The Old Country – bass solo

Posted by admin under DedeLand Music News, music (No Respond)

An idea for those who want to break with the supporting/rhythm section role of the bass guitar (albeit occasionally) to play alone, or play chordal and melodic songs This is quite easy to learn (particular on a 5 string)

“The Old Country” by Nat Adderley and Curtis Lewis. Very easy solo bass rendition. Besides the simple and low key arrangement, it is made even easier using a custom made instrument specifically designed for this type of chord-melody playing. Bass by Andrew drake. http://www.drakecustombass.com/gallery/diaz-custom-5/

Just the 16 bar melody/theme played twice. Performed by Daniel Diaz in Paris, December 6th 2016.

Comments appreciated/Cheers/DD

Romeo and Juliet “Love Theme” (Nino Rota) easy solo bass rendition.

Posted by admin under DedeLand Music News, music (No Respond)

Romeo & Juliette “Love Theme” originally titled  “What Is a Youth?” (re-titled “A Time For Us” for a later hit-single version by Henri Mancini in 1969)
From Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet score, composed by Nino Rota
One of the most classic and memorable romantic themes of any film, naive but beautiful. I play just the A section and something not in the original as a short B-section, also an intro and coda from another version. The original has a longer verse/B section.

Practising solo bass for my upcoming Low Vol2 project, this is one track I won’t record (I choose another from the same composer instead of this), but realized how easy it is to play a simple solo/chordal arrangement when you have an instrument specially build for that. Thanks Drake Custom Bass and Guitar. Solo 5 string electric bass, tuned EADGC.

Very easy to play alone in any 5 string bass guitar.
Recorded Friday December 2nd 2016 at home in Paris.

Dos temas de adios…

Posted by admin under DedeLand Music News, music (No Respond)

“Réquiem + Himno” es la segunda pieza que escribí dedicada a mi madre, al día siguiente de su muerte (7 de Noviembre de 2016). La primera “In loving Memory” fue grabada rápido el día mismo, esta llevo mas tiempo. Quería grabar mi piano acústico en casa y una orquesta de contrabajos (unos 12 en total) al arco, muy laborioso.
Mi madre, sin ser una gran melómana, fue tal vez la única persona de mi familia que me influenció y marco a fuego en algún aspecto musical durante mi primera infancia. Fue gracias a ella que, siendo un niño pequeño, descubrí a los Beatles, a Joan Manuel Serrat y a Frank Sinatra. El gusto infantil de estos tres artistas nunca me abandono.
Ni siquiera en mis años más recalcitrantes de experto en el rock mas pesado y progresivo osé bajar a los Beatles del trono de mi grupo favorito.
Ningún cantautor, por mas sofisticado que fuera, ni Joni Mitchell ni Dylan ni Yupanqui, ninguno provocó en mi una minima negación de de la importancia de Serrat.
Y mas tarde en mis periodos “jazzeros” disfruté los halagos de experimentados jazz-men en Berklee y en Bs As, quienes se sorprendían que ciertos standards del jazz, sin haberlos tocado nunca, yo podía cantar la melodía y gran parte de la letra. Este conocimiento profundo de la canción (antes que el tema-Standard) fue importantísimo para mí. Eso gracias a Sinatra, eso gracias a mi vieja.
No hay seguramente nada de los Bealtes, ni de Serrat ni de Sinatra en estas dos músicas-homenaje, pero encontraran una gran sencillez y una falta de sofisticación y de complicaciones que mi madre habría apreciado. Convive aquí un sentimiento de soledad y tristeza de mi parte junto con mucho amor y optimismo, característicos de mi mamá.
Gracias a todos los que estuvieron presentes estos días y a quienes la recuerden.
Hasta pronto, DD
