I'm sure I had more flubs and retakes trying to do this tune than any tune I have ever tried recording and it still is not perfect. I'm not sure how many hours it may take to make it perfect either. I do remember hearing this tune done by the Beatles way back in the day. It was back in about 1964 when I first heard the Beatles. Being young at the time, I liked the Beatles. My dad was a Hank Williams/Jimmie Rogers kinda feller and there wasn't much Beatle music played around our house until about 1966. That was mainly because of the
huge technological invention of the hand held transistor radio. Musically speaking only, I became a free young man.
A lot of Beatles songs sound easy, but they are far from it.
I find that songs WRITTEN by The Beatles are usually quite harmonica friendly.
TIL THERE WAS YOU was written by Meredith Wilson and there's a section that really throws you a left curve. The lines starting with, "And there was music..." are almost like a different song. You get a "groove" going at the start of the song and then you hit that section where you have to change up everything and then you suddenly have to return to your original timing.
I've tried a bit of practice on that song on both diatonic and chromatic and keep going off the tracks at that section
At about 1:56 in this video with Shirley Jones is where I get derailed (obviously, she doesn't )
