Back story - I got a call from Terry Brock (toured/recorded with Kansas). We had worked together a few times at Margaritaville/Key West and he had a friend who was a producer/engineer who needed to borrow a bass for a track that he had inadvertently erased the bass track from. We happened to live close by, I brought over some basses for him to try out and he offered me the chance to do some work for him in return.

I can't post music tracks, but this was used on another forum where they posted it. Click the link and go to post #11 and click on "I Believe" in the post.
#11 "I Believe"

Looking forward to your insights. Caveat - the producer loves compression.


Very nice. I would have started going nuts with fills at the end, but when I listen to most music on the radio these days, no one seems to do that anymore.

I've got a Lull bass with Lindy Fralin pickups too, but with that amount of compression, it wouldn't really have mattered what bass you started with. However, the sound works just fine with the rest of the music.

This was an early version of the way we play the song. I'm not sure where the recording came from, it might have been live. The bandleader/singer/guitarist records a lot of stuff with a Zoom recorder. My part has evolved over the years and now includes little pieces of the melody and a few more connections. Mostly, though, I'm just trying to get a super-tight groove with the dumbek player.

Thanks Jeremy,
I should add one thing:
This producer/engineer (guitarist/pianist also) specialized in finding new singer/songwriters who were not under contract. He'd produce their songs as a demo and shop them around. Most productions were fairly bare with the intent to showcase the song/singer. That's what I was expecting.

Turns out that he liked the song, bought the rights and had his wife (already a signed artist) sing the song.

I listened to samples. Pretty creative music. My only comment is that the whole thing sounds kind of muddy to me, no instruments are very clear.

This is one of my more touching pieces...

http://www.box.com/shared/static/5fl62ykmmm.mp3

It's about the angst of a monkey trained as a ninja from birth. Even though he's a killing machine that wreaks havoc on everyone around him, he feels bad about it.....but not too bad. I hope you enjoy it.

So are you using a distortion pedal? If so, which one? Or are you just overdriving the input on your video camera?

You need to get out of your room and get in a band, I'm sure there are a lot of bands that would love to have you.

Plus, your a lefty. Lefties tend to be more inventive, are easier to get along with, hold their liquor better, are more likely to be the envy of both other men and women, are obviously better looking, and of course, are far more modest than any other type of person in the known and unknown universe. Nice playing, too. grin

My first DVD edit into iMovie:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aj_bhISUV6E&context=C3f1b743ADOEgsToPDskJChkFjKWJlToejYMB3ldHt

To keep it shorter I skipped the early verses and choruses and started at the horn riff. This was done for a labor day event for the Santa Cruz Labor Council sometime near the turn of the century. I'll have to look it up for exact date.

Oh, my gosh, that is so FABULOUSLY FUNKY! Have always loved that song, and I like this version even better than the original.

Jeez, I would give anything to be able to play and sing that well! Holy smokes, Wally!

Thanks all for the compliments! Actually that bass with the partially missing headstock yields me the open D which was very effective for this song. I know you were jiving with me JBFLA.

i love both of these videos. i didn't play any bubble bobble when i was a kid, but that is a very fun, complex part. it's good to see you getting a lot of work out of your dingwall.

Bubble Bobble!

My son (about age 5) played that game constantly. I think he got up to about 4,000,000 points. Of course the game wasn't designed to go that far, so weird glitches started happening as the score got higher. Of course I had to play too and I got up to a million.

We still have the Commodore 64 and the game (and hundreds of others) in a box in the garage.

Thanks for the memories. Now I'll have the song buzzing around in my head for months.

My singing has been aided by performing for over forty years with my wife who is a world class singer. It is also great to have had the opportunity to play with so many good musicians over the years.

So after all these years of posts, gear and such, some of you probably wonder if I even play. Well, here's a clip from NYE this year. I think it's OK so I'll post it up. It's a board mix, first time with the new board, recording, etc. Also my last gig with the band. For what it's worth...
