Brilliant vid and brilliant song Georges best imo
always reminds me of the winegums adverts in the uk
OMG, fendertele, it's almost identical to the winegum advert - good eye/ear! I wonder if the same producer did both ... anyone know if this is the case (I did a quick google search and didn't find anything)?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Got_My_Mind_Set_on_You
Interesting to note that the song was written in 1962, I think George has said that was the happiest musical period of his life, nice that he went back to that. Also interesting to note that the dancer in the break is a young Bob Geldof, easy to see when you look for it*. Finally, apparently the last #1 in the US for any Beatle ... go George!
Hey Fendertele ... it seems that George is playing the 3 chords of the song in about a million different ways on the fretboard. Are all those fingerings legit, or is it "miming" to an excessive degree? If it is real (which I suspect), is it that impressive that he knows all those ways to play the same chords, or is that pretty much expected to be in every experienced guitarist's skill set? I remember there was a song in the 80s, "Shieks of Sultan" I think, had a line like "Guitar George, he knows all the chords", I always wondered if this was an homage to our George ...
*Just kidding about that being Bob Geldof, but it looks like him a bit! The Wikipedia link gives the name I think, some guy named Tony Blair ...
