I’ve posted a link to a previous recording of this song before (on the old forum). I’ve been wanting to re-record this song for quite some time in 24-bit and under a more recent version of Cubase.
Finally, I’ve done it. The result is something I’m quite happy with.
The song, called Beachside, was originally written by a good friend of mine and rather amazing bass player Lee Hodge. The original recording that he made was done on a 4 track, cassette-based system, and contained a repeating drum line, bass, and acoustic guitar only.
I took that, added synths, the lead motif during the “chorus” and the guitar solo in 1991. Since then, I recorded 2 remakes, including this one. The bass line is 99% of the original with some slightly different phrasings in certain parts of the song - there’s no way I could have come up with a bassline like this on my own.
Thoughts, suggestions, comments, etc. are all welcome.
