A phone call can sometimes trigger a song. Happened to me some time ago and before I knew I was writing and recording the song.
“Never let the truth stand in the way of a good story” they say, so rest assured: this is not autobiographical and I don’t mean anything bad to or for the person that called me. In fact I was happy with that phone call!
About the recording
I’ve used my new studio-equipment for this and some ‘old’ vintage stuff I have. Yesterday I’ve recorded and mixed the song and during the recording session I’ve filmed large parts of it. Resulting in this video (youtube).
The video is in black and white and in it you see me using my new Harley Benton bass guitar for the first time on a recording. I’ve used it on a few other songs also. Must say I love this bass. It’s plays extremely well and because of it’s five way selector you can create many different sounds suitable for almost any style. Real all round bass guitar!
