Dmitry is from Russia and his dream bass sound is the sound of an old MusicMan StingRay, which is handy as I have a lovely pre Ernie Bass 1978 in the arsenal. I recorded 3 takes for this pop rock number, going from simple ideas to more fills and movement, using no compression or EQ. This gave Dmitry full control of the bass sound and what he wanted to do with it in the final mix. He had a rough bass guide he sent me but told me to add whatever I thought fit well. That’s one of the benefits of getting a professional bass player to record for you: they can translate your ideas into something a bass player would actually do.
My aim was to stick with the kick drum and develop the line, adding a few melodic fills towards the end of the song.
