Just one more example of why the Beatles were "sui generis!"
I've bought the Beatles catalog 3 times (at least!) by now.
Mono-box amended with Abby Road and Let it Be in stereo was the latest.
I NEVER stopped listening to the Beatles.
I still hear new stuff.
*Someone in one of the other Beatles thread something to the effect of 'old hat' or 'I don't hear anything new anymore' - ?
all I'll say to that is ... "Really? - I'll bet ya".
Another vote for "And your bird..." What a great lick.
Another one I remember giving me fits back when I first learned it was "Dear Prudence."
Then the non-stop marketing has succeeded.
Like I said above - my eyes glaze over and my ears close when I hear a Beatles record but it all came back into technicolor when I saw it being done - especially the pre-pysche stuff.
Great Paul bassline isolated:
Maybe, maybe not ... I wore out two sets of vinyl over the years.
I don't even wanna think of how many times I've bought Kind Of Blue and Speak no Evil.
Ha ha...I'm on my fifth or sixth copy of KOB, I think. I keep giving it away to people who need to hear it.
Yeah, Macca has said about his Rickenbacker 4001S bass that it stayed in tune better than his Hofner and that the improved intonation of the long scale bass made it easier for him to play more adventurous lines up high without sounding out of tune.
The reason why he never played it live with the Beatles was the weight, the Hofner hardly weighs anything and the Ricky was a backbreaker.
However with the Wings it was a different story.
But mostly because he retired his Hofner from live work because it was all busted up. Look closely at the neck, it's bowed giving the strings a super high action. The man is a monster, being able to play with the strings at such a height.
