Bee Gees: Maurice Gibbs’s Isolated Bass on “You Should Be Dancing”

I absolutely love the way bass sounds with a pick. Throw on your bell bottoms and platforms as we take it back to 1976.

In today’s clip, we hear the isolated bass track for the Bee Gee’s #1 classic, “You Should Be Dancing”. The tone coming from that P Bass is glorious. The song is part of the famed “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack. Maurice Gibbs’s playing is rock solid on this tune. A great lesson on pocket bass playing!
