Bass Cover #187: DIE TOTEN HOSEN - Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist
covers · 13. May 2024
I remember I had to drive somewhere and I didn't feel so well. I was depressed and uncertain of my future. And suddenly I heard this song on the radio. “Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist” (“Stand up when you're on the floor”) by Die Toten Hosen (an extremely popular German pop punk band) is just a typical “come on, cheer up, everything's not that bad” song, I know it but for some reason that was exactly what I needed back then. It was like a message from a close friend in the musical...

Bass Cover #186: POISON - Ride The Wind
covers · 23. April 2024
With “Ride The Wind” by Poison I'd like to open a short yet special set of bass covers. Maybe with only 3 or 4 songs. And these will be the songs that... well, basically helped me to survive. I guess everyone here had a moment or two in life when everything seemed to be absolutely hopeless and dark. I cannot call myself a very lucky guy but I was always lucky enough to hear the right song at the right moment. You know, that true magic moment when you're absolutely destroyed and suddenly...

Bass Cover #185: W.A.S.P. - High On The Flames
covers · 13. April 2024
Okay, after two months dedicated to moving across the country I tried to play again and found out I have to practice a lot again just to get back somehow. You know, painting walls, dragging heavy stuff, driving huge vans, etc isn't really what my hands needed all this time. So, I just decided to start with a long-promised cover for “High On The Flames” by W.A.S.P.

Bass Cover #184: KISS - All American Man
covers · 24. February 2024
It's time to cover another “Alive II” studio track and this time it's “All American Man”. Maybe not a hit but still a good Paul's song with a fun bass part. Try it!

Bass Cover #183: FLOWING TEARS - Sistersum
covers · 22. January 2024
At the beginning of this century, Flowing Tears was one of my favorite German goth metal/dark rock bands. They had two things about them – very nice melodies and an outstanding original voice of Stefanie Duchêne (now in Behind Your Fear).

Bass Cover #182: MONO INC. - Boatman
covers · 15. January 2024
A perfect example of making a truly epic and touching song with only three notes! In my opinion, it's a great dark rock track which is actually a collaboration between the band MONO INC and the singer of VNV NATION Ronan Harris.

Bass Cover #181: ACE FREHLEY - Bronx Boy
covers · 08. January 2024
Finally, caught the right mood for “Bronx Boy” by one and only Space Ace. Awesome song, and I think it's worth mentioning that Ace recorded the bass part for it himself. Enjoy!

Bass Cover #180: JOACHIM WITT - Bataillon D'Amour
covers · 29. December 2023
“Bataillon D'Amour” recorded by the band Silly and released in 1986 was a major hit in the DDR. Later, in 2000 one of my favorite German singers/musicians Joachim Witt recorded and released his own version of this song and... I love it! Actually, I heard his version long before I heard the original.

Bass Cover #179: KING DIAMOND - At The Graves
covers · 23. December 2023
The album “Conspiracy” is very special for me because it was the first King Diamond album I was waiting for as a fan. For some reason, I still remember when I bought this cassette (I was 13 and I didn't have money for a vinyl), put it into my walkman, and... yeah, it was true magic. I didn't understand the lyrics but I bought them (on a bunch of b/w photos) and spent weeks translating them with a dictionary :) Of course, my translation was awful but good enough to understand the main story....

Bass Cover #178: TIFFANY - I Think We're Alone Now
covers · 07. December 2023
I know this song has been played by literally anyone for ages... well, anyway, I'm in the mood for it right now. The song is cool, all '80s, with no real bass on the record so you can play it any way you want or stick to the electronic bass part as I did. The original part is simple and you can play it in your sleep :) Will choose something more challenging next time.
