"Winter Marches On" bass line

Ask Katy

A question about the song Winter Marches On from the Notorious album. The bass line on that song sounds like it has been done on a acoustic or standing-up bass (I mean the sort of bass that is used in classical concerts). Did John do that himself or did Nick conjure it up from his computer? I have seen pictures of John playing an acoustic bass and as I love Winter Marches On very much, I am just dying to know the truth. Lots of love, Martine from Holland

It was done on Sinclavier. John" "Yes, a sinclavier, which is a digital synthesizer manufactured in the 1980s.NR"
