    Hmm. I thought this thread was going to be about me. I thought wrong, apparently.

    aw, don't worry ben, we still all think you are the hardest working prog bassist, even more than that weird bass/stick dude.

    Maybe he should mount one to the other.

    So is this guy... someone?

    Recordings? I think he's just posing with the stick, he doesn't really know what it is. What a jerk... I'm gonna kick his ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I make Ambient/Art rock... but I don't work very hard...

    Plus I guess I spend too much time in 4/4 to be progressive... :(

    yeah, he's somebody, he's 'our' bassist.

    just giving him some props.

    Plenty of stick and bass tunes online at our site. Even the one where he plays both in one song, as in that pic.

    How does your bassist like his stick? It looks like a 10 string. Does he have it tuned reciprocal, classical, or bass tuned?

    Is he actually playing both at once during a given song - or is he switching out?

    Great pic by the way.
