More on The Beatles and Keys

I posted some time ago about Beatles songs in major and minor keys, and that post has become my most viewed, despite its almost total lack of usefulness.

There’s really, really good info on The Beatles’ choice of keys to be found here. Note the preponderance of guitar-friendly sharp keys throughout, especially at the beginning of their career, and the emergence of more piano keys as John and Paul start noodling on keyboards, and varispeed makes its appearance.
