How funny, I was just thinking about getting a 5-string after hating them for years.
The bass player in my cover band that was in for years' husband played like a 13 string bass:

He could do some pretty cool stuff with it, but it was definitely for a very specific genre.
Yeah I used to be really into virtuosity, but I find that as I get older, I'm still impressed, but a lot less interested. I kinda thought that would go the other way around. I suspect it's probably something to do with my love of post-punk increasing steadily since high school.

He'd play during our set breaks which was always a nice change for audiences. He got semi viral doing a cover of the Super Mario Bros theme awhile back and would throw that in to always get a big reaction.


I was surprised that he didn't know how to read sheet music, so he couldn't really do anything beyond his instrumental originals. I think he played with bands too, but he couldn't do session work, so he was pretty limited.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

See, Jesus is using others as his instruments to warn you off disastrous choices.
I'm finding that in the course of writing this more trip-hoppy music, the need for some lower notes could be valuable. You particularly should like this since you don't like bassists to go above the 7th fret!
More of a pet peeve for me. :naughty:

Kory bait...

I can't believe I missed this!

Oh, was this near you?
Way too close. Why they needed two nights is beyond me. Do they have some kind of Phish/generic jam band crossover appeal?

They do, which always baffled me because they almost never do extended improv sections or anything (not that they don't have the skill but I think they like to keep the set tight). Like jam band cachet without actually jamming.

This is very good. Is it a custom job or can you buy them?

My guess is the former.

Funny, I have this open in another tab already for me to read when work gets slow. I hope he has some good advice for me.
