance. I think Brian would like it too, he’s a kind, inclusive musician!March 1, 2022 at 9:47 am #51076lisadmhParticipant
@Stephen: I hear the break from the rhythm at that one spot now. Thank you for pointing it out — I didn’t hear it before. I will fix it!March 1, 2022 at 11:06 am #51077biancakParticipant
Thanks, Andrew, for the feedback.
You are correct, some notes got rushed or were too short giving some wobbliness within bars… I was just glad being able to piece the 4 different parts together (as I practiced them separately for the first weeks) and play them at a similar pace. But I could also hear the unevenness that you mentioned… 🙁
That is something that I can spot only when listening back to my recording but that doesn’t mean I can immediately correct it, too…March 1, 2022 at 11:36 am #51078March 1, 2022 at 1:30 pm #51081
Here’s the rest of the feedback we haven’t gone to yet 🙂
seoulkim – Here’s my feedback for you and the video I referenced.
mac1984 – Great job on the timing, feel and rhythms! Well done 🙂
mademoiselleannette – Here’s my feedback for you 🙂
lhamilton – Lovely playing, Linda!
puppylovesuke – That was a beautiful performance, David! I’d even say it’s the best performance I’ve heard from you to date. Well done!!
@joe150 – Says your video is private. Can you change it to public?
mkstewart67 – Beautifully played, I enjoyed watching your performance 🙂March 1, 2022 at 1:42 pm #51085
I changed my video to public.March 1, 2022 at 2:17 pm #51087
@joe150 – Sounds great, Joe! I would suggest to keep practicing with the tab player. 50% speed is okay to do. Work on 4 bars at a time and boost tempo gradually. You’re making great progress, keep up the good work!March 1, 2022 at 2:17 pm #51088
