The Beatles is one of the most overrated yet underrated bands, it is a status that is very confusing. Paul McCartney, is one of the most underrated bass player in the industry, only a few notice his melodic Bass Playing. Ringo Starr is like Paul McCartney, left-handed and underrated. Ringo StarrÂ’s singing skills may not be underrated but his drumming skills are far superb, many drummers aspire to achieve his style of playing. Even a non-drummer can appreciate his drumming. Ringo Starr not o...

The Beatles have released numerous of songs, some of which appealed to the general public, whilst others didnÂ’t become as popular as other records. This makes some of The Beatles songs very underrated, these songs generally became underrated because they do not appeal to pop music but in reality these underrated songs can be considered The BeatlesÂ’ best songs of all time.

While it’s often thought by many that without Bob Dylan, Joan Baez may have never found her way to public prominence and fame, in reality, it may well have been just the opposite. By 1963 when the unknown Dylan appeared at the Newport Folk Festival with Baez (where the two performed the Dylan song "With God on Our Side”), it was her name that headlined the bill; her talent the crowd has come to experience. Behind the scenes, the two had already became romantically involved and Joan had...

Was it “Protest Rock”? Was it a new amalgamation of Elvis and the Folk revival started by the Kingston Trio? Was it simply Rock with attitude--no matter what the style of musical accompaniment? Did any and all rebellion-oriented music qualify? Did it have to be multi-dimensional and full of poetic expression? The first band that seemed to fit all the requisite criteria was The Byrds, whose rendition of Dylan’s “Mr. Tambourine Man” released in 1965 gave the listening publ...

From Greenwich Village to Haight-Ashbury, Folk music was the medium by which social injustice was voiced--with Bob Dylan leading the chorus. But then in 1965 at Newport Folk Festival as his popularity peaked, things suddenly took an unexpected turn. As Dylan took the stage now carrying an electric--not acoustic--guitar, he was booed off the stage--labeled a sell-out and traitor to the cause for abandoning simple, traditional values. Leaving the stage in tears, Dylan feared he may never recove...

Although there seems to be some disagreement as to who built the first commercial “fuzz” box, the first purpose-designed commercial distortion unit is credited to the Maestro Corporation (made by Gibson) who in 1962 made the "Fuzz Tone" Model FZ-1 commercially available. Although sales were minimal for the first three years, that all changed in 1965 with the release of the Rolling Stones’ monster hit “Satisfaction” on which Keith Richards had prominently showcased the devise...

Although most American kids of the 1950s had grown up with Elvis, Little Richard, and Jerry Lee Lewis, their mounting confusion about the state of AmericaÂ’s social scene as the 60s dawned wasnÂ’t sufficiently represented by these early rockers. Socially-conscious college kids were searching for music that addressed their concerns about the status quo that by their thinking had long been in dire need of reform. Folk music--traditionally the voice of social issues--was the most logical.

Despite Black artists’ long established roots in Rock music, the 1950s brought what many music historians view as an unprecedented White/Black role reversal in the American popular music scene. This seeming role reversal was promoted by the fact that top-selling Black artists of the day like Fats Domino (“Ain’t That a Shame”), Chuck Berry (“Maybellene”), and Johnny Mathis (“Chances Are”) had geared their music primarily to White audiences, and by R&B groups like ...

Although the first officially designated “Blues” music didn’t appear until the turn of the 20th century, music historians find it easy to trace Blues to post-Civil War social development, the Black declaration of true emancipation--the ability to travel freely across the highways and byways of America for the first time since the mid- 17th century. Thus the Blues came to tell stories of the plight of the Black man in search of work, food and money, as well as his search for love, se...

First experienced by many aspiring rock guitar players of the 60s in ClaptonÂ’s now iconic lead break in the psychedelic rock song "White Room" or Hendrix's "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)," the Wah-Wah "Cry Baby" remains a mainstay for all rock guitarists who base their style in the 60s and 70s.

The Beatles have done a lot of experiments while recording songs, some of these included adding Studio Effects and Studio Gimmicks which later resulted to contributions to Pop Music as a whole. Because of these experiments, The Beatles had a hard time whether which take will be considered the best, this resulted too many variations on the songs by The Beatles.

As explained in Music Theory 101: Chromatic and Major Diatonic Scales (the first in this series), music theory is essentially a mathematical approach to explaining the structural nuts and bolts of music--though you needn't be a mathematician to understand it. In the first of this series, we discussed the construction of Chromatic and Major Diatonic Scales. Here we will expand out understanding into the realm of Minor Scales.

There are many songs Paul McCartney wrote to pay tribute to his fatherÂ’s style of music. His father is musically inclined and also invited Paul McCartney to do the same. Most of the songs in the Beatles catalogue can be easily distinguished as a tribute to his father's style of music.

Paul McCartney, a prolific songwriter and a good bass player is also known for writing “cheesy” songs despite of his amazing talent. John Lennon hated Paul McCartney’s “granny” music and went far to not even participate in the recordings of Paul McCartney’s songs. While in the Beatles Paul McCartney sang and composed numerous songs which can be considered “cheesy”.
