Many thanks, Ted!
I always tell people, that so far as I know there is no suriving McCartney version of this song...but up until now it's been theory only.
I occasionally play It's For You as a tribute to Cilla, who at one point in my pre-teen boyhood, I adored.
The song is incredibly sophisticated, written as it was by a then 23-year old
McCartney. The slightly skewed 6/8 time instrumental break...probably George Martin's I reckon... is a bugger to work out on a guitar (by me, at least).
I just sort of busk /strum over it and hope that no one will mind.
Perhaps I'll do it at the Mercury this Saturday. It really is a special song.
Maybe I should try to cover it? The thing is, that it's already perfect. I'm amazed that there aren't more versions of it. Replies:
