Around six years ago I was experimenting with video effects and recorded this cover of Machine Messiah. Since then, YouTube’s audio and video compression capabilities improved a lot so I figured that this one could be sort of remastered both sonic and visually. As I had the green screen behind me, and although the lighting put a big shadow on it, I decided to make some different video effects, not as flashy as the first version. Most of all, I hope now the sound is better and you enjoy this cover of one of my favourite Yes compositions and basslines!
Bass: Rickenbacker 4001 CS
Strings: Warwick Red Strings (45-105, stainless steel)
Preamp: Sansamp Bass Driver DI (BDDI)
Effects: Amplitube 3 – T-RackS CS Vintage Compressor 670
Signal path: Bass→BDDI→PC→T-RackS

Last week, Chris Squire revealed some of his bass guitar most inspiring songs. This is a great opportunity to know a bit more about the bass sounds that influenced our hero throughout his career. There is even a YouTube and Spotify playlist to listen to the songs selected. Thanks, Chris!
It will be a good 2012! Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year. Miguel

For professional reasons I have had little time to make a brand new clip, so I recycled an old bassline recording of mine. November is coming – Happy 40th birthday “Fragile”!!

Scottish musician Steve Glasgow has made incredible bass transcriptions from several artists, including YES.
Besides downloading the scores and tabs, you can read Steve’s in-depth analysis of the basslines, which are very interesting and show the dedication and valuable work of this fine musician.
