GUEST,Sidewinder. Beatles and Folk music (103* d) RE: Beatles and Folk music 24 Feb 05

Thanks for the clarification PoppaGator it does seem we sometimes find it difficult to put into print "what we are actually trying to say" and I do mean we. I have tried several different tuning methods and capo placings.However, nothing really registers as the original article.I always think when people (including myself) play "Norwegian Wood" it is just "painting by numbers" and I like to think that the recording is a flourish of inspired genius that Lennon himself would struggle to recapture. I often wondered why they never even attempted to perform it "live" when they did an electrified "Yesterday" etc.It is (I think we all agree now?) a classic folk song even if it isn't traditional.Beatles folk agree anyway!
