Consider the Source: God Only Knows

This is the Beach Boys like you’ve never heard them. Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion band Consider the Source sat down with videographer Jody Miller to document their quirky yet infectious rendition of “God Only Knows.”

Bassist John Ferrara handles bass and melody with two-handed tapping while double-neck guitarist Gabriel Marin and drummer Jeff Mann perfectly fill out the arrangement. Be sure to check out the bass solo at 1:55.

    Kinda neat, but I never really liked The Beach Boys.

    This worked for me , God only knows what’s been played on that aged guitar , like fine wine it keeps getting better with time.

    I dig their approach, and their style. Cool cover.

    Nice tribute to Brian Wilson. Many people don’t realize that Brian was a excellent song writer and arranger with the help of the Wreaking Crew (Carol Kaye). Thanks for this rendition of a great song. Blessings!!!
