Doug Wimbish made a big impression on me when he talked about having already done the P-bass through an Ampeg B-15 sound on sessions, and now he was moving on to something newer and more modern. However, that’s exactly what the recording I did this weekend called for, and so that’s what I did. The modern tones can wait for something else, like maybe February Album Writing Month. If any participants out there need some bass lines, let me know.
The Jazz bass is still in the shop for the new Nordstrand pickups, so I’m not sure how it sounds just yet. I found these samples on the Youtubes that come from a remarkably similar bass, so if it comes out sounding like this, I’ll be okay with it.
