Jason Everett: Indian Vocal Melody on 7-String Fretless Bass

Inspiration can come from anywhere, and combining your inspiration with your passion creates something special. Jason Everett sent in this video of himself playing along with the song “Jog” on his 7-string fretless bass.

“I have loved Indian music for nearly 30 years and this vocal solo by Ujwal Nagar is a great example of why,” he states. “It is very intricate yet passionate…fast yet relaxed…improvised but thoughtful. As Jaco demonstrated, the fretless bass has the ability to mimic the human voice and even animal sounds. Trying to make my bass sound like an Indian vocalist was extremely challenging, and I have much work yet to do.”
