Huw Foster: Solo Bass Cover of Stevie Wonder’s “As”

Until today, I’ve never seen a video by bassist Huw Foster. Now I’ve seen a ton.

I enjoyed them all, but this one stood out. Huw plays an improvised intro and outro, with the tune starting around the 0:38 mark. He’s even incorporated a riff from the Live at Last version.

  1. The whole vid is excellent, but I especially like the variations in dynamics that Huw puts into his playing.

  2. Just beautiful…

  3. I would really like to know what compressor there is on the bass (if any) because it sounds excellent.

    • Hi Michael,
      My signal chain for all of my videos is as follows:
      Bass direct into Focusrite Saffire 6 USB interface
      Capture audio in Logic, apply a bit of compression (usually the standard Logic FET circuit) and other FX (in this case, reverb)
      And that’s more or less it! Thanks for the comment.

  4. This one is NICE! He knows what to play and what not to, and that’s a big quality for a bass player. I wish there was more bassists like this out there!

  5. Yesterday I discovered one of my videos was featured on No Treble, an online bass magazine. Thanks guys!
