Here is the video I have made to celebrate the 72nd birthday of Chris Squire. It’s “And You and I” and I have tried to go through the various possible overdubs in the recording, while also adding some of the live features, such as the inclusion of bass pedals.
Bass pedals cover for “Madrigal”. A lot of the work consisted in getting a sound on the bass pedals close to the original.
