P.S.:  There was one period of several months where I was determined to create my own "guitar bass" so I marched into the folk guitar store and demanded (pointing a water pistol at the clerk) that they give me the thickest bottom four strings they had.  When I got the strings home and took off the six strings from my guitar (coiling them up and putting them away in a drawer for the future when I might tire of my new bass arrangement), it was very difficult to get the thickest/deepest string threaded through the hole.  Also, as I was tightening it up, I began to fear that the sheer tension would crack the wood on my guitar. 

Anyway, it worked, and I was able to get very deep notes -- not sure if I got actually down to one or two octaves below the lowest E of a normal guitar's deepest string, but I was certainly swimming in the deep end more than I've ever done before.  One song I particularly liked to noodle around with, accompanying it on a record, was "Jitterbug Boy" by Tom Waits.

The only problem with that arrangement was that I couldn't play normal guitar whenever I felt like it (I only own one guitar; and the de- and re-stringing process was way too elaborate to be done regularly).  I finally came back to normal after a few months; but it was interesting while it lasted.

John's solo in Yer Blues . It sounds like ocean waves smashing into rocks during a thunder storm. George's solo is the lightning strike. I know, you all are probably thinking "what's this guy trying to be all artistic with his words for?" and I get it because I'd think the same thing.

My dad doesn't like hard rock or John Lennon very much, so it's my favorite one to put on whenever I wanna feel rebellious, usually after he plays something in his own room.

Not at all! I like your descriptive descriptions. (Says the person who likens the piano in 'Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)' to the waters of a spring bubbling up and thought the end of Long, Long, Long was the sound of the creaking timbers of a ship falling over, bones rattling, and a wailing banshee.)

Ohh, that was nice.  Thanks @Wigwam.  I learned some things about George's techniques that I didn't know before. And, it solidified my belief that The End deserves better than #10 in the Canon poll. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

Thanks for posting that @Wigwam . So many mentions for songs from Revolver and Abbey Road - it's no wonder I enjoy them both so much.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Ahhhhh beatlemaniacs_02_gif thanks for posting that @Wigwam. That kinda really made my day. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Happy to see they included all my favourite guitar songs. Also, the bit about Here Comes The Sun was very helpful as I'm trying to learn it and it's harder than it sounds.

Honey Pie 's guitar is so nice... and the solo is so very well played... Kinda sloppy, but just the right notes in the right place... And very tasty. I really like a lot john's jazzy phrasing chords like that thing he does at the beginning of the "Hey Jude " video, or in when i'm 64...
