I was listening to Abbey Road, and I've come to the conclusion I like the Moog in Because, but not in Here Comes The Sun. It works for me in Because because it gives it a New Age kind of feel, but in Here Comes The Sun? I would have preferred more "natural" sounds. It just takes me out of the song, which is a shame. Perhaps I'll come back to it in a month and see if I still feel the same way.

Thoughts? Feelings?

I sort of like it on Here Comes The Sun, it gives the song kind of a trippy feel.

I don't mind the moog in Here Comes The Sun. But then again, I don't see any problem in Here Comes The Sun...a-hard-days-night-george-5

 

(What a fantastic contribution to this topic hehehehehe)

Me too! I feel exactly the same thing.

 

By the way: it's a moog or minimoog? I mean, the moog is huge and I readed that's very hard to program it.

The mini wasn't marketed until 1971; and, yes, the full-on Moog took an incredibly long time to program. If they'd indeed decided to go overboard and plaster Abbey Road  with its sounds, it wouldn't have been released until after they'd broken up!

BTW, I think it sounds just fine on "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" and "Here Comes The Sun" and, well, everywhere! (Including Electronic Sound.) But I admit I'm a bit of a Moog fetishist.

So how huge is huge?

About this big: http://matrixsynth.blogspot.co.....12000.html

Another pic here: http://matrixsynth.blogspot.co.....-iiip.html – the ribbon controller used on Maxwell is at the front.

EDIT this wasn't George's actual Moog; the ribbon controller was similar but not the same.

As George says on the "Here Comes The Sun" article: "There wasn't an instruction manual, and even if there had been it would probably have been a couple of thousand pages long."

Holy Cow!! That looks to the first ENIAC computers!! (I didn't know them, I had computer history classes)

I wonder if you had to insert those computer punch cards to program them a-hard-days-night-john-3

I don't think it's intentionally trippy, but when I listen to it with headphones the synthesizer gives it that sort of feel.

Thanks about my avatar. I also love it. It's my all time favorite George moment, (and he wasn't even part of it)

 

I think I know what you mean. Here Comes The Sun is a song with a very delicate balance. It's uplifting, it's positive, it's about nice cool things, but at the same time, it's not sappy, because it has the George factor, something in the song that tells you it's honest.

 

So yeah, It's like George... and George is cool! a-hard-days-night-george-6
