Point me to a few exemplary tunes on which bass chorus is used.
tool uses plenty of it.
it was used a lot more in the 80s...
there are plenty of songs but i am very very lazy... sorry
Thanks for an answer even if it was lazy.
What about the old Doobie Brothers song "It Keeps You Runnin'"? Seems like that had an effected bass mix.
Tony Levin on Peter Gabriel's "Don't Give Up"
Pino Palladino on Paul Young's "Wherever I lay my hat"
and many more...
Listen to the Police. All of it. It may not have chorus on every song, but you will learn alot about playing cool basslines.
How about 'New Years Day' by U2
I use chorus a lot when my jazz ensemble is doing Weather Report covers. Especially Birdland.
a lot of guns n roses stuff has it.
I'm not sure if it's a chorus or a flanger, but Ted Nugent's "Stranglehold" comes to mine.
When I want to sound like Peter Hook, I hear chorus in a lot of New Order stuff
Van Halen's cover of "You're No Good".
I think that's a chorus, right? Might be a flanger or phase shifter or some other chorusy thing. Sounds great though.
Hey basstriaxis, I bet I could pay my mortgage with the money you have tied up in patch cords.
Do you hook every thing up at once? I played with a guitar player that had like ten pedals or something like that. His sound would crap out at a gig and he would have the toughest time trouble shooting it during a song.
Chorus works great on high, languid fretless solos...
Joy Division, Magazine.
I use it most of the time, it really helps cut through guitars.
and, of course, The Cure
Tony Butler from Big Country used chorus quite a bit on a lot of their tracks!
I just heard "Sweet Child of Mine" on the radion on the way home last night, and it sounds like Duff is using a chorus on the high end of his signal.
A number of Journey tunes have a very tasteful chorus, which also sounds like it is just on the higher frequencies.
I think maybe that was a phase shifter. I may be mistaken.
I think that's the old MXR Phase 90.
Really? I have an original MXR Phase 100. I'll have to try it out.
