I am really enjoying this -- extremely well done documentary on George Harrison. It's on Netflix! Give it a go!  O0

This guy is truly amazing. His youtube channel consists of these mind-blowing covers of Beatles songs, and this one is certainly the most impressive:

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/ZzJbFJkfZ6I" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/ZzJbFJkfZ6I</a>

But equally outstanding is this cover of "Dig a Pony," which is a song I've always liked a lot, but now I just love it. It's just a cover of the lead and rhythm guitars (originally played Harrison and Lennon respectively), and in the Beatles recording you can't hear the lead guitar all that well, so hearing it like this has just opened my eyes to this song. If you listen to it, make sure to read his description. He's so exact with his covers.

He does a similar cover of Get Back that's great too, and it's notable for being one of the few Beatles songs where John plays the lead guitar part.

The movie Yellow Submarine will be coming back to the theatres this summer for its 50th anniversary. I don't see anything listed yet for my area, which might be a bad sign, but I definitely want to see it if I can. Here's the website:
