    Default "And Your Bird Can Sing" advice wanted.

    Is it possible to make this sound decent on one guitar?
    I've got Hal Leonards song book with what is supposed to be a note for note transcription, but it is written out for three guitars.
    Since I'm not as yet set up to record, I am trying to work out some single guitar lines that get close to the record.
    Has anyone done this and can offer me some tips?
    TIA.

    One of my favorites!!! Use a 12 string!
    You can't write a chord ugly enough to say what you want sometimes, so you have to rely on a giraffe filled with whipped cream.

    is it harmonized strictly in one key? or better yet strictly parallel intervals? if so, you can get an intelligent (or not so intelligent, in the case of parallel) pitch shifter to play the other part ... a cooler thing might be to see if you just reintpret the tune in your own way - not a strict 'tribute band perfect' copy

    good luck
    have fun
