  1. same beard XD

  2. Circle of fifth

  3. Would love to see how to play Jump as done by Roddy Frame slowed down melancholy acoustic version

  4. A little trivia; when John Lennon was writing In My Life, it was going to be a longer song, with more verses, about the way Liverpool was changing, and nostalgia for the city he grew up in. Therefore the love he spoke of in the song was not for a woman, but for his home town.

  5. I'll need to give this a go. I usually play it in the key of G. It's a truly beautiful song, and one of Lennon's finest in my estimation.

    I only hope I can play it without choking up. In My Life was my eldest sister's song. She passed away in 2001, and this song always brings back the loss.

    Lennon: best lyricist. Most pure and honest lyrics and most raw and pure vocals of anybody in rock. Most important contributer to modern music there was. Flawed, honest, broken and real. We were blessed by his presence. Unfortunately those mutherfuckers in control saw him as a threat and took him out…
