The Cigar Box Beatles!!








"The Cigar Box Beatles Collective"


My Rhythm track for the song, claim and record a verse and post it up!


Revised and tidied up version - if anybody can add a lead guitar it will be much appreciated! (-:







Here's an example !


Remember the count-in cue is longer than on the original Beatle version just to give it a bit of space, 4 riffs then on the above example.

REMEMBER just your voice, nothing else, though double-tracking is ok!


1. Slowpaw Steve T

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world

2. 407 bug
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world

3. c#merle
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out

Don't you know it's gonna be all right
All right, all right

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan


You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're doing what we can

7. Sugimugi

But when you want money
For people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait

Don't you know it's gonna be all right
All right, all right

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah...

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head

You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead

11. Chris Portillo
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow

12. Henry Strat-o-varius Lowman
Don't you know it's gonna be... all right
All right, all right
All right, all right, all right

I'll set the ball rolling with "Dear Prudence", a FAB song with loads of possibilities for some interesting Studio effects and harmonies...! (-:


Great idea, Steve!  I can't play for sh*t, so this isn't a claim, it's a request for anyone:

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

In My Life


Here Comes The Sun


PS - It would also be great if each artist contributing could post tabs/chords for their submission!

Also just a suggestion, but a blues version of I'll Cry Instead would be pretty cool.

do it, Dan!

I would like to redo one of these:

Helter skelter

and or

She was just 17.. ..

Bagsey "Helter skelter" then....thanks for the invite Slowpaw Steve....
