    Have you read Stanton Lawrence's latest product review? Here's an excerpt:

    "The Fender Fatfinger Bass Sustain Enhancer "Instantly add more sustain and awe-inspiring tone to your instrument with the Fender Fatfinger. By clamping the Fatfinger on the headstock of you instrument it will enhance the overall tone and note-to-note response of any electric or acoustic guitar or bass", at least thatís what the packaging claims. But does it actually work? I picked one up recently to find out.

    Bassplayer.com features a tutorial on Jack Bruce's British Blues. Here's an excerpt:

    "WHILE EXAMINING THE WORK OF GREAT BLUES BASSISTS of the past, letís not forget our brethren from across the pond, in particular, the contributions of British blues players. The influence of American blues on the U.K. music scene was pivotal in the development of rock & roll; virtually every famous British rock band got its start by copping tunes by Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon, as well as the first wave of American rockers such as Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley."

    We often mention that members of the TMBG Band are top-flite Nashville studio musicians. To prove the point, here's an excerpt from a track called Deep Blue Grass from keyboardist Tim McDonald's album Tim McDonald II. On stand-up (double) bass? Roy Vogt, for those of you who've been asking to hear him 'slap the heavyweight'.

    There have been a few posts lately concerning picking versus finger-style. Lucky us! BestBassGear.com has just posted an article on the art of picking! Timely to our discussion.

    Here's an excerpt:

    "Yeah, I know, there are a whole crop of bass players out there who are very anti-pick (or plectrum, if you prefer). If youíre one of those, donít do one of those ďreal bass players donít use picksĒ things. Some players use picks and itís not a sin to do so."
