What do you all do when you want to play songs with more than one rhythm guitar part like Two Of Us ? I’ve tried to find a way to integrate the most important parts of both Paul’s and John’s guitar part in one part but I keep failing. Since I was thinking of recording a cover I wondered whether it would be best to record both parts individually? Or maybe I should play the strumming pattern generally more freely?

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Hmmm, I dunno; I just play it. a-hard-days-night-john-6 But if you’re going to record, then by all means use multitracks.

What I like to do when I play guitar is play one part while imagining everything else in my head and I might switch to a different part for the next verse. For example if I’m playing Revolution I might do John’s part for the intro 1st verse and chorus then George’s part for the 2nd verse and chorus then John’s overdubbed solo then George’s part for the 3rd verse and John’s overdubbed part for the rest of the song.

In the case of Two Of Us there’s 3 guitar parts, an acoustic rhythm by John, an acoustic lead by Paul, and a bassline played on a Fender Telecaster by George. If I were playing live, I’d do just Paul’s part because he does the same part as John for most of the song with the only notable difference being that before each verse he plays a riff. However, if you plan on recording this then doing all 3 parts is recommended.

What kind of acoustic  guitar strings do yall use?

I used Ernie Ball Earthwood strings for about a year and half, and went through about 3 packs of those. Then my friend (who is endorsed by elixir) reccomended elixir strings to me. I went through a pack of those and now it’s time to change my strings, I am curious what yall use. Elixirs are just too expensive.

I’m really out of practice, but the last strings I bought were Elixir Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze – they are quite expensive, but I’m impressed with the quality.

I’ve also used Martin Fingerstyle SP Phosphor Bronze and D’Addario Phosphor Bronze, and they are worth considering.

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

When I buy my strings, I ask for each string individually because I like to get the thinnest gauge for the bottom 3 strings, then the thickest gauge for the top 3 strings.  As for fancy strings and all the details one has to learn about them, I don’t bother and just trust the clerk at the guitar store to sell me a moderately good brand.

I have a Martin guitar and I buy the Martin strings (the regular acoustic custom light 11s because I find that size a good balance between the tone of regular 12s and the ease of play of 10s). I went thru a brief phase where I put Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings on my acoustic so I could do fun bends, but I decided it sounded too jangley.

On my Fender Strat, I use Ernie Ball Regular Slinky, which are 10s.

I had some coated Elixir strings once, but I hated how slippery they felt under my fingers – their longer life wasn’t worth the loss of playability for me.
