  3. Rickenbackers were originally designed to be uncomfortable chairs.

    “Straight eighth notes on the root are the most tasteful style of bass line”

    “You’re not a real jazz bassist unless you include tons of upper structures”

    "What's the weight of your sunburst Precision that you play slap bass on flatwound strings through a Class D amp and lightweight cabinet?"
  7. This is what I was looking for. Something that wraps it all up together. Another possibility: "I can only hear tonewood if I don't play above the 5th fret, use a high quality cable, true bypass pedals, and play through a 4x10 stacked on a 1x15".

    Somehow I think even a Trump v Biden debate on Talkbass would eventually devolve into hairsplitting about the exact percentages of nickel vs stainless alloys and their affect on tone but none of that matters because you should be practicing with a metronome.
