Hey hey guys!! Here's my first EVER Rush Bass cover!! Rush are one of my favorite bands ever. I was actually surprised that no one else has covered this track. It's a beautiful song. The entire album 'Signals' is one of my favorites. The different textures on the song give it such an intense atmosphere.
Now, I know hardcore Rush fans will probably dislike this video because 1; I am not using my Jazz Bass which Geddy Lee uses almost 90% of the time. 2; I am using both my fingers whereas Geddy would be using one finger and finally 3; that I am not singing, playing the bass and playing the synthesisers at the same time. Well, I'm sorry guys but I've got good reasons for all that I've stated above.....so please don't leave a dislike for any of those reasons haha ;)
The bassline in general is sort of simple, definitely not one of Geddy Lee's insane basslines but, having said that, the odd time signature of the song (5/4 if I'm correct), make it tough and challenging. It certainly helped me understand how different time signatures work and change within a song.
Anyway guys I hope you all enjoy the video and as always....leave your comments below!! Would love to hear your opinions!! :) Rock on!!!
