Listening Guides I, II, III
A companion to What Goes On: Beatles Textbook
These SILENT timelines sync directly to the music, mapping the five categories outlined in the What Goes On: performance, material, arrangement, production, and concept. Watch the first video in each playlist for detailed instructions.
Several teaching goals coalesce in an easy-to-use format, students can do detailed listening at their own speed to develop paper ideas; a count-down clock at the start synchronizes with a CD or streaming player; and comprehensive production notes alert listeners to the technical matters concerning production. For copyright purposes, these videos contain NO audio. Use iTunes, spotify, or another streaming platform to sync tracks with videos.
Start with the user demonstration video below, which also leads off all three longer track sequences in I, II, and III.
