Covering The Beatles: A Day in the Life

I’m currently working on a cover of A Day in the Life with my friend Adiambo. So I’ve been spending my time arranging strings for the first verse this morning, this takes it up to the big crescendo. I still need to tweak some of my string samples to sound more realistic but I’ve been focusing more on the notes than the sounds at this point. I owe a lot to the Beatles for captivating me with their music when I wasn’t even as focused on music as I am now. They are like the Plato and Aristotle of rock and roll, I wonder if the breadth and impact of their work has yet to be matched in modern music. Not to mention the message of love that pervades their music, where did that message ever go?
