2.366 – greater than the sum of its parts

(via openculture)

The opening chord to “A Hard Day’s Night” might be the most famous single chord ever played, at least in modern music. What’s so great about it is that it’s not just one chord — it took three Beatles (and their producer) to make that sound. 

There are a lot of analogies to make here, but I won’t make any of them. It’s a good reminder, though, that working alone is never as rewarding as collaborating with others.
