A Day In The Life

Learning McCartney's bass lines

A Day In The Life

Postby (rickinroma) » Sun Aug 29, 2010 1:24 pm

Back to the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band atmosphere

The original basslines are doubled employing my 2006 Rickenbacker 4001C64S through a 1966 Super Foundation Bass amplifier.
Paul's bass is on the centre/left while mine is on the centre/right side of the stereo

Bravo! Wonderful, full tone you're getting there Signor Fai! If you don't mind my asking, what do you use to record your amplifier? Microphone? Preamp? Etc...

Incomprable, just incomprable. Fine work on this Beatles video and the others you have most recently posted.

This item, placed in front of my amp speaker and plugged into the PC....no compressor, no preamp, sansamp or multiamp or whatever...I don't think it costs more than a couple of USD :lol:
