Still have goosebumps

Today I heard "Revolution" by The Beatles for the first time and it was so exciting I could hardly breath. That beginning with John Lennon screaming and the guitar going crazy--I didn't know The Beatles made songs like that, cuz I had only heard the lyrical and romantic ones . . . I know, I'm pretty clueless.

Could anyone tell me:

1. Is that John playing lead or George?
2. What kind of guitar and amp did they use?
3. How did they make that crunchy distortion?

All of a sudden I'm thinking . . . I gotta learn how to play electric guitar!

Re: Still have goosebumps

Lead wss Harrison.
I believe he was playing a Groetch(sp?) through a Marshall studio amp.
The distortion was probably a simple fuzz pedal.

It is is an outrageously cool song!


Hank's prosepctive gutiar player said: "Mr Williams, I'm not sure I can play for you, the onliest chords I know are C D & G"
Hank repleis, after a short pause: "Well, what else is there?"

Re: Still have goosebumps

They had many great songs after they found enlightenment in their later years recording.  It is indeed a great song.

Thanks for the info!  I've got to look up what a fuzz pedal is--sounds like fun.

mb john had a coarse voice,you should listen to him do Twist and shout. He did play guitar better then people thought,when they did the rootop concert in england that was him doing the lead guitar with a epiphone on Get back.

To this day it kills me that some banker called the cops and got the rooftop concert shut down. The last live appearance from the Beatles and some petty office worker had it stopped! That dude should be found and be the first inductee into the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Shame!

I totally agree with that,theperson should have been flogged with old guitar strings too!! That was one of the best live (TV) shows I have ever seen.

Wow! I can't believe this--I listened to Helter Skelter for the first time just yesterday and was blown away by it. Totally agree with you. I had no idea Paul McCartney was the father of Punk Rock!!

p.s. I don't really know anything about Punk, but Helter Skelter sounds like the way I imagine punk rock should sound.

Re: Still have goosebumps

mb I think when they wrote songs like that they were obligated too produce a certain amount of songs/albums,so alot of not sogood stuff got but into some albums,also I think they were doing drugs alot at the time. RE: HelterSkelter I still get goosebumps too when I see a video or here some of there music.

Maybe they were, dino, but so many of the popular musicians that I've been deeply touched by have been known or rumored to take drugs (or alcohol).  From Hank Williams to Willy Nelson, Bob Dylan to Neil Young,  Brian Wilson to Kurt Cobain etc.  Of course, the list of people is much, much, longer.

Re: Still have goosebumps

Yep, most of the good ones do or did drugs during their climb to the top.  Maybe that's how they got there.  It certain'y didn't hury their music for the most part.

I do not think I have heard of any of the sixties and up rock artists who have not done drugs at some point.

Re: Still have goosebumps

M.B.  A fuzz peadle ca be picked up pretty cheep. and I will say,, if you dive into electric, hold on tight and love the ride.  you can stay pretty and sweet or open up your dard and aggressive side.  checkout the Crue version of helter skelter... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bpk3llYo … ature=fvst  and a good inexpensive pedal,, http://www.walmart.com/ip/17655963?adid … mp;veh=sem  and you can go site to store on this. well made low price effects,  or this and it has all the basics you need for great fun, and you can not beat the price. + you can use your acoustic with a sound hole pick up and the EQ and reverb will be boss! http://www.walmart.com/ip/Behringer-Ped … gMethod=rr

Naw, that's ok, I thought it was funny in a sarcastic way. But seriously, when you think about all the influential music that has been made since the beginning of the rock era, how can anyone ever learn about it all? Thank goodness for youtube, cuz around here the classic rock station doesn't even come in until you drive out of the valley and dad only plays the polka station in the milking palor and barn (he swears the milch cows give more  if they listen to polka!) I don't have itunes or that stuff, so I depend on recommendations and happy surprises.

Re: Still have goosebumps

hi mb2, the beatles were known as the greatest little rock band as there were only 4 of them. they were known for playing VOX amps, i cant ever remember them playing MARSHALLS? i may be wrong. if you listen to their earlier albums, once you get past all the love-y dove-y stuff, there's a lot of raw rock and as the 60's drew on and heavy metal emerged you can hear the influence they had on that music too. most bands even nowadays will admit to beatle influence one way or another.

in my opinion, lennon went a little OTT in the 70's. and just to prove that mccartney is not all shmooze, have a listen to MEMORY ALMOST FULL, it's one of my favs.

PS why the change of name?  cows got the old one? lol

It was all in fun. Truly sorry if it did not come across as such.

It is hard to hear even a small bit of the music that is out today. None of the Rock stations in my area of SoCal play any new music of what was referred to in the old days (Pre-1990) as Album Oriented Rock. If a band is not a hot seller then you will have a hard time hearing them on the radio. I cannot remember the last time I heard a new Rush song on the radio. It seems that even the "Classic Rock" stations have a very limited playlist now days. There is one station out of San Bernardino/Redlands called KCAL. When I first moved to the area they were the station to go to for new AOR music or even just new rock. Now they are like every other rock station around: Classic rock with a limited playlist. heaven help you if you wanna hear some Korn, Tool or even Triumph.
