    "Afrodeeziak" - new slap bass demo...

    Moody slap bass demo from Patrick de Caumette at www.scarbee.com
    Funk-loving guitarist and composer Patrick de Caumette has just finsihed the moody slap bass demo: \"Afrodeeziak\" using his Scarbee J-Slap\'n Fingered for Halion. The bass is tight and cool with lot\'s of crispy details!
    He used the Roland GR33 to program the bass and rhodes and also played a Fender acoustic rhythm guitar.

    In this tune, Patrick also used Scarbee RSP73, Stylus from drums & percs, Culture for percs,
    Halion for nylon guitar, Westgate Woodwind Collection for flute and Absynth for pad & synth bass
    (in the B section)

    Hey Thomas
    silky, smooth, and in the pocket!
    Not to say you didn\'t give that Frenchie guy a great bass to work with (all your demos sound really nice) but to Monsieur DeC.... Great stuff! That\'s my favorite piece of yours yet. Nice work Jersey boy!

    Thanks Monsieur Christian from rainy Vancouver!

    Glad you enjoyed it.

    For this piece I took a Stylus groove in 4/4, changed the kit\'s pattern to a 3/4, changed the snare downbeats to upbeats (last 16th note of the beat)

    With the GR33, I recorded the bass track in one pass and edited the articulations afterward.
    I love the fact that you can use the mod. wheel to determine what string you play on. That feature really helps make the bass sound very realistic. [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

    Another GR33 pass for the nylon guitar and the RSP73 rhodes to get the foundation of the tune down.

    Then I used my 4 fingers piano technique to add the percs (Stylus & Culture) et voila :
    an afro funk in 3/4 (with a touch of Brazil in the bridge) [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
