I've calculated at the rate I learn songs we should have a pretty good dent in this list by 2097

You guys should do an all instrumental version of A Day in the Life. I would do it, but as Jody knows by now I'm very slow with putting together performance vids. So I'd love to see you guys do that. Oh, and I guess I should have said this first, are you taking requests?

I was thinking of just doing John's two parts, I don't really like the Mccartney bit in there. One guitar for the progression, one to mimic John's vocals one drummer, and if you want to add piano the piano bits seem pretty easy. Also, you could totally fake the end part without an orchestra.

One of my favorite contributors "Treebeard" also has thrown his hat into the ring. That makes the current roster:

schnuffi
Mikedem
Ian
Jody
zaxxaz
Treebeard
JJrocker


I will shout out privately to others that make performance vid's to see if they also want to be part of this Historical event! All are welcome.

I hope to form teams within the next few weeks once we have identified the initial participants. My expectation is others will trickle in as this moves forward. The songs will begin from 1950 - 1959 and progress forward to the present time.

To make this a reasonable anthology perhaps 10 songs per decade? Any thoughts on this are most welcome. I will be sending out a list of suggested songs everyone can vote on or add to.

Just as an FYI I am trying to get my old bass player "Donny" to join in. It would be great to add another bassist. That's all for now folks!

Peace out,

JJ

Can I be part of the ten songs per decade which aren't Beatles songs?
