    Help educate this P player!

    I'm trying to get an idea for what jazz basses sound like strung with flatwounds, *specifically finger-style tone*. Can anyone recommend any song titles that will give me a good example of this?

    So far I've found Meshell Ndegeocello and Joe Osborn, although, wasn't Joe a pick player? Are there any specific songs with his fingered tone?

    Any other recommendations would be much appreciated!
  2. Listen to "The Thrill is Gone" by B.B. King. Jerry Jemmott is playing a Jazz with flatwounds. Great tone.
