    That's the other thing. Much respect to Geddy Lee and Esperanza Spalding. Singing with guitar is not too difficult but singing with bass is way complicated. Another thing about playing is, exactly what you are describing... GETTING IT RIGHT. Staying in the pocket; not overplaying; cutting through the mix. It's more complicated than it looks.

    Amen to that brother! Not just about landing the notes. It's so much more.

    Picked up the bass again recently, but I'm a lefty and the bass is my right handed Biscuit Tin Bass, so I've learnt how to play bass upside down.

    Been playing Pink Floyds "Money" a lot, a bit of Muddy Waters "Mannish Boy" and "Hoochie Coochie Man" and a bit of Queen "Another One Bites the Dust" and "Under Pressure". Also got real into Motown and had to learn "I Heard it Through the Grapevine" and "Papa was a Rolling Stone". P1222526.JPG

    I really want to learn Jets "Are you Gonna be my Girl" and The Jams "A Town Called Malice". Might have to break out my left handed double neck Bass/Guitar for those though.

    Most of my time lately on bass has been on the LTD four string. My #1 (a fiver) has been in air conditioned, storage in the HSC. I'm going to bring it home, and change the 9V. That one has a passive/active switch. My guess is that it's still in tune - a keeper!

    I recorded this a couple months ago but I've been working extensively on it today, the video is about mixing bass but you can hear pretty much the whole bassline
