Pat Metheny: Covers Beatles And A Lot More

You guys are gonna think that I’m a Beatles freak or something… Well, I guess I am, as their music was just so melodic and meaningful. I think guitarist Par Metheny said something similar in this write-up of his…

“The Beatles were huge for me. Without them, I don’t know if I even would have become a musician or a guitar player. When their hits started coming out, I was 8 and 9 years old and it had a tremendous impact on me. I saw the movie “A Hard Day’s Night” multiple times when it came out and I always loved that song. It is kind of impossible to imagine doing a record like this without including at least one Beatles song.” – Pat Metheny

Pat is just such a cool guitarist-  he can be doing just the melody… and then take a hard left turn with a really wild chord out of left field . He does only one of these in this song… I guess he could have been doing it the whole time… (that’s called taste, isn’t it)?
