Collaborative music site Indaba Music is running a contest to remix John Legend’s “If You’re Out There”, and bassist Jackie Clark shared his submission with us.
Jackie plays his Lakland 5-string fretless bass and just about everything else on the recording.
As Jackie shares, “This is my version of an already incredible song! I took the vocals and lead guitar stems, listened to John’s soloed vocal for nearly two hours and was inspired to record my own lil arrangement using Logic Pro 8 sounds (for the Steinway Piano), and Vienna Symphonic Library Orchestra sounds for all the rest of the tracks and my trusty ol’ Lakland fretless 5 string bass on the bottom. I’m not much of a mix engineer yet but, I hope this track is acceptable to those who take time to listen. I’m a BASSIST first!”
Hey, bassist first is a-okay with us.
