Maggie8181: Old Brown Shoe

Here’ Maggie and BoLucky covering George Harrison’s Old Brown Shoe…a great song.  It’s so fun to watch that bass line being played because it’s not as simple as it sounds.  Mags does a great job!  And, I wish I had BoLucky’s guitar skills!  Check out Mags’ MACCA T-shirt!!  Awesome!

    Written by George Harrison. The song was first released by the Beatles as a B-side to “The Ballad of John and Yoko”.
    The Beatles’ recording of this song features lead vocals from Harrison, and backing vocals from John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The unusual bass sound was achieved by tracking the bass with the lead guitar. There is some controversy over whether Harrison played bass. Everett states that it was McCartney’s Jazz Bass doubled in the bridge with Harrison’s Telecaster playing chromatically moving arpeggiations in a similar manner to the bridge guitars in “And Your Bird Can Sing”.[9] In a two part CREEM interview (published December 1987 and January 1988), however, George Harrison appears to confirm he played bass for the piece.
