Great Performances: Simon Fitzpatrick Performs The Yes Classic Roundabout

http://www.simon-fitzpatrick.com


As a full time musician, I find myself enjoying and appreciating music by artists in all different types of musical genres. There's something to like in every genre (yes, even hip hop) and even if I cannot perform or write for those genres myself, I find myself drawn to the excellence and artistry that many performers put out there.


Solo guitar performance is a particular favorite of mine. I do not have the deterity to ever achieve much on a guitar myself, but I find myself drawn in by outstanding solo guitar players. The first time I heard a Kaki King solo, I was mezmerized. I felt similarly listening to Tommy Emmanuel, Preston Reed, and even Jake Shiamburuko on ukulele. Here is another to add to that list, only this time on the 6-string electric bass.


Simon Fitzpatrick is an up-and-coming bassist from England whose solo bass performances have been making the rounds on YouTube. This particular solo is his rendition of the Yes classic "Roundabout", which involves a little use of a looping pedal for some of the ostinati and a whole lot of amazing solo playing. Keep watching to the end - there's an applause break around the 2:45 mark. Such smooth execution - he makes it all look so easy.
