Hello, Something I am having a bit of difficulty with of late is fast walking lines on electric bass. The problem isn't with the note choice (although that can be suspect at times!) but with the inherent tone of electric bass - it just doesn't seem to sit with fast, fast swing/bop. At that tempo URB can have a bounce to it while still sounding light (a perfect example is Cherokee on the Wynton Marsalis Village Vanguard boxset). The closest I can get to this tone on electric is palm muting, but after a minute of that the hand is just too fatigued to maintain any sort of tone. Also, I haven't heard any electric players with the sort of tone I'm after swing at that speed. Even Anthony Jackson (the tone of which I'm usually a massive fan) seems to break up at tempos above 250. For example, his tone on a version of Take the A Train is disgusting! I should also add that it is not a problem with cleanliness of tone - I can play quite comfortable at that tempo without any fret buzz or string noise, so that's not the problem. It seems to be an issue with the way in which electric sounds at fast tempos - perhaps it takes longer/shorter for the note to develop on an electric? Anyway - it'd be great if you could let me hear/point me in the direction of recordings of fast walking lines on electric that have overcome these problems. Your suggestions on how to help electric "sit" at these tempos would also be welcome. Cheers, Douglas.
