Post a cover... Not bass

It seems like there are several members of the forum that have played one or more instruments before picking up the bass. I’d like to see your non bass covers.

Great thread idea!

Here’s all of mine:

My bandmate and I play all the instruments on these, and I sing (badly). I usually do the bass (of course), drum programming, keyboards, singing, and maybe a little guitar; my bandmate does the real guitar.

Previously in our band (decades back), I was the keyboards player, and also did drum programming and split sound engineering with another bandmate.

We’re using these covers to get back in to music production. Probably won’t go anywhere with it, but it’s super fun. We’ll need a real vocalist :rofl:

The only thing I have of me playing guitar, around 1998. I still have that Carvin guitar.

This was the only thing I recorded of me learning to play guitar. I didn’t practice guitar enough and found it very frustrating. I’m enjoying Bass much more.

It’s an old Peter Green tune (Albatross) that I’ve loved since I was young.

Here’s a fairly old dive-bar cover of Rival Sons’ ‘Rich and the Poor’, from their Great Western Valkyrie album (which I played to death back in 2015/2016). I’m the drummer, hence the drum-centric mix and me hogging the camera …

That reminds me, this is @sfadams playing drums on a half-done cover, with me on bass and keyboards. Still pending my bandmate laying down guitars and me singing it:

Alright, now that I’ve found the place for non-bass covers…
It may not be the blues but it sure makes me sad.

Wow! That came out really good. What did you use for the nice spectrum on the left?

Thanks Howard! That’s one of the audio visualization effects in Wondershare Filmora. It’s a pretty cool video editor that I’m just starting to get the hang of. :slight_smile:

Dude, the Joy Division and New Order Covers are amazing! Seriously good. I think I only listened to one or two of these when you posted and I didn’t get back to them. Really well done.
