How not to solo, Part I

Abstract:
Taking the bass into territory that used to be reserved for guitarists and other treble instruments is admirable, but you have to have a strategy if the results are to be anything other than monotony and pain for your audience.

The Importance of a Good Setup

Abstract:
I want to talk briefly about bass guitar setup. Many of us think we have a handle on setup issues, I know I did, but this isn't always the case. Let me tell you what happened to me and how it has affected my playing then judge for yourself how important proper setup is.

Some Muting Techniques

Abstract:
Like everyone else I have to really think about muting because it's really kind of automatic. To better understand what I do when muting I have tried to list every muting technique I use and why, along with any warnings I can think of for each.
