I noticed at Glastonbury a few times Paul turned his guitar/bass to face skywards i.e frets facing up. Perhaps I haven’t been paying attention but I’d never seen him or any other guitarist do this before. A few times he did it mid song just before playing an intricate bass riff so I guess he was checking where on the fret board his fingers were. 

It’s odd because there are usually markers on the side of the guitar neck which tell you which fret you’re at and seems strange for someone with Paul’s skill and experience. Anyone notice this or have any theories?



I noticed too. And I’d recently seen him do it in some other concert, though I can’t remember how old that footage was. He really turns the guitar 90 degrees when he does it.

I wonder if it’s a nervous tick. I imagine he’d be devastated to play the riff off key. He must know the nut-end of the fret-board easily by touch, but he goes higher up much more rarely. So maybe it’s belt-and-britches?

I cant watch the concert in Germany. Is there any chance one of you can provide it?

BTW: I was hoping Paul would continue his Got Back Tour into Europe. Is there any info on that? I really would pay good money to see him in Germany.


I was lucky that a friend was able to set me up with a tunnel to watch it live. I still haven’t seen In Spite Of All The Danger (why did they cut it paul-mccartney)


I’m feeling certain I’ll never get to see him live, and obviously won’t get to see him in his prime. Can anyone recommend a good film of a live show?

The following people thank meaigs for this post:


My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney
