    I recorded this with my D. Lakin bass (Joe Osborn model). Comments appreciated :)

    That looked like so much fun. And your playing, coming from the left, was so right:cool: Great job I enjoyed every second. Kinda felt like Cold Blood w Lydia Pense. I like watching lefties, I can mirror image their licks;)

    Nice work! You guys sound great. Side note: I had a chance to try a couple of Dan's basses early on, and really liked the tone of his Js. Yours sounds killer.

    Thanks Greg! I had actually kind of stumbled upon his basses by accident. I was originally trying to get a Lakland bass, but Lakland wouldn't even consider making me a lefty bass unless I bought the American series, which is pretty expensive. A friend of mine told me about Dan's basses and showed me the prototype...Haven't played another bass since!!

    Really great, loved the part at 4:00. Whats your writing process for a tune like that? Jam it out with the band or come up with the bass and then people write over it?

    Thank you! This was such a collaborative track. I came up with the melody and grooves during a rehearsal, and then I just let the vocalist write over it, and the trumpet player came up with some horn lines. I work these guys almost every weekend in Chicago, so it's really easy to write music with them!!

  16. I really like how you manage to flash a smile while playing a funky bassline. In fact, the whole band was smiling. Makes it look like you're having fun! No bitter-beer bass face for you guys.
