Hi there this is my first thread , i have been playing for about 6 years and like all of us out there i am on a quest for great tone , i have purchased loads of great gear that i am extremely happy with , but i have realised the most important variable in the process of tone generation should be me . iam a great fan of players like jaco , richard bona and there tone is what i would like for myself . are there any players out there who are after that sort of tone , and woulen i do it thed you be willing to share your findings with regards to attack right hand position and left hand muting( for a righty). i know alot of players promote digging in hard to achieve that tone , i have been doing ,that but at my gig on new years eve i couldnt stand my tone anymore i think i may be hitting it to hard and thus destroying a sound rather than creating one . any imput would be greatly appreciated.
