I’ve had a great run writing songs starting with the bass. My bass playing is improving for sure, but almost too much. In this song, I kinda went overboard. The bass is so busy, I left no room for other instruments.
This is where a synth shines – to add simple and light “washes”. The Solina sound I used has a melancholy sound to it, so I added some piano parts.
The previous song had some strange modulation to another key, but the song gets better toward the end. I feel that this and the last song are “disposable”, but time will tell. In any case, every song is a fun learning adventure, and well worth the effort and time spent.
