This is my favorite Prince bassline of all time except for maybe Lady Cab Driver.
The 70's Jazz bass sound is prevalent in so much (mostly all) of his music and he's known to lay down some ferocious bass himself as other bassists are well aware of, you would think Fender would consider some sort of one off. Thanks Cheese for the vid.
I know I tell too many stories, but I've lived a Forrest Gump life.
John Niemann is a guy I've been delighted to work with a lot in live sound. He spent a number of years running a monitor desk for Prince and also Ray Charles. He's one of the best board Ops I've ever met, and a nice guy. Last I heard he's living in Japan designing computer-controlled environmental systems for skyscrapers.
John always said Prince was a really tough guy to work for... demanding and volatile, fired people on a whim without thought when his temper was short, but one of the most gifted guitar players and composers you'd ever meet.
I've been on a Prince bassline kick lately. Prince is probably the first slapper I know of who regularly slapped outside of the octave thump and pluck approach. I also think his use of rhythm with accents, dead notes, rests, and syncopation is remarkable.
Brown Mark actually posted a video of himself playing the bass line, on his YouTube channel, about two weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was removed due to a copyright infringement notice.
That Brown Mark video was what put Let'S Work back on my mind.
oh my dayum, that is sick!
I'm digging his falsetto more than the bass line. I wish I could make my voice do that.
My mom had that same pantsuit
That little man in the pantsuit with the falsetto had more women after him than all of TB combined!
