    Nice bass work by Paul Spencer Denman from the band Sade (also the name of the lead singer)

  2. I've got that on DVD... great stuff. I've been a fan since I first heard the tune on the radio when she first hit the scene!

    That is a great bass tune from them... but I've always preferred this groove

    I've watched that DVD hundreds of times but always wondered what that bass with the F holes is he plays towards the end of the show. Anyone know what kind of bass this is?

    I have been VERY, VERY forunate to have spent "time" with the members of Sade when they are in LA. Paul does live and call LA home, yet also has a home in London. The bass Paul uses as of late is a Gretsch bass. I am not sure the strings, i would assume Rotosounds cause he uses them in his Stingrays. Anything that guy plays....well the proof speaks for itself ......"awesome" !!!!
