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!
My first released single, published by CD Baby – For a long time I wished to restart producing my own music. This song was worked during the last months, actually with an idea that lived with me for a long time, and was developed to the final stages as soon as I took the decision to become a full-time musician and music teacher.
In this song, you will hopefully find hints of the music world that you know I love – my vision of Yes Music, with the eternal presence of my musical hero, Chris Squire. The emphasis on the tone of the Rickenbacker bass, Moog Synths and bass pedals, odd-time meters, and puzzle-layered vocal harmonies are elements that always have floated in my imagination – although in this composition I tried to join them in a way that sounded simple and intuitive to the listener, and the first listener was me! The lyrics are in Portuguese, but whether you understand or not the words, you are invited to picture your own scenery as you listen to it.
Thank you for being with me through this journey .

Today I have purchased a license for Reaper, thanks to the kind contributions of my dear Patrons at https://patreon.com/miguelfalcao. This will not only allow me to make more and better music and videos, but also to support the Reaper developers themselves, who make such a great software for musicians. I feel happy, and more determined to keep doing what I love. Thank you so much to my dear Patrons, more good things to come! 🎶🎸❤”Hopefully, Eventually” Miguel

Here is the last video for 2020. “The Ancient”, side 3 of Tales From Topographic Oceans. This is probably the first bass cover of this song, at least in YouTube! I also covered Chris’ beautiful vocal harmonies. I hope you enjoy it and wish you all the best for 2021! Thanks for being here.
I announce to my dear friends that I will keep the 2020 special fee of my bass lessons until January 15th 2021, just in case you need ideas for your Christmas gift or for a friend… or if you have a bass oriented New Year’s decision 🙂 If you start the lessons within this period, the fee for you will not be raised afterwards. Of course neither it will for the current students. If you’d like to know more about it please visit my lessons page and read about what I have to offer and some opinions of my current and former students!
