Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles



If you like Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles, see if you like this rendition performed by a double bass orchestra from Athens. I think it is interesting to listen and realise how versatile a double bass can be. Many thanks to Jason Heath for pointing me to this video.

There is a site that provides an interpretation to the lyrics of Eleanor Ridgby by The Beatles for those who are interested to read more: http://entrypoints.com/RockLyrics/EleanorRigby.html

Does anyone happen to know the name of this double bass orchestra that had played in the video shown above? I hope to give the due credits and acknowledgements to the group for its nice rendition of the work.

Isn't this a fun video? You can tell that the person taking the video was a friend of or parent of one particular bassist, seeing as how prominently she's featured.

They're good. I wish the orchestra at my school would do this song.
