This one is clearly inspired by The Beatles during their Rubber Soul/Sgt. Pepper's phase and started with the rhythm guitar parts for the verse and chorus. I forwarded those bits off to Greg and he added drums, bass and a new part that had a Strawberry Fields vibe to it. I went back and redid my rhythm guitar parts as a stereo double and Greg asked me to have a go at the bass in the verse and chorus. With those parts now in good shape, Greg added slide guitar and vocals and fired a rough mix back to me where I added the guitar harmony and solo part starting just past the 2 minute mark. From there Greg did the final tweaks on the instrumentation and did the mix and master. Greg used the Abbey Road plugin for the mastering phase which emulates the old Studer-designed reel-to-reel tape machines which George Martin used in the studio. George would bounce tracks back and forth between these tape machines to create the multi-layered songs that the Beatles were famous for during that time which broke new ground and set the standard for modern multi-tracked recordings. I highly recommend this plugin for application to digital recordings as it seems to remove the brittleness that is inherent with today's digital recording technology without losing the definition of the sound or making it sound dull.
