Practicing the Beatles

Practiced from my Beatles songbook

The other day

It was challenging

But if I can master one song

Like Hey Jude

It will be a victory

Some of the songs have chords

With like five notes

And I’m not sure how to use

All of my fingers

But the reward is sounding good

And moreover

Sounding like a pro

But for now

I just like playing around

The book I bought

Has every song

The Beatles have ever written

That would be a challenge

To be able to play everything

But their sound is something to enjoy

And it’s timeless

I also finished reading a book

About songwriting yesterday

And one of the interesting things I read

Was that when writing songs

You should record yourself playing them

In order to see if you sound right

Or need to change anything

I’d like to record myself performing

My first song

And hear how it sounds

There are a few parts I’d like to tweak

And at least check the beat

I can’t seem to play with the metronome going

But I’d also like to play with a pocket amp I bought

That hooks to your headphones
