"It doesn’t really sound like he was the quiet one.

Well, he never shut up. George had a lot to say. Boy, did he have a lot to say. That’s hysterical to me, you know, that he was known as the quiet one. I assume he got that name because the other ones were so much louder. I mean, they were very loud people [laughs]."

I still don't get the curling one from the first page  🙁

Ah, thank you, never seen "Help !".  Lotsa folks here in Canada enjoy curling unironically!

Wah? a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

You really should correct that.–> HELP! You'll love curling twice as much. (I do admit that curling is strangely hypnotic.)

In other words, I'd love it exactly as much as I already do!

OK then. a-hard-days-night-paul-2Carry on. 

 

New quote:

michaelcalcina asks:
George: In the Anthology book, you
talk about the unwound G string. What is that? I play guitar and I'm not
sure what you're talking about.

george_harrison_live:
It's one of those little things that
goes up your butt so that people can't see your pantylines.

george_harrison_live:
No, It's actually a 3rd string that
doesn't have a winding around it.

    I love that g-string quote. He had a dry sense of humour, did George.

    That Anthology quote:

    And, of course, he brought with him the great secret from America – the unwound third string. Years later, I became friendly with Joe Brown, who had toured with Eddie, and learnt about the unwound third string. When I listen to early Beatles recordings, one thing that's very apparent to me is a little piece that I play on the third string which is like three notes. It goes 'de diddle dum', which if I'd had an unwound, lighter-gauge third string, I could have done it in one bend. In those days I wasn't smart enough to think, 'I'll put another second string on in place of the third, so I can bend it.' But Eddie Cochran had that all sussed out.

    The de diddle dum bit, I think, is the little motif he used all the time throughout 63 and 64. IIRC he does it several times in the solo for Everybody Wants To Be My Baby. It's interesting how he stopped doing it from 65 onwards (I don't think it's on Help !, and it's certainly not on Rubber Soul ) – I wonder if George Martin or the other Beatles suggested he stopped doing it, as it was becoming a bit overused. a-hard-days-night-george-7

    I wonder why they did revisit at the end, when they were trying to get back to their roots? Maybe George just didn't by then. a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

    a-hard-days-night-paul-5: Agreed. (I’ll say this next bit in a pseudo-American accent especially for American readers) And we’ll be back in the U.S. of A. around the time our next film comes out in August, folks, so see you around, huh!

    a-hard-days-night-ringo-7: That didn’t sound a bit American.

    a-hard-days-night-paul-3: Well nobody’ll ever know that when they read it in the Book, will they?

    a-hard-days-night-ringo-12: Go on, then. Talk about the film in an American accent.

    a-hard-days-night-paul-10: O.K. It’ll be finished by the middle of May and it’ll be made in colour.

    a-hard-days-night-ringo-8: There you are! I told you they’d be able to tell.

    a-hard-days-night-paul-2: How do you mean?

    a-hard-days-night-ringo-5: I distinctly heard you say c-o-l-o-u-r instead of c-o-l-o-r. (To the tape recorder) Fred Tape heard it too, didn’t you, Fred.

    Looks like it is in a Hard Rock Cafe in Buenos Aires. I was hoping this awesomeness was a little closer. a-hard-days-night-paul-1

    Really? I could take a bus right now and in an hour I could see that thing, whatever it is, because I can't see what are you people talking about...

    I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition.
