    This is going back about 4 years, when my band went into the big local radio station down here in South FL, 94.9 Zeta's Battle of the Bands.. And We did really well, placed 2nd. Won a bunch of gift certificates to Sam Ash and like $100 for each band member. But what one of the judges wrote for me, 'Toast', who was the judge for bass players was "Bass had a unique "icey" sound, and wrote some other good stuff..

    Now what the hell did he mean by ICEY?
     
  2. When I think of icey, I think crisp and hard. Either you're quick with a pick or you cut through the mix well.
     
  3. What was the name of your band?

    That makes sense, but I never played with a pick, still wont. But I can see my role in the mix standing out, I did play a Warwick Corvette Proline at the time that was MEEEAN! Thanks for the input..

    Borderline.. we've since dispanded, we had a CD out and a pretty good fan base. Played at The Broward Theater for the Perfoming Arts.. and a few kick ass shows at Hard Rock Cafe at the Sawgrass Mall. :bassist:
