An anonymous poster (tell us who you are!) left a comment on my post of Juliette Tang’s John-Yoko restaging pic:

I hope this is not too far off topic, but so often we concentrate on the legend of John Lennon without considering what he physically did as a performer. I came across this video, How To Play Guitar Like John Lennon:

Perfect if you plan on joining the cast of Beatlemania, or if you just want to appreciate the techniques of the world’s most underrated guitarist.

The affable, edifying instrumentalist is Michael Sokil (“MJ Sokes”).

Our anonymous poster also brings this piece, written by Sokil, to our attention. We learn at the end that he’s taught himself the guitar, drum, bass, and piano parts for every Beatles song!

Who is this guy?!
