Lesson notes

Girl was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney based on an original idea by Lennon and performed by Beatles on their 1965 album “Rubber Soul”. “Girl” was the last complete song recorded for that album. Unlike most of their earlier love songs, “Girl” was one of their most melancholy and complex at the time. Another Beatles lesson by Jim Bruno and sung by Fred McCarty. Topics covered include, establishing chest voice, vocal cord shading, why repetitive notes sound like different pitches, attitude, singing from the heart and rhythmical phrasing. Although this song predominantly stays in chest voice, the challenges lie in the performance, shading, and rhythmical aspects of this song. Good intermediate song for male voices. As always Jim points out plenty of topics important for both female and male singers.
