Strange dream the other night - no doubt caused by the reading of the purchase of Nino Browns latest Spector. FYI -Nino works at my friendly neighborhood music store. In the dream I went into the store and the owner told me they had a great new Spector on sale (sorry Nino, you weren't in the dream). It was under 500 bucks, black sparkle, and had the STREAMER shape, like the other Spectors. Yes I know who originalted the shape. The cool thing about this bass was it had these weird platic pieces that I could only think up in a dream. Right below each string where I'd play it with my right hand were 4 little plastic ramp like pieces that made my fingers slide on them after I pulled the string. Almost like training wheels on a bass. The bass also had nylon stings on it... hmmmmmm. I've been trying to lighten up on my right hand technique. Even in the dream I couldn't afford the bass. Had it been a lucid dream I'd have taken every bass off the rack, told them to put it on my card, run home with them all and stayed asleep for a week or two.
