Hey Doug, First let me say....I'm a big fan! I just "discovered" you about two months ago and I've really enjoyed your work. Now to the question.... I was watching some of your Pedulla demos (most noticeably the Pentabuzz...my Holy Grail bass) and I was really impressed by your left hand technique. However, most of the time when I see that clean of technique it's when I'm watching an upright player. Did you start out as an upright player? If so, do you ever still play upright? Also, what suggestions do you have for someone who wants to improve their left hand technique? I've really been trying to stick with one finger per fret as I move around the neck, but any pointers would be cool. And finally....an off topic question...I know you are a serious gearhead....so, what's your favorite ride right now? Just curious!
