Good Vibrations (The Beach Boys)

Good Vibrations (The Beach Boys)


The original used a Theramin (weird sound in all those 50’s scary movies) - here we use false harmonics and vocals for fun.

The Beach Boys were famous for their four-part harmonies which translates nicely into the string quartet. This is a fairly exposed piece as it has many dynamics, short bow strokes and false harmonics. The harmonics should sound more like a theremin than a violin (electronic sound used in all those 50’s sci-fi movies). Watch intonation and keep a good sound on the short notes. Swing the rhythms a little if you like.
