Played Blues at the Crossroads yesterday evening with the fabulous Jill Shutt. Had a great time even with nothing but a LOUD 60hz hum in the monitors.. ;)

Admittedly, we played more jazz than blues..

It rained most of the day, so the tech crew had their hands full getting things setup and running in a timely manner. No sound check, which explains the monitor situation, but I'm told it sounded great out front. C'est la vie.. :-)

And a link to a short preview feature done by a local TV station...

Nice pics, and nice video! I especially like how the video ends with an Alembic logo shot!

The TV station did a really nice job editing and assembling the footage.

Thanks, Dave.. Jill is great to work with. Lots of talent and excellent stage presence. She does a lot of theater, and could probably make it as a comedian if she didn't have such awesome pipes..

Hey I'd recognize that Genz Benz amp anywhere. I have a few of their pieces. How do you like it. Is that the 700 or the 1200?

It's not mine. It was the communal bass amp, and seemed plenty nice enough. I had it barely turned up with the EQ flat using what I think was the passive channel only, and that through an Ampeg 410. I've only heard good things about the Genz Benz stuff.

Very cool. I hardly touch the EQ. Maybe 5% here and there. Almost never with fresh strings. What do you typically play through?

I use an Ampeg B5R these days, and like it a lot. That's run through one or two Kustom 410H cabinets, which I also like a lot.

I've been using Fender flatwounds for awhile now as well, and am pleasantly surprised how easy it is to get good tone out of the whole setup.

I've played the B5R a few times. I have a late 80's SVT-II. I haven't played through any Kustom stuff. I'm curious about it.

Been playing the Genz-Benz stuff the last year. I have a Neo 2X12 cab. I was using their NeoPak 3.5 head, but I got the newer Shuttle head now. It's even lighter than the NeoPak and twice the power. . It's crazy. I'm thinking of getting the 1200 head that I think you were playing through in that photo. That's why I was curious to see what you thought of it. It's been years since I've been excited about amps until I started playing this stuff.

As for the flats.. I'm not too hip on them, but I'm always surprised when I find out who plays them. I have a feeling one day, I'm going to get hip to them. Thanks for taking the time to share the photos and rig info!

Actually, what turned me on to flats was the quest for Paul McCartney's tone. I've always been a shiny-sounding Rotosound user, so this is new territory for me. :-)

That's quite an extreme opposite from your Roto's. I used Roto's for years. When I got into 6-string I couldn't find a decent set of Roto's I liked as far as sizes. I went to D'Addario. I'm stocked D'Addario came out with the Pro Steels, They are actually a bit less expensive than the Roto's. I really dig McCartney's tone. It's still one of the most unorthodox and recognizable tones.

What did you use to film this? I haven't plugged this in to my stereo yet, but the sound seems pretty good on my laptop. Nice bass line in White Rabbit!

I'm running it through my stereo now, and the bass sounds really good!

This is a topic I know little about; but I figure it's useful information to know. Did you use the 60 or 30 FPS setting? How big was the file size to record 10 minutes at that setting? And I'm guessing you recorded the sound with some other device, and then somehow synced the sound to the video.

It's all the Canon camera. I set it for the low resolution (320x240) and 30 fps. For the audio, I had the wind gust filter on and left everything on auto. Just about as low-tech as it gets. I have recorded at high resolution and in PAL format, and while it looks better it kills a 4 gig card in about 15 minutes.

Here's at the high resolution. Please ignore the instrument I'm playing. :-)

Yes, it's a new band. My brother is the "official" bass player, but I've been filling in. It would seem that I'll be playing with them more than he will though. He's also the "official" bass player for Pilgrim Blues Band, but I gig more with them than he does also.

I guess I should update my profile. :-)

I'm going to be subbing in a horn band at Casino Aztar in Evansville, Indiana, December 26th and 27th. Feel free to stop in and be horrified at my reading skills if you're in the area..

My sister jumped the broom in a small ceremony with family and a few friends last Sunday. She decided she wanted the three of us brothers who play bass to provide the music, so little brother Pete through with a couple of arrangements whipped up on short notice...

I'm on the high part. Alembic, Fender flatwounds and some fingernails..

That was great!!

I'm just wondering what the audience was thinking. They didn't seem to be aware that this was a rare performance of Bassterpiece Theatre, including the even rarer dominant 7 ending as written on the long lost original version; and in a rare appearance by the Ford brothers!

The audience was mostly family, and *mostly* desensitized over the years to a room full of rumbling basses. :-) And we bassists were mostly desensitized to a room full of mostly relatives! :P

Recovering from my weekend gig with Two Tone Express at Casino Aztar today. We played mostly a mix of Motown, Brian Setzer and Tower of Power. My hands still hurt from "What is Hip?" It was the most work I've had to do at a gig, ever, I think, but well worth the trouble..









