THE BEATLES

THE BEATLES

What is there left to say about The Beatles? The four young lads from Liverpool conquered the world and became arguably the most popular musical act in history.

John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr took us all on an artistic and cultural odyssey through the 1960s, and created a body of work that is unmatched for its variety and impact.

Nothing lasts forever, and the creative fire and expressive personalities that led to their vast success as a band eventually drove The Beatles apart. But they were not done. All four went on to experiment, record and perform on their own. And while that music may not have attained the same level of worldwide acclaim that the band's classic hits did, it was still inventive and significant in its own right.

We offer transcription and how-to-play books covering the whole wild journey of The Beatles. And in our newest collection, Aidan Hampson has transcribed basslines for some of the best music the boys made after the group disbanded. Have a look.
