Ah, YYZ. Geddy Lee’s bass line on this iconic tune has to be one of the most popular challenges and play-along’s out there.
No Treble reader Troy Hughes sends us this video of him pulling off the feat, with this note:
“I’ve been a huge Rush fan for just about as long as I’ve been playing bass. Gene Simmons got me started playing bass but Geddy Lee kept me playing… I’m submitting this , not because I think it’s my best work or because it’s my favorite song but because it has the most views of all my videos so far. I’m self-taught and learned to play by ear, playing along with my favorite records. I’m playing a Geddy Lee model Jazz bass through a little Fender SP-10 guitar practice amp.”
Nice work, Troy. Love the bass, love the tone and love the background behind you!
