    Great player, but dang, why should I pick up the bass anymore? Not only are the notes good, his tone is on point!

    It is also great for busting a GAS bubble because you cannot buy what that kid has got.

    But seriously, would love to have that bass. Looks like some kind of non-export CIJ Jazz?

    Above is the original. The name of the bassist Randy Hope-Taylor. He played for Incognito on several albums.

  15. He might not know his ABC's, but he definitely knows his EADG's!

    He is an excellent player. Any 34" scale bass can be turned into a medium scale (capo on 1st fret, retune, check intonation) or a short scale (capo on 2nd fret, retune, check intonation). Except for the first and second frets, the fingerboard is the same size no matter which scale it is.

    Ideally every generation raises the bar in all fields. I mean aren’t we glad this generation of medical professionals has more knowledge, skills and resources than those of 40 year ago?

    I love it when he seems to be concentrating really hard and then that infectious smile breaks out!

    He ought to hook up with Miu Miu guitargirl!
