    Hi mate

    Nice little groove. My only comment would be to try and keep the second after the popped note silent, sometimes it sounds a tad messy in the section which I guess you want to sound like a silent section, if you get what I mean. Otherwise I like tho lo-fi charm of it. Good greasy funk. Sounds like a Jazz bass to me?

    Thanks Chris h!

    I will admit the quality isn't great, which is deliberate. There's another 20 demo sessions of the sort of thing - all recorded live and rushed to get it on disk. I'm waiting to hear back, to see if they want to continue on with the project. Also, I was using Fender P Bass. Cheers

    The Pizzacato song sounds like you're playing Billy Sheehan's bass. Crazy.

    Cool Groove for "Funk Demo".

    Just a good old Fender P Bass. I've owned many instruments over the years, Ibanez and Yamaha (Billy Sheehan and TRB Models), but I am absolutely settled on the Fender P Bass. I hope to modify it soon to get a cleaner studio tone. I also do truely believe that alot of a bass guitar's tone comes from the hands and fingers. I used stainless steel strings on the Pizzicato recording as well.

    Thanks Eric!
