Can You Feel The Love Tonight
James Galway played the above song.
Can You Feel the Love Tonight
is a song from Disney's 1994 animated film, The Lion King, composed by Elton John with lyrics by Tim Rice.
Can You Feel the Love Tonight won the 1994 Academy Award for Best Original Song, and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. It also earned Elton John the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
The rendition above was played by James Galway, one of the world's best flute players. It is so elegantly played that anyone hearing it would be touched. James added lots of flourishes in the music but he did not overdo it. It is perfectly done.
Recently I've been learning to play James Galway's version and hopefully I'll be able to master it soon. To do that I need two pieces of software:
1. I need a software application to slow down a section of the song so I can recognize the exact notes. This software is called Audacity. Here's a screen shot of Audacity:
2. I need a software application to record the notes to make playback easier for me. This software is called Crescendo Music Notation Editor. Here's a screen shot of Crescendo Music Notation Editor:
I have tracked almost all the notes. I just need a bit more time to complete. Then I'll be able to master this song.
Hope you like Can You Feel the Love Tonight!
Below is my rendition of 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight' years ago and it is nothing compared to James'.
