    Hey all,
    Check out my old 97' Yamaha bbg4 making all these different sounds. My whole record is made with just this bass, drum loops and my voice. Here is a new video! We filmed this in my hometown. Even got one of my high school teachers in the video. Thanks for taking the time to open this thread and check it out. Have a great day!

    Thank you! You are too kind my friend! If you’re feeling up to watching another one.... You might like this one too... I do these songs live with a looper. Here’s one of my other songs done with the looper.

    Hey Craig,

    Very nice job on these. I think your work is very creative and has potential to gain great popularity. I particularly like how tight the two tracks are and the clear, defined quality of the individual parts you've created.

    I think Still Here is a super vid. Music is great and the footage is both entertaining and funny.

    Best wishes for success!

    Nice! If I didn't know the bass you were using beforehand then I would have asked afterwards:thumbsup:
    I guess you can let us know what strings?

    Good Job on the video; including music and production. Excellent camera work and scenery. Very effective use of sites in your city!

    No....you can always have the other one that can make the impossible difference. I have 3 good different basses, but still didn't decide which is the one for the most time.

    Nice video, however, this is Talkbass. Talk of "one bass" is not allowed here.

    Thank you pbass888! I was born in 73' so the late 70's and early 80's started it all for me. I appreciate the kind words of encouragement!

    Hey Koog! Thank you so much for taking the time to watch these videos! My brother did all the filming and editing of the video. We came up with different concepts together and just filmed a bunch of stuff. It's really been a lot of fun, and he's the perfect guy to make my videos since he's known me my whole life and gets my goofy humor. All the best!

    Ahh yes, my absolute favorite strings, earnie ball Cobalt!! Absolutely the greatest strings I've ever used. I've always been a stainless steel junkie, but once I tried these, there is just no going back. They sound like a piano, so rich with tone it's amazing.
