Neil,

In the 'Let's Talk Theory' video for "Blackbird" at about :50 sec you are talking about fingerpicking technique. You there say 'McArthey's half strum technique' instead of McCartney's half strum technique.

OK, OK, OK- I watched and listened to this 3 times, even with students. Is anybody else as delusional as Ric on this issue???

Ok Neil - I had both my wife and daughter listen to it. I guess all that loud music when I was younger has taken its toll. They both hear McCartney's, though I still hear McArthey's. Isn't old age a B.

I'm very deaf, too many guns and WAY too much playing electric when I was younger (can I blame Neil Young?) I heard something like M'c...ey.

Side note... since I've been deaf (I pretty much really am) I have found that it is easier to tune, not by ear, but by chest. Any one else know what I mean?
