    From the Fender Website:

    "Jumpering" a '59 Bassman®

    Normally, you'd play through the venerable '59 Bassman either by plugging into one of its two "normal" channel inputs or one of its two “bright” channel inputs, and then off you go. One or the other.

    There is yet another option, though, for which there are no extra inputs or switches or anything, that lets you use both channel types together. It involves a simple technique called "jumpering" in which you can combine the '59 Bassman’s normal and bright channels and blend them to taste.

    Eastwood Introduces the new Stormbird Bass. The original non-reverse model was short lived in a 6-string model, and the Bass was extremely hard to find in the 1960's. This tribute re-issue is a full scale 34" monster and the dual pickups can range from deep P bottom to nasally Ricky 4001 bite. Yes, you could spend thousands on the original, but why not stick your toe in the pool here first?

    Dee Murray (3 April 1946 - 15 January 1992) was an English bassist, best known as a member of Elton John's original rock band.


    Murray was born David Murray Oates in Southgate, London in 1946. Before joining Elton John as his touring sidemen, Murray and drummer Nigel Olsson were members of the Spencer Davis Group in 1968-1970.

    Hint - long ago and far, far away, he was with a group called Wings. (Rumor has it there was another group before that. Something to do with insects...)

    Sir Paul McCartney

    Anyway, happy 70th birthday James Paul McCartney! And thanks for writing the music of our lives.

    In Lesson 6 of TMBG, Roy offers up a session of great Blues shuffling, and the practice song that goes with it ("Shufflin' Along") is one of my faves to play, TMBG band or no band. It's just a jumping little number that was fun to learn. Play it slow and grinding, or fast and punchy, but play it with that Blues attitude!

    When we advertise TMBG has "the most comprehensive, effective, and entertaining program of self-paced bass instruction on the planet," we're not blowin' smoke. TMBG has been out for two years now, and the first (that we know of) to finish all 20 lessons is Rev. Russell Shores. (We know a number of others are hot on his heels!) Granted, the Reverend has been playing professionally for a while, but he credits Roy and TMBG with helping him solidify his skills and his understanding of music. So, how's he doing? Hear for yourself!


    My opinion? Well done Rev! You're an encouragement to us all!
