I am so bored, that I have just called someone in a call centre, to see if they have had an accident in the last 3 years.

And here is an 'animated video' of this done by TDP Member Rocco.



This song was composed and sung by John Lennon in 1977 but only recorded as a 'home DEMO'.  Then many years later the tapes for it were 'discovered' and the Beatles got back together to record a new version of it, which included not only John Lennon's original soundtrack but also material from the other three band members.

From Wikipedia:
"Free as a Bird" is a song originally written and recorded in 1977 as a home demo by John Lennon, formerly of the Beatles. In 1995, 25 years after their break-up and 15 years after Lennon was murdered, the band released a studio version incorporating contributions from his surviving bandmates Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
   
The Beatles: the recording of 'Free As A Bird' and 'Real Love' by Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney & Ringo



And here is the result of their efforts.

Now here's one where the 'standard' of C - Am - Dm - G7 has been 'twisted' to create a very unusual and striking chord progression.

Instead of:
/ C - Am - Dm - G7 / C - Am - Dm - G7 /

we have:
/ C - Am - Abmaj7 - G7 / C - Am - Fm - G7 /

.. or strictly speaking, as the piece is actually played in A ..
/ A - F#m - Fmaj7 - E7 / A - F#m - Dm - E7 /

Free As A Bird (Beatles number) played by Peter Slack (Peter S) on his Korg PA4X.

And here is a video where 'pianojohn113' goes through all the chords of this song on the piano.  Names all the chords and shows how they are constructed.  A great video for anyone who 'plays by ear'.
