That would, of course, be the G spot.

2006-04-03T01:19:47+00:00 <![CDATA[RE: upright]]> Thanks for the input. I went ahead and made small grooves at the 3,5,7 fret positions because where I usually play it is so dark on stage, I cant see the majic marker dots I put on the edge of the finger board.
Also I thought it kinda looked lame to be looking at the bass neck all the time, instead of the crowd. I can feel the grooves fine and being as how this my first upright and a real cheap Chinese Bass I don't mind the dings. I'm looking for a better bass currently even though the CCB sounds great. The word in the Bass forums is that the CCBs self destruct after about a year of hard playing.
I have found that a hybred set of strings works best for my sound.
I use a steel E and A and a nylon D & G. Broke down and got a Behringer 1200 tilt back combo amp and use a big muff effects pedal.

I'm sure the real bass players look at my technique and laugh but my bass guitar technique was never that hot either, still I never thought that I would become so enchanted with the Upright as I have.
I also have fallen in love with the sound of my brass bodied resonator slide guitar.

2005-10-27T18:30:34+00:00 <![CDATA[RE: upright]]> I have switched strings to some low tension nylon rockabilly units and the playability difference is amazing. These strings designed for pizz and not arco do lend themselves to a more percussive attack.
I'll never be Lee Rocker but with the added confidence I'm beginning to feel like a bass player and am beginning not even miss the Fender Jazz. The stripped down lines sound more musical now that I have adjusted my whole concept of the bass. Before, I have to admit that I was just another guitar player with four, thicker strings. Somehow feeling the vibration from the doghouse in your crotch changes a guitar player into a bass player. Yes there is a certain amount of erotica involved that I never got from a bass guitar.

I'm a fan, I always appreciate a good upright player, nothing else can substitute.
