    I wanted to get two tunes recorded this week, I gave Wonderful Tonight a quick run through and recorded the song in one take. I want to improve my ear/melody/timing skills. There are a couple rough spots but things are improving.

    Wonderful Tonight


    Wonderful Mike! ya, timing, phrasing, articulation…we all approach it differently, that’s the beauty of it (self expression).
    You’re obviously not relying on the actual transcription and that’s the goal. Once we actually learn the basic melody then it’s play-fun time.

    That’s why I always prefer a basic easy skeleton chart; easier to “fill in the blanks” so-to-speak. It will come out a bit different every time this way, depending on how we feel our mood etc. Well done.
