I payed in a RHCP tribute, and currently play in a Zep tribute. I grew up on the basslines of both those bands and the technique and sound just kinda came naturally to me. Or at least the ballpark sound. A stingray, and a jazz bass helped. Technique, IMO, plays a bigger part. Just got asked to play in a stones tribute. While I've always been a fan, I never really worked at recreating what was done on their albums. Some Stones material is a no brainer, but I had a go at Emotional Rescue last night. I hate covering improved bass lines... As I really like learning things note for note, but aside from that there's a pretty unique bass sound goin on there. Any body have any insight into that sound, and who's actually playing? Rumor has it that it's Ron Wood. So... Kind of a dual topic thread here. 2 questions? What's up with the bass on Emotional Rescue? What's your experience, thought, feelings, ideas, etc. regarding impersonating other people's sound and style?
