Default A Whiter Shade Of Pale / Solo fingerstyle guitar

Hi folks,

It was late, I couldn't sleep, and I was recording a new improvised version of "A Whiter Shade Of Pale". I've loved this song since I heard it for the first time. It was originally published in 1967 by "Procol Harum" and for me is one of the best songs of the 60s. I based my improvisation on G major chord (Capo in 3rd fret) and I hope you enjoy it.



Take care of yourself and stay healthy!

All the best from Hamburg,

Jimmy

Beautifully done, thank you. Such a great song. I have specific memories of it playing in 1967.

That was very, very well done. I really enjoyed listening to this while sipping my coffee.
As a beginner this will get added to my fingerstyle list of things to learn.
Thanks for sharing.
