  1. David at it again, reharmonising is cool cool saw it first from jacob collier. Pls do a vid on him

  2. Wow, you just released a nearly hour-long iceberg and now you’re uploading again. It isn’t often that one of my favorite content creators uploads regularly. Thank you for the serotonin

  3. I was just thinking about this song while listening to Tally Hall’s “Misery Fell”. Misery Fell samples Elenor Rigby’s verse melody, so the songs sound extremely similar. Spooky

  4. Great lesson, minor gripe. why do all of you guys run to the Beatles for these lessons/ideas.

    1. I think theory is best taught using songs that are familiar to the student, and lots of people are familiar with The Beatles 😊 add to that that they are my favourite band. 😊

    2. @David Bennett Piano yeah not disagreeing. just that where i’m from and my background, beatles arent as revered as various soul bands, southern blues artists, and southern gospel acts(which are their actual influences) which all have these concepts in abundance. as i said though, great lesson and im appreciative that you take the time out to teach it to people.

  5. Man you should be a teacher at some university. Your way of explaining and presenting to us are next level! Cheers from Croatia🇭🇷 from a huge fan of The Beach Boys and The Beatles🙌🏻

  6. Dunno.. I wonder what you think yourself if you listen back to this in a few months with fresh ears. The “boss level” doesn’t really convince me, the progression itself sounds pretty much without direction, at least to me, and the melody doesn’t really sit with it. Can’t help thinking you haven’t listened to it yourself with fresh ears before publishing.

    1. I have listened to it various times with fresh ears. Of course it doesn’t sit as well with the melody as a E minor progression would, but it still works. Sometimes though you have to try and listen to it as if you’ve never heard the melody in any other context before, which of course is hard!

    2. sounds good to me, make sure you listen with headphones or capable speakers

  7. The Greatest song of all time and the song that got me into The Beatles.

  8. I love it when it was in A and Am. The last one was really good. Like a better version of the original, sadder. Except for the C7. I totally don’t feel that 🙂

  9. This is a pretty cool exercise and I really do I like how some of these sound, especially level 2 and 3 for me result in the most interesting melody which “makes sense”, for lack of a better word. But it also shows, just like with many of George Colier’s pieces, than in music complexity doesn’t always translate into a better experience, and sometimes less (e.g. less complex) is more, as the levels 6 and 7 don’t really sit well with me, to be honest.
