Pauldo,
Your Bass is one uniquely beautiful Bass. I have listened to some of your posts on Soundcloud you play worthy of her looks.
Rock On Gentlemaní

I really dig the solo bass track the best!
That Distillate sounds great! But of course it's really the player that makes it happen! I really need to get into "The Game" and start recording my stuff.
What did you use to record yourself Pauldo?

Pauldo,
The Kudos were easy you earned them. I was in the Studio Biz for a long time so I guess I just want play now for fun!! so No I do not have a Sound Cloud Page. Who knows maybe when I feel it again I'll dabble again. My Baby has a Coco Bolo Top, Mahogony base,Maple / Purpleheart neck. 32" Standard Distillate specs. But the grains on the Coco Bolo are stunning to say the least. Sometimes nature throws us some gems that are quite eye catching. Case in point that Zebra Wood Baby of yours!
Charles I hope you hook up to the Sound Cloud love to here your Lovely lady as well.
It's all good!!!!
Pete

Thanks! :-D
I recorded through a Zoom H4n into Cubase LE5 on my desktop.
Added reverb or some 'spacial' effect post recording - don't remember what it was. Did the old tone knob twisties at the end for the wah-wah effect.

Most of the song is played on the bridge pickup except for approximatly between 4:00 and 5:00 which is on the neck pickup.

I don't have a Distillate unfortunately - though I loved playing Wolf's single-pickup one at one of the Alembic Gatherings.

I did want to post another address for the Alembic Player's group: http://soundcloud.com/groups/alembic-players - please, if anyone has any recordings, post away!
