Here Comes the Sun.
Cry Baby Cry....
Our old guy band plays Come Together, Day Tripper, I Am the Walrus and Tomorrow Never Knows.
The three we've been working on lately are I Dig a Pony, I've Got a Feeling and Birthday.
Between the Beatles and Tom Petty it's hard to find room for much else.
these a great(but not better!) rock pop version by Aussie outfit "Zoot" (including a few Aussie legends like Rick Springfield!)
I add "something" to that list
wow, so many good ones, what an output! prolific and consistently great!
I'm so tired
(Kinda out if tune-ish on some the bends and stuff but what the heck, I did it for free!)
Went here to name the same song!
Across the Universe is simply a truly amazing tune.
John’s triplets on All My Loving.
I suppose While My Guitar Gently Weeps doesn't count, sort of....being Clapton?
Difficult to choose, but I'm going to go with the one that had the most effect on me when I was a ittle kid in the 60s.
Wait, on Rubber Soul.
Just the sound of a strat with volume swells, but even now it brings back the intense sense of awe and longing I had just imagining owning and playing an electric guitar.
I was going to answer something else, but that's a really good song.
The acoustic guitar is the core of the song, and the electric and bass are perfect accompaniments.
The bass line has a driving, but unbalanced feel: at the beginning it starts on D and works its way down to Bb like the guitar, but instead of following the guitar and going back up to D it keeps going down to A (making that chord a D/A), and only THEN goes up to C to go down to A. So despite lining up harmonically, guitar and bass feel strangely out of sync, because one is doing D down to Bb, and the other is doing C down to A. Although the only difference is that the guitar is playing a D chord, and bass is implying a D/A, the descent starts and ends at a different place.
The electric guitar is also great: for a long time it feels like it's reaching, trying to find something, just not quite getting there, until it finally lands on that high D note, and finishes the song with that satisfying guitar melody.
The only thing stopping it being the perfect Beatles song is the fact that only the of them are on the record (Paul played drums instead of Ringo).
I could explain, but I would be banned
Here Comes The Sun, if I have a capo handy
Otherwise Happiness Is A Warm Gun.
She's Leaving Home. I've worked out a solo arrangement 'Tommy Emmanuel style'. Very satisfying song to play, as it's so melodic.
To see what's possible, have a look at the Andy Timmons videos on youtube. (His 3-piece band does the whole Sgt. Pepper album as an instrumental!)
Ive Just seen a face
I wanna hold your
