the awakening acoustic bass solo

October 27, 2010

My attempt at “The Awakening” by the Reddings and later, Les Claypool. It’s incomplete as I’m still working on the last part of the song. Some parts are From the Reddings version, some from the Claypool version, and some are bits that I made up to fit. Played on a Fender Kingman Acoustic Bass, which sounds far better than my laptop mic would lead you to believe, and using a plectrum as that’s just how I roll! Be nice!

    @monro123456789 It’s just my crappy laptop mic that doesn’t pick up very well, cheers for the comment. Check out my other vid for the complete song!
