Im an electric bass player that has avoided uprights after a couple of lessons early in my 'career' discouraged me. But last night I saw Imelda May, and Al Gares sound has inspired me to make the leap to the doghouse. (His live sound last night blows away this YouTube, btw.) ‪Imelda May - Johnny Got A Boom Boom (ITV1 Loose Women)‬‏ - YouTube I know his technique is 90% responsible, but let's start with equipment choices for rockabilly. What should I be looking for in a bass and pickups?
