Parallels

One of my all-time favourite bass lines and songs of Yes – Parallels, written by Chris Squire, from the album Going For The One.

SETUP: Early 70’s Fender Jazz Bass, a brand new set of Blue Steels, Sansamp Bass Driver DI, GR3 “bass pro” ampeg SVT emulator. The sansamp settings make a huge difference but I don’t remember them. If you need more details just send me a message.
