Welcome! Nice to have you. :wave::thu:

 

What kind of music do you like to play?

Pro or amateur (or both!)?

What kind of musical training do you have?

How often do you gig? With how many different groups/performers?

 

Just trying to open you up a little so we know where you're comin' from! ;):)

 

Peace.

I haven't played professionally in a while...used to be in a rock/r&b band that played around Atlanta. I am an old school guy and still listen to a lot of 70's R&b...I started playing fretless about 15 years ago and have leaned in that direction since then. My influences are vast..I cut my teeth on Loius Johnson and Verdine White...This is a pic of my guitars... http://hometown.aol.com/daionxx/myhomepage/all2.jpg?mtbrand=AOL_US

What's the bass between the Fender and the Musicman?

 

I suppose we should start grilling you..

 

Jaco or Pino Palladino?

Bootsy or Flea?

Average White Band or the J.B.'s?

Marcus Miller or Victor Wooten?

 

Or all of the above? ;)

Sorry about that...The lineup is as follows:

1982 Daion Power Mark XX

1977 Fender P...a few mods

2002 Schector Stiletto Studio Fretless

1980 Music Man StingRay Defretted

 

...and for edification

 

Jaco....just watched Joni Mitchell Shadows and Light.Jaco is the man (I sound nothing like him).

 

Bootsy...I love Flea but grew up with P Funk. George Clinton is my hero.

 

JB's....Once again, I love AWB but have a close connection with the Godfather. I grew up in Augusta and had the privilege of working with Mr. Brown. He produced my first recording project and I jammed with him a few times.

 

Marcus...Victor is incredible but I lean more towards Marcus..

I was 19 years old and wet behind the ears. He demanded a lot of respect. We were to call him Mr. Brown only. His band was made up of local players. I knew a few of them. The best thing about the whole experience was learning about his approach to songwriting and tracking. Everything was very loose as you can imagine. But he made me see the value of a grooving performance over a "perfect" performance...great memories.

Take note of the difference in how Dolomite presented himself in his initial post, compared to 4_sTrInG_BaNdItO.

I haven't gone fretless on the electric, but once upon a time, I did play the ol' doghouse. :)

I would love to post some music as soon as my lazy ass gets a host. Resently I've been involved in a project where the rules are out the window...Not that it's very strange but any genre is welcome..I love some thrashing like old Fishbone. Still one of my favs. I have a fairly open ear. Anything that grooves.

Welcome to the LDL Dolomite! Quite a stable you have there! I must confess, that Daion caused me to have a lustful moment! :D Anyway, this is the best bass forum on the web, so enjoy!
