    Hey whackabass! I'm really glad I listened to you. I really got off on that!
    Bach's notes were there, even if nothing else is relevant to his musical experience.

    Sure, playing a piano with bass is standard instrumentation,
    but not a Fender Jazz style bass with a piano uploaded to You Tube.

    It's a good thing another video began immediately, the Gibson S.G. style guitar and bass, or I would have missed it.
    This is way more non-traditional, electric guitar and bass, and I have some suggestions.

    The guitar easily could have pumped up the tone, trying to get into organ tones, easy to do,
    instead of being the just turned on, clean and plinky sound.
    Without being familiar with the pieces you played, I would think there should be more volume dynamics,
    again, easy to do.
    Why did you come over and sit on the edge of a couch while playing classical bass? Because you can!

    How about some Eric Satie, Les Gymnopedes, on bass with phased and softly distorted guitar?
    That's a request!

    However, I hope you know you're setting a bad example for rockers, with all your memory work.

    Not bad but you speeded up quite a bit in #1. a minor point
    I don’t want a signature any more

    Playing a song faster onstage than the original recording is a standard rock band technique.
    That would capture your attention more here, covering for the missing instrumentation.

    John, I was not on about the speed it was the speeding up that I was referring to.
    I don’t want a signature any more
