Performance and Arrangement
Earlier songs in the career were based on Rock and Roll, Rhythm andBlues and Motown/ Soul Sounds
It was an energetic and lively band creating those types of songs, withmainly sweet melodic tunes but less often they did rocky songs.
The works later on throughout the Beatles career had diverseinstrumentation, complex structures, and changing keys and timesignatures.
They also used SONIC EXPERIMENTATION- which recorded ambient
sound of which they mixed in with the music.
The recording of the arrangements used reverse tape which playedsounds which had been recorded normally onto a tape and had literally just been reversed so you heard them the wrong way round.
Also use of extreme reverb and delay settings and added phasing and
flange effects.
