Found this in a related Yahoo story today. Pretty cool:
I never tire of hearing that chord ring out! Thanks for posting, cool little explanation!
You have to love his joy recreating that sound. Just great.
I always enjoy Randy's CBC show whenever I remember to tune in.
Great reveal about the awesomeness of the Beatles and this chord...
Randy Bachman always impressed me as being really innovative, and the fact that he figured this out is a perfect example.
One of the greatest chords in rock history! And there's no way you can recreate it on just ONE guitar - even if we thought so back then.
He's actually a very highly trained musician and grew up playing the violin and got lessons (for two years) from unsung guitar great Lenny Breau. Lots of jazz stuff in the old guess Who/BTO catalogue.
Can someone diagram that F with the high and low G and the C? I cannot figure out how he's doing that.
That's my understanding, and how I play it. Not THE chord, but has a similar sound with one guitar IMO
Now that's a chord! What would it be called? F7sus4+G ?
E - 5
B - 3
G - 5
D - 3
A - 5
E - 3
Who came up with that chord? Was it the boys or George Martin?
I would say 333213. Fadd9/G. No Bb, so not Fsus. F triad over G and C (doubled 5th) with a G on top.
BTW, there was a cool thread about the chord in the Theory forum a few years ago.
Here's some info on the subject you might find interesting. In fact, for all you Beatlemaniacs out there, I highly recommend you look around this site a bit. It is a very cool site, indeed!
Here's my quick hack version, unplugged
Cool. I like Randy's story about the pizza delivery guy who showed up at the recording studio in Seattle(?) at 2 AM(?) when BTO was recording 'Taking Care of Business'. He told them the song needed a piano and talked his way into doing a take with BTO with the piano on it. If memory serves me, BTO used the take with this guy who was dressed in camo and looked like Fidel Castro, according to Randy. And then BTO had to track the guy down and pay him some money. It's been a while since I heard Randy tell it on his radio show 'Randy's Vinyl Tap" on CBC radio (Canada), but I believe the piano playing pizza delivery guy went on to be the conductor of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra or some such thing.
I've seen that site before. I think they're right when they say the best way to reproduce the chord with a single guitar, is the G7sus4/A.
I always played the G7sus4 myself, but it sounds so much better with the A on the 6th string.
Try that one tap4154.
i play it that way, but on a 12 string. its pretty close.
Try it with an A on the low E-string, and it's even closer.
George said he played an F with G's on the top and bottom.
In fact he played an Fadd9, but if you're gonna include the other instruments, the G7sus4/A comes closest.
Fadd9 as played by George on his 12-string:
