Yeah I get that I still had a lot to put in the list.

 

Recorder: The Fool On The Hill (Flute, but can be played on Recorder), Glass Onion, I Am Your Singer

Clarinet: When I'm Sixty-Four, Picasso's Last Words (Drink to Me), Step Lightly

French Horn: For No One, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Saxophone: Listen to What the Man Said, Good Morning Good Morning, Savoy Truffle, Oh My My, Jet, Bluebird, Angry, Whatever Gets You Thru the Night

Trumpet: Magical Mystery Tour, Penny Lane

 

I wanna set a goal for myself to learn all these one day but that would take a long time…

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

Since you're expanding to wind instruments in general, there's also:

For No One (French horn)

Martha My Dear (flugelhorn, French horn, trombone, tuba).

It seems like we'll never be done!

According to what I have read Paul is playing recorder, and penny whistle, on Fool on the Hill.

That may explain why the higher notes can not be hit on a regular recorder.

John playing jaw harp.

Also three flute players listed.

I still haven't learned to play that thing, lol.  

"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!"

If anyone was still interested in playing "Fool on the Hill" on recorder, I learned the notes by ear. A common misconception is that the recorder has a limited set of notes, since in elementary school you only learn the very basics. In fact it has an entire chromatic scale, and higher notes can be achieved by only half covering the thumb hole (the equivalent of using the register key on the clarinet). Here are the notes for the solo: F# F# F# F# F# G A B B A B C# D D D D C# A B E E E (with a trill to high F# the second time). The F#s in the beginning are low, low G, low A, B, high C#, and high D. It takes awhile to learn all the notes, and the higher ones can be difficult to hit, but here is a link to the fingering chart. http://www.recorder-fingerings.com/en/Div.php?f=P&t=aBar.1S.3a

I wish I could play the recorder.  Lord knows I've tried over the years; I just don't have any facility with wind instruments (I once rented a clarinet for a month to give it a try, and my neighbors thought I was strangling a duck in my apartment; ditto for a tenor saxophone).

Have you tried to learn the recorder parts for "I Am Your Singer"?

I'm a retired classroom teacher, now teaching music in elementary schools in Sonoma County, about an hour north of SF. I came across this site after finding an easy, excellent and correct-key arrangement of "Fool on the Hill" in Ukulele Songs for Dummies, looking for the recorder part. Sure enough, I found it here and will be working it up with ukes & recorders for our spring music showcases. Muchas gracias & kudos to YouKnowMyName for sharing the recorder transcription! (Ukulele Songs for Dummies includes easy-to-play, correct-key uke arrangements of "All You Need Is Love", "Eleanor Rigby" "Obladi, Oblada" and "Yellow Submarine", as well.)

You're our kind of teacher, passing the Beatles flame to a new generation. An apple for the teacher.apple01

You're very welcome. It brightens my day knowing that I helped someone, especially a music teacher; since the first time I picked up the instrument was in primary school.
