bass solo


A bass solo is what you usually realize has happened when it’s over, and the rest of the band joins in again. To be witnessed in Jazz caverns, or, on record, back in the hippie days: even the drummer and the bass player were allowed to solo, sometimes during the same song (overly democratic as these times used to be).

Most of the time a bass solo is so low (in both senses), many people only perceive the lowering of the overall volume…

But this little piece of music here is different, since there are no other instruments. So if you notice there’s music, you notice the bass solo.

bass & gear: Gibson EB3 bass, SWR SM 400 amplifier

Of course I wore my long hair wig when playing this!

  1. it’s somewhere dark, but there are streetlights. the beer is cold, but it’s warm outside.

    content, but not joyous. mindful, but not quiet at peace. that’s how that made me feel.

    so…what music would i hear if i was in morocco, the hot dust hitting my face?
