Behind the scenes bass songwriting/tracking session!
First, to hype up my upcoming video/single release: "Ninpo Destroyed The Demon Droid." The drum part heard in this is from a phone app, and I ended up liking the groove and kept it. This bassline is much evolved in the mix I edited today, but these elements are still there. ...but what's to hype? Sales? Nope. It will be free to stream off my YouTube. Why you're going to want to see the video is because there are going to be 7 different guitars taking turns at parts for tonal comparison, and lead lines aplenty. Can't wait, right? Sorry, still working on it. 😀.
My approach to bass playing is quite different from my guitar playing, and it's something I never properly practice. I do rehearse individual parts I'm tracking until they can be played smoothly, but that's on a song to song basis. .
*this bass is the cheapest piece of crap I've ever laid fingers on. It's Z grade, soft maple neck has a crater missing by its headstock, but it's still neck heavy since it's body seems to be some attractively figured Styrofoamwood. It's frets were as sharp as 20 little chisels before I filed them. Why would I play it? It sounds great because of quality custom pickups and evidently figured Styrofoamwood is highly resonant. The neck shape is friendly and the crater is not where I contact the neck. It's crappiness is it's personality. Wabi sabi and stuff...
