So I know what you’re thinking… “more music stuff”? Yep. I know you’re also thinking… “more bass stuff”? Yep again! It’s been a super needed outlet for me lately. I wouldn’t be surprised to even more stuff soon.
Now I know bass heavy short snippets of prog/funk music may not be everyone’s thing but my favorite drummer Chris and I are having SO MUCH fun making these. In fact we recorded this after my first week back at school with students. While I’m really happy to be back teaching in person no teacher will pretend that this is a normal year. It was nice to be able to step away from the school day, make some music with a friend, and maybe perhaps vent a little bit of frustration by hitting (I guess they call it slapping) my bass.
This little piece of music is written in a mode. That’s just a fancy way of saying it has a pretty interesting (maybe considered “not normal”) sound to it. It’s fast and kind of sporadic. My directions to Chris for recording this was “do a lot of stuff for 8 measures, then do less stuff for 8, and then even less for 8”. Very helpful, I know! The great thing about playing with someone for a long time is even with bad directions like that they get it.
Hope you enjoy Temple Garden!
