Due to the success of my thread on Jimi Hendrix's bass playing, I decided to start a new thread, singing the praises of yet another musician who often played bass, but isn't particularly known for it. Tom Schulz of Boston. From what I understand, (even though he just plays lead electric guitar and some keyboards live) he does everthing except sing and play drums in the studio. As a bass player, I can tell that he definately took the time to listen to a lot of great bassists to figure out how we think, and how we go about writing a line. And it sounds to me that he did an equally good job, examining keyboard stylings, even though I'm not a keyboardist, and really couldn't knit pick for very long about that. The equality with which he treats all the instruments probably stims from the fact that he learned them all at approximately the same time. From what I've read, he's real brainy with a masters in engineering or something similar to that from MIT, and was basically just fasinated by the logic and organization of music, (like many mathmatically inclined individuals are), and got into it as a hobby. Anyway, his formidable command of all these instruments allowed him to create some truly "orchestral" sounding textures in the studio, with many Boston songs having layered lead and rhythm electric guitar, six string acoustic guitar, 12-string acoustic guitar, bass, Hammond organ, and Clavinet tracks. I don't know about ya'll, but this kind of musicianship makes me want to practise more. Here's this guy that plays bass probably as well as I do, but he's not trying hard at all. See ya'll later.
