    And recorded it.

    I was reading all this talk about 2 piece bands and stoner metal bands. Didn't seem too hard, so I broke out the Rick, turned up the distortion and pressed "record."

    It may not be a masterpiece but at least it has a hook. :)

    One bass. One take. It was fun.


    Go here to the first song "You Can't Change The World." http://www.reverbnation.com/#!/nelsonmontana

    Sounds like a guitar.. not a bass. Is it?

    It sounds good as a wee demo.

    I'd like to hear more low end in there, maybe a little less fuzz or low clean tone mixed with the fuzz. With a riff like that it needs to kick you in the chest as well as the head! :D

    And turn up the vocals on the verses!. It sounds very interesting but I can't discern the words. I'd track the "Can't change the world" parts with some more vocal harmonies. That would sound awesome.

    Wish all my first takes were as competent!

    :bassist:

    Yeah, just a Rickenbacher bass. That's the thing when you get into heavy distortion (which I normally never use). The difference between guitar and bass blurs.

    I might go back and actually try to do something with it. But it was more a statement on minimalism.

    I didn't really have lyrics for the verse. I was too lazy to write them so as an inside joke, I was reciting the words to the song "You Light Up My Life. " LOL!!!

    Wow, that heavy distortion really makes it sound like a guitar!

    That's funny about the lyrics. I write stuff in a similar way, get the hook line, then just yadda yadda the verses until I have to knuckle down and write proper words!

    Good for you making a statement anyway.
