    Aston "Family Man" Barrett...

    I have a book on him that tells all of the songs which he played on. I'll post as soon as I get off of work.
    Interesting fact about him, he used relative tuning (tuning to his bass) instead of textbook tuning.

    His brother Secco played drums for The Wailers, the infamous t-shirts under the tom heads to give that certain low res 'pop' that you hear in certain songs like Get up, Stand up.

    FAmily Man's brother was not Secco . His brother was Carlton Barrett. Family Man is featured on most every Bob Marley album.

    Family Man and the rest of the backing band started playing with bob marley on The Wailers' major label debut Catch A Fire through their last album Uprising . He was part of the Wailers so he played on all their albums. Robbie Shakespeare did play bass on Concrete Jungle off of Catch a Fire though.

    What do you mean by "relative tuning" ?
