    The first-ever pix of Brubaker's Custom-Made TMBG Brute bass - won by Nicki - will be posted in the next day or two. Meantime, the bass has undergone its final series of inspections and is being shipped today, so no doubt Nicki will be posting pix of her own in the near future!

    I found this guy's YouTube page - he offers some lessons in basslines. They're good viewing and can help to increase your riff library, but as I was watching him, some of his explanations were a little weird (not very user-friendly). Makes me really appreciate the way Roy explains his lessons and - most of all - the TMBG real time fretboard.

    I found some valuable information online from Sweetwater.com.

    Tonewoods Compared

    There are a number of factors that determine the tonal properties of wood. In addition, tonewoods respond differently in the hands of different makers. They can also take on different characteristics when used in different models of guitars - even those built by the same maker. Whether a particular wood sounds good or bad ultimately depends on who is doing the listening, so any attempt to sort out distinctions can only be subjective.
