You all… thanks so much for the support and the love!
My own family hasn’t shown the love that I’m getting from my BassBuzz tribe.
Really appreciated, all.
@BassFaceDisgrace - yes, Turkuaz is rad. They’ve played festivals I’ve played before, and they completely own a room from the first damn note. Such a party. And, absolutely going for some of those very tasty Vulfpeck vibes.
@b.s.excavations - I LOVE instrumental music. I’m realizing more and more - with each session I do - that lyrics are the single most distracting thing for my bass ear. I love getting vocal-less tracks. Helps me lock in more, groove more, and… usually… enjoy the tune more!
Pam! Thanks for the good word. I played my 50’s reissue P-bass with a big heap of foam under the bridge. Nickel wound-round strings into (here’s the secret sauce) a 60’s Ampeg B-15 that I borrow from a friend whenever I’m recording. It’s beyond glorious.
We also recorded directly to tape, so that’s a live take from the band. It’s also an extra bit of warm analog tape compression in addition to everything else.
Thanks @sfadams - with the lack of live-music opportunities these days, I’ve leaning more and more on my artwork! It’s real real fun.
