Description
Here's the next one I got finished up for my father in law Bob's upcoming CD. (Yes, it is a licensed cover). We did a starkly different, tender, more folk-oriented arrangement of this beautiful classic Beatles song. You aficionados will quickly note a couple of altered chords; the second chord in the bridge that normally departs the key, we used the minor that's in the key instead. I also did a little string arrangement.

Bob Hicks - Guitars, vocals
Phil Traynor - bass, strings, guitar solo

DRAWING - My 9 year old did an art clinic this summer with the high school art teacher; and this was a self-portrait she did one of the days.

I'm sure you don't need to hear this from me, but your 9 year old's a gifted artist. Cool to be able to play with your father-in-law, and do right by this tune too...

Thanks Chris!
When Bob first played it for me, I'd never even heard the original. It was weird learning his arrangement first, THEN hearing the Beatles...

Classic song. High quality rendition. Bob's warm vocals are engaging and revealing. The arrangement and mix are wonderful. There is an innate sense of space in the mix and your strings sounds great, Phil. A worthy cover. Enjoyed. Thanks, Peter.

Nice sound to the guitars, relaxed solo, warm strings, vocal delivery shows thought about what the words express. Enjoyable listening!

That's
an astonishing drawing for a 9 year old. She looks very carefully.
Bob sounds very good on this: sensitively sung and well delivered. To my ear, the strings are beautifully arranged, but maybe a little too much. I think a lighter approach (a single cello? Two stringed instruments trading lines?) would be more fitting for this fragile song. My two cents only. Fine job, fellas.

Going to redo...
I just bought EastWest's "Hollywood Strings" as part of a big bundle, so I'm gonna re-render them with more sensitive and realistic patches...

Nice job on this. Unique rendition - are the East/West strings in this rendition? The orchestra sounds great. Enjoyed the guitar solo near the end as well. PS - also great artwork - bet you're proud :)
