The Beatles write about many things, they somewhat seem to write randomly like for example, a song about “Her Majesty”. They range from the things that happened around them, things that inspired them aside from love and etc. The Beatles seem to write their songs as if it were their second nature.

Because of the musical genius behind the songs and collaborations of the members of the Beatles, we can consider some songs by the Beatles as incredible masterpieces or an underrated piece of art. But because of excessive studio effects and gimmicks they can be very annoying and sometimes disliked by the majority of the public, depending on their taste.

As a professional touring and studio guitarist for nearly 40 years, I urge beginners to be very choosy about which videos and other instructional information you follow from the Internet. Remember: ANYONE can post here and claim to be an authority on a given subject. Choosing the wrong instruction can not only set you on the wrong path, it can instill ideas and techniques that will be extremely difficult to erase from your mind and body once you realize you gleaned them from individuals who have...

On October 16, 1965, the Beatles were invited to Buckingham Palace to receive MBE medals from the Queen: Members of The Most Honorable Order of The British Empire. Then on March 11, 1997, Paul McCartney (the Beatle who 32 years before joked that the band had smoked a joint in the palace toilets before meeting the Queen), returned to the palace to be knighted for helping revolutionize pop music, as one of the most successful songwriters in history, becoming Sir Paul.

After having the skill to distinguish the pitches in between notes and the ability to differentiate and pinpoint one note from each other, you can then proceed to learning a piece itself. Keep in mind that you still have to learn music theory; this gives you a very good edge when using your ear. You only use your ears to avoid reading sheet music and manuscripts. Music Theory will help you understand and appreciate the use of your ears when learning a song.

Beginning in 1989, Ringo and producer David Fishof came up with the concept of a rotating line-up of world-famous musicians who would tour under the name Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band, a brainstorm that has resulted in eleven variations of his All-Starr Band where, as Ringo has explained, "everybody on stage is a star in their own right." During an All-Starr Band concert, Ringo performs some of his solo and Beatles songs, and then allows each band member to perform hits from their own ca...

Classical musicians especially pianists usually learn a piece by written musical notation which can be read in sheet music and manuscripts. The other way to learn how to play the piano, specifically a piece is by using your ears. This method has been used by musicians long before musical notation was introduced. Playing by your ears is a natural way and expressionistic way of playing a piece; it may not sound exactly like the original piece but more like a personal touch to a piece.

Aside from sexual references, the Beatles also used drug references to pay tribute to their recreational activity. Bob Dylan is responsible for introducing recreational drugs to the Beatles. Bob Dylan misheard the lyrics “I can’t hide”, he heard “I get high” of the Beatles’ song: I Want to Hold your Hand. Honest mistake but it caused the Beatles getting introduced to drugs after Bob Dylan slipped a few.

John Lennon of the Beatles is very witty; he is responsible for the name The Beatles itself. The Beatles is somewhat a double meaning pun which can mean the bug, or the rhythmic “beat” used in music. As the Beatles’ song writing prowess improves, they have also added double meaning to their songs, not counting the drug references.

Tips for better singing! Learning to sing can be, and is, a pleasant experience. And once you have crossed the border line of accomplishing this skill it is all downhill. In other words, practising becomes easier and seeing results makes all past effort worthwhile. Once you have started on first row of building blocks all it takes is the time to build the skill. But the essential key is preparing an initial good foundation.

Good Artists Copy, Great Artists Steal. The Beatles also used this technique, but not entirely, they still added their own flavours to the concepts other musicians used making them unique and better. Some of the concepts the Beatles “borrowed” are sometimes undetectable; they may sound vague but familiar. Seasoned listeners with wide knowledge could easily point out which concepts the Beatles “borrowed”.
