I will just see how many of you will head down this road. Slide BASS sounds absolutely CRAZY - YouTube
I’m having a two-string slide bass ala Mark Sandman from Morphine, built by Dan at Guns and Guitars thanks to @MC-Canadastan (I think, damn you!)
this is the way.
You’re welcome @John_E . I always enjoy spending your money
TBH, though, your ThomanBird will now be the foundation of another beautiful thing, so that’s a plus.
This is the way.
Ya I just have to figure out what…
Speaking of slides on bass, just to point out some variations on the typical slides, if anyone is interested:
I came across this SlideWinder Ring some time ago (seems too expensive). The creator’s videos (1) and (2) using it on a bass do not impress me, but that might be due to his level of proficiency on the bass (or my ears!).
With either of the first two slide rings, they apparently don’t interfere with using your fingers to fret normally.
This is incredible.
Morphine is in my top 5 bands of all time list.
I love everything about them - not least, the bass tone and bass playing.
Thanks for sharing this!
@John_E That bass is for you?!
No, but one just like it is in about 2 months!
@John_E Did you ever get your Morphine bass?
Still waiting for it….
