Welcome Page

Welcome to this blog series where I am looking at the careers of the ex-Beatles, by that I mean their post-Beatles careers, at present looking into their albums.

This is a blog where I will not be posting constantly, as it is also a blog where I am recording my own versions of songs from the albums, in most cases probably the entire album in fact.  This is a time-consuming project, and I wouldn't want to short change the material.  That said however, there are obviously songs where, even as a fan, I am not too keen on them.  I will be honest with my opinion and that may not of course be your opinion. That is why everybody is different.

Not every post will look at the material in the same way, but I will talk about every piece on the albums.

To start with I am looking at the career of Paul McCartney, mostly because there is a fantastic book available called The Paul McCartney Chord Songbook which, although not a complete set of his songs, it has a great deal of material in there which is helpful.  It is in reality just a book where each song features chord boxes for all the chords at the start of the section on each song, and then the lyrics with the chords written above them.  As my friend Matt Blick says about the Beatles Songbook, you have to have heard the songs to be able to follow them from the book.  It is, however, the most concise book out there.  The others, unfortunately, have not been treated to the same degree.  They will require internet searches or even, god forbid, learning them by ear from the recordings themselves.

Here is a list then of the posts;
