"Strawberry Fields Forever" (Home-Recording)

This cover-version was recorded about 4 years ago. The basic track is my brother (who likes to call himself Jeroen) playing piano and singing. The MP3 version was emailed to me, which I proceeded to edit on computer. I overdubbed keyboards, guitars and drums (all plugged straight into the computer) and laced everything with a generous helping of swirling effects. A funny feature of this version is that I had to have the entire overdub-section follow the same wavering tempo of the original recording, resulting in some slowly gliding and othe gallopping parts.

Unlike me, Jeroen can hold a note!
