I thought it would be a good idea to share our bass covers here. I hope it may encourage some of you to get into recording, finding tabs by ears (or on the internet), playing the songs that really make your heart vibrate. All of that means great fun and great progression. It could also be a way to give and receive advices and constructive criticism about our playing techniques, rythmic accuracy, groove, bass tone … in a nutshell I think it would be great !
If you don’t know how to create a backing track from an album track, and replace the existing bass line by yours, we discuss the subject here : "remove" the bass line from a track - #14 by terb
Of course there’s no minimum skill and difficulty level required and remember that we’re all here to progress and have fun. So, don’t be shy, make and share your bass covers ! these could be pure audio tracks, or video if you prefer (easy to upload and share on Soundcloud and/or Youtube, hoping the ContentID filter won’t be too rude with us)
So I’ll start. I’ve already shared this first cover as an audio track, but Youtube have since accepted the video, so here it is :
Amyl & the Sniffers - Gacked On Anger
I also made a second cover yesterday, of a song from the same band and same album :
Amyl & the Sniffers - GFY
Don’t hesitate to comment ! Every feedback is precious for a learning bass player.
I can’t wait to listen/see your covers
