This is the way I was for a long time in the past, one bass, one amp. I think I like being back where I started from. I had the original "Electric Lady", the EKO, and a 2X12 Kent Combo, that was no where as fine as my Markbass is. Is more simple for me. This is what I have, and that's it.

I'm with you on the One Bass, One Amp thing. Granted between where I live now and my folks place in Maine I have 4 basses and 3 amps. I still just play one bass and use just one amp.

Like I said, it's how I started out way back when. Nice to be back.

There's almost an intimacy about it. Isn't there.

Somewhat. It's a comfort type of feeling, going back to when I was 16-17 years old, and just stating out on the bass. The 60's.

It's funny I've been playing a 6 since 2002 and still am getting into learning and applying new stuff. It is kind of that same teenager feeling of learning and exploring. I love it.

My big thing right now is looping chords and playing against it. Oteil Burbridge (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Allman Brothers Band, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Dead and Company) is a bass chord master and one of my favorites. Also mixing it with some of the "Traditional" types of stuff like adding a third note to those Chuck Rainey style double stop lines.

It's also nice to be able to play stuff like "What's goin on" by Marvin Gaye without having to shift up to hit that C#.

Coincidentally, this is from my favorite Dead period (mid 70's).

I saw him playing with the Allman Brothers live, a couple of years before they called it quits the last time. I can't remember the exact year, but I know they split in 2014, so not too long from then.

I've seen him play back in 2001 with Govt Mule and a few years later with his own band.

If you get a chance check out the live album by "Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit" and "Croakin' at Toads" by Frogwings.
