Can anyone help me with finger noise? quickly jumping 3 4 frets on round
wound is so ridiculously noisy.. even sliding actually.Can’t figure out how
to so it silently.

I can’t quite read the brand name in it’s styleized text on the headstock.
I see it’s a natural wood precision type of bass but, I’d appreciate it if
a bassplayer would inform me, us, what he uses so I can reccomend it to a
bassplayer I know who has ruined his G&L bass, once a nice bass for him and
is in the market soon again, I suspect for a new bass. The things
guitarists and bass players do to customize and hotrod their guitars and
basses, lol. ; ) …in the never ending search for tone and playability,

And what are those gloves? do they prevent finger callusses or are they to
enhance tone?

Written By Andrew Langton on May 7th, 2014 @ 1:27 pm

thank you very much!!
I just wanna know… why the glove? is for smoothnes, softness or just
for cari9ng your hand

Written By Hijo Solo on May 7th, 2014 @ 1:47 pm

Scott…I know that you probably get asked this all the time, but why do
you wear the glove? I have noticed that you are able to glide through the
fret board with ease…so that was my assumption.

I agree very useful! My biggest problem ever was not being able to move
fluently between different positions. I feel extremely positive now! Thanks

Jeff – Happy Birthday to you. Thanks for all the music and inspiration to
not only feel music , but think it as well.

Written By pgsticker on May 7th, 2014 @ 7:18 pm

Thanks Jeff. Prelude from cello suite no.1 in G is my personal favorite,
usually for morning exercise, but I guess c minor will be next :) Btw,
maybe you saw Stu Hamm’s version of Moonlight sonata, also very inspiring.

Superbe Jeu de basse ! Vous êtes Magique. :)

Written By Mick Taylor on May 7th, 2014 @ 7:53 pm

Wonderful lesson, Jeff. Thank you. I have a tape of your band playing this
live from ’87, with Frank Gambale on guitar. I also saw the incarnation of
your band with Allen Hinds. Both amazing performances. Best regards.

Written By Scot Gormley on May 7th, 2014 @ 8:18 pm

Good advice Jeff :) Would it fit with oriental style of music? I’m getting
into raga and maqam and I think they hava great potential for fusion styles.

Written By Daniel Lucas Hernández on May 7th, 2014 @ 8:22 pm

One of the truly Great!
