Kon'nichiwa Shigeki Adachi-san smile

My gosh!!!! This is such an impressive song and you sing it incredibly well.



I love the relaxed style of your vocals. There’s a hint of jazz in your presentation that I like a great deal.

While I don’t speak Japanese, I can hear that you’ve put a lot of effort into choosing words that flow from syllable to syllable. The language sounds that I’m hearing fit so well to the melody and glide so nicely from note to note.

Also as I listened, it seemed like the words you chose ended mostly with vowel sounds. Is this by design or do Japanese words end mostly in vowels?

As I was trying to work out what song your tribute was dedicated to, I narrowed it down to “Yesterday,” “Yesterday Once More” and “Yesterday When I Was Young.” I eliminated “Yesterday Once More” and then couldn’t decide between the other two. I was fooled by the hint of a French sound in your arrangement. As is often the case when I listen to your songs, Francis Lai and Paul Mauriat music came into my mind. This was why I thought that you might have dedicated this song to “Yesterday When I Was Young.”

That’s when I cheated. I scrolled down and found out it was “Yesterday”! Because I know that the melody of Yesterday’s A-sections is 7 bars long, I listened closely to what you did. I was impressed. At the seventh bar, you added a pause on all instruments. This gave a hint eight bars of music without destroying the feeling of seven bars of melody. From my point of view, that alone is worth a round of applause.



I really, really enjoyed listening to this composition.

All the best,
Noel

P.S. Congratulations to the Yamaha guitar students, too. His playing was great!

Wishing you the best.

Alan said EXACTLY what I was thinking!! Do not know the inspiration but LOVE this!! Such wonderful strings!! Take care. Greg

Noel,

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am really glad you like this tune.
And I am very happy to hear you enjoyed my vocals.

I think you are just like Agatha Christie in music.
You see through the musical composition tricks I've set up one after another.

Regarding Japanese, all Japanese words end in vowels.
Rather, all Japanese syllables consist of a combination of one consonant and one vowel or one vowel only.
So the first line of the lyrics is written in alphabets as follows.
"i - tsu - da - ro - o, a - i - sa - re - te - i - ta - no - wa"
If you want to know more about Japanese pronunciation, please see the link below.

I am always very encouraged by your kind words.

Best regards.
