When it's not enough to be ridiculously talented on just one instrument...
Understand the title of the thread after watching the video! Not my cup of tea but wow!
The first 50 seconds,I say"The bass line is wrong.
Ummmmm, are we forgetting the insane genius of Prince?
Not at all.
Just wondering about who the people are out there, who don't know the man's legacy. Good to see a starter post showing someone like the guy here...his musicianship is alive!
What? No bass solo? Lame!
Let's see him do that while actually playing a sax!
Big deal. I can do that and in addition I can play "Flight of the Bumble Bee" on my Taurus Pedals.
And I think Scott Devine actually said that.
Who can prove that left hand is really his?
I love the idea of doubling on bass and a keyboard, and I think it makes lots of sense in this environment where a bass guitar might not always be the correct voice for the low register.
We opened a few years ago for a band called Pimps of Joytime. Their guy had a Hofner and a Minimoog, which I though was both cool and also the strangest combination I could imagine. I loved it!
Damn... but put on some clothes before videoing next time.
I took a guitar over to the local luthier & was talking about changing pickups in it, he grabbed it & ripped into George Lynch & Alex Lifeson riffs that sounded fan-bloody-tastic.
I brought it home & immediately posted it for sale, & haven't played guitar since.
He was wearing a shirt but it burst into flames during the previous song.
Impressive from a technical skills perspective. I certainly couldn’t do that.
But I started on jazz. My roots go back to the bebop and progressive styles. And from a purely musical and jazz perspective, I have mixed feelings about the performance.
But maybe that’s just me.
Guy certainly has skills. No two ways.
