Nice one, Rene. Enjoyed the vocal, and how you handled the change. I think your version is better than the Beatles' one (AAHHH! HERESY ALERT!).

Explanation and expiation - In the Beatles' version, the Lennon parts are thoughtful and poignant, but for me, the middle section is too overblown and self-endulgent. In my mind, the vocal is king in this song, and the middle section unbalances the tone of the song. Anyway, I'm sure no one will lose any sleep over what I think

Good work.

That was wonderful Rene - I really enjoyed it!

As far as feedback, well, I think that I now understand Oasis.

Nice work! One of my favorite Beatles' tunes. Your rendition is really good.

Your voice also reminds me of Cat Stevens a little. I mean that as a huge compliment.

Wow Rene. Awesome version of a song thatís a Tuff one to tackle! Especially solo with just guitar. Not many could pull this off. Best! Sage

People in the entertainment business have certain qualities that the public finds interesting, attractive, inviting, attention getting, drawing them past the fourth wall to be a part in some way of the experience.
Aside from a unique vocal delivery, competent guitar work to support the vocal, your defining skill, the one thing above all else that draws me in, is the way you attack a song with complete and total fearlessness. Every time, no matter the genre of music, you leave it all out there. Every time. Now thatís a skill worth learning.
Thanks for another lesson, CoolCat!

Rene, I've been a fan for a couple of months and I'm totally loving your version of The Beatles's "A Day In The Life."

Hi Sage,
Truly a beautiful song, and with the pathways for the singer to go a lot of ways.
You are correct, a challenging song, and also a melodically fun song to cover.
Thanks for the superlative comments.
Rene
