Is Sting using an acoustic upright for the original Police recording of ROXANNE?
I think not.
I thought he used a '51 P-bass...
I didn't think he was...but I saw it listed on www.mysongbook.com as acoustic upright and it got me thinking.
I think he used his Jazz bass, possibly with flats.
you can hear percussive muted pick clicks between the notes of the verse- also a palm-muted pick sound on the F>G G>F pre-3rd verse bit.
Thanks, Mock Turtle.
BigWig Will. Hey, that makes three of us in RI now. Unless you are the kid from Narragansett I've talked to before...
I believe he was using a fretless Fender P bass around then but it's hard to say for sure.
Recorded at Surrey Sound Studios on a 62 Jazz Bass......
Thanks much, Paul A. Finally got a right answer. That moley character sure wasn't any help. Geez.
He uses a '01 Ibanez Fieldy Signature Bass Pro2 head through an Aguilar Limp Biskit special Series magnum 2 Quatro Pro Deluxe.
At least he gave the right answer!!
You what? What would you prefer... you want me to make it up? Or to just plain lie to you? I didn't know what bass Sting used on that record. I've got the album, and though I've not paid particular attention to the bass, I knew it wasn't an upright... Like Bruce said, I gave the right answer... what do you want?!? You didn't even ask what bass guitar he used...
You saying that Sting uses a Fieldy signature bass etc. is ridiculous enough, but the suggestion that he used on a record he made in 1977...
I've just had a look at the sleeve for "Outlandos D'Amour" (the album with Roxanne on) - the bass he's holding is a fretted. Can't tell if it's P or J.
lol. I knew I'd create a little of a stir if I left that message. When I saw "15 replies" when I just came here tonight, I knew something was up.
