YESTERDAY: Memories of a Beatles Fan
YESTERDAY: Memories of a Beatles Fan
Price: £3.22

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet memoir from John's "No 1 Fan", 27 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I downloaded this memoir having read a very positive review on the Meet the Beatles For Real website. Margaret Hunt writes in great detail about being one of the earliest Beatles fans (before the screaming started) and conveys the excitement and obsession of her teenage self. I confess I skipped through the non Beatles aspects of Margaret's story (sorry!) And there is quite a lot of repetition which I skipped too, but there are some real nuggets - especially her memories of John Lennon who was her favourite. Her memories of John are very sweet and naive as befits a nice girl from the era. She has almost total recall of what John said ... Plus a few things Paul and George said ... But don't ask about Ringo! She didn't approve of Ringo replacing Pete Best (and seems unaware of the fact that it was George Martin who insisted on a new drummer, not the Beatles). Her descriptions of locations like the Cavern are vivid and valuable but I think the most important thing about this book is the insight into the fan's view of the Beatles' rise from local group to nationwide phenomenon.

For all it's limitations, I enjoyed the book and the fab cover picture of "Marg No 1 Fan" with John is worth the £3 download fee on its own!

4.0 out of 5 stars good selection of simple tunes, 5 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good selection of simple American traditional folk/country/blues tunes. All tunes have full musical notation plus tabs for ukulele - most have a tab for the basic tune plus a tab for finger style picking. The tabs are fairly simple - ideal fora beginner like me (but nowhere near as complex as Colin Tribe!). Good for a finger picking beginner.

5.0 out of 5 stars love this music!, 5 April 2015
I downloaded this album having "discovered" Aaron & Nicole through their YouTube videos and ukulele books/tutorials. I love this pared down folk/Americana music and the simple, honest musicianship that is on display here is great. I've been listening to these recordings for a couple of weeks now and they have got under my skin now even though I was ignorant of most of the songs before. I particularly love the sound of Nicole's voice when she sings lead and I hope she does more of this. I know they sell their recordings directly from their website but it's good that they are available on Amazon so they are accessible togeneral buyers like me in the UK. Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this book - there are so many great tunes in it of varying degrees of difficulty so you never get bored. This "leap year" edition has an added feature on A FEW songs - tabs that help you finger pick familiar riffs on famous tunes (e.g. Beatles Nowhere Man and And I Love Her). As a beginner, this is useful for me and it's a thrill to hear something roughly resembling the tune after a bit of practise. The tunes vary from really old traditional standards to 60s and 70s pop. There's not much really modern music, but that's OK by me. Some of the tunes I don't know, but I search them out on YouTube and so am learning some music that is new to me too, so that's a bonus. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value product, 23 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good value case for the Nexus 7. It includes a stylus to "point" with and a screen protector (got a few bubbles though). The case is sturdy and looks good. You can turn it into a "stand" by folding the cover round the back and clipping it in place with a clip on the back. I am finding it really useful.
