    I have recently been listening to the late, great Curtis Mayfield
    and was impressed by the bass playing on various tracks ,I was wondering if any of you guys know the name of the bass player (and if you like his style). I also love the fuzz/distortion sound he gets on some tracks e.g - 'Freddies dead'. Do any of you know exactly what distortion effect he is using because it sounds perfect and I want that exact same tone. Thanks in advance

    I love Curtis Mayfield. Sorry I'don't know the bass players name but he is pretty good. Something that you can really groove to. :cool:
