...but I'd like to post in praise of bass guitar in general. My current band is a recording project and the bassist seems to have given up on being enthusiastic. He has good reasons to be that way, but it's not helping move anything along. So I plugged my favorite P-Bass in yesterday to lay a track or two down. There's just nothing like it. All of the power and whomp that the average folk attribute to rock guitar is right there in a beautiful, thumping bass. If I could find a band looking for a bassist, I'd be pretty happy!
