The "Get Back/Let It Be" project January 07 1969

Rehearsals for the upcoming live show (at this point) resumed at the Twickenham Film Studios in London by the Beatles on January 07 1969. The day started with some discussion as to the location of the upcoming show and it was decided that it be held in England although no central location was decided upon.
A couple of Paul's songs were rehearsed in the morning including "I've Got A Feeling" and a recent composition entitled "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". Paul showed off the chords to the rest of the band as he sat at the piano.
A couple of John's songs were rehearsed in the afternoon including the resurrection of "Across The Universe" as well as "Dig A Pony" and "Don't Let Me Down". You can see some of the footage from this day in the final "Let It Be" movie with Paul showing the band how to play "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" as well as John going over both "Across The Universe" (with nice harmonies by Paul) and some of "Dig A Pony" from this particular day.
