I performed this piece on a standard Chapman Stick (TM). It was recorded in one live take, except for one low A at the beginning of Aspirations that required an overdub. Standard tuning was used: opposing fourths and fifths.
If you enjoy Cogs/Aspirations, you might be interested in my solo albums. One of them, Stickburst (picture above), features three other Gentle Giant songs played on The Stick, plus numerous other originals and covers.
