Our MySpace friend and bassist Jackie Clark is showing his bass and mixing skills once again, in Indaba Music’s latest remix contest for The “Shifty” Soundtrack.
As Jackie explains: “What you’re hearing is my attempt to play all the parts with Logic 8 (piano, acoustic guitar and percussion) along with my favorite orchestra sample software (Vienna Symphonic Library) and my battle-tested Lakland fretless 5 string bass! I know there are so many ways to remix this song but I was so impressed with the original that I didn’t want to stray too far from the melody and vibe of what I heard. I just tried to add bits and pieces here and there. I really wanted to keep the original guitar part but for some strange reason, it didn’t line up at 153 BPM. The guitar part I did is actually a combination of 4 different tracks. I tried to learn the original part as best I could then picked out certain patterns for each track to build the guitar part you hear. Hope I didn’t clutter it up too bad and I hope you enjoy listening to a bassist trying to do it all himself! :-) ”
