This sounds completely like "Ihr Freund" unless you play it at a slow tempo.
I agree. Even at slow tempo.
No German nowadays would say "Ja Freund", this is a term out of the Middle Ages :)
Care to share with us, how it would be said?
What does it even mean? Are you saying yes to a friend? Are you referring to a person as a 'yes friend' (...like a person who always says yes)?
maybe it's the answer to someone asking if it's your boyfriend? 'yes, boyfriend'
