Hey Bulldog

Learning McCartney's bass lines

Hey Bulldog

Postby (rickinroma) » Sun Aug 29, 2010 1:18 pm

One of the funniest track to play along with

The original basslines are doubled employing my 1997 Fireglo Rickenbacker 4001V63 through a 1966 Super Foundation Bass amplifier.
For this recording session Paul McCartney used the same bass amplifier.
Paul's bass is on the centre/right while mine is on the centre/left side of the stereo.

Killer! I have to ask you just how tall you are, Francesco; that bass looks small in your hands, man! :lol:
