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

Interview at Yes Music Podcast 5th anniversary

Last week I had the honour of featuring in one of Kevin Mulryne’s interviews celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Yes Music Podcast. Some topics discussed were my interest in Bulgarian Folklore Music, start of my online bass lessons project and, of course, Yes Music and Chris Squire.

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!

Online Lessons – 1st announcement

Dear friends. After the “Sort-of-tutorial” videos that I published recently, I have been receiving requests to give classes online. I do have experience to teach in music schools and I am currently gathering the necessary gear and information to be able to teach bass lessons by Skype.

I intend to start with this project by September. Hopefully it will provide a chance for me to share my experience as a bass player in general terms and, in particular, what I have been learning through almost 30 years of studying and playing the work of Chris Squire.

I would love to hear your feedback about this, whether you are interesting in learning bass or if you had experiences with online lessons either as a student or teacher, so please post your comments or email me.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Thank you!

Miguel

Thank You Chris!

Machine Messiah (HD Remaster)

Around six years ago I was experimenting with video effects and recorded this cover of Machine Messiah. Since then, YouTube’s audio and video compression capabilities improved a lot so I figured that this one could be sort of remastered both sonic and visually. As I had the green screen behind me, and although the lighting put a big shadow on it, I decided to make some different video effects, not as flashy as the first version. Most of all, I hope now the sound is better and you enjoy this cover of one of my favourite Yes compositions and basslines!
