Pink Floyd – Sheep – Isolated Bass & Drums

Pink Floyd – Sheep – Isolated Bass & Drums –> Keys/synths were included in some sections. These stem tracks were isolated using “spleeter”. This new technology can isolate tracks from digital recordings. It’s newer technology still in development (2020). The tracks are choppy, wavy, robotic – bass and drums often not very pronounced. But it’s amazing that we now have the ability to do this at all. Otherwise the only way to get stem tracks is to obtain them from the original recordings – if such tracks exist!

Published to help learn the bass and drums parts to “Sheep”. Use as a backing track for guitar, keys, synths, vocals.

~ Sheep Lyrics:

Hopelessly passing your time in the grassland away
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air
You better watch out
There may be dogs about
I’ve looked over Jordan, and I have seen
Things are not what they seem

What do you get for pretending the danger’s not real
Meek and obedient you follow the leader
Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel
What a surprise

The look of terminal shock in your eyes
Now things are really what they seem
No, this is no bad dream

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me down to lie
Through pastures green He leadeth me the silent waters by
With bright knives he releaseth my soul

He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places
He converteth me to lamb cutlets
For lo, He hath great power, and great hunger
When cometh the day we lowly ones

Through quiet reflection, and great dedication
Master the art of karate
Lo, we shall rise up
And then we’ll make the bugger’s eyes water

Bleating and babbling we fell on his neck with a scream
Wave upon wave of demented avengers
March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream

Have you heard the news?
The dogs are dead
You better stay home
And do as you’re told
Get out of the road if you want to grow old
