DREAM CHASER My Second Solo Album
 

Martin Motnik with Gregg Bissonette - Bass Invader 

SIGNED AND NUMBERED CDS

I decided to use the time during the pandemic productively and have recorded a new solo album. Following the tradition of "Bass Invader" I played everything on bass guitars, on top of world-class drum tracks. I was fortunate to win Gregg Bissonette to play again, alongside of Christopher Williams, Joe Babiak, and Walfredo Reyes Jr. Each song was also supposed to have a guest musician, like I had Mattias IA Eklundh on two songs. This time I went all in and got an amazing guest musician on every song. The result is an amazing collaboration of musical superstars on 10 bass-heavy songs.

All CDs are numbered and signed; you'll be getting a unique copy out of this batch of only 500 copies!

Problem Solvers

Little Life Hacks For Bass Players

Here I’m sharing solutions to problems I’ve encountered over the years of playing. This section will be expanded on an ongoing basis.

Martin Motnik’s Kwik Picks

I prefer fingerstyle playing, but sometimes a song – or a part of a song – calls to be played with a pick. I came up with the following solution: place a strip of self-adhesive hook-and-loop (also known as “Velcro®”) tape – the soft side – into the upper cutaway of your instrument. Take your favorite type of pick and place a round piece of the scratchy side on it (do it to a couple of picks so you have a backup). Place them onto the soft strip and Voila! you’ll always have a pick handy! You can grab it in a fraction of a second during a song and put it back just as fast. If you drop it you’ll have spares, but it will rarely happen because the dot gives you additional grip.

Kwik Pick applied

Very easy to do, but if you rather don’t want to go through the hassle of finding and cutting the right sizes of tapes and dots, I have sets of six picks for sale. Just PayPal me $10 and I’ll send you a package ready to be applied on your favorite instrument. Very useful for guitar players too, so make sure you tell your axe slinger about it.
