    Swedish guitarist Göran Söllscher killing it - Eleanor Rigby cover

    Yes, stellar playing for sure! And for something completely different, here's a rock interpretation from a band from my home town, from over 50 years ago! Allegedly, one of the Beatles said "I wish we'd done it like that!"

    Wish Sonic Maximizer Cohesion
