Another Lakland DJ-5 Soundclip -- Erykah Badu's "Boogie Nights"

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Lokire, Apr 12, 2006.

  1. I put my favorite set of strings, an 8-month old set of DR Hi-Beams, on my Lakland DJ 5 (with Fralins) today and now the bass smokes! I don't know why, but newer strings just don't sound or feel right to me anymore.

    Anyways, a couple days ago I learned the bassline to Erykah Badu's "Boogie Nights". Killer bassline and incredible tone (hope I did it some justice :ninja: ). I recorded myself playing over the original (with the bass EQ on the track way down).

    Going direct through my Gallien Krueger 800RB, with a bunch of bass EQ boost and a bit of Hi-Mid boost. Then through some compression.

    This song is super fun to play. Let me know what you think! :)

    (btw: slapping isn't my strong point, but I'm getting there!)

    The Lakland Sounds SWEET and i'm a DR guy myself.
    But a little more sustain for some notes there will make it perfect man.
    You play realy great!

    I dig your playing! I just can't stand Lakland necks, specifically the frets! I just could not get a clean, non-fret clicking sound on mine! But...I dig your playing!

    Note to Dan Lakin: Please use medium jumbo to jumbo frets on your necks please!
  10. This one was refretted before I got it. With Jumbo frets :)
  11. WoW! Sounds good man...that's a perfect example of how bass is supposed to interact with the other musician's, awesome song too, thanks for turning me on to it.

    Oh my, that's nice!!

    Does Lakland even offer jumbo frets as an option? If not, he should! Geez! I briefly owned a Skyline 55-01 and never even thought to do a re-fret! Oh well!
