Description
A new song..
A few weeks ago I bought a new bass.. I used to play a lot of bass in the past but hadn't had one in recent years, always did them on a midikeyboard. It feels good, been playing a lot in the last few weeks.. :-)
Played here with the E string dropped to D
Bing helped me out on guitar and had some good advice here and there ;-)
Lyrics are very old..
Hope you like it

Lyrics
THINGS ON MY MIND

Time is slowly passing by
There's a change in the look in your eye
Life is going 'round and 'round
Now you touch the sky, then you hit the ground

We are all dreaming our little dreams
At least, that is what is seems
Or is it one big dream that we share
That sometimes turns out to be a nightmare

There's nothing you can do
It all just happens to you

We should all be humble in our heart
But that would only be a start
Minds are playing a game
Though hearts know it is a shame

KC ('76 - 2011)

This is real nice. The harmonies are rich ... great mix. everything well placed. Guitar is sweet. Nothing like a real bass ... more feeling and warmth to it. Good song. Life does go round and round...

I love the bridge. So silky smooth. The harmonies are like a velvet blanket. Really sweet. The live bass is nice, especially the dropped D, nice touch, adds that deep funk. Such a slow and slithering groove. One of your best!

It's a shortscale Fleabass, that I bought from a friend for a very good price, almost as new :-)

Yes, I always like the lows in a song , and even a bass quite upfront.
Must be a legacy of British Canterbury band from the 70-s like Soft Machine and Caravan. :-)

There's a challenge in playing slow songs
Maybe this one is a bit too slow

Like the way the bass slides around, sounds alive. Nice progression, and the electric piano and clean channel guitar bring it alive in a classic way.

sliding
is a thing you can't do on a midi keyboard .
You can bend the note with a wheel, but that's different
Nothing like the real thing!

Cees, check out the Scarbee Pre-Bass, it has the slide articulation.
I did this song with it, and used the slide articulation a lot:

Down low
Reading your introduction I thought you'd write a total bass showcase, but your playing stays tasteful and in service of the song. Very nice though. That bass has a good sound.
