I wqas watching "Standing in the Shadows of Motown", and this bassist was talking about how he met James Jamerson. He said that Jamerson went on stage, took the bassist's bass, and started to play. The bass was supposedly very low-quality, but Jamerson made it sound like a million bucks. Now, my question is, does the quality of the bass matter? I mean, I know if the bass is totally unplayable that's one thing, but if the bassist is good, shouldn't that be more powerful than the bass they are playing?
