Personal Quote:

The very first records we made were just on two-track and then we had the great advance of four-track. We were able to actually overdub and start putting secondary voices on and guitar solos at a later stage and that kind of thing. See more »

Trivia:

Although already an accomplished pianist, Martin started to learn the guitar in order to communicate better with the Beatles, none of whom played the piano well when they started working with him. In return, they all started to improve their piano playing by buying a piano each. By Martin's own admission, they learned the piano better than he managed to learn the guitar. See more »
