Esa Línea de Bajo Sal Cuevas

Kirsty MacColl's My Affair - Tapping Latin Bass by Sal Cuevas

One of the stars of Tropical Brainstorm, Sal Cuevas, died a year ago in Miami.  For many years part of the legendary Fania All-Stars, he added impossible bass imbellishments to Kirsty’s Latin ride.

Impossible no more?  Andrew Nelson has recently finished a transcription of the original album version’s bass break in My Affair – a bass tapping solo by Sal at 3:30 in the track.   Andrew’s transcription and performance of it can be found here:

It’s Philip Rambow!! It’s the Tex Pistols!!  And you thought we could leave this out …

There's a Guy Works Down the CHIP SHOP Swears He's Elvis

That’s it for the daily updates, why not record a Kirstysong, post it somewhere and we’ll post it.

It helps if it’s a less common song, in tune, well sung and filmed, and someone to tell us … but we’ll go anywhere the mood takes us!  More at the end of ’18!
