Default "He ain't heavy he's my brother" acoustic fingerstyle

Hi folks,

i just recorded my easy-listing cover version of this sweet old melody last night.
It's based on Tallstrom's open-G arrangement - but i changed some notes and i think that my version is much more easy... ;-)

Greetz from hamburg & all the best,

Jimmy

Hi Jimmy,
when I saw your choice of song, I thought - oh no, will it be just a load of chords or the melody or will it have the "feeling" or "soul" that the lyrics deserve.

You did it.

Beautiful.

Lovely arrangement, beautifully played. Very "Tallstrom", which is a good thing.

That is fantastic, Jimmy! I really like how you arrange popular songs for solo guitar. Great playing and tone, too

My untrained ears can't pinpoint exactly what the difference in the two is, but the second one sounds more relaxing to me. Very mellow and peaceful. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for your feedback Nazump! The difference is a new part at 2:01 - the first version was more simple that the second one.
