Black Velvet Bass January 23, 2021

Posted by Retired Geezer in News.

It’s no secret that I wanna be like Dave in Texas. One of the ways I can emulate him is by learning how to play Bass Guitar.

Here’s what I’ve been working on lately. It’s Tom Bornemann’s Bass cover of Black Velvet.

Black Velvet was originally recorded in the key of Eb.

The lowest note on a 4-string Bass is E so how the heck can you play in Eb without re-tuning? (it’s hard)

Thankfully Tom changed the key to E instead of the original key of Eb. Bless you, Tom.

Fun Factoid: Here are a few popular songs in the Dreaded Eb key that have absolutely nothing in common but the Key signature, except two of them are by Don Henley.

Brooks & Dunn My Maria

Carrie Underwood Good Girl

Don Henley Boys of Summer

Don Henley End of the Innocence

Eddie Money Take Me Home Tonight

Evanescence Lithium

Jimi Hendrix All Along the Watchtower

Josh Turner Would You Go with Me

Kool & the Gang Celebration

Metallica Turn The Page

Stevie Wonder Superstition

The McCoys Hang On Sloopy

Jason Aldean She’s Country ~ This song is done in Eb drop Db. Why, Jason, WHY?

Well, that’s my story… How are things in Your town?

I think it needs a few more “Good Gawd”s and acrobatic splits with windmilling arms.



High-water pants, socks with sandals, I think the bass guitarist is on the spectrum.
