Arctic Monkeys - Four Out Of Five (Bass Cover) w/ Notation Transcription [Nick O'Malley]

  1. Great cover! Is it me or does it feel a lot of the bass lines on the new album are improvised in the sense of little repeating patterns?

    Thanks TheIndieKid!

    Nick's playing is definitely getting more nuanced from album to album. The "simple" patterns are still there, they repeat and gain complexity/nuance as the song progresses at a good ol' Arctic Monkeys fashion!

    Nick's becoming more musical by the year :)

    PS. Sometimes his bass playing on the new record reminds me of later Paul McCartney.

  3. It might not be Nick though :) Alex is said to have played bass a lot on the album. But I know what you mean about the very musical playing. Especially She Looks Like Fun.

    It was Alex on Four Out Of Five!
