As much as I wanted to upload this video up on Youtube, i kept getting copyright claims that blocked the video from being viewed publicly. One option was to upload the video without the original track and just have the bass track but it just felt weird watching a 3+ minute video of just bass (I’ll upload the isolated bass track up on soundcloud along with the transcription as soon as I get that cleaned up and with tabs).
So it’s been a while since I posted up a bass cover but leave it to Justice to light a fire under my ass to get this cover up.
At first, this bass line is deceptively simple but it took me a while to really get all the nuances of the slap patterns which just so happens to change almost every time the theme comes around. It’s sooooo good tho. It took me forever to nail this bass line but I never got tired of playing it.
You can check out the rest of the videos I have in the new “Video” section of the site. I have a backlog of bass covers that I’ve transcribed but still yet to record so I’ll do my best to be a bit more consistent with these.
Gotta keep practicing!
PS. Just a little info on the recording process, this was recorded direct through an apogee duet then I applied EQ, compression, and volume automation in Logic.
So, not so easy but more intuitive than messing with Dreamweaver. I upgraded the basic Destin Theme and did what I could with my limited knowledge of wordpress and I’m pretty pleased with the results. I still gotta mess around with what’s here and I’ll prolly shoot an email (or seven) to the good folks at Bavatosan so I’ll more or less get closer to my ideal site.
It couldn’t be any worse than what I had before (not that I thought it was bad, it was just too cumbersome to update)
Here’s what it used to look like…
Man, this was a pain to update. I used Dreamweaver and just the thought of opening up the program turned me off on posting anything new.
