Ok, this post is mainly aimed at those of us on the european side of the Atlantic, I'm supposing that those on the windy side will not know what I'm talking about - Slade, No.1 glam-rock bands of the 1970's, Merry Christmas Everybody, iconic royalty generator for Noddy Holder. The original bassist, Jim Lea - played it on a Gibson bass and not so much played it with a pick but whacked it with I don't know what. I can see why, the eight-note groove at 120BPM needs a legato effect that I think if difficult with fingers. Anyway, my question: in the absence of a Gibson bass, what is best suited for the job: 1 - Standard P-Bass 2 - Jazz Deluxe 3 - Stingray HS ???
