Got It! Finally found a groove for this song!!!

Posted by Tim-mater on Saturday, April 4, 2009

OK... I have been trying to find the key, the tempo, the timing, the style for the Beatles song, "Yesterday."

Sooooo.... As my wife and I were in the midst of plannig our vacation to Jamaica, the the timing hit me like an ice cold Red Stripe... Reggae! The key of F (no capo) was an easy choise since that is where Paul McCartney wrote it (not where other banjo players have played it - or where I was learning it)... and the style was "right-hand-neck-position funky" since I couldn't rely on bluegrass licks in F anyway.

Masterpiece? Probably not...

Flashy? Certainly not!

Irie? Yeh Mon - Irie, no pressure - no problem...
