(click on it!) played with a 68 jazz. i play the first part of the clip fingerstyle, the second part pickstyle. i increase the gain incrementally with each repetition of the fingerstyle riff. at the end of the fingerstyle section, i lower the bass's volume by about half to give you an idea of what that does. recorded into an M-Audio Profire 610 interface. someday soon, i'll get a mic and do it that way, but for now this is the best i can do. let me know what you think, and if you'd like to hear something else that i didn't address in the clip.
