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.

It was manufactured on the 30th January 1996. Other basses are: early 70’s Fiesta Red Fender Jazz Bass late 90’sContinue reading “FAQ #2 – How do I get my bass sound”

Tempus Fugit – BASS AUDIO with TRANSCRIPTION

I’ve been very busy for the past weeks working on my Music, also working with a few other live projects. On the top of that my regular job also requested more time, so I haven’t had the chance to upload something new. In exchange, I am uploading something old :). This is from 2002 (ifContinue reading “Tempus Fugit – BASS AUDIO with TRANSCRIPTION”

Caffeine – Slippery Ride

While I have been part of several local bands throughout the years, only this one – Caffeine – has released a video clip that actually aired on some tv stations. To put it simple, Caffeine was a rock act that had it’s major activity around the turn of the millenium and saw an EP andContinue reading “Caffeine – Slippery Ride”
