#playforChris7

Finally, #playforChris7 – is ready! Feel free to share it with your friends or communities.

This year we celebrate the Winter Solstice with Play For Chris 7!

There is also a new format that includes Words For Chris, where fans express themselves by words, memories and feelings about Chris.

Thank you to my Patrons for supporting me financially, for believing that what I do is worth it. Thank you to all my friends who encouraged me and shown me excitement in seeing the final result, as I was describing what I wanted to do.

Also thank you for subscribing to my YouTube channel!

We’ve made it again, something different but always special!

I See You

Remembering Chris Squire, six years upon his passing, I have made a cover video of “I See You”, from Yes’ debut album. This video was a suggestion from my dear Patron Doran Cox, who has especially supported this video by becoming a Super Bass Patron. I am also pleased to announce that there will be a follow-up bass-only version of this video!

If you would like to support my musical activities or even suggest a new video, please visit my Patreon page!

As always, thank you to all my Patrons! And… thank you for watching!

Changes

Here’s my bass cover of Changes. My very first cover video playing the Ranney 8-string bass!

In this video, I also payed my tribute to 9012 Live video, my first time seeing Yes on screen and the seeing those wonderful special effects, stage set and music, which I still keep in my favourite versions of many Yessongs.

Statue of Justice

Here’s the first track of Rick Wakeman’s Criminal Record album. It’s been one of my late discoveries, especially because just recently, with spotify, I had access to a good quality recording that I could hear better the bass. I absolutely love this album of Rick Wakeman and the fantastic work that Alan and Chris did with it. Some of its story is displayed on the first minute of the video.
