The Beatles, In My Life

I'm surprised I've never mentioned this before, but I'm a huge Beatles fan. If you'd ask why, this is about as good an answer I could give as any.

And George Martin wails on the harpsichord.

Wasn't it a piano sped-up?

Yes it is, I'd forgotten about that. George Martin played his piano solo at a deliberately slower pace, then the tape was sped up to match the actual tempo of the song, to give it that "harpsichordy" sound (I made that word up myself).

Thanks for reading, and stick around!
