    Hey guys,

    Just listening to this Kimbra track today and I was reminded of how weird the bassline sounds...its like two basses playing at the same time. If you haven't heard it:

    So I decided to try and learn it, and make a playalong video!

    I wanted to share this seperately and bring this recording to the attention of you guys...VERY interesting bassline.
     
  2. Hi soong!

    Hey you've posted the same link twice in your post - No link to your play-along! ;)

    To me personally, the whole song sounds weird, not only the bass line; Terribly disjointed, as if the ProTools tracks needed to be pushed a little to make them fit together properly! Which is why I find the song very hard to listen to! The worst song on that album, to me. 'Settle Down' would be my favourite.

    Cheers
    Volker :)
