    i like all of the live tracks because you can listen to the song, then listen to the live track and you will be wondering if the two are the same song. mainly because of the improvisation from John.

    that song might as well have been the bass solo live rather than 5:15. i love the entire Who catalog.

    Maby i should start going like John did.. instead of full on all the time, i calm it down a little on recordings, and go full out on parts where i can live :p

    yeah, right now im trying to get to a semi-repeatable version of my Mini-Operreta in my head so that i can record it. if i were to join a band and record a record with them right now, i would just go in, and play whatever my hands think i should play. i will definetly be posting clips on my website when i have the time and the whole thing is recorded.

    nah, im satisfied with the one i have now, and as the bridge is routed into the the body, i may have to rout extra, and i dont want that.

    i dont modify my basses at all. and i think that your bass is fine the way it is. you just lose resale value by messing with stuff on your bass.

    i have yet to hear everything he ever played, but i am on my way. someone once said that only the musicians noticed John. which is quite true.

    the Alembic bridge mounts to a large block of brass that is inlaid into body under the bridge. the block is screwed to the body and the bridge mounts to the brass block. they call it a sustain block.

    its an Alembic thing. i think its because the basses are really heavy they need a block to balance them out. the block just happens to increase sustain most likely.
