^ What a great song! the opening riff is juicy and his vocal line is both gritty and gripping. I must learn the bass line.

My two friends and I are doing our first gig together on New Year's Eve (gulp!) , so we are learning lots of new songs together! It's two guitars, and me on a keyboard doing bass with my left hand, and whatever else I can do on the right hand (piano, organ, claves, etc.). I'm having to learn to use my keyboard as more than a simple piano, it's like learning a new language ... plus the time pressure - it's only two weeks away! No drummer, we really need one, but it's hard enough getting three of us together in one room at once (we're all in work release programs, our ankle bracelets start shocking us if we're not back at the facility on time  ;) ).

We're doing two Beatles tunes - Get Back, and I Feel Fine. On Get Back I made up a lower John harmony on the last verse (kind of paralleling Paul, but starting on the A instead of the E) , and also the last chorus (also paralleling Paul, but starting on the C# rather than the G). I'm kind of scared about doing it, but hopefully it will work out. One of the other guys likes it, we haven't run it by the 3rd guy yet ...

For our next gig we'll do "Let It Be", and maybe "Maybe I'm Amazed", and definitely "Slow Down", and if I have the guts "Kansas City" or maybe even "Lucille"!

Have a great time New years eve amigo....Those I feel Fine harmonies will go down a winner. The pressure of time is the best way to get it together anyway. I speak from experience. hehehe

The secret is to enjoy it. ;)

On making sure I had You'll Never Walk Alone chords correct, I discovered the very end chords are the same progression as You Know My Name (Look Up De number)....just thought I'd share that! lol

Thanks for asking, An Apple Beatle, sorry I missed your post back when!

It was lots of fun, everybody had a great time, we are our own worst critics, people just kicked back. Nothing like Tequila to keep 'em happy!

I'm envious of how many new songs you are learning! Last song I learned is "Rock and Roll", the Jerry Lee Lewis version, we are playing that for our next gig in June. If we ever get together to practice that is ... But if it's anything like last time, you will be right once again, the pressure of time is what will make it come off.

Take care!

Cheers amigo, glad the gig was a good un. A lubricated audience always helps or did you mean the tune tequila. ;)  
Gotta keep growing. I like to treat cover gigs as paid rehearsals, a study into the art of popular song. Using a golden thread I hope my own voice comes out of the diversity and not unlike Macca, can turn my range to a few tricks. That in turn should hopefully compliment this original music album a few friends and I have been trying to complete and helps finance them endeavours. I get to gig on many different levels which I love and which is why I got to keep it fresh and enjoyable. I still manage to get to play what I like to play and make an existence, which I'm grateful for.
Now getting a a band together for rehearsals...I know them frustrations! Hoping that changes soon when I get moved into some rehearsal premises and office...Well excited. :)

Beatles gig at the festival
 next week means I'm heavilly learning the lady madonna bassline and on the side Oh Darling as I have not been able to play and sing it with conviction just yet.

Back on topic....If I Fell in c sharp and And I Love Her in Fminor. Just done an hour and bit Beatle set today at a friends wedding. Lovely day for it....Ok, ramblings over. :)

For some reason, I've always played it in D. Why C# for you ... preference, or is that their actual recorded key?

am not really sure what all the chords are as there a lot of add ons like f#m7 or something close to it.

ive made a video of me playing it here to help a little the first chord is  f#m with an add on on the bottom string 5 fret which is the A note

Yeah me too. I was watching youtube from A hArd Days Night movie with my friend, where we were both unable to play along with the chords we had known. Kinda freaked me a bit playing it today.
