I used a volume pedal to create an organ-like effect while setting up the first loop of “Yesterday” by John Lennon/Paul McCartney. For the second loop in the song, I used an octave-below effect to create a bass line on the Yamaha silent electric violin. After playing a loose version of the melody, I improvised a solo over the form of the song. Finally, I created a new electric violin loop as a vamp to close the song, using also the “octave up” feature and a distortion pedal.
Now, give me YOUR feedback! Feel free to leave a comment below :)
