    I hope the over 50 crowd here still appreciates the days of progressive blues rock.

    I have attached a clip, that to me captures that strong bass driven foundation of this genre.



    If you can stry away from what Leslie is doing this is the type of simplistic blues rock bass we use to love, and the guy can sing. Can anyone identify the bass he is using?

    Anyway I hope there will some constructive comment from any Power Trio fans.

    I'm 18 and i truly appreciate the days of progressive rock and blues :) Very good music, and leslie west was/is a great guitarist!

    As for the bass, probably something japanese, much like most other p style copies of that era, though i can't come up with anything specific

    I know, I thought it was a Fender until I took a closer look at the head stock.

    Looks like a Schector Diamond J to me, but I could be wrong.

    Great classic song by a great artist, btw.

    Thanks bluewine.

    I had a great oportunity to live in that era, listening to:

    SMAK

    NOTICE Acoustic 408 cab!

    more

    That guitar player dedicated THIS song to first guitar - Aria Diamond

    You might remember this Macedonian song from the movie "300".

    I have a plenty of examples for interested...
