John Lennon : double-tracked lead vocals, rhythm guitar Paul McCartney : harmony vocals, bass, lead guitar George Harrison : rhythm guitar Ringo Starr : drums, tambourine, handclaps. Available on: Help! Ticket To Ride was the first song to be released from Help!
The song was written by Lennon and McCartney, although the precise nature of their contributions has been disputed. In one of his final interviews, Lennon claimed it as mainly his work. In his authorised biography, published inMcCartney claimed the song to have been more of a collaborative effort. Another suggestion is that the title refers to sexually-transmitted diseases, and was inspired by the prostitutes encountered by The Beatles during their time performing in Germany. He could have been joking — you always had to be careful with John like that — but I certainly remember him telling me that.
Ticket To Ride was Ticket To Ride - The Beatles - The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl soundtrack to a key scene in the Help! Filmed on the ski slopes of Obertauern, Austria on 20 Marchit was a forerunner Ticket To Ride - The Beatles - The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl the music videos which would later become widespread. PS for all songs : When you write guitar it would be great if you wrote Consort XXIV - Segréis de Lisboa - A Música No Tempo De Camões kind of guitar.
Especially if it is acoustic or electric. Same for bass guitar. Paul plays the bluesy leads on the Casino. There is NO 12 string on Tix to Ride.
Listen to the song. Maybe someone should listen to the song. He does, and so does George. Not even close. The solo after the bridge is a 6 string. How about also digging out the information for what type of guitar, whether Rickenbacker Jetglo or Rickenbacker Jet-glo for examples. But Beatlesbible. I would definitely love something like that, but only whenever you get the time. The extra knowledge really adds another level of appreciation and wonder for all of their accomplishments.
Ticket to Ride… the drone maybe derived from Indian music. I rank this as in the top ten Beatles songs ever. John claims it as mainly his song, Paul cites the amount of time he spent working on it. How many of the words did John have done before Paul came in? What else might he have contributed? Did he have a hand in the middle? Maybe he suggested the fadeout? Ticket To Ride - The Beatles - The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl are two other guitars in the song, both Fender Stratocasters John on rhythm, George on via an overdub.
Is this not the coolest record ever?! So sweeet all the way around! Total nonsense, they are pretty wonderful, and everyone raved about them when the record came out. The drum rolls in ticket to ride sound like a old time ticket printing machine especially the one in the middle of the song around 1m 53s and really throughout the song the drums sound like the same ticket printing machine but as if the machine were slowed down. Or is it just me? It was quite radical at the time. Interestingly, the Shangri-las song gets slightly slower in the coda, whereas The Beatles played theirs in double time.
Just listened to it on YouTube. Nice song. Seems to have been influenced by it. Like you say, not a rip-off. Hello, The Beatles are a part of my life for the last forty years. All the John vs. Paul discussion is strange to me. The real awesome power of the Beatles is the O Genio - Roberto Carlos - Vol.
II combination. Then in the studio was the added input of George Harrison to the arrangements and of course. George Martin. A great Beatles single.
I love the scene in the film Help! Whilst it is a collaborationto me this is more of a Lennon song. And when I make the comment about theme differences I am talking particularly about the period.
Never knew they were following anyone too closely, seemed to be leading. Second to none, the sound — track of a generation. Another fantastic jangling-era stunner. Nothing sounded like this. They were at the top of their game, with so much more yet to Struttin With Some Barbecue - The Dukes Of Dixieland - The Dukes Of Dixieland. That about Eleanor Rigby is uninteresting.
Lennon only commented the lyrics not the melody. I never believe a word of what McCartney is saying. When it comes to comments by Johann just consider the source as he is more than a little biased. Johan never clarifys.
Never cites sources, quotes, or factual data. Just his own twisted, biased flights of fancy. Take it with a gallon or two of salt. Pretty much all of it. Does anyone else notice the little flourish mistake John Lennon made at the last verse? It is a true hollow-body electric. As a Lefty, I can pick up a righty guitar and play it. Not as good as I can a Lefty but given time a Lefty can play a righty guitar. Just comes with the territory.

Because John sang it, you might have to give him 60 per cent of it. I think the interesting thing was a Another Day - Three Man Army - A Third Of A Lifetime ending: instead of ending like the previous verse, we changed the tempo.
We almost invented the idea of a new bit of a song Ticket To Ride - The Beatles - The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl the fade-out with this song; it was something specially written for the fade-out, which was very effective but it was quite cheeky and we did a fast ending. Ticket To Ride was slightly a new sound at the time. It was pretty fucking heavy for then, if you go and look in the charts for what other music people were making.
