    I've been on a Anthony Jackson and Chaka Khan kick the last two days, and I ran across this clip. This Greg F is a TB guy, isn't he? Whoever he is, I love his playing, and his Sadowsky sounds phenomenal! That tone is so thick, deep, and round! I love it!

    Needless to say, Greg F's playing makes that Sadowsky come to life.:)

    You are just as good as him Dr., minus the sweet Sadowsky. It's just a groove thang, and I know you feel it like him! Thanks for sharing the chops practice videos.

    How does he have that thing tuned? He's def going below E on that tune.

    I don't know about all of the strings, but I believe that E string is tuned to C. It could be tuned C F Bb Eb.
     
  6. Really nice stuff there. Nice gooey tone, too. Makes me wanna take it all down a step.

    That bass has some sick tone for sure! This is pretty straightforward playing, but the tone is ridiculous!

    From the second video:

    "My bass is tuned a half-step down (Eb/Ab/Db/Gb)"

    Nice gooey tone; I'd rather listen to that than ear-assaulting slap any day of the week!

    Great groove/timing and rock solid skills. I almost spilled my coffee shaking my butt.

    I pine to play in a band that embraces this syle of music. It forces you to bring your A game, even if your A game is really a C-.
