Rain - Beatles cover

Recommended Posts

Terrific version, John.  It evokes the Beatles while being uniquely yours.  I'm surprised more people don't experiment with backwards recordings, as easy as it is these days.  Good to hear you again!

So cool, so fine . . . the vocals here are so well sung and recorded, I am most impressed by this cover, really captures the spirit of you, as well as those Beatles.

You did a good job on this cover - I really enjoyed the vocal harmonies.

I especially liked the bass in this as well - as I do in the original.

No crits on the mix - sounds quite nice to me.

Always a tricky band to cover, but this works you did a reasonable job, thanks for sharing the mix sounds good here.

Lynn, noynekker, Douglas, and Wookiee,

Thanks for the positive comments!  It was a fun project.  I'm hoping it gets things rolling for me.

One big "crit" here! Dude, you gotta get the finish off that Casino! I suggest some 80 grit...

Thanks DeeringAmps!

Haha  on Casino.  Never.  Funny thing about my guitar is I bought it on eBay.  It is an Epiphone Elitist model.  They guy I bought it from was in a Beatles tribute band called "The Cast."  He played George Harrison.  However, it didn't come with a Bigsby like George had.   So the guitar has a lot of Beatles' music in it :)

I like this equal to the original . . . love your own stamp on it. Super clear mix and killer smooth vocals. I love a band called The Samples and this is in that same sweet spot.

I would only offer the crit that you really got your money's worth out of that one tom fill  :)

Really cool job, sir! I look forward to your next Red Button adventure.

cheers,

-Tom

One of my favourite Beatles song.  Excellent job.  Good vocals and I love the sound of that guitar panned hard right.

Tom, thanks. I know exactly what you are talking about.    I found the best cover of the drum part on YouTube.  You can't even hear the song.  The guy is reading a chart and you have to sing along to figure where he is, but; that guy nail nailed the part.   I recorded the drums using my V-Drums kit.  I overdubbed all of the fills.  It was then I realized Ringo relied on a certain fill combination a lot in the song.

Thank you Max and Freddy! 

The left guitar is a real Epiphone Casino tuned down a whole step.  The right guitar is a Line-6 JTV 59 emulating an Epiphone Casino.  The tuning is a little crazy.  D-B-G-G-D-very low G that you can hear ring out at the end.  The Line-6 allows for this tuning virtually via emulation.  You would need a very thick string to tune the 6th string to a G below an open E.

Just had a listen - great job!  Really captured the vibe without sounding exactly like the original.   Vocals were a standout for me.   👍

As one of the world biggest Beatles fans, this is awesome and very well done!  Way to also make it your own.  Excellent harmonies.

Very nice. I enjoyed that. I agree with DeeringAmps: just a bit more more dirt/grit. Maybe that good old-fashioned Beatles phaser in parts but I'm being picky. Good job all round, well done and more please.

Thank you Michael and Mahavishnu!    I thought I was the world's biggest Beatles fan.  😁  I'm filled with useless Beatles knowledge and currently reading "Tune In" with 1200 pages of more knowledge.
