Only A Northern Song

One of the less relevant songs written by The Beatles, discarded during Sgt.Pepper's sessions and later included with some additional effects in the Yellow Submarine album.
However, this is one of the most fun songs to play with bass and huge evidence of how much Paul was enjoying his Rickenbacker at that time and how much he was exploring new things.

This is the Anthology version

Unfortunately I have no time to play anymore, but I found a few minutes just to say hello with this video

Paul is on the centre/right, I am on the other side if you listen to with good heaphones

Enjoy :)

Thank you so much for another 'spot on" version of Paul's bass work.

Both Paul and Francesco are cooking on "Northern Song" 8) that's always been a very awesome Beatles bass line in my book.

Thanks for taking the time to record this, Francesco. We sure miss your videos, but whenever you get a chance, please record some more. I'd sure like to hear some White Album Jazz bass covers when you can as the tone you get with your Jazz is great.
