    Same thing Geddy's been saying for a while. His tone sounds 'ratty' by itself, but fits in the mix nicely.

    People like Ampeg for a reason. A super clean tone doesn't help much to make a son sound good.

  6. I had to learn that one the hard way..For years I would have the cleanest signal possible and I could never figure out why I would get lost in the mix or have people telling me to turn down. I got a Sansamp and ever since I have not had any problems with Soundmen ETC
  7. Very cool, I like it.
  8. I pretty much use a bit of fuzz at all times.
  9. I also larned the hard way. For years I was going for a clean bassy sound - the kind that sounds great and full on its own. It was never ever clear in the mix though. When I realized the secret of boosting the mids and adding some distortion to my tone it was a whole new wolrd opening up for me. I play death metal in a band that currently has 3 guitarists and I still cut through without any problem at all.

    A good clean tone has made countless songs sound great. There is no one size fits all.

    The fuzz is helped out a lot by the roundwound strings buzzing on the fretless board. What a great example of fretless playing in hard rock. Notice how clean the harmonics ring out. Jeff is an awesome musician and someone I need to study more.
  12. cool - love hearing stuff like this.

    is it my understanding this isn't the solo'd track? but somehow "pulled" from the recording? I don't even think that's possible, and certainly not going to be accurate . . .
  13. It was pulled from the Rock Band video game.
  14. so are they original tracks? sorry, been under a rock - don't know much about video games . . .

    they almost always use the original master tracks, which they acquire directly from the bands (or the band's label).

    This is great! that guys got so much other stuff when you click through, not just bass.
    Lots of beatles, i guess that would be everything from the Beatles Rock band game then haha
  17. whoa - thats kinda cool! I stay away from video games for a reason . . . I have enough expensive habits!! Damn :ninja::bag:

    I have noticed with my band that I blend in a lot better with a bit of overdrive and some crunch!
