This may be blasphemy but: what do you guys think of bass done by means other than the bass guitar. For example, I've been a big fan of hammond b-3 organ jazz for years and many artists play the bass parts using the left hand and/or foot pedals ( ex: joey defrancesco, larry goldings etc.) I've also been very impressed w/ the funky lines played on tuba by the dirty dozen brass band on the Bonnaroo dvd. Some artists in the 70's and 80's (Rush?) augmented bass parts w/ foot pedalboards. What do you think?
