    @hoglundmatt First off, playing with a pick isn’t “wrong”. It’s a matter of style. As for it being “too simple”, it doesn’t have to be complex to be good. Being able to simplify something is the sign of a true master.

    You should read Mitch Mitchel’s book on his years as drummer for Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix and Mitchel once jammed with Carol Kaye. Mitchel describes the experience of playing with Ms Kaye as “frightening”. Yes, she was/is THAT good!

    Thank God for Carol Kaye…the ultimate Electric Bass Player. She has a great website. Who hasnt’ she played for and with? She answers any and all questions…and usually in minutes. Carol Kaye doesn’t just play the electric bass, she IS the electric bass! A great player…and a kind, considerate teacher and person. Thanks for the music.

    @dowsemeister LOL! …
    @dowsemeister LOL! I know the feeling. Being able to copy many styles is useful as you’re very versitile. In fairness, those greats (Jamerson, Kaye, Babbit, Clark, etc.) were “inventing” things when Rock was young and there was alot of uncharted territory. I think it’s MUCH harder to be innovative and fresh now because someone will almost always be able to point to someone earlier and say “they did that already”. At least bass is being more understood and appreciated now. Stay low

    @totallyfrozen Hey …
    @totallyfrozen Hey thanks for the discussion. You’ve made me reflect on my own bass playing career. I was a good copier of styles which was good in the studio but never innovative. My wife says I’m probably jealous because Carol Kaye became famous and I didn’t. LOL
    Cheers

    @dowsemeister Well, …
    @dowsemeister Well, yeah, you seem to have nailed it. Kaye was reliable and skilled and that’s what studios wanted. Jamerson had a sound that was extremely groovy and fit perfectly with the Soul scene. Personally, I think its unfortunately that alcohol got the best of him and he faded out. As far as Kaye claiming to have been the player on some Jamerson tunes, I hadn’t heard that. I’ll look into that seems like she wouldn’t need to lie about it. She has enough hit credits. If true, that’s low.
