… for some reason, linky no worky. Tury the utooby.
Your video is a very good example of the IMPORTANCE of the bass notes' length! And dynamics.
It's one of those my pet peeves that not some many bass players pay attention.
Here is what I'm saying.
Let's listen to the bass notes' length/dynamics from the studio track.
And now, let's listen to the bass notes' length from the live recording.
Interesting study, Who... ^^
What is your assessment of Matt Bissionette's playing on the live track?
Trying to remember who played on the original studio recording... hmmm
David Hungate & pretty much the rest of Toto (before they became Toto).
Long, hard road for me...for years, everything I played was staccato.
Eventually, I landed in a New Country band. That (& a keyboardist with big ears) helped me get on the path to playing notes to their full value.
That's a true sign of a qualitative leap in learning music.
Matt is a serious, Pro musician with clear understanding of the bass guitar role.
About that particular track.
I don't like Matt's interpretation of the song's groove/feel.
I don't know if it's his or the arranger's idea.
Also, in the middle part - starting around 2:23 (with some elements of slap), I hear some "rush-iness" in his rendition.
A very nicely articulated and pronounced long bass notes.
Matt Bisonette is a top player, a serious groove machine. He recently contributed his skills to Jason Becker's 'Triumphant Hearts' album. When you're playing for Jason Becker, you know you're good.
The first time I saw Joe Satriani live, Matt was in the bass chair. He was slugging out massive grooves all night.
