SEE MARTIN, before you disagree with me, understand, the word
TONE, isn't synonimous with technique :) I never said a good
TONE = a good bassist.
I'm saying that TONE can result from a person setting an SVT/
Nice jazz bass together, and tweaking them so just playing the
open g string has a NICE TONE...
So Jaco playing a musicmaster bass, can produce a nicer BLEND,
then most with an Alembic, and a nicer guitar :) If we just define
tone as "sound in general", and not the quality of a particular
frequency interpretted by the human ear, then yes..I concede...
It's all in the fingers...

I'd concede to "Tone involves the fingers", I'd disagree
with "Tone is in the fingers".
You know, I still have that tape you
sent me way back when, of you jamming to some jazz
There is still an Echo CD project, but I haven't received much after thefirst
people have sent me their contributions. I will not give up and maybe it will take another year,. But there will be an echo CD before this echo dies, and even if I have to play everything myself :))))))
Well, I'm putting together a new home studio -- have everything in place, new multitrack, rack
mount delay, etc. Just need to get the amp some new tubes and I'll be ready to roll. So maybe
I'll get something done before the end of the year...
I hardly play anymore... I guess, I have reached a time in my life,
when I don't really want to play... well... but I guess, the cause
of that is a certain lady :)
"woman interferring with guitar"
well.......it's sad yet common ..... That's why a always schedule
myself for music time, and time with Rubberina, this way I keep
things in a healthy perspective.
