I’m ashamed to say I had never heard this song, despite it being a Blues classic. I can see why - enjoyed learning and playing it.

Did a quick and dirty cover with the new bass. The first bar is garbage, because I couldn’t figure out how to properly align the count-in in GarageBand. Also I didn’t EQ anything, it’s just DI as is. I’m probably going to re-do this later with proper mixing, but I can’t be arsed right now.

Don’t worry about the count-in, everyone will be distracted by how awesome that bass is @akos. WOW

btw, the rest of the tune was fantastic, no need to fix it at all, great job!

Well played!

Greetings,
Here’s my take on Born Under a bad sign. Tring to record it, so the bass is up front.
Staying on course with 50 song challenge. I’ll be busy Sunday and Monday so decided to post today. Have a great weekend. :beers:

Great Job @BigAl
Played very very well sir.
Bass is a bit boomy in the mix, but I know you like it that way :wink:

Here is mine.
A quick one to get another off the 50 song list.
I must say working on the Smandl method helped a lot on this tune.

That’s my Elwood 30"short scale all I play is short scale bass guitars due to injury to my left shoulder.

I was born on Friday the 13th, and I’ve had 2 black cats! So no bad sign for me! Buah ha ha!

Just the Skyline series GZ, not the “proper” US made

Hey hey!
Nothing ‘just’ about the Skyline series.
I am officially a true believer in Lakland.
Between you and my bass teacher (a Lakland artist) and a whole lot of bass trying, I have a Skyline 55-02 coming my way (granted its not coming my way until Jan-Feb). I am blown away by Lakland quality in the Skyline series.
