    An unfinished song that I'm tinkering with. I actually started it to test out my new Gibson Les Paul Faded, but the bass part kind of took over. BTW, I've owned a lot of Gibby LPs, but this little Faded model is probably the best LP I've owned. Go figure.

    Anyhow, I'm still tweaking and working on the arrangement. Obviously needs a better ending, blah, blah, blah.

    You have to wait a few seconds for the player to pop up.

    A New Fusion

    Thanks!

    Good job.

    But I'm confused about the "Rickenbacker 4003 content" part.

    The bass is a Rickenbacker 4003. It's one in my avatar. Although I thought it sounded kind of Jazz Bass-ish in this particular setting. Anyhow, it's a bass forum so I didn't think saying "Gibson LP Faded Content" would go over very well. The Ric kind of took over the song anyway.

    Thanks for the clarification. I thought you had a Les Paul bass.

    Thank you so much! :)

    I still need to work on the drum track. There isn't a single drum fill in the whole thing. That will be the next session I work on it ;)

    Nice! Are you playing with a pick there?

    Drums are nice too. I, personally like sparse drums. Assuming it's a drum loop/machine/thing.

    Yeah. I play with a pick 90% of the time. I played bass for about 10 years before I played guitar and luckily already was used to a pick. Picks on bass are pretty maligned sometimes. I think Entwistle on Live at Leeds was where I just assumed bass was played with a pick. McCartney was (is) a big influence too, along Chris Squire later on.

    Thanks!! I've uploaded some things here before. I'll search and link them. I write music for corporate video producers, so some of my stuff is pretty straight forward.

    I like what you have so far. I understand it's a work in progress and want to hear the final product. I know you are going to change the drum part; so, the only thing that I noticed is that the tone on the distorted guitar part sounds a bit harsh against the bass lines (which are very cool) and the clean guitar part.

    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

    Love the sound and the way the Ric fits in. To be honest, it sounds a bit more like Geddy than Squire - are you picking close to the bridge or further north?

    Also - do you have more of your tracks online?

    Thanks! I LOVE Geddy's playing, he's the reason I bought a Ric back in the '80s. Little did I know he was using a Jazz Bass too by then. I probably steal more from Rush than Chris Squire. Oops, I mean I'm more "inspired by" Geddy. My bad ;)

    My picking hand is more or less over the treble pickup.

    Here's another tune I posted here a while back. This is the Ric 4003 again.
