    I'm thinking it was an automatic filter on youtube that misjudged my chainsaw videos to terminate the account, not anything to do with the organ video. I tried Vimeo recently and right after posting a video of me cutting firewood, they terminated the account.

    I found it interesting it appears someone, who may not be Boston related (at least isn't Tom or whatever music company he contracted with or owns his music) is selling sheet music arrangements including for organ of this intro. They did a decent job, but it still doesn't match up with what I transcribed. The same with more recent YT videos I've seen. One was a top 20 keyboard intros. The guy seemed to do a good job with his guitar intros, but as for this one, they did good on the first part, obviously a shortened version, missed a couple notes, but continued with chords after the part where the chords start. It always makes me doubt my findings, but I know my standards demand certainty before writing a note down.

    It's just one of those things, like if someone always got Bach's BWV565 always significantly wrong , but of course the sheet music is out for that.

    I transcribed the intro onto sheet music since my YT channel was terminated if anyone is looking for it in sheet music form. I won't post it here as I don't want to get into copyright trouble, or do you guys think it ok?

    I dabbled with this a few years ago. I used an Electro-Harmonix C9 guitar organ pedal for my guitar to add to the organ melodies. It did a pretty good job. I never spent enough time with the piece to really figure it all out. I'd like to a full transcription if anyone has one.

    I am new hear and love the organ so much. I also love rock music hear as man cannot live on Bach alone. John Lord is my favorite Rock guy.

    My end I respect the music and play it without human personality attached, but rather human emotion that created it.

    Like getting the atomic structure of gold wrong.

    A man was told to take a chicken and go and kill it where no one can see.

    The man comes back, chicken still alive.

    They asked, why didn't you kill the chicken?

    Answer:
    Because everywhere I took the chicken, the chicken could see...

    Oh, yea I know what you are talking about. I noticed that too. Some lady on youtube playing a red keyboard with lots of distortion screwed up the intro, but seemed to get those chords correct.

    No I mean the way the chords are played seconds before the vocal comes in and is what the organ part is up against the lyrics of the first verse.

    It's been such a long time
    I think I should be goin', yeah



    The "turn around" if you count four after the intro solo lead lines, at the 4 count of the second bar, there's a little note that the original plays that many leave out, mainly because the transcriptionist missed that lick and the others who read off the transcription kept playing the wrong thing.

    Listen to that part of the song (the original full song intro when the vocals come in AND the organ track I posted) but you'll need to reacquaint yourself with someone playing off the transcription error in order to notice it.

    It's subtle but to me it separates those with critical listening ears and gets the rhythm in the right sequence for that spot in the song over those backing chords.

    Nut, lots of work there. Thanks for the slo-mo.

    Wished you'd played the whole thing at the end in normal speed.

    The part that many make the mistake is within the chord structure after all that intro, right before the vocals come in.

    You can tell that many that cover this on U2b are doing the same mistake they read on the transcription. Rather than using their ears, they leaned on the transcription.

    Another thing to consider, whether the parts were played top to bottom in one take or were they punched-in, is something to ponder.

    Spring reverb? Did TS rely on spring reverb?

    Wouldn't it be plate like an EMT if he had that in his studio?
    This guy was all about studio-level gear plugged-in unorthodox ways.

    Through Rockman, (sold to Dunlop in the mid -90's) TS helped pioneer the use of software.

    Aren't we glad this guy's MIT brain was put to good use?

    Good Tom Hunting???

    Naaaaaaaaaaah!!!
