Anywhere you go

I had played on another branch of Niklas’ and Oliv’s track already, so I took my bass from there to see if it would also fit on Anne’s wonderful song… here you go…

As always, thanks to my friends for all the fun, and for their wonderful music. And thanks to you for listening.

Love forever feat. Mark Z.

I added fishi’s sweet sax and also my upright to a wonderful Canadian/German/Welsh and with the sax also American love song:

As always, merci, danke and thanks to my friends from Wikiloops, and thanks to you for listening.

What a nice track from Martin, couldn’t resist to play around with it a bit…

Last and first portraits, and a radio show

The last portrait I took in 2020 was this one:

And while I’m writing this, I’m listening to our member-announced radio show. Have a listen:

Free (Always)

I don’t have words to describe this one. So I just played a little…

As always, thanks to my friends for all the fun (an unforgettable one this time). And thanks to you for listening.

Getdown in the lockdown

Cool & funky template from sami, and he asked for bass & drums. Well I’m no drummer, but I wanted to try another microphone position on my upright recording anyway, so I started with that – and ended up using both the double and the fretless bass. And drums are still missing, so that – like the last one – isn’t ready yet:

Thanks to sami for all the fun, and thanks to you for listening (or even more if you also join us and play or sing or both) 🙂

Edit: oh, and about that microphone position: here it’s pointing to the bridge, and until now I’ve had it pointing to the lower fingerboard instead. The instrument is/was also much closer to the mic here, about 5 inches (normally 10). But while that sounded better on someone’s instrument on Youtube, I think for my bass I’ll go back to the old position – it’s easier to setup and play *and* it sounds better on my instrument…
