I recorded this track as a play-along practice piece, purely for critique by my fellow members on http://www.scottsbasslessons.com It is not intended for publication, or wider circulation. It is not for profit.

This song was composed and performed by one of my favourite British lady singers, Alison Moyet, who originally released it on her (1991) Album, “Hoodoo”.

I chose to play along with my own Bass line, on my (2007) Overwater “Perception” 5 string unlined Fretless Bass. It is still fitted with the original set of Overwater’s own brand flat wound stainless steel strings.

This particular Bass is ‘Active’ only via an onboard preamp. It has no ‘Passive’ mode. I set the onboard Tone Control at 50%. Bass, Mid-range and Treble were also set at 50%. I added a touch of Chorus to my Bass, via a MXR Bass Chorus Deluxe pedal. The only other sound effect is my fingers.

This was again a one shot take. I am pleased with the intonation, tone and quality of the sound. That was what I wanted to achieve.

I routed it via my Bergantino B|AMP, which I used as an inline preamp, direct through an XLR cable, to my Focusrite Clarett 4 Pre USB Audio Interface, which is connected to my Intel i7 powered, Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64 bit PC. The Audio track was recorded direct on Ableton Live 10 Lite recording software.

The Video was contemporaneously captured, via my Canon EOS M50 Camera. The finished recording was then downloaded from the camera’s memory card, onto my PC. Where it was posted direct to Corel Pinnacle Studio Video Software, version 21.5. The Audio track was subsequently added and synchronised with the video footage.

Enjoy ;o)
