This video is live, unedited, raw... and fundamentally you'll see me doing exactly what I love to do as a bass player with a great live band. It's an honour to get to play musicians this good on regular basis... This is what I do when I'm not devising new lessons for eBassGuitar.Com
About This Video
This video is live set featuring my band of nearly 20 years - Metropolis. This features 4 songs recorded in June 2019 at a venue just outside London and 2 bonus songs recorded in Brighton.
The songs are:
- Lovely Day (Bill Withers)
- Let's Stay Together (Al Green)
- Street Life (The Crusaders)
- Super Duper Love (Joss Stone)
- Get Lucky (Daft Punk)
- Kiss (Prince)
The band is a 9 piece band feature a male vocalist, two female singers, trumpet, sax, keyboards, guitar, bass & drums.
Big shout to my rhythm section partner in crime for well over a decade Toby Goodman on drums.
This simple 'bass cam' style footage is recorded on iPad on a mic stand so you can see clearly what my fingers are doing.
The audio is my in-ear monitor mix recorded directly from the sound desk. You are hearing exactly what I am hearing in my headphone live.
You'll also see me directing the band using the 'Talk Back Mic'. This is a microphone which is routed direct into the musician's in-ear monitors (or headphones) so instructions can be given. The audience do not hear this!
Here's the bass guitar equipment:
- Sire P7 Generation 2, 4 string bass (watch the full video review here)
- Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 Amp
- Mark Bass Traveller 102p
- ACS In-ear Monitors
