Nathan Navarro: The Beatles’ “Because” Solo Bass Arrangement

I always love it when Nathan Navarro puts out a new video, and this is one of my favorites. He takes the classic Beatles tune “Because” and perfectly captures its ethereal vibe with a heavy reverb.

Navarro shared the video on his Facebook page noting, “Here’s an interesting quote from John Lennon: ‘Yoko was playing Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight Sonata’ on the piano… I said, ‘Can you play those chords backwards?’, and wrote ‘Because’ around them.’”

nice, but just a litle too much reverb.

Please upload this to iTunes. I keep coming back to this page, but I’d rather listen to it somewhere other than my computer. Absolutely stunning and fresh take on a classic gem. Thank you.
