<h2>The Opening Chord to "A Hard Day's Night" Solved by a Mathematician!</h2>
 
It’s the most famous chord in rock 'n' roll, an instantly recognizable twang rolling through the open strings on George Harrison’s 12-string Rickenbacker. The opening chord to "A Hard Day’s Night" is also famous because, for 40 years, no one quite knew exactly what chord Harrison was playing. Four years ago, inspired by reading news coverage about the song’s 40th anniversary, Jason Brown of Dalhousie’s Department of Mathematics decided to try and see if he could apply a mathematical calculation known as Fourier transform to solve this Beatles riddle. It worked.... [http://www.scientificblogging.com/news_releases/beatles_unknown_hard_days_night_chord_mystery_solved_using_fourier_transform Read the article &#187;].

156 Countries Sing Together
for the Star$$$$s Love Project


Why another Beatles Web resource?

Yes, although there are already thousands of Beatles-related websites, I wanted to have a different approach — for the albums and songs, an oral history, with quotes from the Beatles and their producer George Martin, as well as others in the inner circle, plus quotes from acknowledged experts on the Beatles; for the other sections, such as the Beatles bio, movies & books, and new articles, high-quality and well written content such as James Perlman's detailed analysis of the audio quality and musicality of the new mono and stereo Beatles remasters.

I hope there are some Beatles fans out there who'd like to be a part of this project. Cheers! Tim
