: :Hey Mickster,
: Yeah I'd love to hear your thoughts on the Jack Casady bass when you get it.
: I've always been interested in hollow-bodied basses probably because they
: just look soooo cool! I remember trying out an orange Gretsch something
: and it sounded amazing but really not at all what I was looking for at the time.
: Been listening to alot of Jamerson lately and thinking about the '62
: Reissues, know anything about 'em? Monk Montgomery really got me going though for electric walking, not too fancy just excellent time and tone, playing with his thumb must have alot to do with it. Speaking of Carvins, I have a Bunny Brunel CD from a year back, forget the name right now but his fretless tone is pretty cool. As far as fretless tone though I really love Victor Wootens Compito 5 on the Yin Yang cd and also the sound of fretless Musicman's like Levin and Palladino and Klein. What are some of your favorites? Talk to you soon.
oops! i forgot! of course i love jacos tone but i'd rather stay away from that...
