Hi Mike, I know that you play solo bass a lot of the time, but I was just wondering from curiosity, do ever use a capo on some occasions? I know Michael Manring has, once or twice with his solo stuff. On another note............ Also with your solo bass books "The Chordal Approach" Vols 1 and 2, there's also a local Sydney bassist by the name of Steve Hunter (www.stevehuntermusic.com) who's completing a book + Cd publication of twenty solo pieces for 4 stringed bass. He even released a solo bass album in the 90's called 'Night People'. -Jerome PS The solo bass research is going just fine!
