    OK, I guess I've acquired enough gear for the time being -- time to start work on the playing.

    ;)

    If a friend of mine said he wanted to play bass for Stevie Ray Vaughn (ok, or some actual live texas blues player) I'd explain to him what I-IV-V was, and show him the I-IV-V-VI-VII arpeggio, and maybe a turnaround or two...

    My question for thos of you in the know is, what sorts of things would you show me, if I were to say "damn, I really love that dave weckl album -- what the heck is the bass player doing???"

    Thanks in advance,
