    Do you happen to remember what bass you used? I was just listening to Sea Change this morning and that bass tone really stood out, in a good way. It's actually the first time I've really zoned into the bass part while listening to that song. I suppose that means it's fairly captivating because that's usually the first thing I do! Anyway, that whole album is such a masterclass in good taste and tone, from everyone involved. I wish Beck would've made a "Making Of..." documentary for that project...I'd be watching it everyday, for sure.

    50th Anniv Fender P Bass, D'Addario Chromes, B-15R, no DI. Thanks for the love on that! Ah, a "Making Of.." would be much fun indeed. I think, even more paramount to that, is figuring out a way to "get the band back together" and do another one like that, and like Mutations, which was done in the exact same room with the exact same people.

    That would be most appreciated and a killer live show to boot!

    That would be a cream-dream!!! Honestly, you, Beck, Nigel (for recording), Smokey, Joey, that dancing guy... that's one of the few bands (of my lifetime) that I always wanted to see that I never got to. I was all set, then Beck went out w/ the Flaming Lips instead.

    Chromes, eh? I would've guessed some worn-in rounds b/c of the amount of sustain. Guess those strings are more versatile than I thought. Cool, thanks for the reply on that.

    Yes, indeed, that reunion would be epic. So, shall we start a campaign to get the Mutations/Sea Change band back together? ;-)