The horns were tight and the drummer was a groove machine.. Good times!

Hi, John!
Your vids and music are really nice, and you have such a wonderful sound with your SerieII, it's awesome!!! I guess this is the next bass I'll try to grab!
If you have a minut, I have a gig anouncement just below yours in the list ( OmpaBompa), with a link towards the band myspace.
Have a great day!

On Saturday, October 2nd, I'll be at McGilvery's Pub in Greenwood, IN, just south of Indy, for the Bridges of Indiana benefit motorcycle ride for autism with Dicky James and the Blue Flames. We play at 6 pm. If you're in the area, check it out..

Didn't ride. It was a Harley-ish "loud pipes save lives" crowd, which isn't my thing. It ended up raining as well, so turnout was small but they were very very enthusiastic about the music. Good times, even if cold and wet..

Playing this Friday (10 December 2010) at The Player's Pub in Bloomington, Indiana, with Dicky James and the Blue Flames. They've got excellent food and a nice selection of dark chewy beer on tap. If you're in the area, come out and feel some bass..

Thursday evening I went for a jam at a buddy's place. He's got a Pro-Tools setup in his basement, so we all plugged-in. The drummer and I have worked together before (though not in nearly a year) but the guitar player we'd never met. Good times though..

I have a set of cheap Fender flatwounds on the bass, but really like the tone..

It was definitely a good time and a time of great humility. Kade's specialty is Chet Atkins style fingerpicking, which I can't follow to save my life. Hopefully I'll have more opportunities to make progress in that direction. I don't think I'll be posting any of my lame attempts to keep up with that!

Except for this one, of course.. ;)

It's surprising how well those cheap flats sound on that instrument. Easy to fit into the mix as well.

And yes, Kade is exceptional. Hopefully we can put something together.

Thanks. We'd been together about 3 or 4 months, and this was our first real gig. Did you notice anything strange about my speaker cabinet? :-)

First gig?!! You guys must have practiced a lot. And no, I don't think I even noticed your rig; though I did notice you using some pedals on the floor.

We practiced a couple of times a week for 3 or 4 months. Most of the tunes are originals, so in many ways it was considerably easier to learn to parts since we were creating them ourselves. It was the first time I'd ever worked with the drummer, but we hit it off musically from the very beginning. Having that relationship is the magic that makes everything else possible, in my opinion. I love playing bass when Will's on drums.

The pedals are an original set of Taurus pedals, later replaced by Fatar pedals midi'd to a Vintage Keys module. I loves me some bass pedals. ;)

The speaker cabinet is an isobaric dual-18" I built out of the shell of an old Peavey 1810 cabinet. It sounded fantastic, but put out way too much deep deep bass for the rooms we played so I eventually decommissioned it and started using a 4-12 cabinet instead...

Good times..

John

Here's a clip from Saturday night. It's not the Alembic, but it's a pretty fair example of what I do when I'm having a good time. :-)

It's my first experiment with "BassCam" video.

Excuse the crappy audio.

Thanks!

I velcro'd a borrowed Flip camera to the headstock of the Lakland. I couldn't get a good angle on the Alembic, hence the Lakland instead. I think probably the GoPro Hero HD camera is the way to go, as it's designed to be mounted to helmets and such. The Flip has a tripod socket and that's it. At any rate, I look forward to playing around more with this sort of thing at another gig.

Sounds like you could use the gopro on your motorcycle helmet too. That would be a fool addition to those pictorial threads you post about your tours.

I concur. The audio is better though. *sigh* I guess at some point I just need to procure a real audio recorder and perhaps dangle a camera off one of the light trees.

It's fun to play with.

Playing this weekend for the first time with a new band, Cry On High, at Mulligan's in Terre Haute. We start at 8:00 pm and do two long sets of a mix of covers and originals. Will likely only play the Alembic on a couple of tunes, since the Dean 12-string seems to fit well with most of the material. Some of you Indy folks may know some of the other members. Jeff Wisbey, Tim Huber and Gary Ooley. If you're stuck in the 'haute, drop in..

Gig went reasonably well, and I've begun uploading clips to youtube.

Spent about 1/3 of the gig on 12-string, then recovered with some quality Alembic time...

Thanks, guys.

I parked a Flip camera over at the edge of the stage. Works reasonably well for what it is. It has a fairly narrow field-of-view, which makes placement a bit of a challenge.

We've "rehearsed" on and off for a couple of months (a couple of hours at a time on a handful of Saturday afternoons), and still didn't know the songs very well. We relied heavily on "gig magic" to get us through and for the most part, it did.

After playing the 12 for several songs, the Alembic felt like a toothpick (thankfully) in comparison. I almost put roundwounds on it before the gig, but the sound guy said he liked flats on a bass so I left it be. Might do rounds at some point though.

