Welcome to the forum Little Mild. Nothing wrong with your avatar or user name in the slightest. I know absolutely nothing about chords or chord changes or anything like that in the slightest and having been butting in on everything going so jump right in and enjoy yourself -  the waters lovely (i have the intro to I Lie Around in my head – need to play that now).

Joe, I wonder if "Introduce Yourself" should be its own category.

It's not obvious that it would be in "Getting Better" and I wonder if people wouldn't even know of the thread's existence.

Good point, but the welcome emails people get with their auto-generated passwords also contain a link to this thread.

Hello, hello!  I am eighteen almost nineteen, and I'm a college student living on the West Coast of the United States!  I have been lurking on Beatles Bible (that's right, I'm one of THOSE PEOPLE) for quite a while, but I was finally motivated to join as a member for two reasons:

 

1. I am waiting for Mark Lewisohn's Complete Chronicle, and it is still not here.  Still.  Not.  Here.  And I am on such a Beatles kick right now that I may explode if I don't talk about them with someone, you know what I mean?  And I don't want to explode.  Because, ew.

 

2. I chose Beatles Bible specifically because people on here seem to have very good taste in books.  Good taste in books = They are good people.  MY LOGIC IS FLAWLESS!

 

Anyway… other things about me.  Well, I'm kind of a spazz on the internet, which is amusing because I am a fairly quiet person in real life.  I am currently stuck between Psychology and Cultural Anthropology as a major.  I like cats and I have a dog and a turtle.  I'm not sure how that happened.  I do a lot of creative writing, and am currently trying to teach myself the guitar.  It's working.  Sort of.  I've also had some voice training.  Several people have tried to teach me note-reading, but it never sticks in my head.  The most I've ever been able to memorize is that when the little circle-shape things go up or down, that means the sound is supposed to do the same thing.  I am mildly obsessed with manga and anime.  Also action movies, 'cause hey, 'splosions.  I go on walks, but only so I don't feel like a lazy sack of topatoes (a rare tomato-potato hybrid found in very few countries, including all the ones in my head.)  I like to keep up with politics, Harry Potter holds a special place in my heart, and the last book I read was a fantasy-mystery-otherstuff novel called Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

 

I have no idea how on earth I'm supposed to choose a favorite Beatle.  (I want to hug all of them.  A hug.  Just a hug?  That would be nice.  In fact, that would kind of MAKE MY LIFE.)  But I can tell you all how I came to See the Light of the Beatles.

 

My parents had a CD of their music growing up, but partially because it was my parents music and partially because my taste in music pre-13-ish sucked the big wazoo, I wasn't really interested in them until I saw a documentary on them a few years ago, celebrating the bands' fiftieth anniversary I think.  Something about them seemed very unique to me, so I looked up their music again… and oh my God.  Revelations!  Beams of light!  Vague images of beings with strangely colored heads!  

 

In the three or so years since then, I have become thoroughly and unhealthily obsessed.  My family would consider getting me therapy if they didn't know I went insane years ago.  a-hard-days-night-ringo-10  But hey, hooray for insanity, right?

I like to spend a lot of time listening to music. My other hobbies are music theory, piano, guitar, the Universe, and learning Spanish and Japanese languages. My favorite sports are soccer, cricket, rugby, IndyCar series, and Formula One.

My favorite Beatles album is Sgt. Pepper, but Abbey Road is also one of my favorites.

Welcome, 9symphony9!!! Sounds like you're pretty busy. I play piano, too, and I love it. I've tried guitar, but it didn't really work out. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Welcome Eilwynn and 9symphony9!

9symphony9, will be interesting to see music theory applied to Beatle songs!

Feel free to start a thread!

I am SatanHimself.

 

But don't judge me too harshly.

 

I have been a life-long lover of the Beatles, and I hope to meet some like-minded people who want to talk about the Beatles (and whatever) on a different level.  I'm interested in the way their music affects us mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  I look forward to being involved in some of those 'controversial' conversations.  But in a positive way!  No trolling.

a-hard-days-night-john-3 Checking out the "new" forum look.

After some prodding from my friends, I've decided that I should at least pop in and say hi.

Hi. ahdn_ringo_09

A quick re-introduction of skye:
hearts The Beatles (duh), Aikido (my obsession for over a year now), & cooking.
blue-meanies Um, not a lot really. Heard a cover of Friday yesterday. That seemed unnecessary.

In closing, greetings to all forum members, both old and new!a-hard-days-night-john-1

Thanks for the welcome (and apparently welcome back to Skye)!

 

I will try not to be annoying.  I will try to keep the conversation fresh and engaging.
