Here’s my attempt. Couple of hiccups, especially in the second half, but I didn’t want to do a second take, because the sun was killing me. (You don’t say that very often in Ireland…)

Still no EQ, just clean passive tone directly into the Scarlett. My XLR-to-jack cable is on its way, hopefully I’ll be able to use the amp’s EQ for the next covers.


Fantastic @akos - you are really groovin’!
That was GREAT!
Good to see more 50 songs coming.

I have to get back to those after the 2 covers I am working on now.

Btw I did it without tapping my feet. :slight_smile: It was weird for the first couple of days, but I think I’m starting to understand why your teacher doesn’t allow it. (The head bobbing is non-negotiable though.)

I noticed both :grin:

@John_E @akos why does your teacher advocate no foot tapping?

See this thread:


Fun tune.
Timing is key because if you miss the mark it sticks out like a sore thumb.
In trying to match original tone, tone knob rolled off almost all the way and I used the VT Bass DI in B15 mode.


Man this is fun to play, and another example of a song that would suck to play on guitar but is absolutely amazing on bass.

100%, some tricky syncopation and nowhere to hide

Well it’s time to ship this one, my wife says she’s tired of hearing “Christina Aguilera” :roll_eyes:


I get this with every song, except she has no idea who to fill in the blank at the end of the sentence with…ever. A least your wife was a close guess.

Sounds great man, perfect timing and groove.

And Let’s go Yankees!


Thanks John, haha yeah our families sacrifice their sanity for our bass glory…takes a lotta reps
Go yanks! +14 to go for #99 :baseball:
