Beatles Tunes
Having grown up with the Beatles, we are very familiar with the tunes and have several Beatles tune books for solo and duo. We identified specific Beatles tunes as being very nice for weddings. We have duo arrangements of these three tunes.

  1. When I'm 64 (for postlude, after the recessional)

  2. All My Loving (for prelude or cocktail hour)

  3. And I Love Her (for prelude or cocktail hour)

  4. Michelle

Additionally, we like these tunes but currently can play them solo only, as we have no duo arrangements:

  1. I Will (recessional or postlude)

  2. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (for postlude)

  3. Here, There, and Everywhere (prelude or meditation)

  4. Across the Universe (prelude or meditation)

  5. In My Life (prelude or meditation)
