I am developing a friendship with a new band forming in the area. I went to their gig last night and I was paying most attention to the bass player. His chops were good. But it seemed like when he got particularly syncopated with some fast frills the 16th notes disappeared. I could see his fingers, I knew in my head what the line should sound like, but some of the notes just seemed to disappear and then the sound picked up again later in the bar. If there were 12 notes in the bar, it was like notes 4 and 5 and 9 and 10 just disappeared between his fingers and my ears. I am wondering if it could be his amp. He was playing through an SWR Workingman's 4004 into a Goliath III on top of a GK RBH 115. It was not an extremely loud band, the guitars were playing through Roland Cubes. Any ideas?
