Simone kicks the jams, part 2: Mellow Yellow

14 Jun

Well, normally she sings along.

Our jam sessions usually go like this: we break out the guitars, I tune mine, she plunks her way through two or three songs and then loses interest.

Anyway, “Mellow Yellow,” along with “We Are Young,” is Simone’s favorite song, and has been for over a year. Here she sort of screams a little, but she mostly just stared at the screen. (The addition of the computer made her nervous.) The result is mostly me. My guitar skills are meager, but what I lack in skill I make up for with enthusiasm.

If you listen closely, you can hear Pearl contribute near the beginning.
