We've recently reconnected with Freeman James and thought you all might enjoy some links to his bass solos from the past. He has Medium and Long scale Series I basses.

Wow! Susan, thank you forsharing this!
I never saw that kind of finger style playing before!
He gets a lot different sounding effects from it.
Very cool,

Nice links! Had never heard of him, but I love the fact that he has total control of his bass while singing lead. Much easier said than done.
