Any of you pop minded folks know what these strings are?
I do-not-like the "You're Beautiful" song by James Blunt. I mean, I REALLY don't like it. But I am trying to figure out what those strings are in the background. Anyone know? I've been googling to find out, but no luck.
There are references to mellotron being used on the album, but those don't sound like mellotron to me. What intrigues me about the part is that it reminds me of the dry strings used on a couple of Al Green records...particularly "Still In Love With You"....a string sound I'm always trying to emulate.
