    Funny to watch John forget a line in Don't Let Me Down during the rooftop performance.

    It was the opposite of a buzzkill to see that for me. I mean Yesterday started out as Scrambled eggs and this movie shows exactly why that was. I think the larger meaning developed from their vocal exercises like when they would sing it with a German accent or with their teeth clenched. It was huge for me.

    Paul was an incredible musician, very accomplished on piano, guitar, Bass, drums and much more. Paul is no slouch on guitar and plays several solos during the Beatles career, including Taxman. Most incredible to me is his ability to pick up the other band members guitars and play them upside down.

    Yes i noticed that a few times. Wondered if they were restrung or not but then realized they had no time to do that. He was just playing them upside down. Crazy!!

    Yes, that totally floored me when he just grabbed the rosewood Tele and casually did a Dick Dale thing.

    Yea, it was surprising to see that many of their lyrics were stream of consciousness rather than well thought out. I like that actually.

    Setup a PC with HDMI port in the video card to your TV. That is how all of ours are set up.

    Thanks for the tip regarding the Petty Wildflowers documentary on YouTube. I watched it last night. Enjoyed it quite a bit. Well worth the 1.5 hour commitment.

    As a side note, I was struck by the way they would just leave their instruments lying around all over the place. Lying on the floor, tossed onto a chair, leaning on anything, oops falling over. Not a stand in sight.

    They like you, now put your PJ's back on and play with all of your imaginary friends. When they go away the nurse will bring you more pills.:(

    George couldn’t understand how Clapton could improvise a lead part and make it sound as though it was rehearsed. It’s Funny how far guitar players have come since then especially considering that almost nothing really new has come about on the guitar since Hendrix. I mean, now you have tens of thousands of shredders who can improvise circles around some of those guys from the 60’s. Guitar playing used to be an exclusive club now it’s a meme.

    I've seen the first two parts. Drags a bit at times, but really amazing overall.
    Watching Paul just randomly come up with classic Beatles tunes was pretty incredible.
    As for Yoko, after all I've heard and read over the years, I was surprised at how low-key, unobtrusive and sometimes even cute she was...until she starts "singing" that is...

    Same situation here, I got Disney+ mainly just to watch the Beatles. Every word I can’t hear at first, I rewind and analyze. My wife could care less, so I had to find times where she is not watching some thing already. I love the part, where George is talking about wanting to improve his soloing and wanting to play more like Eric.

    Watch in order. Beato references the "Naked Sessions":






    Apologies: I didn't realize until I just now finished listening to the "Naked Sessions" that it's suffixed with Korean sounding ballads. :eek::confused: The last Beatles tune, Let It Be", ends before the 36 minute mark.

    It’s so true. Those guys were just figuring it out for the first time. Inventing it even with only the guys around them to learn from. No Marty Schwartzes in the internet spelling it out for you.

    I guess a lot of people prefer Paul’s singing voice, but I love John, I love how raw his vocals are when he really digs in.

    I don't agree with Mr. Beato on everything, but I do like Sir Paul's mix much more than Phil Spector's. It's become sort of the "real" Let It Be to me.

    I only linked Beato's review to give context to the "Naked Sessions" of Let It Be.
