I really struggle with tone, I’m sure I’m not alone !! I always go with a bit of guesswork when trying to get something I like. Does anyone know of any decent resources for a beginner to learn more about tone. I’ve recently joined a covers jam band, that do indie, classic rock and some pop stuff so it would be nice to get a good range.
One song that we do is Fortunate Son by CCR, but we do the Clutch version https://youtu.be/F1DJFNSideQ so I’m trying to get that gravelly, growly bass tone. Any suggestions (other than buy a Rickenbacker ??
Gearwise, I have an Ibanez GSR 200 and RedSub 60 Watt amp at home. At the practice space I have access to a much bigger Ashdown Head (i think 300w) and Warwick speaker cab, but I don’t have much more info on that. I have been looking at the Behringer V-Tone Bass Driver, to see if that would get me closer…( I don’t have a big budget at the moment)
Any advice would be great
