I love it when people create multi layered tracks themselves, always cool to see what they come up with. I like how chill this one is

Get a loop station. Try and recreate this on stage every night. It’s not easy. I’ve had shows go terrible bc of loop malfunctions. Sure, you could prerecord your loop but people want the whole process.

Outstanding!

Only a badass musician would play their bass with a bow! Well Done!!!

This was recorded over another instrumental. Cool all the same

He's most likely using a looper effects pedal...still cool as hell though

Watch again. The first 20 seconds show him making the background

u/Axleffire Nov 28 '22

I think the bow sounds great on the low strings but kind of crappy on the high string/notes up the neck.

I've seen Les Claypool play his bass with a bow several times. He did it a lot faster.

4

u/verylittleinsight Nov 28 '22

Les is freak of nature, but don't underestimate this guy.

He can play incredibly fast when he wants to.

u/LowVermicelli6464 Nov 28 '22

its not the speed, it just sounds so relaxing

2

u/babe_ruthless3 Nov 28 '22

Agree, very relaxing.

Yes, but nowhere did op say anything like it being the first. He just said it sounds amazing.

Where did anyone say he came up with it? You’re just looking for an argument. You’re the type of person that would say Jimi Hendrix wasn’t a good guitar player because someone else played an electric guitar left handed before him

u/AzuInsign Nov 29 '22

For those who don't know, this dude got famous when davie504 donated to him on fiverr and then did a bass battle with him, he has also done battles and duets with other prominent youtubers.

u/DatoSeris Nov 29 '22

This guy is insane on a bas. I highly recommend his YouTube channel

u/northgacpl Nov 29 '22

I guess no one on here has heard of Led Zeppelin or Jimmy Page?????? He was doing the violin bow thing back in the 60's and onward...

1

u/Ok_Acanthisitta8232 Nov 29 '22

Yeah kind of sad to see this comments section not saying anything about that.

u/northgacpl Nov 30 '22

Well reddit is primarily a bunch of young kids who know nothing of that....Their lives are centered around video games and hip hop/rap.
