Hi Guys, :-)

I uploaded a new video from last Friday doing an open mike and trying to keep my chops up. :-)

Original tune called 'Ho' Down' inspired by yet another television commercial. Still working it and have a ways to go yet but if I do say so myself it shows a lot of potential. :-)

Hope you like it. :-)

Best Regards,

Kimberly :-)

PS. I'm still recovering from my thumb injury and am still only accepting limited bookings and even then only enough to make my bills. On a positive 'note' ;) I'm healing. :-)

Hi Guys! :-)

I appreciate the comments and feedback, thank you very much! :-)

Georgie, I'm using an Boss RC-50 loop station with two loops happening. I'm sure any looper on the market could duplicate this part of the tune. :-)

The first line is made using the T-Wah Up setting on a Boss ME-50B with the parameters running 'flat', or rather straight up 12 o'clock. The second line is 'straight bass' and then I switch back to the ME-50B for the 'melody' section. The synth 'solo' is using a Roland GR-20 synth set up for bass with a GK3-B p/u mounted on my instrument. I don't remember which voicing I'm using on the synth, though I'm certain it's a pre-set without any 'tweaks'. :-)

I'm also running with no backline and through a small PA which gives me a higher frequency response than a bass amp, though in this instance the lows were lacking. I think it really does help 'my sound' though getting those higher frequencies. :-)

As an aside I 'threw' the synth solo in as an experiment and kinda like the way it worked out so it's likely going to become a 'regular' part of the tune. :-)

I'll also probably throw in a B section, but for now it's a pretty typical 'Kimberlyesque style' loop. :-)

Glad you guys liked it and thank you again for the feedback! :-)

Best Regards,

Kimberly :-)
