Hi, I'm Richard and I play bass guitar and double bass. For quite a few years now (well over 10), I've had my '78 Jazz Bass in tenor tuning (A,D,G,C) and I love it. I bought a six string once, but this particular bass had no 'guts' and I couldn't afford a better one so I decided to stick with my tenor. I have a big solo repertoire of jazz standards, Spanish stlye tunes, Italian tunes and originals. I think that the tenor is a wonderful solo instrument. Is there anyone out there who is into solo tenor bass? I'm the only one in my area (Wellington, NZ) as far as I know.
