I don't think any of peacejoytown's excellent fingerstyle guitar Beatles covers have been posted in this thread yet.  Here is his version of A Day In The Life , and there are many other impressive pieces on his YouTube channel:

Aretha's "Eleanor Rigby " cover is really interesting - she sings it in 1st person, she adapts the melody into a major-key blues, and she leaves out the last line, presu for religious reasons.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney

Yes, good one. I think I posted that somewhere about the forum, can't remember where though...

Just an incredible, very jazzy take on the song...

Still heartbreaking ten days off eight years after...

Love Josh and his mates....They seem to have such fun that I get jealous......

The attention to detail here down to the few harmonica notes......makes me enjoy the original even more.

I have an email alert for Josh's stuff so saw this a while back and sent it on to friends........I'd forgotten about this thread..Thanks for posting.

From Mike Love's 2019 album 12 Sides of Summer, quite the rearrangement of George's Here Comes The Sun ...

There was something very special about singing Here Comes The Sun — a song that was so meaningful to me and millions of other people — on the album...

Has anybody else come across Mattiboo's YouTube channel? I find him remarkable, especially the detail(s) he includes in the notes.

Edit: Looking back, I see he's already been 'discovered' on about page 19.
