    My bands doing a cover of Lifetime's The Gym Is. I believe the beginning is bass (VERY beginning only instrument at first). Well after I do that I pretty much just follow the root notes, I'm working on changing it up a bit though. Anyways, the bass is a little hard to hear from then on but I'm wondering if you guys can tell if he plays chords at the beginning verse. I don't think he does but I wanna second opinion. It'll be awhile but after we do the cover I wanna record it and I would love to get some opinions on it. Thanks.

    Crud I guess I can't attach MP3's... sorry here:


    and no our band name isnt No Authority :p

    OK dudes come on some help here?
  3. Yes the intro is definately bass chords. The first verse sounds like he plays very light chords. That's just what I hear.

    I think its a drum sampler making a pro tools loop that sounds like a bass when it's run threw a micky mouse phone and sent to the hubble. or it's a bass. but i dont think so.
