GUITAR WORLD PRESENTS THE ULTIMATE GUIDE
TO THE RECORDINGS, SONGS AND GEAR OF THE BEATLES
IN THE HOLIDAY 2011 ISSUE
Beatles fans rejoice! Guitar World presents the ultimate guide to the recordings, songs and gear of the Beatles, the group that revolutionized not only rock and roll but also the recording studio. The issue is devoted to an in-depth examination of the Fab Four’s 13 albums – from Please Please Me to Let It Be – and includes commentary culled from original interviews with Beatles producer George Martin and engineers Geoff Emerick and Alan Parsons. The issue explores the Beatles through their gear, as well as the unique recording equipment in Abbey Road Studios that captured their sounds and forever changed music.
Each Beatles album is explored in detail, from the story behind its creation to the guitars and amps used in its making. George Harrison’s Rickenbacker 360 12-string guitar used on A Hard Day’s Night and numerous other classic-era songs, as well as his custom-made rosewood Fender Telecaster, famously used during the making of Let It Be. Guitar World tells the stories behind selected tracks from each album including “I Saw Her Standing There,” “Ticket to Ride,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” and others.
The Holiday 2011 issue of Guitar World is available on newsstands now and on Apple Newsstand for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
