Don't watch this on youtube, get the DVD, it's sooooooo worth it! All in all definitely the best concert DVD I own and a TOTAL must have for ANY Beatle- and George-fan.a-hard-days-night-george-10

Thanks paulsbass. Up to now, I've only seen the footage on YT but do own the CD. I'll be sure to put this on top of my next Amazon order.

Indian music is very serious music. It really moves your heart and is difficult to play. I received a Sitar for a Christmas present last year and it is an amazing instrument. It takes a lot of patients to tune and play buy very gratifying. I can see why George loved the instrument so much. It puts on another level musically.

 

I've been meaning to ask you how the sitar lessons are going. Any progress?

No lessons yet officially. I have been teaching myself and learning from watching videos and the internet. I was laid off from work a few months ago so I am waiting to start work and then I will take a real physical lesson.

You are welcome. Self teaching just might be the way to go – worked for George! Good luck.

Norwegian Wood. The perfect song to start with.

Zig – George may have started off self-taught, but quickly realised he needed some proper tuition. Hence the trips to India in (I think) 1966 and 1967.

Ravi Shankar was one of his teachers. I once read a quote, possibly by him, saying that Indian musicians laughed at Norwegian Wood when it came out, because the sitar playing was so amateurish and simplistic.

And to think I love how the sitar sounds in there. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

The thing with me is I don't know what constitutes good sitar.

I am sure it is the emotion and passion one puts into playing. Right now I am just making a lot of pinging sounds on it. I also play guitar and Ukulele and have a duel with one of my friends so we want to use it for a couple of numbers. I wish I had more time to spend on it.

I guess that's the best explanation.

Has anyone purchased the new Blu-Ray version of 'The Concert For George'?

I heard it was recorded in High Definition and was wondering how much better it is from the standard DVD release.

^ We had quite a conversation about it a while back – I can't recall which thread and search is not cooperating.

But yes, a superb DVD and a brilliant example of how to do a multi-artist concert, and how to film and present one on film.

I really liked the songs Joe Brown performed; especially That's The Way It Goes off Gone Troppo.

I tried searching too but I couldn't find anything…  I never really have luck with the searches.

At least you had luck with the loan of the DVD – that's the important thing :)

I merged the threads as we already had one discussing this (love it, btw).

Using the search bar, if you type the words you're going to use in the title of a thread you're creating, you can see if there's a pre-exsisting one.

I just watched this again over the weekend. Each time I watch it, I go through so many emotions. I've posted before, my favorite moment is the knowing smile shared by Ringo and Paul during 'For You Blue'. It starts around 1:10 in…

One of my favourite concert videos, and a terrific tribute.

You can tell it was all people George knew and loved. Really the only person missing was Bob.

I loved the Brown's performances. Sam's powerhouse Horse to the Water with Jools. God! The lady has one helluva voice. And Joe's I'll See You in My Dreams. Impossible not to shed a tear in!

I should edit my first post because it doesn't make as much sense now..

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"
