I first heard this song some 7 or so years ago in 2010. I performed it for a friend’s masters recital, and just about muddled my way through it. It was a revelation – an absolutely massive tune, with incredible bass playing throughout. I feel like I finally have a 5 string that can do the tune justice, having got my Anaconda Ultra J5E late last year. I’d like to think my technical ability has improved in 7 years too!
Hope you enjoy this worship tune, whether you’re religious or not. I’m the latter, but surely music is universal.
Just a quick post to mention that Elli Ingram’s album Love You Really was released a couple of days ago. I played on 4 tracks: ‘Sweet & Sour’, ‘Better Alone’, ‘Stone Cold’ and ‘Before The Funeral’. Thanks to Felix Joseph for getting me involved! Love You Really is available everywhere on this link.
A few weeks back, Rasmus Paulson contacted me on Instagram about doing a collaboration. He sent me the drum track, and I came up with the rest. After sending my tracks back to him, he put together this video. Enjoy!
The other day Pete & I did a Facebook live video to support his Kickstarter Campaign. We jammed through ‘Georgy Porgy’, one of my favourite Toto tunes (starts around 2:30 in the video). It was great fun to play together as the sun went down over the London skyline. Check it out, and please support the Kickstarter if you can!
When I was a student living in Leeds, I saw Maceo Parker play with his killer band. His bass player was (and I think still is) Rodney ‘Skeet’ Curtis. What a beast of a player! So much pocket, tone, EVERYTHING! Afterwards, I looked him up – he played for Parliament-Funkadelic, and also on this cut by The Whatnauts.
