hope that I can explain what my problem is! I find when I play the acoustic it is harder for me to hear than when I play the bass guitar (which i do not play very much) It has nothing to do with technique but sound, I can hear the lines much clearer and can play more by ear and instinct than when playing the acoustic (but the acoustic is my main instrument and have played it for years, play a lot of shows and travel with it in many different settings and rooms). Usually I am playing a GK and then going through the PA as well--------------- perhaps it has something to do with the overtones i'm getting with the acoustic that do not come into play with the electric? I've used many different pickups and think that it mostly has to do with my equalization. I also use a bass pod. Should I use the effects send option? HOpe this made sense............... I know what I want to say but when i read this even i confuse myself!
