Description
Trying out my new Godin fretless bass. This song uses 3 of the Tumi loops: one drum loop, one piano loop, and a soundscape.

Very Good Soundscape
This is one of the more interesting uses of the TUMi loops
that I have heard. Excellent bass playing. I'm reminded of
some of Patrick O'Hearn's new age/ambient work here.

Very Good Soundscape
"interesting use" of those loops.....

Quite.

I hope no one forces me to admit precisely how I used them. Slicing that
drum loop was the least drastic "use".

Ok, here's the most fun one: I used the SoundScape loop as an Impulse
Response for the Space Designer reverb. You can hear it over the bass
harmonics.

Hey, it said "use". No one said I actually had to *play* the loops......

Very Good Soundscape
:) cool. Thanks for explaining what you did, Victor. BTW, I think your score
should be higher than what it is now.

Got Bottom?
Not enough songs feature bass prominently- this is quite
an exception. Good use of the TUMI loops and really cool
bass playing- bass with emotion.... huh.

Good stuff.

fretless workout
The Godin has an excellent sound. You might even bring
it up more in the mix. Very nice work.

A nice escape
Good one! This song helped me drift away. As usual
solid production and performance. Nice integration of
loops and whatnot. Creates a nice atmosphere.
Groove on.

Nice with the fretless. I used to play with a bassplayer that used one some years ago. Reminded me of that:-)

Gives a special sound to it.

You certainly know how to treat it:-)

Well done!

Ridin the range...
Like an old cowboy song gone wrong. Half expect to see
some aging poke in an electric cloke come in from the rain.

Very nice...sending this one to my brother...he's gonna like it
for sure.

thanks for sharing

need more
Very cool! The harmonics are nice. Excellent chill music. We need more bass, that's all there is to it!

If you ever re-mix or re-record, consider a track played with an Ebow... It's a little tedious gettin' the sweet spot consistently, but once you do...!!!

After a day's work in the fields I enjoy playing the pump organ. Some of it pleases my wife Dotty, and some of it pleases the neighbours. I hope it may please you too.... [see more]
