I decided to try something new with the bass line by incorporating my talkbox with it. I have an acoustic/electric bass but the pickup is pretty weak. I wasn’t sure if it was going to work but it actually ended up working fantastic. I’ll definitely be doing that more in the future. That’s what that tube looking thing is wrapped around my neck you see me making out with. It’s not fun and it makes you slobber a lot, but it’s worth it for the sound!
I’m playing all the instruments you see and they are being live recorded at the time you see me playing them. There’s no trickery going on here. The one section of piano I played in this song took me almost 4 hours to get right! I actually tried for 3 hours and got really angry one night so just went to bed. When I came back at it the next door I got it on the third try. I don’t really rehearse anything ahead of time I kinda just wing it and see how it all mashes together.
Oh, and be sure to watch til the end. I do something I’ve never seen anyone ever do on the piano or to end a song in my entire lifetime. I’m hoping I’m the first!
