Solo guitar -modern art version of Eleanor Rigby

Description
Painted with broad strokes :)

The Beatles, when they just happened decades ago when I was young, everybody wanted to get a guitar. And it seemed every house in our neighborhood that had a kid, had a guitar practicing to be like them. Though I understand that is really impossible to gain stature they sealed for themselves, they sure gave a lot of us plenty of inspiration!

Impressive interpretation of a classic, Bill. The higher registers of the Santa Cruz (?) ring like the Liberty Bell. Lovely recording, that I enjoyed immensely. Take care, Peter.

Thanks Bill
Enough inspiration for the coming year!
Seriously, finger style is the genre that separates the wanna bees out, got to know how to do, to get this quality, no software can match the feel... Fab stuff!

I remember attempting this way back then
Also Yesterday was another one I use to try when I first picked up a guitar. Never sounded this good though. Beautiful music is like wine that improves through the years and being part of it must be special. Nice one Bill!

Very nice. One of my mentors has a good instrumental version of this same song. Are you still using a Rode NT1? I remember a song a while ago that you mentioned using one on. I picked one up because of it.

Eleanor Rigby
Fluent and interesting - enough of the original to grasp it, enough variety to make it fresh. As always, beautiful tone to the guitar. Fine work, Bill.

Listen to you play!
Bill, this is gorgeous. I'm reminded listening to you here that you're one of those musicians who seemingly have the ability to draw magic out of the air (this is one of the great mysteries of life to me!) I was born around the time the Beatles became famous, but their impact was so great, I've felt I've known their music even before I was born--well, that and my older sister was a Beatles freak. I still have a picture of me at age 2 wearing this horrible "Beatle wig" she got at some theater showing one of their films. If nothing else that wig made me look like the son of Marty Allen and Don King! Thanks greatly for gifting us with another fine performance--and best wishes to you and yours this holiday season! Michael
