PoppaGator I think you are missing my initial argument on why some folkies have an aversion to the songs of The Beatles. In an earlier posting I referred to "the three chord Kumbaya Brigade" who could never dream of playing a song like "Blackbird" or "Across The Universe" and so they shun it all.You say "easy playability" I say; I have heard probably hundreds of interpretations of "Norwegian Wood" yet I have never heard it done: as on "Rubber Soul". In the book "Revolution In The Head" by Ian McDonald it states the song is performed in E but without a capo and,as far as he can tell, without speeding up or slowing down the tape (as was practised at that time) and he and the experts are at a loss as to how the song is actually played by Lennon. I call it artistry and musicianship, and considering the lyric also, genius. A 1960s folk song that is far from "easily playable". I should know; I can get as close as damnit and I have had to play it in D for over twenty years as do most others and this is easier to play than "Blackbird" etc.Think again PoppaGator!
