Usher - Confessions

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by gazman_res, Dec 30, 2004.


  1. Okay, most likely a flame is gonna be started.
    But i was just listenin to this on the way to work.

    Especially the song Work it Out. The bass is very smooth, heaps sweet and sits just right in the mix.

    Just wondering what rig/setup the bass player used on this album.

    A long shot i agree.. but any help would be greatly appreciated.. :)

    this is my confessions just when I thought I had said all I could say my chci on the side says shes got one on the way... :cool:
     
  3. I wouldn't be surprised at all if it was a keyboard bass. Damn Rap/Pop/R&B artists, denying our brothers work!

    eh? modern Rap and R&B has more full live bands these days than ever. If not on the recordings, then on tour. If anything, more bassists have gotten really hot gigs due to this.
