Description : I need to get out more. I started working on this song before I ever heard of it. I thought it was an original by someone from looperman. Anyway, I heard a lot of Beatles and Eagles in it so I put a little something together. Anyway, early end to a fun project. Original lyrics by Robbie Williams. Performed by
robinz. Music, I guess my own twist to a song I never heard before.
Description : This is a collaboration with singer Ben Parks on vocals and Kateřina Mrázková on backing vocals. These chaps were kind enough to grace my cover version of this classic Beatles track with their excellent vocals. You can find Ben here on Looperman under the name - bparx and Kateřina under the pseudonym Canette3frostie.
Description : Michael Jackson & The Beatles acapellas & some loops I found here.

Description : This track is the first two sections of what will (hopefully) be a three-part piece — essentially a suite. I am posting parts 1 and 2 because I think they are ready for feedback from Looperman members. Part 3 isn’t done yet because it requires Human League style vocals from a singer with a distinct British accent. I have the melody and lyrics worked out. I sent a private message a while ago to a Looperman member who I think has the right voice for the job. But, haven’t had a response. Until I find a vocalist for it, I can’t finish the piece. In any case, the total file size of the complete piece would be greater than the Looperman limit, so it will have to be split into parts anyway.
Parts 1 and 2, in fact the whole thing, were inspired by acapellas posted here on Looperman by Jacques Demers:
If you haven’t checked out Jacques’ tracks yet, you really should. He doesn’t set them up as “featured” so it might be easy to miss them.
The harmony in Jacques’ acapellas sounded very “Beatle-ish” to me, and that made me want to try my hand at doing a George Martin style treatment. I remembered that ScottsCovers here on Looperman had mentioned an instrument called a Mellotron, which was used by the Beatles, the Moody Blues, Genesis, along with other groups of that era, so I decided to use a VST mellotron as the primary instrument for Parts 1 and 2.
The acapella in Part 2 was in a different key than the one used for Part 1, so I needed to find a chord progression in Part 1 that would modulate the key. Jacques gave me some advice on that, which you can see in the comments on his first acapella.
Part 1 has harp, mellotron flutes, clarinet, french horns, and my attempt at a Penny Lane type trumpet solo (but much simpler). Part 2 has a string ensemble, solo oboe and trumpet in unison, and some Daniel Langois type processed guitars. Both parts were recorded at 60 bpm, largely because that’s where the acapellas seemed to sync best. However, I played the instrument tracks freestyle (rubato), so the tempo actually varies somewhat. Definitely not quantized!
There is a storyline behind this track. Part 1 is the blooming stage of a relationship. Part 2 is about the relationship in decline. Part 3, with vocals, will be about ending it.
I’ve included the transition to Part 3 (which will be a more traditional synth pop section) and just a bit of the first verse backing instrumental so you can get an idea of how things are headed in the final part.
Description : This is a catchy little tune reminiscent of the 60s Beatles, Ventures and The Shadows' style, but also some 70s funk and lead guitar riffs thrown in for good measure. It may remind you of the Beatles' "Day Tripper" in some parts if you're old enough to remember (hence the title.) Check it out!
Description : French Dip featuring Looperman's very talented Janis71, from Buddahmann's free mixtape Faded coming Feb. 18, 2014. Produced by Don Demenace. Contains a sample of The Beatles, "Octopus's Garden"... Someone wanna throw a verse on here? I'll extend it... Let me know asap and I'll shoot you the instrumental.

Description : THIS TRACK IS SAMPLED FROM THE BEATLES SONG HEY JUDE I TOOK THE SAMPLE AND MADE IT SOUND DEMONIC I WAS BORED SO ENJOY AND LEAVE ME FEEDBACK
Description : I've been in a bit of a Beatles kick lately (takes me back to my childhood)
Anyway - my approach to recording a Beatles song was to not "study" their harmonies or guitar parts - but instead to just lay down 2 electric guitar trax (with old "electric" sounding tones)to a smashin drum loop (added some fills), played a bassline then sang vocals (and some backups) - off the cuff - all first takes - and call it done. Their songs are so good that you can do that!
Description : Made with some of the chords from the Beatles song Strawberry fields.
Description : My short rendition of Yesterday by the beatles. Used logic pro with a midi keyboard.
Description : just a little motif inspired by the beatles' "in my life". check it out. i did it in reason and can send the file if anyone wants to collab on this idea.
Description : One of my first recordings, circa summer 1972. I'm playing piani, bass and vocals with my friend Vince on guitars and vocals. Sort of unintended reggae meets the Beatles. For my age, I still think the lyrics, while an inside joke are quite clever. I apologize for the quality. It's not easy to go from a Teac 2340 to cassette to DAT to mp3 over 36 years.
Description : This song is written in tribute to the music of the Beatles.
What a band!! I listen to their music quite a bit and it amazes me that it was recorded on a four track and bounced down to get more track space, it sounds so fresh and clear, George Martin is a genius. The song writing, vocal harmonies and musicianship are sublime...
