Hello everyone, although I’m still busier than usual with my professional activities, I managed to make this new video to celebrate Chris’ 70th Birthday. I hope you enjoy it, and celebrate together the music of our hero!

Thank you to all of those who have written me and shown me your support during these last times!

New State of Mind (HD Remaster)

Here’s a remastered version of New State of Mind, that I originally did in 2010.

To Be Over

Dear friends, this is a very special video for me because I’m presenting the bass I have built in the memory of Chris Squire. The #bassforChris project is my first attempt to construct a bass and it took me about one year. Finally it’s ready.

Another important part of the cover is the use of the 8-string bass on the intro and first two verses of the song. Although there isn’t any report of Chris using an 8-string in this song, while studying the bassline, I concluded that it was indeed the Rickenbacker 4008 that was used, with a wah-wah effect pedal. I underline that this statement is just from my listening, but it fits in the chronology, as the first prototypes were issued in 1973, according to the Rickenbacker Electric Bass Book (Paul D. Boyer/Hal Leonard) and Chris was given one of the first copies.

Our Song (HD Remaster)

While I’ve been preparing my newest clip, here’s one of my early covers of “Our Song” that I made originally in 2009. This HD remaster also includes a final mix with more bass.

This song was played originally by Chris with his Gibson Thunderbird.

Parallels (HD Remaster)

Here’s an “oldie” – my second YouTube bass cover, recorded in 2008. I tried to make a remaster out of it, although I don’t have the separate bass track anymore. At least YouTube encoding now is much better. The audio and video quality should have improved a bit overall!
