True Strange Library

The curious collection of a slightly mad scientist

“Something” by the Beatles, just bass & drums

▶ “Something” – bass & drums – YouTube.

Only Ringo’s and Paul’s tracks.
Recorded at the EMI Studios, Abbey Road, London in the summer of 1969.

comment: Note how Ringo jumps a beat on the ride cymbal when the solo starts and the effect it delivers on launching the part… It takes your breath away…

Now in a world where I can place every single drum hit EXACTLY on the beat with Cubase 7, I find myself going back and listening to how the very slight speeding up and slowing down of real musicians creates tension and soul in a song.
