    Hey guys, another lesson for ya!

    I'm sure you've been in a situation before where the bass your playing might not quite suit the 'vibe' of the song.

    You know what I mean... you wish you had a super modern tone for some songs and a vintage tone for others...

    This happens to me all the time... and in the heat of battle - theatre pits etc sometimes there's simply not enough time to start swopping basses etc!

    Well... In this new lesson I'll show you exactly how I get around this issue with a technique I use ALL the time.

    Over and out,

  2. Hi Scott,
