    I met Quintin about 12 yrs ago when his band was palying at this bar called the Gallery in st.pete.fl and I ask him why did he use this impressive but yet unorthodox technique and what he said was that he was not as fatiqued as with having to play the bass the conventional way as we know it.Now with that being there were a couple of times that he would use the conventional way whenever he had to play a song that he had to slap on(BTW,if I'm not mistaken that looks like the same Alembic bass that he had when I first met him-A real down -to-earth person)Make no mistake.THE MAN CAN PLAY HIS ASS OFF !:bassist:

    I had a chance to hang with QB at the summer & winter NAMM. He's a great guy & an amazing player. By the way, he plays equally well with either technique.

  10. I tried to play like that. I think with som practice it could be done, but it is definately different. When I did it on my Jazz 5 the knobs got in the way a bit, but it was fun.
