While pop and rock music is usually associated with electric guitars and drums, every now and then musicians will add a classical sound and incorporate a violin or even an entire string section. Rarer still is a segment of isolated string instruments within a pop or rock song. In this montage – which took a fairly long time to research and compile – I have collected isolated string samples (or as isolated as I could find) from ten well-known pop and rock songs.
This time there will be only one version of the montage, without any gaps. That’s because the silence between the song samples ruins the continuity and makes it sound horrible. I worked a long time trying to get the songs to flow smoothly into each other, and I don’t want to diminish the final result. It’s still not perfect, but it’s the best I can do for now.
Try to guess as many titles and artists as you can, in the comment section below.
