The Beat

A musical composition


This one was intended to be a bit like some of the later Beatles stuff or maybe the “almost” bubble gum music McCartney started writing around his third Wings album. I like the rhythm change-ups in the middle of the song and also the George Harrison style riffs at the end of the first few bars, even though these are with synth rather than guitar. The style reminds me of something – I mean, “Something” – a song I used to play on the piano for my mom when I was in my early teens – it was her favorite Beatles song.
