The bass line is something I've been plucking out on cello for like 15 years. Glue your hand in fourth position and all the notes are under your fingers without stretching. I have a lot of trouble with intonation and this whole project for me is about learning to play (finally), so I wrote it out and learned to play it on electric bass, where the strings are in fourths not fifths so it takes a little moving around. The Precision Bass (copy) lives up to its name and the bass line gets to be the foundation of all the other stuff, where I can try to play in tune on top of that. The cellos came out good enough I think. The bass solo outro is my favorite part.
