    Too cool that Elvis gave his band a share of the spotlight. "On the Fender bass"....how cool!

    Very cool clip. That bass looks like kind of a "dark gold" finish. Am I seeing that right?

    I'm a Doors fanatic, and Jerry laid down some great bass lines on L.A. Woman. One of my favs is "Love Her Madly".

    Sounds like Geezer Butler in a blues setting.

    Oh, yeah!! About 6 months ago I sat down and did my best to figure out the bass part for "Love Her Madly." I usually don't try to copy exactley what players are doing, but this seemed like and interesting part. Wow!! I tried my best to get every single little nuance and feel like I came pretty close. Not to make it sound like it was easy because it wasn't. But he's doing some very interesting things there. The way he accent's certain phrases, note duration....it's a great piece to study especially when you listen to how it all fits in so well, especially with Ray and John's part's.

    I'm also a Doors fanatic. Those guys KNEW how to craft songs.

    I'm not sure which is cooler - his playing or his lapels.

    Anybody know how Jerry got that incredible tone on "The Changeling," on LA Woman?
    Did that sound come out of a Sunn?

    He is playing through a Music Man amp. Wondering what he is using for distortion.
