Thread Name: Incomplete Beatles songs
Subject: RE: Incomplete Beatles songs
Emmylou harris has done a few nice covers of Beatles songs. her recording of 'Here, there and everywhere' is simple, light and tender without being cloying. On a very early album, PIECES OF THE SKY, she covered 'For No One' and to my mind, it's the best version of that song I've ever heard.

Any woman with a similar vocal range interested in playing some Beatles tunes would do well to listen to her covers for pointers on how to make their songs appropriate for a female voice with a folk/acoustic type arrangement.

I often sang 'Dear Prudence' and 'Across The Universe' using a folk arrangement back when I had people to play music with. (sniff sniff - no Los Angeles Mudcatters)
