Ask YES – Questions to Chris Squire

Last week, Chris Squire received questions from fans all over the world so he could answer via Yesworld.

Luckily enough my question was answered. Here is what I asked and what Chris replied:

Question – “Dear Chris. You mentioned on interviews about ‘Roundabout‘ bass line being doubled by yourself playing a guitar. It seems to me that you might have applied the same technique previously on ‘All Good People‘. Can you confirm this? Thank you.”
Answer – “No, the bass guitar on ‘All Good People’ was not doubled, as far as I can remember; I think that’s purely just a bass guitar. But you are indeed correct that ‘Roundabout’ was me doubling the bass line with a big Gibson electric guitar that belonged to Steve Howe.”

You can check all of Chris’ answers, here.

Heart Of The Sunrise

Rest in Peace, Peter Banks!

Bass: Rickenbacker 4001CS

Strings: Rotosound Swing Bass RS66LD (45-105, stainless steel)

Preamp: Sansamp Bass Driver DI (BDDI)

Effects: Amplitube 3 – Fender Tremolo

Signal path: Bass→BDDI→PC→Amplitube

I used the Jammit version of the track without bass so for the first time I was able to put my bass only on the mix.
