In 1994 I moved to Italy, courtesy USAF orders. The base's policy was for GIs to arrive without families, and find a home before bringing them over. For three months I lived in a hotel, with my hold baggage--stuff to get you by while your household goods shipped over--to keep me happy.
Fortunately, I'd already moved three times on AF orders, and knew how important this hold baggage would be. I included my Ibanez 5-string bass, a small amp, and Gemini Scratch Master PDM 1012.
The Gemini was (still is, and I still use it) a 2 x stereo line mixer with a mic input, "talkover" function, and other standard DJ stuff. But the reason I'd bought it was for its speed-controllable 8-second digital sampling ability. I could record up to eight seconds of whatever, manipulate the sample's speed (or not) and loop it, and then play a second part over it. Perfect for toying around with bass guitar ideas.
At the time I was in the town of Aviano's shittiest hotel, the Doimo. Oh, the stories I could tell you about this rat hole. The Doimo, rated by the Italian government as a 1-star establishment, was just a couple miles from my job on the US air base flight line, and a convenient place from which to hunt for houses/apartments, and during my spare time, to put some bass guitar ideas to tape.
Thus I give you some bass ideas I laid down on three separate nights, in 1994, in the fabulous Doimo Hotel.
