Question that's been on my mind for some time now. Obviously, by playing a EB, you are not changing the structure, beat, or origin of the song, though some purist argue that playing an EB in Bluegrass is "wrong". For example, I remember that loser Ralph Emry (sp) looking down on the bassist of New Grass Revival (who's a killer bassist) simply for the fact he was an electric bassist. Still, in Rock n' Rolls early days, bass was done on DB until Leo Fender's design became more widley accepted. There weren't many people denying the new Rock n' Roll, just because it was played with an Electric Bass instead. I don't hear people denying Jazz, if it's played with an EB. (Though I'm sure there are a few Jazz purist walking around who won't expect EB in Jazz) I wasn't putting down EB or DB, just asking a question and putting forth some thoughts. What are your opinions, comments, stories ect.?
