Here is an update and remaster of my 2008 cover of Roundabout, including new guitar overdubs and a some corrected notes on the secondary bassline, at the “Drifting Cloud” middle section.

Chris played a Gibson Triumph bass, which is a short scale bass. The tone is quite different from the usual, more discrete andContinue reading “Turn Of The Century”
