Bass tracks

I played bass tracks today and I'm very pleased with the takes. Jeff, our producer, had great input and vision to help out with the parts. My favorite track performance is "Still In Love With You", which is also my favorite song of the three. I used the Rickenbacker on it and "Be Still". The sound is deep and smooth. On "Lillian" I had the opportunity and pleasure of using Bryan Adams' 1962 Fender Precision Bass. Since he owns the studio it was here to use at our disposal. What a treat! The thing sounds great and is super playable. There is only a small amount of paint remaining on the bass. It looks like it has been on the road for most of its life. The tone is perfect for the openness of this song. Can't wait to hear the guitars next. Jed and I laid down a tight, solid, rhythmic foundation to build the songs upon. Having fun and living the dream....
