The ex Beatles Paul McCartney shows the Mellotron organ. Taken from Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road
I love the Beatles. But does anyone else think it’s a bit cringy to see Paul at this age sing these songs?
He was wrong saying it was the forerunner of the synthesizer. in fact the Mellotron was the forerunner of the Sampler, NOT The synthesizer! As in the 60s synthesizers already appeared in the form of the MOOG Synthesizer.
2:08 Fun fact: C418 also sampled this very section for his song "Stal" from Minecraft! If you listen to the C418 version, the riff appears at the 1:30 mark in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0E5l2GHBxB8. I like to think he watched this very video in 2011 when he was developing the album for the game and enjoyed it enough to feature a part of it in his music.
The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill: the Hispanic guitar intro was from a meletron
I thought he said queer and they bleeped it out
I was wondering how you do a full keyboard slide from C major to G minor. Then I realized that you turn it into a minor 7th by sliding to Bb without the without the bottom note.
A haunting instrument
Billy, you couldn’t be LESS than Paul if you tried harder.
Dude so there's a kind of transpose there
so they basically paid to watch paul mccartney fuck around
Did they film this with a mellotron too?
Neumann u87 mic
2:00 My ovaries!!!
Paul is one of the architects of the Mellotron. Great to see him share his enthusiasm for this unique instrument. I’ve always loved the sounds and used one on my original song “Maoershan”. https://youtu.be/sohbH0hzCwg
2:30 What a beautiful and nostalgic melody
0:54 name of song?
Any critics is very down to the "toppermost of the poppermost" or HEIGHT OF THE GREATEST BAND:THE BEATLES stood always in front of ALL THE GREAT BANDS although REALLY GREATS
0:13 The Mellotron is really a forerunner of the sampler, and would inspire instruments like the Birotron (until that instrument fell off the face of the earth) and the Fairlight CMI of the 80s. I'd say the true forerunner of the synthesizer is the Hammond Novachord, or perhaps the Telharmonium even further back.
I get the feeling he could walk on stage, fart, and the audience would burst into a 5 minute standing ovation.
2:29 goosebumps 😥😭
