As I've posted a couple of times, I visited Bass emporium last weekend. I spent a couple hours playing basses that quality wise, were lightyears ahead of what I am used to playing. This is when the strange part starts. On Monday when I picked of my faithful Yamaha BBG5S, It sounded like a totally different instrument. Much more alive, with a crispness and punch to the attack like I didn't think was possible. That was just the beginning. Tonight at my weekly praise and worship band practice, I was playing things better and laying down a better groove than ever before in my life. As some of you know, I've only played for abut 18 months, so my chops are still developing every month. The question is, has anybody ever played a great bass, and that changed their approach when they got back on a less quality bass? I can't figure it out, not that I'm complaining.
