    He is one of the best. No one sounds like him, he has a unique technique.

    He's playing a lot of notes, but it's all in the pocket and the fills are super tasty.

    Impressive, yeah!

    Wow never thought the NKOTB bassist was this good! But I've heard of this Ethan Guy and I know he's impressive as all get out. the runs and licks he's doing at 2:30 are tooOoOo groovin'. Wow.

    Hey why are you watching NKOTB anyways? :bag:

    i'll tell you what would be larger than life.. a chart and isolated bass track of that performance.. HOLY Crud.

    Those singers should be ashamed...

    The bassist is in a different league... Drummer too...

    what the heck are the deets on the bass he is playing here?!?!

    model P bridge pickup?
    Model J neck pickup? Warmoth bits?

    im in love with this green bodied bass with white pickups. the tone is to die for.
  13. Damn my wife just walked in and caught me listening to New Kids on the Block :oops:

    Best kept secret in the Fender-copy bass world.

    The bridge pickup is even closer to the bridge than 70's Fenders.

    That's some church playin' if I've ever heard it. He's essentially playing two instruments simultaneously: bass and a kind of low rhythm guitar riffing part. Making the guitar player's life so easy in the process. All he has to do is just stand there and look cool...
