The Ancient

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.

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 ofContinue reading “To Be Over”

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!

Caffeine’s “Last Shot”

Today I found on YouTube the release of one of my previous bands (Caffeine) last album. As I remember it was recorded around 2005. I used my Fender Jazz Bass on all tracks. Here is one of the tracks and the others are also available on the same channel.

Rig Rundown – Yes’ Chris Squire & Steve Howe

PremierGuitar.com made a spectacular interview with Chris Squire, Chris’ technician Richard Davis and Steve Howe where they present all of they gear for the current Three-album tour. Possibly the most complete guided tour to Chris’ and Steve’s instruments, effects and amps. A rare chance to see our heroes talking about the instruments that make historyContinue reading “Rig Rundown – Yes’ Chris Squire & Steve Howe”
