Have checked over and posted ‘Forget Me Nots’ by Patrice Rushen. Super cheesy but great bass line! Play it and see. As ever, if anyone has got any comments, amendments or suggestions please let me know.
Had an excellent rehearsal today with the Powerhouse Orchestra (formerly CHCO). We’re being the backing orchestra for a Beatles tribute band and we’re recreating all of the Sgt. Peppers album! So I got the chance so sit in with the string section with the double bass and get the bow out. Great fun and really looking forward to that gig. Hopefully there will be more in the future!
The Pimptones were played on the Craig Charles Funk & Soul show last night! It’s on ‘listen again’ if you want to check it out (about 50mins or so into the show). Click on the link above to get there.
Also managed to finish two great transcriptions – ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ by Carleen Anderson and ‘Forget Me Nots’ by Patrice Rushen (awesome awesome Freddie Washington slap line) which I’ll put up
in the next few days so check them out! 🙂
Well, an excellent night was had by all I think. Great crowd, lots of friendly faces, the band played well and everyone was smiling. All good! Looking forward to more gigs like that in the future! 🙂 I was stoked with some of the new bass lines I’ve been working on too – the practise *seems* to be paying off slowly but surely! We had a full page spread in the Journal newspaper too!
Had a good Sharks took the rest rehearsal this morning – gig in the pipeline!
Here’s the link to the online review by the Journal which is pretty sweet: Journal Review
Easter is upon us – two weeks of freedom! 🙂
Few new tunes and transcriptions added. Enjoy.
