Artist: Beatles Song: Cry For A Shadow
Cry for a Shadow The Beatles
G Harrison & J Lennon
Recorded on 22nd June 1961 this is a unique Beatles tune in being: the only known Harrison/Lennon composition, the first Beatles composition to be recorded professionally and the first one to appear on record (on Tony Sheridan's 1962 German album 'My Bonnie' where they were the backing band). George and John originally composed the tune when Rory Storm requested they play a recent Shadows number. Since they were always having a bit of fun with the Shadows sound and image they made up a Shadows type number on the spot. The working title of the tune was 'Beatle Bop' but George later changed it to Cry for a Shadow (a reference to the tune's original inspiration). For an authentic sound look to a Rickenbacker 325 for lead and a Gibson ES-175 for rhythm. The Gibson belonged to Sheridan but was used by the Beatles on a number of tracks. Notation guide included below with chord definitions.
