Thought I'd create a thread where we could discuss, exchange knowledge on Beatles songs, chords, lyrics etc. amps, guitars etc.

I'm sure there is enough people round here who could make this a stimulating thread.

Tonight I've got a gig locally. Playing in a guitar duo. We also swap roles on the bass. I'm gonna be playin a few Beatle tracks.

Thought I'd share the ones I'll be probably be doin tonight. Normally, I'd drop a few from this particular list depending on the clientele, numbers etc. I'll post the 5 piece Apple Beatle set we do at a later date.

In no particular order...... (Brownie points for guessing the last one I do though. lol)

Me and another person played Two of Us for a friend's charity coffee house and it was my favourite song that we did. The vocal harmonies are just so nice and it's nice and easy for the most part.

Good luck with your gig!

Last thursday, we were having a practice, trying to shape some new riffs etc into actual songs..when I launched into Get Back..everyone else followed..and it was so enjoyable..we done a 20 minute version...with Paul-esq vocal improvs.

I haven't actually played any Beatles songs at a gig (seeing as how I've only done one) but I'm playing at an open mic night at a Coffee House tomorrow and doing two songs of my own and a Bob Dylan song complete with harmonica (The Times They Are a'Changing).  I'm excited.

For gigs its usual Let it Be, Hey Jude, and Lady Madonna, which is probably the best especailly for an group with a guitar piano and a bass and a cool sax intro.

I'd like to say thank you on behalf of the group and ourselves, and I hope we pass the audition.

I'm singing/playing guitar at the annual Kintyre Farm concert at this summer, and one of the songs I am playing is, well... guess.

Nice one guys...I did Things We Said Today/Golden Slumbers, Two of Us and finished with Hey Jude.

The harmonies in Two of Us are magic to sing. It's the lush 'out ahead' harmony that really gets me.

I would love to do Lady Madonna. The backing vocals (ba, ba, ba's) and that awesome Ronnie Scott sax solo bit have always put me off doing a proper cover of it.

Good luck with your gig Harrison. I hope the times they are a changin for ya!! lol

Did you sing the bit about  mammy not liking that in Get Back Indy? lol

I take on the role of macca normally in the 5pce Beatle band I do, so I tend to stick to that. Also my voice warms to his range more. Not that there are not many Lennon songs I'd like to do. I may start slipping some in the duo set now you have raised the question.

I posted this elsewhere, but in case you didn't see it, here is an excellent book on all the Beatles gear--stage, studio--everything. Highly recommended.

I can't decide whether to put new strings on the viola bass for the upcoming gig...I love that old dampened, lifeless sound. Same strings since I bought the bass nearly 2 yrs ago. hehehehe

What would you guys do?

Hmm, I always thought leaving my old Fender Strings on gave it a more 'interesting' sound..but after slapping some RS 66 Swing Bass strings on...it sounds amazing!

Yes...On my Precision, I occasionally change them. When I used to gig a lot with my Warwick, I used to change the strings every 3/4 gigs.

Boiling em could be cool. I mean Macca used freekin piano strings!!!! lol
