Phil!! Thanks so much for your invite. I know few people where I am that play. Great page you have here!

Thanx, Phil

What a GREAT idea! The only thing I would have wished for on it would have been, had he played the same tune on all 3 for what I thought would give the best comparison.

Hey Phil,

thanks for the invite. Happy to contribute if I can to the band idea. I'm short on recording equipment at the moment, but feel free to move the process along without me....I'll catch up.

Hi Phil

Thanks for the comment, I  intended to learn back in 2009, but, had a problem with cancer, and had nothing but health problems since, so now I'm hoping to try again.

I think with al these guitars I should be able to play something lol.

My options are limited, as I can't really get about much!

Any Ideas as to how to go about this, I really am a beginner.

Thanks Again

Paul

Thanks Phil, I really need to get rid of a few!  I have been trying to post a video (my first one) on the Beatles site, but it is upside down on my computer, and can't seem to turn it around.  I wil leventually  figure it out! - your friend- Mark Young

Phil - Thanks for joining the Beatles group. I have had a lot of trouble getting this on board and it still won't accept the photo I'm trying to load nor will it accept the text. When I do enter those, I am asking all who post here NOT to mention the name of the derranged piece of trash who murdered John Lennon. I want to recall and honor their music and discuss their lives - not the one who murdered John. His name should not be remembered. I truly hope you agree with this one thing I ask of folks at this group.
Thanks again - Michael

Come on, Phil - you're cool!  All opinions welcomed by me!

Not sayin' I'll agree with all of 'em - and I mean from all/any of us - but I defend your right to say what you feel/think/believe...

:-)
