    Bandgug cover of I Me Mine (Naked Version / Remastered 2013) · The Beatles
    It features Yoshi Koba on all guitars, acoustic and electric, and bass; CopyCat on vocals; Bdajaysus on drums; Michael Dixon on keyboards; and 1tricktony on backing vocals,

    "Let It Be... Naked is an alternative mix of the Beatles' 1970 album Let It Be, released on 17 November 2003 by Apple Records. The project was initiated by Paul McCartney, who felt that the original album's producer, Phil Spector, did not capture the group's stripped-down, live-to-tape aesthetic intended for the album.[1] Naked consists largely of newly mixed versions of the Let It Be tracks while omitting the excerpts of incidental studio chatter and most of Spector's embellishments...

    When EMI informed [The Beatles' original producer George] Martin that he would not get a production credit because Spector produced the final version, Martin commented, "I produced the original, and what you should do is have a credit saying 'Produced by George Martin, over-produced by Phil Spector'." - Wikipedia

    Yoshi thank you very much for all the time and work you put in to separate the guitar tracks so that the volumes could be balanced. I separated my own tracks as well so that the windows could be arranged for a balanced look. I am very pleased with the end result and thank everyone for their hard work in making this version sound so good.

    Thank you. you're welcome. By the way, isn't the sound divided into left and right? I think the sound of each track will be clearer if you set it to stereo. I think it would be even better if the video and sound placement on the review screen matched.

    @yoshikoba: I had it in stereo before. Yes, the electric guitars go left and the acoustic goes right. I will try and fix it.

    Icing on the cake, Tony! Just right. I need to make a few last minute adjustments when I get home and then I’ll mark it conplete and go public with it.

    @Michael Dixon: BVs are perfect, Tony! I made some minor timing adjustments to tighten everything up. It'll just need another publish, if you like.

    @Michael Dixon: Thanks - I didn't touch volumes. That's up to you. Lead guitar at the beginning sounds low to me. Perhaps you or yoshikoba could turn that up some. Maybe bring the bass down some as well.

    @CopyCat : the acoustic guitar does most of the lead and it is on the same track as the rhythm guitar. Yeah the bass could come down. I turned it down once then brought it back up because I thought he liked it there. I’m not happy with the mic.

    @Michael Dixon: See, the problem is that there are multiple guitars on individual tracks,

    @Michael Dixon: I told you when I first send the track that I would separate the track if necessary. Shall I separate all the tracks?

    @yoshikoba: Yes I think so. Copycat is telling me one of the electric guitars is not loud enough and the acoustic guitar is not loud enough for me. Sorry for you to have to do all of that work.
