"Rain" (1966)

Every now and then a song gets stuck in my head and I pick up my guitar in an effort to learn more about it.

The latest song to stick with me is the Beatles' "Rain", a fairly simple I-IV-V progression made more complex through alternating accents, time signatures, and, as a recorded object, tape loops and delays.

Prior to that, the last song to stick with me occured in late July, when the skies were clear and my garden was in need of weeding; a song that the authors of "Rain" sing back-up on: the Rolling Stones' "Dandelion" (1967).
