    Considering how many times I’ve listened to those songs...surprisingly poor. I got 11 in the first video.

    Awfully tinny bass sound. Is he playing through a tiny guitar practise amp?

    A Hofner bass isn't noted for its extremely deep tones. To me, they're closer to a baritone. It's an octave higher in the mix than a Fender or Ric would be.

    I didn't do too well on guessing the tunes either.

    I got 2 right in the first one and 1 in the second. Not much of a Beatles fan here - there were at least 4 songs I'd never even heard of. And the dude wasn't always in tune... yeah, yeah, that's it... and I couldn't hear my phone's speaker very well... and, and...

    Hello Goodbye. My post-Pepper game is weak. I'm surprised I didn't miss more later ones. My interest starts waning after '63, and drops off a cliff after '65.
