This is the 2023 “Post your covers !” thread, created because the initial post is reaching the 10000 posts (and it causes technical problems). I will most probably create one new post per year, in the future.
So, for the newcomers, here is the concept :
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
Also @PamPurrs and @John_E created a great and useful tutorial about how you can record yourself : Pam and John's "How To Record Yourself" Parts 1 & 2 (Audio & Video)
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)
A cover can be either a video (more fun) or an audio track (easier at first). Please, when you share a cover, I ask you to write very clearly in your post the artist/band and the name of the song. It helps me a lot keeping a list of all our covers, and do a yearly count.
