A ‘real bass player’. A real bass player is the kind of a guy who’s just sitting there playing it, in front of the room, playing and practicing, and playing it. And that’s why he sounds so amazing. So I always make sure everybody knows their place, and I do everything that I can to try to keep everybody happy. So if they want to call me a bass player then that’s good, but at the same time I also like to try to be more like a keyboard guy because my skills in that field are very different to a bass player’s. I like to stay in the studio, I like to be in the studio all the time, I prefer recording stuff from the studio or from the road rather than from rehearsing. So I’m always trying to learn all those different things.
So how do you play these bass lines? How do you use your hands to play them?
Well, my fingers are pretty good, but in the early stages I’m thinking about playing with my right hand as well and then when I need to use my left hand I might switch to my other hand. But then right now, I’ve already settled in my place, I’m comfortable with it. So there you go, it’s not that complicated at all. I really mean it this time.
In your song ‘A Little Bit of Everything’ why is there a line saying ‘The only way you can change is from inside your head’?
You know that thing about the song we have in the video, it’s called ‘It’s My Baby’? I mean it’s just something that was very touching to me because I really was crying when I wrote this song. And I was just really happy that one day someone was going to come out there and bring the light, make the world a better place. And it’s so beautiful in a way but it’s very sad when all the hope of changing the way things are in your life is going to give you away. So yeah, it’s just something that I really thought about a lot, it kind of gave me the song. I was crying a little bit the first time it was written. And I was just so happy that somebody was saying to me ‘come back with this song,’ and when I looked at it back then, and I look at it now, the same thing’s like ‘wow, you wrote so much, how do you have such a deep and real feeling in it?’
