How cool is this?

    Woohoo. Saw Stu Hamm tonight, what a bass player. Did a lot of stuff, did Moonlight Sonata intertwined with Abbey Road, played Star Spangled Banner, a Mingus tune, a couple of original pieces, including a tango, and an all-harmonic tune which used to be called 'Portrait Of Anne' but he changed to 'Anne You Bitch, I Never Want To See You Again As Long As You Live'


    Genuinely a funny guy, no ego and really talented. His moves were very impressive, but more than technique an underlying motive of musicality came through. His fast slapping, tapping, raking and fingerpicking were just tools to get the music out of his bass, and carry his emotion forward. He wasn't predjudiced against any players, he cited his love for pick players and how he hated not being able to use one. The only thing he expressed any negative opinion about was SVT's - 'This BAM lets you get that ****ty SVT tone if you like.'


    Also, the Peavey artist liasion was great on guitar, playing a cool EVH custom. Stu played a red metallic sparkle Urge II, through a BAM combo and a Pro 500 head with Pro 410 and Pro 115 cabs.
