Many of you know I am particularly enamored of the incredible music of The Beatles! Their debut in the US in 1964 on Ed Sullivan Show changed the course of my musical life forever! I’ve been arranging my own versions of their songs as solo fingerstyle guitar pieces for many many years now. I recently made a master list of all of The Beatles songs I have arranged for guitar and low & behold, the current number is….(drum roll)…50! That’s quite a few! Of course, I’m not in any immediate danger of running out of new songs to tackle! I believe in their short 7 years of recording together, they wrote something like 300+ songs!!
Two of my arrangements are featured on my solo CD, “GUITARtistry”, “No Reply” and “Something”.
