Tales of Yore, 2 adds

I played on that awesome track from Rick aka ‘acousticeg’ and also included it into my latest album (see the blog post before/below this one). And since then I received two more adds already, since the piece was still left wide open by us. So here they are, in case you’re interested:

Thank, or rather merci to our friends, these are so nice 🙂 And thanks to you for your interest, and for reading and listening.

Rise and Shine

A really wonderful & jazzy funky theme from Marc, jhonrobert, and Alex – so I added a few low notes and tried to support that groove:

Still some space for soli in there, and the list of musicians until now is:

Thanks to my friends for the fun I had, and thanks to you for listening.

He’s Left The Clan

Short but irresistibly sweet piece by YuuLi, a relatively new member in Wikiloops whose first upload was a 9/8, and whose singing reminded me of other great artists like Joni Mitchell – so I wanted to play with that incredibly talented young woman since she joined us. And today I could finally try a few low notes on one of her tracks (originally an a capella of hers, no less!):

And that nice nylon guitar is also played by a relatively new member, also from France, who calls himself ‘Al-Fadista’. So here’s the list of musicians so far:

Thanks to my friends for all the fun, and thanks to you for reading, and for listening.

Tales of Yore

So after 3 internet outages during the last week, and one first rehearsal of the orchestra where I’m helping out for an injured bass player we now seem to have a stable connection again (knock on wood!), and I could log in to Wikiloops again, and download some songs to play on.

Haven’t done much with Rick aka ‘acousticeg’ since quite some time – if I remember correctly since my first album in the beginning of 2018¹. So I was glad to find an awesome new template of his, and couldn’t resist to adding some low end to it:

List of musicians so far – just him and melike here:

I’ve tried to keep his nice triplet feel in this one, and to also support his flagiolet tones with some from my fretless bass. Hope you like it as much as I did while playing on it.

As always, thanks for reading, and for listening. And thanks also to Rick for the fun I had.

¹Wrong – I did “Beneath the Waves” as another collaboration with him in November, even as a video collab. So this is our third one together after the intial “The way that she moves” with Shi from March 2018 🙂

The Princess is still dancing

As I also wrote on the ‘loops, I wasn’t entirely happy with my previous upload and remix of Erwan’s sweet little music box theme – so I decided to spend a bit more time with it. So here it is again, with a different take on my bass:

Musicians on this one:

As always, thanks for reading, and for listening.

Two tracks, and an internet outage

Yesterday I uploaded two tracks to Wikiloops. The first one was something which wasn’t really finished, in fact it was just me noodling around with my bass playing over a track of – my bass. Nothing special, just what came to mind. But someone asked, so I decided to upload it:

And the second one was an add over three tracks from Erwan on musical box, keys (with some artificial voice), and cello:

Then this morning about half past 11am, I was just answering a nice email I had gotten a bit earlier, our internet went out. And it stayed off for most of the day, all in all for some 9 hours or so.

So not much activity in that direction today, just sent a short thank you answer email, and also said thanks to 8 thumbs on my first and 9 on my second tracks so far, and that was mostly it.

And as always, thanks for reading, and for listening.

That’s Love

I loved Don’s track even with him alone, but together with our relatively new member “ajax” and her sax it became irresistible – so I added a bit of a low end to it:

List of musicians, until now:

As always, thanks for listening. And thanks to my friends at the ‘loops for all the fun 🙂

Edit: Oh, and look Ma – we’re on the radio!

See also on the right, we have several channels on the ‘loops, one of which always plays the newest stuff…

Find You

I had an old track of Oliv, Shi, and Wade in my watchlist in Wikiloops since quite a while. And I was busy doing other things, but yesterday and today I could play around with that track a bit. And after trying a few very different things I decided that once more it was best to keep it simple, and to let my bass just support these wonderful musicians a bit. So here is the result:

The list of musicians (so far, it was downloaded already):

So thanks to my friends and fellow musicians in the ‘loops, and thanks to you for listening.
