Sample Track – Groovy Buddha, Temporal Flux
Back in the late 90s, I was involved in a local all-instrumental Jazz/Funk/Rock fusion act named Groovy Buddha. With a home base of Austin, TX, we had a slew of venues available where we could share our work. We also managed to pull together a decent CD named “Booty Groova”, before the various band members decided to move on to other interests (e.g. our drummer moved out to California to attend the Musician’s Institute). By the way, the photo to the left is an old band picture. Members included me on bass, Tony Ginko on keys (former keyboardist for local funk act Dysfukshun Junkshun), Clint Short on drums (has played with too many acts to list), and Bart Landry (my brother and well-known Austin DJ/Producer Exstus) on guitar.
I figured, hey, you saw who I am and what my gear looks like. But you haven’t actually heard me play, so I’m sharing just for fun. Let me know your thoughts about the song, and as always, please share your own work in the forum for all to enjoy! If I really dig your jams, I’ll consider also posting to the blog.
I had to go through all the songs we published to find the best version of a tune I liked that included a good bassline on fretless, as I mixed and matched basses according to what best fit with the tune. This entire song was performed on my “Green Monster” 6-string fretless bass guitar.
Please comment below if you like the track. I’ll be happy to post others if you want to hear more.http://fretlessbassguitarsite.com/2011/02/sample-track-groovy-buddha-temporal-flux/http://fretlessbassguitarsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/GroovyBuddhaCircle.jpghttp://fretlessbassguitarsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/GroovyBuddhaCircle-150x150.jpgAudioaudio,austin,fretless,funk,groovy buddha,jazz,music,rock,temporal flux
