    Guys,

    I've kind of been thinking about getting into playing some piccolo bass, frankly because I don't think those guitar players smell very good. Anyway, I strung up an old bass piccolo for the first time tonight and recorded a little bit.

    There's not that much too it, I just layered some "guitar" loops and tried to do my best which in this case might not be that hot. Let me know what I can do to get a better tone out of the thing, to the extent that's possible(?).

    I actually plan to play some jazzier tasteful chord melody stuff, but I guess I had to get something like this out of my system.
