Guided By Something (Strings)

First of a series devoted to this song, beginning with a simple trio string arrangement from the middle section. The cello, viola, and violin were all played as separate lines on a keyboard to individual tracks. The volume for each track ebbs and flows to emphasise each instrument at a different point. The effect sits somewhere between real and fake, natural-sounding dynamics and weird plastic vibrato. It's a nice arrangement though, especially when the cello hits its high note. 

I'll build this section up a little with more instruments in the next post.
