Going For The One – isolated bass
Here is the isolated bass version of my recent cover of Going For The One. Now you can hear the mighty Ranney in all its glory! Chris played it originally on his Rickenbacker 8-string prototype, he would later perform it live (in later tours) with his own Ranney.
Going For The One
Remembering Chris Squire’s 75th birthday, here is one of my favourite bass lines of Chris’, played on the mighty 8-string Ranney bass. Although Chris played it originally on his Rickenbacker 8-string prototype, he would later perform it live (in later tours) with his own Ranney.
To The Moment
To The Moment – one of the beautiful songs rescued by Oliver Wakeman from the period before “Fly From Here”. Chris used the Ranney 8-String bass and I am so fortunate to be able to play it on the almost very same bass!
Montreux’s Theme (Rickenbacker) – isolated bass
Here is the Rickenbacker version of Montreux’s Theme, originally recorded in 2014. There is another version on the Fender Jazz Bass, from which I will make an isolated version soon!
