Exploring a couple of concepts behind a less conventional kind of playing and how to use these ideas when creating bass parts with a great example like the song #YoureMyBestFriend by #Queen, released in 1975 on the legendary ANATO [#Elektra].Written by John Deacon, this tune offers some great insights for how you can take more of a lead role on the bass while still laying it down.YMBF is a shuffle with a long form and many chords, so Deacon approaches it almost like a jazz tune.Given Queen’s notorious attention to detail, I’d bet this was a written-out part, although it changes throughout the song quite a bit. ✒bassplayer.com
A very intelligently arranged pop-song. With that song, John Deacon became the 3rd band-member who could earn royalties for a hit.The main backing-choirs are probably done on 3tracks (by Freddie, Roger & Brian for the lower voice).Then there´s another track by Freddie & Roger with additional backing vocals.Besides the main lead-vocal-track, Freddie recorded another track for some additional vocals.The backing vocals were all bounced together. John´s 2nd song to appear on a record & already a top-10 - hit. This guy always knew how to write radio-friendly songs. ✒queensongs.info
