Sin Ain’t what it used to be (fretless bass recitativo)

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

Instrumental, melodic fretless bass (my good old Sekine custom, circa 1985). Solo fretless bass take, doubled with a moog synth and sparse synth pad on the background. Delay, panner and reverbs as only FX here. Simple “recitativo” melody, no solos, no big development other that the repeated coda/cadenza. Performed by DD, Paris, France, July 2017. […]

Very easy solo bass rendition. Besides the […]
