This boy (cover)

Something from the Beatles again. Maybe I should start a Beatles tribute band :D jk. So I tried to mix it based on what I heard from the remastered stereo version.
So bass is panned left along with the splangs on the electric. The rhythm guitar and the acoustic splangs are in the middle. Drums are slightly panned left close to the middle. Vocal harmonies are panned right except for John's, left it slightly closer to the right but far from the middle. The bridge John vocals are in the middle. What else? Oh lead guitar in the middle too. Enjoy :D

Brill Bala, really excellent stuff. I was transported back to the 60s ( yes I was there!) the vibe is so right for the era.  The drums are a little quiet ( I'm listening on headphones) - backing vocals and rhythm guitar are superb. Great job man!

Thank you Birdland. Felt like I had to harmonize today lol Thank for the feedback on the Drums. I'll bring it up and repost. Thank you :)

Thank you Hilts! I love their live stuff and their recording stuff but I truly appreciate their live stuff for the harmonies which they do an excellent job of. This is one a favorite for the harmonies. :)

Excellent production, Bala.  Especially impressive vocal performance, but it was all really good.  Lovely 50s style rock 'n roll.

Quite different to hear the bass on the left like that ... unsure as to whether I liked it like that.

Thank you David. I sure had a lot of fun with this one. I really love harmonizing and also playing Bass and rhythm for this one. Very simple yet complex.

And I tried to do it as it was on the remastered release from 2009. I found it quite strange how it was done too. I left it at about 70% on the left. I really enjoyed playing bass though.
