Bass Player: March 2005

73 P Bass

I just got it. Looks like a great issue on first scan.

I was surprised and pleased to see a face I recognize from the forum: Jason Atkins, aka. Gospel5theZealot! I was expecting BGO, but maybe next time.

I was disappointed with the siliconed in Ampeg flyer, that on removal ripped the page it was glued to (I HATE those things; they've been in bike magazines for ages now)! But other than that the content looks great.

Got mine last week. Just started reading it. Not sure how I feel about the aesthetics of the layout.


Definitely cool to see a tech column from Dan Erlewine (although I haven't read it yet).


Great to see Monsieur Atkins representing the LDL!


The article on James Brown's bassists looks promising.






Fanboy? Why, yes! Nordstrand Pickups and Guitars.

Messiaen knew how to parlay the funk.

I read it. I need to review and give a formal review. So far I agree that the Ampeg catalog was poorly placed (in the middle of the James Brown article), I like what they've added, and I like the aesthetics. I liked the article on JB's bassists. But I still want to crawl through it like a good analyst. Herrera made me promise to do this before he'd send me that "bass terms" article.


Of course having Gospel5theBigHeaded ( ;) )in there is great, and hope to see BGO (and more of you folks) soon.



(actually, Mr. Herrera only asked for our opinions )

Just got mine last night. I believe I like the new look and am looking forward to reading. I was happy to see the review of the Variax bass. Between the worship team at church and the friends I gig with, I need to be able to go from 60's rock/pop to modern rock and R&B to some jazz and country. Sometimes I need to make big changes very quickly. That Variax bass looks promissing to me. If only it was a five string...
