I must have missed it. His fingering looked correct and sync'd to the audio to me.
McCartney has always been one of the best at singing and playing bass at the same time.
Yeah, I would have been shocked to find he wasn't playing his own bass lines.
Yes, he's a master at making it look simple. Go back to some of the Ed Sullivan footage and he was making it look easy even back then.
+1000 I mean the guy has been doing it for awhile?
It's right on the money. What's the problem?
Of course Paul plays the bass on stage , this is an official video, there are alot of edition that has been done, check his right hand , he is playing the right notes maybe the video it is not in sync.
He usually has blocks of piano songs, bass songs and guitar songs.
That blonde around 0:30!
I don't get what you are seeing, It looks right to me? Are you talking about when he takes his fretting hand off the neck?
McCartney frightens me.
I just watched that for the first time in 20 years. I was shocked how good they were.
When he takes his hand off the neck, it's an open string is all. His right hand is still going. It's just not in the frame.
Who says playing in a cover band doesn't make you a good musician? By the time they got to the Sullivan show, they could do this in their sleep.
Yeah... Paul will point a lot at the audience or up in the air with his fretting hand. He's still playing the open string.
After 50+ years of bass playing, he's got it down better than most...
Yes,he's playing......he's also the Walrus
Look, I didn't watch the video, but I guarantee you this:
If Paul McCartney takes his hand off the neck, and you still hear the note, THAT'S JUST HOW GOOD HE IS.
LOL. This made me laugh.
McCartney may have to start faking it a few years down the road from now and it will be forgivable because he's earned the right to fake it, but no way he's faking it now or in that video.
Personally I doubt he would ever fake it. He might simplify, but fake it? Not gonna happen. In fact I'm not listening to this suggestion at all BLAH BLAH BLAH hands over my ears I can't hear you
That's one of my favorite video's! Jeez, that band is SO good! That stage set is killer!
Love the dancing ladies.....and ya gotta love that little girl at 1:21 who's so into it!
