  • How unbelievable to create a everlasting hit with only 2 chords–E minor and C major!

    One of my former Bass teachers, Homer Mensch from Julliard, recorded this tune with the Beatles in NY.

    • McCartney was a chord spendthrift! Lennon’s “Tomorrow Never Knows,” like Eleanor Rigby from the Revolver album, has half as many chords. C major only (who needs that E minor) although the melody occasionally flats the seventh.
