The Beatles | Here Comes The Sun | Declassified tempo map

This is a chart that was not classified, then after my brain aneurysm I realized my images were disorganized and some that were unclassified had become part of a patent.

While working on the patent, I was asked by the government for $350 to keep a trademarked name on which I had made no money. I hadn’t tried to make money – that wasn’t the point of the trademark.

Anyway, I let it lapse. After the aneurysm, my priorities didn’t change very much insofar as my wanted to show how the speeds of the classic pop-rock songs were played. I make sure these charts are accurate.

Never do I fool myself that the speed is way third in importance to the melody and the harmony, and even the timbre. That said, the simplicity of what I noticed to be patterns have yet to be acknowledged by anyone with a real name in a real place.

Here Comes The Sun by the Beatles is one of the most difficult measurements I have done, with only “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Stairway To Heaven” more difficult.
