Random Bass Isolation

For a zillion years I played a cover of this song with the Smokin’ Clams. I’d never really listened to the song, I just made up a bassline that fit what the guys played in rehearsals. My version fit, sorta, but it wasn’t right by any means. A few years ago I decided to try to learn the “right” way to play it and found that the bassline was actually quite a bit more intricateĀ than I’d thought. Sadly I forget the original bassist’s name at the moment, but I believe he was a studio session player who came up with the bass part on the fly as they recorded Van Morrison’s album…

Anyway, here’s me fumbling through “Brown Eyed Girl.” (And I did fumble quite a bit – my headphones kept randomly cutting out on me…)
