50 drum vids down 50 bass vids to go

Well, 53 drum tracks for Live Ramones Karaoke but……
WHEW! That sure was an effort
About half of this set list or more was recorded by memory with only a click track
After that, I decided it would take too long to memorize the rest of them so I decided it was easier to play along with recorded tracks
My biggest issue is that most of the live stuff is too fast or too slow for my tastes so I adjusted the tempo of each song to the nearest BPM block setting
I prefer even numbers and tend to go by tens
I rarely even use a bpm ending in “5”, much less any number other than “0”
That might turn out to be a liability later on down the line but I am sure it will show itself to me eventually if it is a problem
After all, I can make mistakes in this series of recordings because I fully intend to re-record in a more professional setting, once I gain enough repetition with this set list and the money to finance a pro studio
Right now, I feel that the bass parts are going to be more difficult than the drum parts, only because I rarely play the bass
Don’t be fooled, it takes a lot of stamina to play the bass
More tan the guitar in my opinion
Here’s a list of the songs have recorded for the new set
I intend to play as soon as possible with the new material but I also have the luxury of being able to put bass parts down in a more relaxed atmosphere
The bass may be more physically taxing but I am more likely to distracted or lose focus when recording drum tracks
Plus, the bass parts will go over the existing drum parts so there’s that as a guide as well
OK!
Let’s hope this goes quickly so that I can play the new material ASAP!
