My son Jamie plays Double Bass for the Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra in their Camerata Orchestra. He also dabbles a little bit on electric bass, acoustic guitar and drums.
This song came from a 3-note riff that included double stops (two notes played at the same time). It sounds so melodic and ideas were already spinning in my mind. So after Jamie taught me the riff, I started building a melody around it.
The bass was tracked first, directly into the Arturia AudioFuse 8Pre. The drum tracks were laid down next with 3 mics: Shure SM57 on snare, Audix D6 at the bass drum port and Audix ADX51 overhead. The trumpet was tracked last and recorded using the Shure SM57
All tracks were recorded and mixed through Ableton Live 10 Standard. The video was recorded on a GoPro HERO8 Black and the final video editing/mixing was done through Adobe Premier Rush. Enjoy!
