(Pacman, Yvon - I'm putting this here because it's more about specific Jazz bass playing techniques rather than J bass hardware itself. H/D) I recently picked up an AmStd Jazz, and I'm noticing it's an incredibly versatile instrument. I can create more different tones with simple pickup gain and hand placement changes than I ever would have thought possible! I've heard of a couple of J bass tricks - such as maxing the neck p/u and rolling off the bridge p/u a bit to get a great "growl" (still looking for it, though), and soloing the neck p/u for more of a P sound. Can anyone suggest some other "old hand" J bass technique tricks?
