Big Bottom - An interpretation by Daveypoo, The Mobile Music

edited June 14 in Creations

Was inspired to do a cover for the first time in ages. I'm interested to know what you all think.

I'm looking at you, @LinearLineman and @McD

  • Excellent, tho I never heard the original.... which was sung in Italian, I believe. Very fun synth break, too. You might have done it all... am I right?

  • Nice vocal performance

  • Awsome!
    It would've been cool to see the performance during recording in true 'Dan Baker' style ;)

  • @LinearLineman If you aren't familiar with the original, you're truly missing out on a momentous piece of music history:

    You need to go watch This Is Spinal Tap as soon as humanly possible. And yes, I did it all. All the instruments were performed, not programmed, with the exception of Soft Drummer playing the drums. I tried to make this as live as possible, with as few edits as I could while still keeping it listenable.

    @audiobussy Thanks - the vocals are always the hardest aren't they? It's the thing I struggle with most for sure.

    Thanks, @Samu - I did consider making a video for this, but I just don't have the time. The production of this one tune took me nearly a month!

    Thanks for listening, boys. It was a lot of fun doing this one, especially getting back to playing everything again. I need to do that more...

  • Ah, now it all makes sense. The drums were very real sounding. Great job!

    Yeah, Soft Drummer is incredible. I don't have the physical space to set up a drum kit and I wanted to get this done - I am also the least confident in my drumming skills, so I decided to just let Luis Martinez do what he does best.

    Thank you, sir. Glad you enjoyed it.

  • Soft Drummer! I thought Rock Drum Machine!

  • Fun,good vibes!!
    We hear you had good time doing this!
    👍👍

  • That was fun to listen to! > @Samu said:

    Even better have the “drummer” in the video explode in the end!

    And leave only the green stain on the seat...

    @LinearLineman Of the 3 Lumbeat apps I have (Funk, Reggae & Soft Drummers) I like the improvising algorithm of Soft the best. It sounds the most like the drummer in my head. Reggae drummer is just brilliant, and I have some ideas for employing that down the road. Funk is also excellent, but I'm not a fan of the included kits. I've used FD to drive DrumPerfect Pro and that has worked beautifully.

    @flo26 I actually had you in mind quite a bit while doing the guitars here. I'm never quite satisfied with the guitar tones I get in ToneStack, and I LOVE your tones so much, so I tried to spend some extra time really dialing in the guitars. I kept thinking "Is this as good as something Flo would get?" The lead tone with the Leslie tone was me trying to not do the same thing I do in EVERY tune - distorted blues riffs. I took a tip from Eric Krasno, the guitarist from Soulive, and aped his tone a bit.

  • I thought it was going to be this:

    Unfortunately I don't have the right haircut to sing this one.... and I have no idea how much the fish is, honestly.

  • Super-fun, Davey! It’s been too long since I watched This is Spinal Tap (“No, it’s supposed to say Spinal Tap, THEN Puppet Show!”).
    Love the synth breakdown and that fantastic Leslie tone! You’ve also offered a compelling sales demo for Soft Drummer, I may have to make that my next app purchase!

  • Brilliant @Daveypoo ! Excellent playing and really nice vocals too. Yep Soft Drummer sounding pretty ace too! :smile:
    Gotta love Spinal Tap!

  • Thanks, @aquasloth - I'm glad you enjoyed it. The synth solo was inspired by Billy Preston's Struttin.

    @AlterEgo_UK Thanks for the listen, Colin! Been mulling this one over for awhile and finally had the gumption to get it done.

  • Ever since seeing that movie, I’ve been afraid of choking on someone else’s vomit.

    A valid concern, especially given your hard-core metal history...

  • Dave, you know I like this. I’m going to say that the part that I like least is the canned drums. I knew within milliseconds that they were not played or recorded by you. Something tells me you could lay down a solid beat

    Yep - probably could have but I've got nowhere to set up a kit or the gear to record it. I'm sure I could've sourced these but that would've most likely stopped this from happening (work, kids, life, etc.) so I made the concession and moved on with it.. I appreciate your faith in my drumming skills, though. Next time!
