Dear friends, I decided to have a try to cover one of the most incredible songs by Yes, and also one of the most beautiful basslines created by Chris Squire. I must say that this sole bassline can be a matter of lengthy study. From the chaotic intro to the most subtle note choices andContinue reading “Close to the Edge (i – The Solid Time of Change, ii – Total Mass Retain)”

FAQ #2 – How do I get my bass sound
This is probably the most asked question, so I will try to resume my setup. Bass: Usually it’s my Rickenbacker 4001 CS. It’s a Chris Squire signature limited edition of 1000 and mine is #605. 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”

November is the Fragile month! This was my first attempt to transcribe and play Heart of the Sunrise back in 2003. Apart from the Rickenbacker 4001CS connected to the Sansamp DI, I used a Boss TR-2 Tremolo pedal. Download the pdf transcription here!
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”
The Gates of Delirium (ii)
Here I play the second section of The Gates of Delirium, also known as “the battle” suite. Most appropriate, I would say… I managed to play it in two nights of recording, having to stop after on the first night I had run out of fingers… they still hurt :)) I must say also thatContinue reading “The Gates of Delirium (ii)”
Pilence sings on “Voxbulgarica”
My latest clip appears on Voxbulgarica – this site, beautifully re-designed, is a must-see for those interested in Bulgarian Music, including sheet music and recordings on their catalog, covering many styles of Bulgarian Music. I am delighted with the mention of my work on such a prestigious website. Thank you very much, Voxbulgarica – Много благодаря!
Le Mystére des Voix Bulgares – Пиленце пее (Pilence Pee) [arr. Miguel Falcão’s “BEBE”]
Pilence Pee (Пиленце пее) is my latest musical adventure. This song features a traditional Bulgarian choir arrangement, adapted by me to an ensemble of bass instruments. Sometimes an idea is just an idea… the idea of making this arrangement has been haunting me for the last 8 months and for 8 whole months I workedContinue reading “Le Mystére des Voix Bulgares – Пиленце пее (Pilence Pee) [arr. Miguel Falcão’s “BEBE”]”
While I am preparing myself for what’s next to come, I decided to treat myself with a new effect pedal, which resembles Chris’ legendary fuzz tone of the Gibson Maestro Brassmaster – the Malekko b:assmaster (that’s no typo;). I was so eager to jam along with it that I made this short and quick videoContinue reading “Amazing Grace”
