Greetings All,

I recently discovered this site and wanted to express my appreciation for such an informative source. I am 61 years old and have absolutely no musical ability whatsoever; therefore I cannot comment on chord progressions or tempos or anything technical. I have however been fascinated by The Beatles since early 1964 and love learning how they progressed musically (and led the progression) in so many ways. To be honest, I thought I knew a lot about them but this site has shown me to be a neophyte in comparison to what I have learned here. Thank you very much for showing me my ignorance and providing a means to help change it.

We're very happy to have you aboard.  It's always wonderful to speak to people who were there when it happened and can reflect on thoughts and emotions of the times when the music was brand-new.

E is for 'Ergent'.

Welcome to the site YllwMttrCstrd, nice to have you here. I also have no musical ability whatsoever, no nothing about chords or tempo or anything technical and dogs hide their heads in the ground when i attempt to sing, so don't let that hinder your posting here. Jump right in (which brings the brilliant I Lie Around to mind) and enjoy yourself.

Welcome, if you haven't already, then there's the 'Introduce Yourself' thread where you can say hello to everyone :)

Get stuck in!

Welcome aboard, YMC! :D Nice to have someone who can help skew the average age here upward - especially someone who was there and saw the whole thing in real time.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr
