    Side note, I heard that the song was “offered” to Billy Idol first and he passed. Since hearing that a few years ago, I always picture him singing instead. Good cover!

    105 / 5000

    Thanks! The P Bass performer is in my opinion one of the best basses Fender has made in recent years!

  7. I agree. It sure is a great Bass for the money. I went to the music store and tried that blue one and I was hooked. Great action and sounds great. Mine sounds kinda like Steve Harris's blue P-Bass. That awesome Fender tone.

    I just learned that song you were playing. It's fun to play. I like the triplet kinda shuffle feel to the Bass line.

    What's 105/5000 mean?

    Well done, OP. Nice, even playing on those eighths and sixteenths.

    ahahaha i don’t know! However I agree with you that it is very reminiscent of the sound and the aesthetic of Harris' blue pbass, just by chance I released this cover last week!

  10. You are amazing! I just watched some of your Maiden videos and now I'm gonna give up and retire. I just sold all of my Basses. Haha.

  12. The song was my gateway to Simple Minds, one of my favorite bands.

    Very nice tone and nicely done!
