Could you cover Alien Days by MGMT :D 

Written By Boe Nakamura on July 20th, 2014 @ 10:07 am

The bassline kind of reminds me of “In the Meantime” by Spacehog.

Hello! The track is only the drum breat i made in cubase 3 using addictive
drums, however i do not have it anymore :(

Written By Bas Shiver on July 20th, 2014 @ 1:58 pm

Nice. Any idea what effect Dominic Simper uses on the CD to give it that
nice warm fuzz?

Written By Luke Anderson on July 20th, 2014 @ 2:42 pm

Is that finish in arctic white? I can’t tell from the lighting.

Please do a cover of keep on lying by tame impala!!!

Written By rhanzlikusaf on July 20th, 2014 @ 5:22 pm

kevin parker does the bass on this song. he does 99% of every tame impala
song. jay watson did keys on elephant and piano on apocalypse dreams.
besides that kevin does everything. i still dont get why no one knows he
does everything

Great video and great Rickenbacker! I have one myself, damn fine basses.

Thankyouuuu for this song! ♥

Written By FilthInTheBeauty24 on July 20th, 2014 @ 7:37 pm

nice job, but check the rhythm at the part when it goes up to the 14th

Written By backtodacahpett on July 20th, 2014 @ 7:57 pm

i would say that it’s white, but not arctic, it is very old bass, so in
some places it’s even getting a bit yellow ;)

Thanks, it looks nice, how much did it cost? Does it have all the controls
a normal rickenbacker has? Are there any other rickenbacker replica

Written By Michael Kumo on July 21st, 2014 @ 6:23 am

Thanks for the info :) i think some people sell Ricks on ebay for about
$1200 i think i’ve seen, they’re not cheap at all :D

Written By Michael Kumo on July 21st, 2014 @ 7:14 am

Hello and Thank you! I don’t use any pedals in this video it is pretty much
