This soulful jazzy, pop number comes courtesy of Tarjei Bjerke Dalene from Birkeland in Norway. It features LiRY. Tarjei writes, produces, mixes and masters his music himself and collaborates with musicians from around the world. He doesn’t sell his music and produces to improve his all round skills. It’s a brilliant way to do it: actually finish a song that started as an idea using other musicians and all your own production skills.
He had some great ideas for what he wanted from the bass on ‘Goodbye’ so I incorporated these whilst adding my own touches here and there. I used my 1978 Fender Precision.
When I’m recording online, I’m the only one in the room so the instructions I receive are very important. These instructions range from very minimal to the provision of a chart (with chords or notes) or even written notes or sung recordings of a rough bass line. All approaches work.
