Chris Squire: “Roundabout” Isolated Bass (Isolated Bass Week)

Today we’re kicking off a week-long celebration of bass with a number of isolated bass tracks, starting with the bass work of Chris Squire on the classic Yes hit “Roundabout”.

“Roundabout” is the opening track for the 1971 album Fragile, and was Yes’ 2nd all-time highest charting tune in the U.S.

Thanks to Steve Lawson, who shared this. If you have a favorite isolated bass track, send it our way.
