  • Favorite bass tone

    Just beastly vintage low and low mids. With some pick detail on top. Listen with headphones. And don't miss the funk section at 6:30.

    I think in the International System of Units (SI) a "WAT" is defined as a derived unit of 1 Clint besmirchment per hour

    and WAAAT is defined as a derived unit of 1 Clint kilojoule of described Nirvana transgression per post.

        Besides this being an absolute beast of a song to play, the bass is massive here.

            John Wetton was amazing. I loved his P bass through a HiWatt tone.

              This is one of my favorite bass players and bands. P-bass with Rotosounds through some kind of Yamaha amp, apparently.

                I love the way the bass on this song alternates between a phasey delay and completely dry. The contrast makes both sections pop more.

                  Yes, John Wetton, who never got enough credit for his absolutely crushing bass tone. That's the way a great P-Bass should sound to me.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.
