: Do you people realize what a solid, bad-ass bass player this guy is? (He played with Stevie Vaughan) I got this audition for a working band next thursday, so I was working on some of the songs they gave me...Holy cow, I thought I could play the blues....but this guy is a monster! Maybe I just don't have a whole lot of expeirience with great blues lines..but this guy is playing some stuff that is blowing me away. I never really listened that closely to SRV before. Oh to some day be be as solid as tommy..........peace. John

Yeah man....Tommy is STEADY...It's not as easy as it seems to lay down
that solid groove...It might only be 3 or 4 chords, but it's tough to
lay down those lines and make the song swing like Tommy does...Another
guy that's a master at that is John McVie...Not real flashy or chops-y..
but oh so solid...

Cheers,
Pat H
