This practice, play along, is entirely for non-commercial purposes. It is not destined for release. I have recorded along with this track, in order to get feedback on my own Bass playing from other members at scottsbasslessons.com which is a tutorial web site.
The song was composed by the American Rock Band, "The Eagles" and first appeared on their 1979 Album, "The Long Run" back in 1979. Band members Timothy B. Schmit, Glenn Frey and Don Henley were the guys who wrote it. They first recorded it in March 1978. It was the first "Eagles" song to feature Schmit on Lead Vocals.
It made #'8 in the Billboard Top 100 in April 1980 and also reached #3 in the Adult Contemporary Chart.
The version I chose to play along with is that recorded by Canadian Smooth Jazz Vocalist and Pianist, Diana Krall, from her 2015 Album, "Wallflower". I just love the way she showcases a song.
For the technically minded, I played along on my 2006 Sadowsky Metro MS5 five string Bass. I played it in "Active" mode, using its on-board preamp. Bass and Treble controls were set around 50%. The Vintage Tone Control was at 100% to gibe the notes a little edge and avoid them becoming "muddy.". The Neck and Bridge PUs were equally selected and the onboard volume was set around 90%. I used no effects or other enhancements, just my own fingers.
It was recorded direct to my PC, via a Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 USB Audio Interface. The soundtrack was captured on Ableton Live 9 Lite version 9.2 (64 bit) software.
The video footage was contemporaneously recorded, via my old Panasonic Video Camera, plugged into my PC via a "Firewire" cable, functioning as a webcam. The footage was recorded in Corel Pinnacle Studio 18.5.1 video editing software. The sound and video tracks were synchronised and exported as a MPEG-4 Format.
I trust you will enjoy my effort ;o)
