The simple concept of Marsha Ambrosius in her music video for ‘Far Away’ is not the most groundbreaking of inspirations.

The tragic love story between two lovers is a common theme that has been explored in countless plays, movies, dramas, and musicals. However, Ambrosius adds a unique touch to the song by incorporating serious subjects such as suicide, LGBTQ+ rights, and discrimination.

The video portrays Ambrosius spending time with a charming man who is popular among their social circle. However, as soon as his sexual orientation becomes apparent, those who previously enjoyed his company suddenly turn against him, leading to the man taking his own life. Ambrosius stated that the video is not only about her personal contribution to the much-discussed topic but also aims to shed light on the devastating consequences that LGBTQ+ individuals have to endure due to anti-gay bullying in society.

In an interview with MTV News, Ambrosius explained, “The concept for ‘Far Away’ wasn’t unexpected for me as it was a personal experience that I had while writing the song. It stemmed from an experience I went through around the time I wrote it, which was in 2008, when a friend of mine …

Firstly, anyone looking to professionally record music should have some form of multi-track recorder. You can opt for an analog multi-track recorder that uses tape or a digital recorder that utilizes digital tape, similar to zip drives. Analog tape recorders are generally the most affordable option available. The increasingly popular recorder is the one that uses a hard drive. This type of recorder relies on a computer hard drive to store your music and channel configurations. The size of the hard drive varies depending on the make of the digital recorder, as does the amount of data it can store.

Custom bass guitars go beyond being mere instruments; they are an extension and expression of who you are as a musician. While many companies offer custom basses and can do a good job, you desire more than just average. To truly have a bass that is “customized,” you need to find the right builder. Consider all aspects of what you want in your instrument before making a decision.

First and foremost, you should consider the “curb appeal.” In other words, how do you want your bass to look? If your bass is visually unappealing, you won’t fully appreciate its other qualities. It’s important to choose a design that catches your eye and makes you feel good every time you see it. The visual aspect is crucial, as it contributes to your overall satisfaction in playing the instrument. There are various options available to give your bass that desired curb appeal, including different woods, finishes, and hardware. That’s why it’s crucial to work with a craftsman who has years of experience and expertise in woods, electronics, setups, and all other aspects of the building process.
