I know some of you are guitar players, too.

“Hard Day’s Night” Mystery chord solved using math

“It’s been a hard day’s night
And I’ve been working like a dog”

This first chord that starts A Hard Day’s Night is one of the most recognizable and famous opening chords in rock & roll. It’s played by George Harrison on his 12 string Rickenbacker.
A hard Days Night

The other reason that it’s famous is because for 40 years nobody knew for sure what it was. Many guitar players have tried in vain to recreate the sound but have usually failed miserably.

Well, someone has figured it out definitively – not a musician, but a Dalhousie mathematician.

Way kool! I shared that with a number of my musician friends (one of my many niches). All were impressed with the depth of analysis he'd done.
