I have to say I did enjoy that. You managed to capture the quintessential essence of the Beatles melody technique, without specifically copying their work.

A rather unique delivery.

Nice job. I can hear Beatle influence, Beatle style instrument choices and Beatle style melody lines in your piece and all the while maintaining originality.

Enjoyed this.

A brilliant piece of tribute right there, the Beatles vibe is absolutely unmistakeable without blatantly plagiarising.

You've made a 'follower' out of me cool

My first reaction to your post was: How can someone create instrumental music that sounds "Beatlish"? Well, you've done it!! Very nice, pleasant, melodic music with a definite Beatle vibe. I love the Beatles so I really enjoyed this! Nice job!! Take care. Greg

Awesome tribute, Christian! Can hear The Beatles influence coming through strong on this one, most definitely! Only thing it's missing is some singing from John or Paul smile Thanks for sharing!

Wow - you nailed this! You can pick up on the Beatles influence within 10 seconds. It's got a wonderful groove, and the arrangement is on point too.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile
