Hello Friends.  A little something to distract you from the chaos out there.  In this video, you'll learn how Brian arranged 7 guitars plus 2 Fender basses to create a powerful, driving track unlike anything he'd done for the Beach Boys before.  As usual, I've created an hyper-accurate re-recording of the original backing track to effect a "fantasy multi-track" that we can use to learn about Brian's productions.  This one was so accurate that YouTube thought it was the original recording!!!


I really hope it helps you think about something other than the pandy.

Fabulously done. I’d be excited to see any and all production breakdowns like this. Today and Summer Days have a super special place in my heart. Now let’s get that guitar solo in there for completionism! Heh

That last remark doesn't surprise me in the slightest. It really does sound super! Only a mind as enquiring and meticulous as yours could dissect and rebuild this wondrous backing track for our enlightenment. Once again you’ve just made a whole bunch of people very happy. Spread this video around, folks (and the rest of Joshilyn's channel). A simple link in a signature can work wonders--and help bring in more precious donations. Cool

Yes indeed, JH. You’ve given us something to be optimistic about. It's party time again in Beach Boy Land.  Brian, Dennis, & Carl

Good to see a discussion going at full tilt "across the road". There'll be one here too, no doubt, once those guitarists chime in. Wink

Joshilyn, I hope making it took your mind off the current mess for a bit. Then it really will have been worthwhile. Smiley

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Perhaps I should add that the visuals alone are a delight (with a full screen, of course).

This aspect has not gone unnoticed. Wonderful stuff!

Great stuff, as usual. Any thoughts on the solo itself, or Carl's abilities in that area? Do you know much about his approach (like, say, improvised vs. written by Carl vs.
directed/written out by Brian)? It's interesting how all these subtle licks get buried and can go unnoticed.

I'm guessing Carl pretty much planned out what he wanted to do then improvised around that.  There are a few takes of a solo for DYWD and they aren't the same.  I think there are a few other instances of where Carl tries one solo on a track of the multi, only to cut that and do a new one as it dubs to mono?

Excellent work!

My thoughts on these "Wall Of Guitars" type of productions from Brian (and Spector and others including Jimmy Page a few years later) is again just how influential Les Paul's "New Sound" recordings from the late 40's and early 50's were on rock and roll. Les would overdub himself as if the guitars were a big band arrangement with horns and winds, and he'd fill the track with guitars playing in every frequency range from bass to impossibly high treble. That's how tracks like the one above are arranged, and I'll suggest Brian hearing all of those Les Paul Capitol records on the Wilson family jukebox in Hawthorne was one of the ideas he carried around in his mind for years before he had the outlet to put it to tape himself.
