Bass GROOVE w/ BIAB 70's TV theme style - Ernie Ball Bongo 6 Demo song. 70's style, TV Theme Groove.

Hey PGM friends!

As a bassist natively, my bass collection is far greater than than my guitar collection. I did get this EB Bongo 6 a few months back but struggle with the tighter string spacing, though enjoy the light weight. I made a demo for a sale ad.

This is a GREAT example (in my opinion) of using BIAB with your own tracks to write and create some killer music. Wishing ya'll a FANTASTIC weekend! RG

This groove breaks down like this

RG Tracks
- Drums
- Bass
- Vintage Analog Strings

BIAB Real Tracks
Acoustic Piano
Electric Piano
Clav 1
Clav 2
Wah Guitar

Stunning, as always, RG.

Great to be able to hear (and watch!) you play bass.

Mesmerizing. Incredible mix.

Sounds great (of course).

First time I've seen a 6-string bass - let alone seen one played. You handle it masterfully. Nice track.

That's a big bass...Imagine going from that to a Fender Bass VI?
Excellent funking on a theme.
The arrangement was cool as were the instruments in it - though the string synth seemed a little out of place.
Cool.

Brother Floyd! Always great to see your post sir! Thank you for the nice words!
Yeah, not much bass action here on PG forums... but it would be nice to see! It might the most supported instrument to progress with using BIAB! cool

Have a great Sunday!

Thank you Brian! Appreciate the listen!

1975 Anthony Jackson Bassist extraordinaire commissioned the first 6 string BEADGC Bass to tour with Roberta Flack.
His work with Lee Ritenour is an inspiration (Lee also!) Still plays them today!

Its often seen in a Jazz Fusion context where the bass is used as a solo instrument as well as a support. Certainly takes getting used to as a player. Alot of string space and material to manage and keep the sound clean!

Cool.


Cheers, thank Ray – appreciate the listen. Yeah, though It’s a standard 34” 6 string. The two in the back, the Yamaha John Patitucci JP2 models, now those boys are big! 12 lbs each.

Analog strings out of place? Goodness not around here! laugh That is the one thing holding it all in place! The sound of an era, the vintage analog 70s strings put the extra sugar in the mix!

Think classic Tavares - grin cool

Greg, shoot! That’s a heap of praise! Bass playing doesn't inspire many! There is no way you have stopped improving, I have heard those prolific BIAB tracks you churn out and they are both excellent and impressive! Appreciate the good words, cool RG

That's a killer track, all right.

My own bass playing doesn't venture much further than root-and-fifth, so it was nice to see how it really is done. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

As nothing but a bluegrass upright thumper for decades I have just enough
experience to appreciate that amazing playing. Not that in my wildest dreams
I could do it but, man, is it ever fun to listen to and watch.

Thanks for sharing,

A little disco style embellishment ! As an Austinite David, I have witnessed plenty of players who hold an enviable R/5 groove! Plus, Root/5 = the money zone! crazy

J&B, thank you! That is how I feel about Bluegrass! But love a great hillbilly swing!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
