  1. This is one of the most interesting videos I’ve seen in a while. Thanks David.

    Also you should’ve added some reverb and distortion to the vocals

    1. Thank you!

      There is already distortion and reverb on the vocals, but perhaps I could have put more on.

  2. It just goes to show you how The Beatles were such studio pioneers. Great work!

    1. Agreed! With most bands, if I wanted to avoid copyright issues I’d find a decent cover on YouTube and job’s a good’un… but with the Beatles work between 1966-1969 you can’t find a decent cover because the original recordings are so elaborate and magnificent!

  3. As a from the womb Beatles fan, you nailed it. Sounds amazing! You are incredibly talented.

  4. Man, I wish more people were willing to go to such lengths to review and analyze a song. Well done David!

  5. I’m betting the editing is a lot faster on the new computer as well! Wonder what new possibilities this may bring

  6. Can I just say… I love your channel so much that I feel your success as if it were my own. Ok, back to the video now.

  7. Brilliant homage to a band that never gets old. And that AM radio sequence really nails the authenticity. 👏 👏 👏

    1. @David Bennett Piano if Noel Gallagher could get away with someone playing the scissors on stage, I think AM radio definitely counts.

  8. Man, that’s pure gold! As a cellist and Beatles fan, this video really made my day!

    Thanks, David!

    1. Thank you! My only regret is that I couldn’t get those cello glissandos!

  9. Wow. That was awesome! I have no more words, just incredible work man. Cheers!!!

  10. Yo that was so much fun! And the end result was amazing! The string arrangement is beautiful, I had never realized that before but it sounds great here. Next level stuff!!

    1. One of my favourite things in this whole process was transcribing the strings and horns… BOY was George Martin a legend!!!

  11. Wow .. wonderful place to learn music and experience fascinating music theories.. keep making such great work of music David.. congratulations 👏🙏

  12. Matt Walsh: “you can’t identify as a walrus”
    The Beatles, decades earlier: “Hold my beer”

  13. As a 67 year old life long Beatles fan, I have to say that was amazing it must have taken forever to do, and you hit the nail on the head, Genius

  14. Amazing to see such dedication, you really went above and beyond with this one! Thank you for creating content for us 🙂
