HA! BASS VST!

no such thing in this studio. 😉

that's a carvin LB70, played into a combination of a sansamp bass di, and a strymon Iridium with an ampeg 4x10 cab.

a little compression, and thats it.

 

thanks jack!

HI LARRY T!

thanks, whammy bar, yes, that'd technically be my first effect! LOL,

on a sears and roebuck electric, had something akin to a bigsby on it...

 

stanley clarke! i used to listen to his early stuff a lot,, return to forever, the tony williams stuff, school days, good stuff!

my first guitar was a sears silvertone electric (no bigsby/whammy....see pic) with an amp as part of the case....worst.fretboard.action.i.have.ever.seen.....i sold it to a friend around 1970 and got a gibson melody maker which had some of the best fretboard action i've ever seen....here is a pic of what i had:

my uncle had that same amp/case combo and danelectro style guitar...

i used to turn it all the way, and just let it feedback. thought that was the coolest thing in the world...

got me started down the wrong path. LOL

Loved it.  Bass sounds incredible, and I particularly like the lead bit that comes in at around 1:20.  Very nice.

 Thanks man the bass is definitely the driver

Maybe I'll bring up the level of the guitar and a bit

Super dynamic playing.   The guitar sounds and the delay on the guitar put it in a perfect spot in the mix.

Premium performance and mix.

Wow, how'd I miss this one. I'm getting a strong Eagles vibe - that was seriously good and I loved it.

Just the usual crit - too short! 😂😂

hi CSW!

i worked on the guitar sounds, as much as the actual parts,

because i had this idea, that they would rhythmically support what the bass is doing,

kind of glue it all together....

i think i actually printed those delays using a Boss DD-200, so once i made that decision, there was no going back!! LOL

HOWDY HO ANDY!

hey man, eagles, on a funk rock song?

hm....

 

maybe 'those shoes'...?!

glad you dig this one, and thank you for the comments!

 

this song, it's kind of like an 'interval' song, between the 1st and 3rd on the album,

the 1st is very introspective and upbeat at the same time,

and the 3rd is a real rocker!!

so i needed something like this, to introduce the rocker tune...

the album songs were never considered as singles, they are expected to be listened to in the 'complete album' setting,

just like the good ole days!!

so yea, maybe longer as a single,

but consider...

most beatles singles were about two and a half minutes, and this one comes in at 2:47, so i'm right on target!!

heheh.

maybe i should add some lyrics about holding some girls hand, or asking for help, or measuring the albert hall for holes.

:)

Nice one Bat.   You put out a lot of great stuff but this has to be one of my favs.     Bass really drives it along nicely and guitars are fantastic as always.     Fun song...great way to start a Thursday morning:)