I know the feeling, John; when I married my wife I had a fu manchu moustache. One day her mother walked in the door & exclaimed "You cut the ends off your moustache!" My wife looked shocked - "When did you do that?" "About 2 weeks ago" I answered.
but to get back to the thread, there's something wrong with your gig pictures. I've been watching recent posts by others closely, & I think you're supposed to have a cute girl on stage, aren't you?

I have been fortunate to only gig with excellent drummers these last several years, which frees things up considerably. Lots of room to experiment.

Getting ready for another bike/Jeep adventure in a couple of weeks. I wish my wife were able to join me, but she has to work.

I may just be the luckiest guy on Earth. At least sometimes when I look at my family and friends it sure feels like it.

Thanks Mike! These basses make it all so much easier to just let go and do it to it. It's a fun band. It would be nice to gig with them more regularly, but a sub is a sub is a sub so whatcha gonna do?

Tracy says Keavin (#12) and I have the same irreverent approach to the instrument, which I take as an extreme compliment. I think he connects the dots a lot better and more often than I do!

I'd love to see some bass-cam from a dadabass gig.

We need another Chicago soiree...

Hi again John.
No bass cam from me, I still don't own a camera. Buit I am in process of gathering multiple camera angles from the Rewind 2011 show and will have some stuff on YouTube this fall There's some single cam videos up from various attendees and fans. Here's the link to videos by Rock The Hub . I'm playing with Andy Wilberding, Lavendar Hill, Gayle Grether, Hapton Road, and with Janet Lieb and Yesterday's Children (5 of the 9 acts I was bassist for).

Gigged again with Dicky and company last night. Played the Alembic all night. It really is amazing how much better the sound is from that bass, and how much more responsive it is than anything else I've played. Rounds, flats, whatever, it's just one friggin' phenomenal instrument.

I had the opportunity to gig at a benefit festival over the weekend. 18 bands in three adjacent venues. Several people commended me on my tone, saying I had the only bass that cut through the mix and that it sounded incredible. Thank you Alembic!

A couple of us have managed to get a jazz jam thing going at one of the locals clubs in the couple of hours before they get their open mic night started. There are moments of brilliance and moments of musical carnage but it's been a very good learning environment for me.

Here's a clip from Monday's jam with me on that other bass, recorded with a new-to-me-so-I-haven't-figured-out-how-to-use-it-yet Zoom H4N recorder.

The picture is of the other bassist who's been showing up, Eric Schatz, with that bass of mine..

Okay, I'm about to the point of pulling the glorious Alembic out again, to change it up and thinking maybe now I'll have a fresh approach to it after spending some time with the fretless Lakland. This is from last night's gig, Zoom next to the bass amp so I could get a good read on my intonation..

http://soundcloud.com/scarysharkface/hard-rain-fretless-bass-dicky

Funny thing is, I recently installed a Mike Pope Flex Core preamp in my other Lakland 5 but have yet to pick it up at a gig either. I'm having THAT MUCH FUN with the fretless!

Tried something new at the latest Monday night jam. Drums,keys, two guitars and, ahem, two basses. It works better than one would expect. I'm playing the fretless..

http://soundcloud.com/scarysharkface/mercy-mercy-mercy-verve-2012

Recorded with the Zoom H4n pointed at the ceiling, direct line from my amp and a pzm on the floor in front of the keyboard amp. Very minimal editing and adjustment with Audacity (on Ubuntu Linux) and voila..

Our weekly Monday night jazz jam has degenerated into this:

I'm loving it.

John

It's a trio, by the way, Al Doti on drums, Tim Doyle on guitar and me on bass..

Thanks! Here's some more dinking around, this with the Alembic..

Plenty of clams and certainly not the most musical performance on my part, but I think it's neat to be able to capture the general flavor of things so easily with the little Zoom H4n..

There really is nothing that sounds even close to the Alembic..

Yeah, Mike, there are a few of them around here. I feel I'm pretty lucky in that regard!

Clip from Friday night's gig with Dicky James. This one grooves along nicely.

Thanks guys!

On the bass, neck pickup only, mostly flat. On the amp, "drive" is all the way up and "treble" is down a bit. I'm trying to channel an old Precision through not nearly enough amp, and those settings seem to work. ;)

Here's a fun one.

And by "not nearly enough amp" I mean that I've got plenty of amp, but want that "destroying the porta-flex" tone.

A standard from our local weekly jazz jam:

I'm struggling with a friend's MM Jazz Bass on this. It's always nice to be reminded why people nearly always get excited when they get to play the Alembic at these things. Anyway, at least I'm still getting to play regularly.

Just listened to the first one; very cool! My favorite part was the transition at 2:35.

Improv tune from last night's gig with my trio/quartet Jazz Beard. This isn't the Alembic, but instead is the Lakland with the Mike Pope preamp. Recorded with a Zoom H4n from across the stage. I've got too many nice basses.
