Hello to all my fans and followers! I hope you are all doing great.
It’s Alright Bass Guitar Video
So let’s get right to it and I’ll first show you the video of me playing the bass part. Following that I will then add any notes or other stuff you should know about it.
The It’s Alright bass guitar video, like nearly all of the bass parts of my studio recordings, was originally hand crafted as a MIDI bass part utilizing the sequencing in Cubase and and instrument track attached to Spectrasonics Trilian. Trilian has about 30 gazillion different sounds in it, but I pretty much stick to a straight picked electric four string bass sound. Why the pick? Well, for me it gives the sound a much clearer “click” on the note attack and it’s much more bright sounding. Occasionally I will use a fingered bass or a fretless, but mostly I stick to what is basically a standard bass guitar.
As you can see in the video, I use a pick. I’m not a bass player, but I can use my fingers. Although I don’t have the dexterity or strength for it for long periods of time, so I prefer a pick. Also, I like the attack sound. I already mentioned that, I know LOL.
So being a bass part that was originally programmed, I had to actually learn to physically play it for the video. You might be thinking: what if the programmed part was unplayable? Ah… but that’s why all of my music sounds like a real band and not some phony electronic EDM crap. I program the parts of every programmed instrument either envisioning the actual instrument (drums) or holding it in my hand and playing it. Parts are pieced together a bar, a riff, or a couple of notes at a time with no pre-thought regarding the whole. Because of this, my music is really a sum of it’s parts.
Love and Prosperity to you ALL! Have an AWESOME Day!
