Psychedelic Bass Guitar Solo
My name is Max O’Meara and I have been playing primarily the bass guitar for roughly 4 years as well as the drum kit and electric guitar. My play style revolves around Funk and alternative rock. Upon selecting Music 1 as an elective for the HSC, I had little intention for music to become such a large part of my life. However, selecting Music 1 has all but dampened my drive and passion for music as I now aspire to become a fulltime musician.
My core performance for the HSC is a piece by Funkadelic called “Maggot Brain” which falls under the topic Rock music. The piece is originally a psychedelic guitar solo, whereas my rendition is a psychedelic Bass guitar solo using a variety of effects pedals, which is a strong representation of my Bass-playing style. In addition to this, I elected to do 3 more performance pieces on the Bass guitar. These pieces were “Alice in my fantasies” for rock music, “love Trilogy” for instrument repertoire and “Goodbye Angels” for 20/21st century music.
