The “Beatles” was formed in the summer of 1962 and from that moment on John Lennon and Paul McCartney, created a pop legend that (not even the band themselves ) could have imagined the impact they were about to create. The boys from Liverpool, where they crafted their talent and took the musical world by storm.
The “Beatles” had enormous talent individually and collectively and also had the drive to reach there goals. Under the leadership of Brian Epstien the band would criss cross the country on an endless tour of one night stands.
As it turned out this meeting would be more beneficial to the band. Astrid and Klaus group of friend were much more cultures than the locals and they were “The Artsy Crowd”and the boys took more from them, then they learnt from the band.
Ringo did not write at all. John and Paul did make it a point, out of kindness or a novelty to make sure he had one song on every album. Every one would have at least one song on every album. In the beginning for Ringo, they choose standards such as “Honey Don’t” an old Carl Perkins standard or “Act Naturally” by Johnny Russell/Vonie Harrison which was a phenomenal choice for both songs. I cant picture John Paul or George pulling either art jamming workshop of these off any better. In the end they were able to pen such songs as ‘Yellow Submarine” “Octopus’s Garden” and “With a Little Help From my Friends’ for Ringo to sing.
The reason music is so accessible is obvious. You don’t need any equipment, you don’t need a special set of paints and brushes, you don’t need a rock and a couple years to chisel away at it. Your raw emotions powered by your human soul, and something to make any kind of sound with is all you need.
It was during this trip Stu fell deeply in love with Astrid, and though they could not speak more than a few words to each other, due to the language barrier. They had become engaged. Stu would leave the band and stay in Germany and Paul took over duties on Bass.
“I didn’t have time to rehearse” is the worst excuse you can have. And I hear it continuously. To help cure this, schedule your practice session into your day the same as other “have-to’s”. Classes, work, prepare dinner, put the kids into bed, practice guitar. If it’s important to you, treat it like that.
If you have any desire whatsoever to play the acoustic guitar, there really is no reason why you can’t get started today. Once you get a decent enough guitar, and a course or set of lessons that you are comfortable with, you’ll be up and playing in no time. You’ll join the growing ranks of those who, throughout time, have added a great deal to our human culture.
