I wanted to start this thread as there's so much good music around, if you look for it, that isn't bass-related but is so worth recommending - and rather than starting something in the recordings, or bassists forum I thought it might be worth a shot sticking it over here... So my recommendation is for a brilliant solo acoustic guitarist called Eric Roche and in particular is wonderful album 'With These Hands' - it's all done on steel string and is simply produced with just a touch of reverb; but this guy is a genius with polyrhythms, strategically placed taps and slaps on the guitar body, so he creates a beautiful rolling, strumming effect. He runs the gamut of styles - he sounds a little Michael Hedges for sure - but he's so good he makes a great job of Stevie Wonder's Higher Ground and even re-works Van Halen's 'Jump' into a an amazing feel good groove - all on one acoustic guitar. Wrap your lug-holes round this: http://www.ericroche.com/listen.php I'm sure there are about a million other amazing bands, singers and solo artists out there that you'd like to tell the TB-world about so recommmend away. M Edit: great to see we're such an eclectic and open-minded bunch of music fans!
