Well, if there's one thing I've learned through the making of this album is that I used to be god awful at writing bass lines. For a while I thought the mix was the issue with this one track. It isn't, I just got lazy on the harmony 🙃

The good news is, now that I've actually started learning the bass, my intuition for it is evolving by the day. I'm going through bar by bar and rewriting the problematic bits with an actual physical instrument in my hands. Aaah the benefits of actually embodying the music 🤩

My bass line shortcomings were highlighted in a particularly egregious way on this cut because the harmony is very bossa nova/neo soul inspired; pretty unforgiving...

You live and you learn!
