Steve's Blog: Solo Bass & Beyond

6 songs down…

October 7th, 2005 | 1 Comment | Categories: Uncategorized |

Right, that’s the first 6 songs on the Rise Cd learnt… and my hands are exhausted. Time for a break and a cup of mint tea.

I’m just glad that I’m playing my solo set before Rise’s set, or my hands would be too tired to play! This is like the bass equivalent of circuit training. The masterful thing about it is how he’s managed to write such fantastically busy bass lines without them ever getting in the way of the tunes. If you did this kind of playing in a pop/rock band, it’d sound ridiculous.
