Interesting.

Quite interesting instruction in the works of Lennon/McCartney specific songs. Delivery could have been a bit more enthusiastic, found this a bit dry - but I did enjoy the little tidbits of information about the songs and their composers. Appears to be aimed at beginners of the instrument.

Misleading title, otherwise good

Seems like this author is one of the last people to learn the truth. Lennon/McCartney didn't write these songs. Lennon/McCartney wrote simplistic 2 and 3 chord ditties, typical of the musically untrained. The bulk of work credited to L/M was actually written by classically trained composers, using motifs found in popular classical music. TRUE! Don't tear yourself up because you can't duplicate their "genius", their genius was staged.
