A code?
No!---
That distinctive chord
John Lennon struck.

“A hard days night”
identified by Millions.

My mind
'brainstorms' tangents...
Social,
literary,
psychological---

theological.

Latin rites
that imply knowledge and power.

Aboriginal chants
and--- “The pointing of the bone.”

Effective...

If the 'listener' believes
and understands.

The power of the internet is that there is always an audience to be found...to listen.

Thanks badge
G11sus4... (Heralded Lennon and McCartney--- Jo Nesbo says--- “singing in unison with an energy they were never to regain on subsequent records.”)
Now resurrected--- in a cell-phone ringtone :blink:

This musical reference in your poem I googled is elucidated for me here:
www.beatlesbible.com/features/hard-days-night-chord/
It is amazing the musical details submitted on the subject by musos on that site.
Your tangential threading of the tonic scale or whatever chimes well IMVHO,
(you can tell I'm a dummy in this area) Benj, into the weave of
other cultural aspects of human record viz. quote "Social,
literary,
psychological---

theological.

Latin rites
that imply knowledge and power.

Aboriginal chants
and--- “The pointing of the bone.”

My thanks for your input Frank. As it says on your web page the original studio recording was a compound effort: Yet, "the most commonly used version for a solo guitar is a G7sus4: a chord barred at the 3rd fret."
But there is more to this poem than the clang of a guitar chord that reached millions: I'll leave that up to the reader. Had I chosen to be verbose with my mind's “brainstorm” of tangent issues (which is pivotal); I may have been tempted to write an essay on communication : organized religion since Darwin, Albert Schweitzer, enlightenment over ignorance, thought control; or even the creation of God as a reflection of the imagination of Man. But being a simple man, I'll settle for those last three lines.

Compact and intriguing, Geoff. It seems to span millennia ... like a Bible code.
