People seemed to like my instrument

As I wrote in the Wikiloops forum already, some people seemed to really like my bass. Kimbo (a guitar player from Cornwall whom you see in our 2018 Reggae video) said that it’s lovely to play. And here are Nilton:

and Fivestringer rocking on my fretless Fourstringer:

More pictures and even videos will be published by Richard on Wikiloops soon, so let’s wait a bit.

Oh, and my brother Willi got his fretless bass (with 5 strings) also by now, and he seems to be really happy with it. Cannot wait to hear something from him…

As always, thanks for reading.

Back from a wonderful 2018 Wikiloops members meeting

I’m just back from the meeting mentioned in this picture, and wow, what a ride it was! Started a thread about it over at wikiloops.com, and here are the two photos I’ve posted there so far:

Pit, emptying his cornu copiae

More images and videos will follow on the Wikiloops forum in case you’re interested.

For here and now, all I can say is that it was awesome. Really nice and talented people in those ‘loops, and it’s an experience everyone should have. Thanks to everyone who was involved in this, and/or who participated, you were all great! Here’s hoping to see all of you again next year.

Thanks, and cheers,
Wolfgang

A remark I’ve made

Here’s a reaction to a remark I’ve made this morning:

There. I’ve said it:

“…my personal hit of this 2018 summer”

Raymond (STJray) from Canada was the original composer and creator of what we call the “template” (the basic track) of this personal summer hit of mine, and the version I like most until now is probably the one with Peter’s saxophone, and of course with Shi’s lyrics and vocals:

I had embedded this here before, but since it’s my summer hit… 😉

Thanks for listening again!

With the waves (Always)

I’ve had a track on my Wikiloops watchlist since weeks, again from Shi and Ray. I absolutely love this one, so I took my time before finally taking out my bass today. And together with my addition, it sounds like this:

Thanks to Richard, founder of Wikiloops who has cut all these together, and thanks also to all participants. It was great to be a part of all of this fun jamming, and I hope to see some of you soon in real life.
