    I recently recorded a new CD of old classics and one of them was done so many times, I wanted to give it a new twist. As it turned out, I put a lot of emphasis on the bass -- especially in the bridge. (Though I played all the instruments).

    I used several basses on the album, but on this track, the Squier J Deluxe just hit the mark -- to me. Solid, fat, clean, clear -- everything I want from a bass. It's ridiculous that it's so cheap.

    Here ya go...

    I just uploaded this. Any comments, questions, suggestions and feedback of any kind is welcome.

    Great clip, I see you appreciate the bottom musically and visually!:D

    The Squier sounds like a Jazz bass should.:bassist:

    True on all counts. Thanks. :)
  4. Nice visuals to go along with the music!!!

    I try to tell everyone that if you didn't know what bass was used for a recording, who cares what the name is on the headstock.

    Sounds great!
  5. Cool...

    Thanks. Here's some more bass heavy surf madness that might make you reconsider that gig.

    Then again, I did't have anyone telling me what I should and shouldn't do! lol!

    Thanks to all. And yeah, I guess I cheated in getting some attention with those pics. : ) Hey, whatever works! lol

    I think this post makes a few points though...

    A bass not only doesn't need to be handcrafted from exotic woods, sometimes a more basic instrument has the more solid sound.

    Squier is doing something really extraordinary right now.

    Stop looking at other musicians as opponents. We ALL make music and the instrument is just a tool.

    Surf music (although not what I ever considered to be my main thing) is just way f*ck*ng cool!

    Greetings from the North,

    Hey..... I've listened to this version of Pipeline a few times now and I'm really starting to like it. Time to hit the beach in a low riding Impala with a couple boards stickin out the back.

  17. I just love that great bass line....The mix is perfect too...Great Stuff!
  18. Wow, hard to believe. What did you send it through for the recording? Sounds almost fretless
  19. +1. Rocco Prestia stated in Bass Player that it's just a piece of wood
  20. This is so NICE sounding!!! +1 for Squiers.....
    This would be a neat tune to work on at lessons too...
