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.
