'1989' a bass solo

This week I recorded a song that's been flowing from my fingertips for a couple of decades. It's a bass solo I first composed onto an Amiga computer sometime around 1989 or 1990.

My inspiration for the tune came from a dream I had early on in my bass playing days when I was about 16 and Cliff Burton, the late and great bass player from Metallica, gave me a lesson.

A funny thing about the dream is I've met a number of other bass players who've dreamed about Cliff. The arpeggios are in his style and he recorded some wicked bass solos.

Below is a pic of me with my first bass guitar in 1989.
