: what was the first recording of the Fender 4str electric bass? I mean what song was the first recorded to use this instrument.
: and I don't mean that Fender "IV Bass" or whatever that thing was
I dont know the name of the song,but Monk Montgomery is considered to be the first electric bassist to record the instrument.
The Fender Bass VI was a six string guitar tuned an octave lower,but Monk used a normal Fender bass to record with.
Hope this helped somewhat.
