"Babyish drivel" indeed. I know you're a little ticked at me, but you're not doing much to help your credibility especially when you say you reported me, which I doubt, but even if you did, all he's got to do is look at what you post, like, say, this original piece here. You can keep on if you wish, but I'm done.





Oh, it's just to point out your delightful trolling which has been apparent from you from Day 1.  I'm not ticked -- I usually pity people who have nothing better to do than bait.  And yes, I did report you.  I figure if you ran Mr. Charlie out, a great poster, someone needs to run you out.  You're not exactly the most popular one around after that, so watch your step.

However, because I'm not one to troll and bait, I'll make it up to you with this tid-bit in While My Guitar Gently Weeps:

"4:06, 4:22, 4:39

The pattern of the song up to the coda had the band hitting a D chord before each "weeps" (3:49) and then a C chord before each "weeps" in the next pass (4:06). But in the coda, this pattern becomes jumbled. At 4:06, the organ plays the wrong chord, a D, while the rest of band plays a C.

At 4:22, it becomes even worse. For years, I'd wondered why Paul's bass line sounds incorrect here. But upon closer inspection, it's the rest of the band that commits the error! At 4:22, Paul plays a D on the bass while the rest of the band plays a C. Given the pattern of the song thus far, Paul was correct. Notice also how, at 4:39, the rest of the band hits a D, while Paul hits a C! Paul's correct again!"

I like when they hit wrong chords. It makes it more interesting.
Didn't George play bass in Taxman? I thought he did and Paul took the lead guitar. I like almost all of Paul's bass playing,but it would bore me to death to listen to all the songs and just dissect the bass and then determine which one was the best. I'm glad the songs had other instruments and singing. Just bass playing wouldn't have been enough.

You didn't mess up, its just tough to pick a few when there's so much great stuff. I think alot of fans like us flip flop, you'll put down a few songs and then a few more hit you later on.

Doesnt Paul play both, bass and lead, on Taxman? Too much crap to remember with this band.

Speaking of not being able to play and sing at the same time,,,B.B. King cant at all. I always found that to be odd from one of the supposedly great blues players.

You could say that, but you need those satirical, witty lines from George  :)

They are always hitting wrong notes!!! lol...I'm So Tired is a classic where the chords seem to 'merge.' It seems to me they always picked takes that vibed rather than musical accuracy. I much prefer it this way...It gets all us fans talkin and deliberating and more importantly, wanting to listen to it again. lol

respect to those you of you who dissect the songs the way you do. Out of my league for sure, but I can see how you get off on it.
Shouldn't this unite you rather than cause you to bicker?

Agreed. I think one of the zillions of things that made them so brilliant is that they left in alot of mistakes, they didn't go for absolute perfection. For example, John using the "F" word on "Hey Jude", the the accidental bump on the guitar string during the final chord of "In My Life" that created a little buzz, etc. Most bands will do take after take, edit after edit to make it perfect, the Fabs certainly worked hard and did several takes of several songs, but minor imperfections be damned, they went with it. How cool is that?

I Want You is one of my absolute favorites (and I JUST listened to it actually) because of Paul's awesome bass work in it.
