Hi, I'm Bungalow Bob. I have posted a bunch of comments on the main page of the Beatles Bible, and I thought I'd join the forum. When I was a kid, I spent countless hours trying to perfect the Spanish guitar intro to "Bungalow Bill," and I never got much faster than half-speed. And I always wondered which Beatle was skilled enough to play that slick intro. I've checked everywhere, even in Gideon's Bible. Now, I'm sure I'll find that answer here in the Beatles Bible.

Re the Bungalow Bill intro I've read that the guitar intro wasn't any of the Beatles but was tacked on. Have to find the source for details, maybe McDonald.

No its in That Magic Feeling by John C Winn who writes

"Another stock Mellotron tape was joined to the front of the song as an edit piece (either during mixing or final LP assembly). This virtuoso Spanish guitar run was reportedly originally performed by Australian session man Eric Cook."

 

Anyway, welcome to the forum Bungalow Bill.

Thanks for the prompt reply, meanmistermustard. As a token of my appreciation, I've got a 10 bob note for you. (Where are you going to keep it, though?)

I suspected that the virtuoso Spanish guitar intro was just a house test recording by a session player. As much as I admire George, John's and Paul's distinctive guitar playing, they all would be considered "so-so" virtuosos on classical guitar. I am impressed that you quickly provided the source book and the session player's name. I just checked with our local library, and I was able to find the book "That Magic Feeling," with no holds on it. So, I'll probably be able to pick it up tomorrow, and it sounds like very interesting reading. Thank you, and I am glad that I found this forum. In fact, I'm "Glad All Over." (Oops, wrong 60's British invasion group reference.)

Send me a PM and i'll give you details of where to send the note.a-hard-days-night-john-1

 

No problem at all. Was also curious about that guitar intro until finding the answer.

That Magic Feeling is part 2 of a 3 book set by John C Winn, the first is Way Beyond Compare which covers 1957 to 1965, the third, Lifting Latches, documents and makes notes on the studio tapes (Apple, EMI, Trident), including the work done by John Barratt, as well as looking at the BBC recordings and their inclusions on a handful of early 1980's BBC radio shows, and other stuff. All three are well worth seeking out.

Thanks again, MMM. Hey, you may be able to definitively answer this question that I posted on the mainpage: I found a discrepancy on lyric websites about the song "Love You To." Some of the lyric sheets read "Love me while you can, or I'll get a plan"... And other lyric sheets say "Love me while you can, before I'm a dead old man"... Is there an accepted correct answer here? The line occurs at the 1:00 mark, and it sure sounds like George is singing "before I'm a dead old man..." except sometimes it sounds like "or I'll get a plan"... My old sheet Beatles' music book that I would play along with read "or I'll get a plan"...

Maybe there is a Beatles Bible forum thread on "mysterious misheard lyrics" that I should be posting this in. Or, maybe this huge, important discrepancy has already been discussed and decided. "Julian" weighed in on the main page and voted for "before I'm a dead old man"... I guess I should get a definitive answer before I attempt this on karaoke night. ;-)

Its "before im a dead old man", never heard "or i'll get a plan", doesn't resemble anything George would ever write.  

Some of the beatles lyrics posted on the net are incredible in how bad they are. The one I always remember is from She Said, She Said where places have "She Said, Who put all those things in your hair"!. It doesn't even fit the damn sound of the line.

There is a thread on Misheard Lyrics as well as Funny Misheard Lyrics That You Probably Actually Heard Correct.

Oh wow. This is very VERY long. I am so very sorry.

Hello. My name's Brett. I'm currently twenty-four. I think the beatles have been with me my entire life, but I think the starting point was in 2004 when I was getting into Star Trek slash fiction on the stone ages of the internet, then ending up finding out about that rule where 'if it exists, there's fanfiction', and I ended up getting into some Beatle Roleplay group on IRC as both John and Yoko. (Yoko, because, well, no one else would take the Flower Princess.)

I think i drifted away to get into a very very long weaboo-recolored-sonic-x-screenshots-deviantart-dwelling phase, and gaining my best friend who now edits all of the fiction I write.

Then that best friend got The Beatles Rockband in 2009. It was literally all I played with her and her little sister when I babysat them, and i just had a ball of a time, laughing about things that i didn't talk about to Miss Best Friend until we went to go see this Beatlemania show by this tribute band of the same name on May The Fourth Be With You in the town right next to ours, (it was a big day, as it was also free comic book day,) and when we went back home, she was ballistic, all giggly, tears streaming down her face. Although whenever she talks about it, she talks about it in the way John Lennon talked about recording Twist And Shout. AKA, Not very well.

I remember her texting me (from across the street mind you,) and saying, "Brett, oh god, I can't stop listening to Hey Jude."

"We all have those days, Brynna."

"I can't believe i've never heard it before until tonight when they played it."

"you WHAT???"

And very slowly, my relapse in the Beatles became Miss Best Friend's fanbase introduction, as she didn't care to look up them on the internet in 2009. Her cousin told her before the show started, about Nowhere Boy. And so I IMMEDIATELY climbed through her first story bedroom window to look for it online and found it on Netflix. It was both our first time watching the movie. It wasn't until the ending credits, I said out of the blue for no apparent reason, "You know, if it exists, there's fanfiction." So she immediately went to Archive of Our Own and was laughing, "Haha, look at these losers! And their romantic writings of The Beatles! What DORKS!" 

I found her the next morning unironically reading a novel length fanfiction. Bless her soul.

I hope that post wasn't ENTIRELY repulsive.

Hi, guys. 

I can't help but feel like I've returned home on some level. I used to post under this name on the official George Harrison forum when it was active. I feel so pleased that I have found this place. I play guitar and ukulele, although guitar is my main instrument. I also write fiction and poetry. 

Looking forward to being here for a long time to come,

Hello Brett. I don't have much to say. Seeing as how i am 'Miss Best Friend', and you made me sign up to bump your 'Silly What If' topic. :///

I'm Brynna.

I literally cannot stop roleplaying as John either.

I need serious help.
