I always have to watch videos of Fri/Sat night TV because of gigs, so I know this is a little late. But I saw a tape of J. Beck on Friday's "Tonight Show" and couldn't figure out who the bassist was. Anyone know??? He was black and had a real "pretty" fingerstyle, (like MINE! ), and a very compressed sound with very fast note decay, like Mona w/Sammy Hagar. His damping technique must be awesome. Hard to tell from the broadcast. He was playing a white Jazz. OH, Beck was cool, too. NO picks!
