i started playing guitar in the late 80s and love that classic rock sound and hair band g&r montly crew kinda stuff. after picking up a bass a few monthes ago and falling in love with it it has opend me up to a whole new style of music that for whatever reason i was closed minded about in mu younger days. james jamerson and that awsome detroit motown sound,james brown, the meters and so much more. i love that oldschool flatwound tone. just saying, open your mind to something new"or old in my case" and you just might love what you hear.
