Bass Guitar Remote Recording – Spank, Ron Louis Smith 2nd

Ron is from a family of musical royalty, his dad and uncle both original members of KC and The Sunshine Band.

Ron is a gifted producer from Miami who has a real knack for catchy pop and dance records. I’ve played a few tracks for him and his method can be unusual but effective. I once had a Skype session with him where he sang me a load of ideas for the bass which really steered me towards a direction I wouldn’t normally go.

I love it when that happens. Even with remote sessions, collaboration is key. Whether by email, phone or Skype it’s really important to get any ideas across clearly. I’ve had a few people sing their ideas and I love it! It really works.

This track is a remix of an old track written by his dad. So the brief was to recreate the bass line which I did using my 1978 Fender Precision.
