FreeBird Hijack!

 

The six string virtuosos have their GoG competition (but whatever they do in the privacy of their own bedrooms is their business).  It's time for a special bass only track - something for the festive season, yet challenging.  In honour of Rodman's new bass for Christmas,  I suggest Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses: 

http://customsforge.com/topic/33151-christmas-wrapping/?hl=waitresses

 

Of course, being a FreeBird challenge, points will not be assigned.  So all entries will be accepted and appreciated, be they emulated bass, tubas through microphones or kazoos through octave pedals.  The wackier the better.

 

Have at 'er!  (and take that FreeBird police!)

Practice now and surprise your friends on New Year's Eve :D

I felt that this bend solo is easier then in Bee Gees tune, so that's why Beggie.

http://i.imgur.com/5Pxk91P.jpg

That was trickier with those chords.

 

http://i.imgur.com/qDP010u.jpg

Difficult.

Very fun. Solo is quite something, but doesn't look too techniquely complex.

Christmas Wrapping ...  I was working on it this last week, so this isn't a first try 97.67%

 

I played it on this - 34" scale.  Because it uses piano tuning pegs instead of machine heads, I tune it to D standard and put a capo at the second fret.  That way I can down tune to Eb standard by just moving the capo.

Dear Santa Roddy,

 

Have I been a good enough boy to get one of those Marcus Miller Jazz basses under the tree this Christmas.  PleeeezPrettyPleeez.

 

I know that chimneys are small and basses are big, so I would be really happy if you gave me all of the parts except for the body so I could make another of my homemade FreeBird creations.

Here's my first goes of the week on Bass......

 

Muse first as I love this old Smiths song.....this version is a lot different though 

 

 

rmomhj7f7c3eacb6g.jpg

 

onto the Bee Gees, which i should improve on over the course of the week........

 

 

bz6a7s7ozpc9b8d6g.jpgThen on to Derek and the dominoes everything was going reasonably well until the end when all of a sudden my fingers stopped working, literally just completely stopped listening to my brain and just seized.

after an hours rest i gave the  Bee Gee's Lead a go.......

 

 

cp900czpex910n26g.jpgfollowed by the Muse Rhythm which was a lot harder than i thought it was going to be (I'd already played the bass and lead before but not the Rhythm)

 

 

ewbwmbb2bbnlv6h6g.jpglots of room for improvement on songs I am familiar with so looking like its going to be a busy week  :)

11degrees F and snowing, maybe that's what i need to improve... surely not the two months practicing i've been able to do recently.

someday maybe i'll be as good as the others on this site.

The ONLY reason you won MC Lead, is because I didn't have access to my guitar yesterday.

 

Remember my words.

 

But also, thanks, because you have now inspired me to not settle for the first score I get above 99%. I will keep pushing as close to 100% as I can. :)

Beautiful bass @@Rodman!  How does it sound?

 

I've been lusting after a Squier Classic Vibe 60s (very much like yours - white with tortoiseshell scratchplate, RW fretboard), I just love that look (and the warm sound that would probably be a waste on RS and my undeserving hands!). :)   :wub:  

 

How soon IS too soon to get a second bass anyway?  :huh:  :lol:

Please, please let me never hear this version again!  :lol:  :P (just joking! ;) )

Just because.... :P

http://i.imgur.com/Hng8Pdd.png?1

That's better!  :D   I've nothing against Muse to be fair, I just much prefer the original.  Please, please let me hit those two(?) notes I missed!

 

 

Was really surprised to see my first song selection get picked the same week I put it up.  Dammit, I'd better improve on it now! :Phttp://i.imgur.com/QZ8I21g.png?1

(Played it lots in LAS, but my first ever play of it in SA revealed my triplets are very hit or miss!) :wacko:

 

 

Was very surprised not to get a red X....I think in places it's a harder track than Bee Gees.

Great track, I like this a lot!
