Hi there! Today, I‘d like to invite you, to watch me playing my 1973 Jazz Bass. The bass is all original (except for the Badass II bridge, and I removed the pickguard for the „Jaco look“), and I played it through my EBS MicroBass II and MultiComp, directly into the console. What I‘m doing here, is a great exercise, I like to do regularly. I’ve subscribed to many YouTube channels, providing jam tracks with no bass (just seek for „jam track“ „backing track“ „no bass“). At the end of technical practice sessions, I play to 2 or 3 new backing tracks that I‘ve never heard before. Sometimes, the chords are provided in the video or its discription, sometimes you have to hear and transcribe them yourself. This way, you find yourself in a situation that ist quite common for session musicians. You hear a play back and get chord sheets, and off you go. It really teaches you to listen, to recognise, and to react spontaneously. For this video, I’ve only listened very briefly (few seconds) to the tracks, to set the volume levels right for recording! It also shows, why engineers and producers love old Fender basses: they just work! ;-) Sure, in the mix, you wouldn’t turn the bass up that much, and you would use some compression an de-essing, but the bass sound would be great within seconds! PLEASE use headphones or HQ speakers, bass isn‘t meant to be played back through phones or tablets! Thanks a lot for watching! Likes, comments and subscriptions on my YT channel are always appreciated! Stay safe & enjoy yourselves!
