In My Life - key of G
More Samples

"In My Life" was originally recorded by the Beatles and released on the 1965 album Rubber Soul. It was written mainly by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. Later news reports showed that John Lennon wrote most of the song, and it is clearly "Lennon-ish", but Paul McCartney and Lennon later disagreed over the extent of their respective contribution to that song, specifically the melody. The record producer, George Martin, contributed the piano solo bridge.

If I remember correctly, the electronic piano solo in the middle, added by Martin (who was a classically trained musician), was added during a lunch break when the band members were not around. Personally, it never sounded quite right to me, so I've taken the liberty of changing it a bit. I've also repeated the 2nd verse to make the piece a bit longer.

The lead is meant to be sung, with the piano (called "Lead" here) coming in only where the singer is not singing. (Or perhaps the "lead" instrument could play the melody quietly along with the singer).
