If You Love Music Like I Do...

All my life, I'm been excited about music - especially Rock music. When the Beatles hit the scene, all my friends and I immediately decided to be a rock star and got hold of a guitar (or the bass or drums). It was all we could talk about (in between girls, food, and sleep - we were teenagers, after all).


I gravitated to the bass because I liked Paul McCartney and I thought it would be easier to learn since it only had four strings.

I don't know if that's true - I know plenty of guitar players who try to play bass and can't make the transition (although some - Greg Lake comes to mind - did it tremendously well).


But I digress.


What I really want to talk about is something you might enjoy. A friend pointed out the youtube channel for Rick Beato to me.

Rick has several offerings on his channel, but my favorite is called "What makes this song great?" In this offering, Rick deconstructs some great songs and isolates some of the parts - sometimes vocals, sometimes the drum part, sometimes subtle guitar overdubs that you would never have heard otherwise. You'll hear some really unique things, and learn a little about how a song is recorded.

I won't say any more about it. I'll just leave you with Rick's YouTube post where he talks about my favorite song. You can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFisOTDzGuE

If you don't recognize the song right away, give it five minutes and you will.

I sincerely hope you enjoy this wonderful video, and check out some of Rick's other videos. Maybe he also features YOUR favorite song. Just search YouTube for "What makes this song great" and scroll down a little bit.

Cheers and Regards,

Kim
