Strawberry Fields Forever – The Beatles
“Strawberry Fields Forever” by the Beatles, an acoustic cover by Mike Massé, live at the Epstein Theatre in Liverpool, U.K., on 21 May 2019. Mike returns to the Epstein Theatre on Friday, 15 May 2020. Tickets available now.
This gig was my first trip to Liverpool. It was a bucket list thing for me to visit Strawberry Fields, but to also perform the song in Liverpool that same day was quite special. I’ve always played this song in A, and I would bet John played it that way. But if memory serves, the recording is between A and Bb, after being sped up. So for those who prefer Bb, just throw a capo on the first fret.
Thank you to Rudolf and Michaela Wagner for recording this concert for me. And thank you to Mona and Lisa Wagner, the MonaLisa Twins, for sitting in.
My guitar is an Ovation Custom Legend, made in the U.S.A. I’m an Ovation-sponsored artist.
Thanks to Wild Dog Stomp pedals out of Australia for providing the awesome stomp. My model is the Bunyip.
I use Elixir Phosphor Bronze Nanoweb Light HD strings.
