Hi everyone, I have been absent for awhile dealing with some health issues but lately I have felt good enough to fool around with this arrangement of the Beatle's song "Because." I have arranged it for a woodwind trio, (flute, oboe, & english horn) accompanied by harp, piano, and bass. This is the GAS piano (close perspective) and the woodwinds are all from Westgate Studios. The harp is the X-Sample Concert Harp and the bass is from Bardstown Audio. This was sequenced in Sonar and I used Altiverb for the reverbs.
The story I remember hearing about this song, which is from the Abbey Road LP, is that Yoko Ono introduced John to Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" and Lennon took the arpeggios from the sonata and stood them on their head and came up with "Because."
Please feel free to share your response to this. I consider myself to be a real novice with MIDI and samples and hope to learn from the members here. I hope this isn't too inept an attempt at this, and that it will be enjoyed. Thanks, John (bigears)
