This review is from: Lj Plays the Beatles (Audio CD)
I agree with all of the other five-star reviews. I find myself listening to this over and over, something I rarely do with new cds. For you guitarists, LJ plays these tunes mostly in DADGAD, a few in CGDGAD and I think one in standard (I'm at work and don't have the CD here to check for sure).
The album is intriguing on two levels: one, LJ plays many of the intrumental parts off the original albums -- including some amazing bass lines. This is what fingerstyle guitar is all about, but he takes it to another level! Secondly (however), this is not just an attempt to faithfully transpose these tunes to the guitar: his own artistry is quite apparent. It takes more than one listen to appreciate the subtle touches and tonal colorings. In short, a faithful rendition and loving tribute to the Beatles' music, but in the end, a work of art that stands on its own.
