“Now put my -what- on the string?”

August 15th, 2007

Though I’ve played guitar, and a few other strings, a number of years, I have to admit, this is an entirely new (to me) method of fretting!

(Alexander Vynograd‘s arrangement for an eight string guitar of Bach’s BWV639 [the 1713 chorale Ich ruf’ zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ, which was used as the theme for Tarkovsky‘s 1972 version of Lem‘s Solaris (pl.)].)

Inspired by this, I thought I’d try my hand at arranging the work for 6-string bass. For what it’s worth, you can hear it on Last.FM or here:

Für Elise

May 21st, 2006

Courtesy of Beethoven, the 6-string, a high-C, pinched harmonics, Cubase, the Zoom B2.1u, the Morley (though only as a volume pedal, for the crescendos and diminuendos), and several takes. Enjoy Für Elise on six-string bass.
