Five Fold Ben, the band consisting of me 5 times has released their second single. Last year we joined together to record “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds as a gift to my wife for her birthday. Well, we are back and this time we’ve covered a popular Beatles tune (that’s redundant) as this year’s gift.
I’ve been a Beatles fan ever since 3rd grade. Mom would go to church choir practice and I’d go to the library across the street. It wasn’t long before I’d checked out and listened to almost every Beatles album they had. There was something appealing about the Beatles to me as a kid and I did a lot of listening all through middle school. My siblings and I also would rent “Yellow Submarine” and “Help” now and then (Hard Days Night was boring and we didn’t get it).
So here it is, this year’s gift to my wife. I love you, Nicole! I don’t know what I would do without you!!
PRODUCTION NOTES (for those interested)
I recorded all the parts in my office on my MacBook Pro built-in camera using my strategically positioned Blue Yeti USB microphone. After recording the parts, I exported the audio into Logic Express to mix it. I then put it all together in Final Cut Express HD. It was a learning experience. Though it’s far from anything like Pompalamoose, I thoroughly enjoyed the process and hope I can make some time to do more like it.
