A friend asked me to try his firewire recording interface over the weekend so I put this song together. I spent about an hour total.
I'm a bass player so the bass track is the only live instrument, everything else is looped. I practiced it a couple of times then hit the record button with NO overdubs to get that "live" feel.
It just shows how easy a Mac & Garageband are to use. Other than taking a few minutes to load the software for the firewire unit, it was painless.
Hope you enjoy it. (Don't get crazy about this being in the Jazz section, I just didn't know how to classify it.)

I wan't more of that bass! I won't rate the creativity because there are a lot of overused loops in this song, but the cool bass & the way things are put together would override that anyway.

If you hear any of my songs that you would like to do a bass track for I would love it. I would gladly remove the bass track & upload if you have an interest. Let me know!

We all seem to agree here that you have serious skill on your instrument. I like the sound you get, your touch, your time, and the part you played.

This bass part gives you permission to tag "dude" onto your name.

That is really sweet bass playing! I play bass myself, but I've only played almost 3 years now. But I think it's really a fun instrument. This song is really inspiring for me! I'd love to hear more from you! smiley

Good bass makes the world go 'round. It is the anchor for all things civilized (and un). Those extreme low ends really bent my inner space (headphones on).

Excellent Bass work. How many loops are you using? It sounds like about 5 or 6 to me. Just the right amount to keep the song sounding very clean. Great work.

What a great sound! Loops are also well-chosen. They showcase the bass nicely.

Great bass technique, and great improv. chops as well. I really like your bass EQ also.

Hey Scotty - Realized I haven't commented on this! You da' man ... smiley Love the chunky sound (as always) and your nice touch on the strings. The "live" run through on the song gives a great feel, and the bass harmonizing with the melody lines is beautiful.

You know Scotty....I know very little about music. Sure..I was in band (clarinet)...sure I sing. But everything I've done with music has been involved in playing the "higher"/melody instruments. Listening to this song really gives me a higher respect for was a bass can do.

Thanks for opening my eyes.

Nicely done... good jam, especially for only one take! The bass is mixed well with the loops. And right when the loops start to sound repetitive, you mix it up. Kudos.

I would have given the performance more than 5 stars if able!

I regagnize those loops... !!!

Nice grove.. Nice bass work.. Pop and a slap./....

Music has a very interesting direction.. and the baSS IS HELPING TO MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN through the transitions.. I know that bass is not a loop.. No loop things like that...

The greative use of bass is making this song... and I find it interesting how important the bass really is here......

your bass playing is really good, and I really like the melodies. I love the sound of the IV-v chord progression. Just avoid using the stock garage band loops if you can, they are used quite a bit. Other than that the song is really cool

SWEET bass tone and playing. Love the funky stuff. Pretty sharp attack on the bass for this one. Dont think is is slapped but doesnt sound like just fingers either (but it probably is). Sounds great. Amazing piece considering all of it is loops but the bass. Truthfully the bass is what you pay attention to most in this song anyway. Well done. If you want to do any basslines, msg me, I have a few songs that you may like. One, need a "Primus" like bassline on it.

Well I'm hearin' this gem for the first time.... Love it.... The bass playing is the kind of bass playing I love to hear all night long.... It proves that bass playing can be a main instrument in a band, like Animal Logic. Wonderful style..... To me it is beyond Jazz it is just plain good music! And that is the kind of music I like to listen to...good music! Keep more of this stuff comin' PLEASE!

Peace,
Tony

Listening again. Wants to give a better comment. I like the bass guitar runs in this tune.. I like the looping characteristics you choose in the garageband program. Heavy bass.. nice runs.. Would sound great with vocals. You've got great insight and sort of like that funky feel.. that is your style. It would be cool if you added some vocals to some of your stuff.. Not saying me.. others.. Bless you. Wayne
