Music is indeed good for the soul, and your soul is grooving on that bass.

Hey @BigAl really sorry to hear about your father. As usual I always enjoy your videos; I really like the tone on this one. Perfectly suited for the song. I waited until the end and wasn’t disappointed :slight_smile:

Really sorry to hear about your Dad, I hope you were able to spend a bit of time with him before he passed. Great job on that. I’m playing with this one - It’s a lesson in perseverance playing that groove over and over and over. It gets fast at the end too and you did a great job adjusting to the timing. Awesome :metal:t4:

Stellar job on Crossfire. I’m a huge fan of the late SRV and you did him justice with this cover.

Thanks @John_E - been doing Ari Cap’s Cohort and that has helped a great deal. We are doing blues and Mixolydian this unit and this song just fits right into that scene! Cheers

One thing about these Forums is that I’m learning a lot more of these ‘Urban Dictionary’ entries!

They say it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks . . . and I believe they’re right :wink:

Cheers

I had no idea either @Jazzbass19 Joe

Going back to my first bass, Squire Jazz (although the only original parts are the neck, body and pickguard (with blackened out edge).
This is still one of my favorite basses.
Still a little VT Bass DI SVT used.
More bridge than neck, tone up and mids boosted a bit.

Sounds great @John_E! Very nice playing and timing. I really like the way your tone cuts through the mix on this one. I’m finding myself starting to dig the Jazz Bass sound more and more these days.

Hey all, here’s my SRV cover, fun little groove. I skipped over this one originally because I have some kind of irrational hatred for retuning. Was able to hack Floyd and Nirvana and do them in standard, but not this one. The Aerosmith song I covered a few weeks ago ended up being in Eb, and that pushed me to get over it. Maybe some VH and GNR covers coming soon while I’m down here :metal: Thanks for listening
