Hello, just finished recording a video of myself playing a transcription of Dexter Gordon's solo on "Fried Bananas". Took forever to get together, but I thought you guys might be interested. I frequently transcribe lines and stuff from Dexter and other horn players, but I've never really tackled a full solo. It's pretty tough on the upright... I think one of the best ways to develop an "individual sound" is to transcribe lines / licks you think are cool, shed them in 12 keys and "insert them" into your playing. I think about this all the time, but then I hear guys like Ben Street play pretty "bass-intuitive" playing and he just sounds so awesome. Hope you enjoy the video... let me know whether you think pursuing a "horn-like" soloing vocab is a worthy endeavor or if we bass players should stick to the stuff that's in the low end!
