Improvised madness

Here is my old band, Phonic playing an improvised gig. I was "directing" the first two songs. Bassically everybody follows me thru the jam. ... 16_vbr.m3u

Whoa, there's some great stuff in this thread! My stuff pales in comparison, but I post it in the spirit of community.

We're wrapping up a "vanity project" CD now; it's one of those just-for-the-fun-of-it things. No fancy bass playing here, just whatever the songs called for.

It's not mastered yet, but here goes:

- Coming Home Baby
Instrumental. I used a homemade P with Pyramid flats and a DiMarzio Model P pickup.

- Red House
The guitar player on this cut has a regular gig with Kenny Aaronson. He was supposed to lay back on the solos but by the 3rd turn-around, he was balls-out. We kept it in. I used my MIA P with La Bella rounds.

You can find three recent tracks of my Jazz bass here:
Captain Paradox Demos

Television Man is done using a Boss OC-2 and Line6 DL-4 for the main part. Also used a Moog Rogue, and a Waldorf XT for various parts in the middle.

All I Want To Do has some Moog underneath a smooth bass solo using Tech 21 XXL Bass into a Sansamp Bass DI. Listen to this one loud to hear everything going on.

The Water is just straight up into my little Ampeg.

Comments/feedback on our tunes would be greatly appreciated! :)

Can we perhaps move this thread to the "Groove Vault"?

Would that be a better location for all this?

Here's my just-deceased rock covers band Rusty Nail ( Rusty Nail website), playing some old favourites, these from a not-too-well-mixed studio session.

Addicted To Love

Sweet Child O'Mine

Whole Lotta Rosie

Nothing subtle here, just lots of good fun music!

The three survivors that are still together, myself, Dean and Tina, are currently working up a Fleetwood Mac tribute, which we hope to start gigging in May or June.
Meantime, Rusty Nail are having a fairwell gig/party at a pub in Liskeard, Cornwall, called the Barley Sheaf. This was the venue for the band's first gig nearly 6 years ago, so a fitting end!

This is my original band GO we been together about 11 years and have a new record coming out in the fall and here are the first 2 tracks. Recorded with a Smith era 83 Pbass through my 69 SVT decked and a 2nd line from my Sansamp blended the signal and got a killer tone. I also played with a Tortex .88 Pick to get the attack I wanted.
Something New
So Let Down
This is from our 1st album
Something older

Vintage Fender basses and 70's SVT's that about sums it up for me.

Straight off the mixing desk at my blues trio gig last night. Dark Star P with TI Flats. The sound guy had a DI signal as well as the cab miked, but not sure if he blended them or just used the DI signal.

I've been playing this on n off game with music buddies of mine where you record and mix an idea in 2 hours or less. Drum/Rhythm loops are allowed. Nothin' fancy but fun to create none the less.

Songs for Dancing with my Lovely Wife

Fingers of Fury

Love=Saturday Music

Chimp Brain

Brain Loves Microchip

Redeemer Fish

Another project I'm a part of just finished up a studio block and is mixing so I hope to have some more stuff to share soon. [smilie=food-smiley-004.gif]

Links: Yanno, you live a very short time and then you spend a very long time dead so eat great food, love extra hard, hold on for the ride, and play some bass along the way.
