Got to listen to this clip yesterday. Very nice!! Thanks again for posting the link!!

Coupla things:
--I'm amazed at JJ's ability to nail the "one".
--His tone is quite....Ummm....Gritty? Is that normal for a studio bass tone?
--Players like that, IMO, are just plain naturals. He's just got it. I've played with guys like that. If I was a more petty man, I'd be jealous.



OK. I'm petty. And jealous! [smilie=angry-smiley-005.gif] So sue me.

Jerry is playing through the Ampeg B15N reissue.

He is plugged into the top of the "1964" Channel, the 0-Db input.

"Gritty tone" is due to the Ch1 Volume Control set at approx 12 o'clock, over driving the preamp.

Tone controls are set flat at 12 o'clock. The Portaflex uses the Baxandall tone circuit.

Ya can see this stopping around a minute into the video, when Jerry leaves his stool.

The amp is in the "1966" setting. The logo lights up in blue.

The "1966" switches on the solid state rectifier and fixed bias on the power tubes.

The "1964" switches on the tube rectifier and power tube cathode bias. The logo lights up in green.

Thanks for the insight, Jamie!

Let me ask you guys that are more in the know than I am about "studio tone": I'll be blunt. JJ's tone seems to me to be quite...Noisy? Sloppy, even? Lots of fret and string noise when I listened to it. Is this normal for a studio tone? I mean, does it give an engineer more to work with? "You can't boost what isn't there but you can always cut offending frequencies" kind of thing?

Believe me, I'm not criticizing. JJ's one of the alllll time greats. His tone of tracks just kills me. And his feel?? Fuggedabowdit!!

That clinic was a total waste of time. Jerry was creative and significant for the time he grew up in,and he contributed a lot, but in today's environment he's a Model T on a formula one racetrack.
And why is it so magical or even difficult to nail the "One"? If you can't find that maybe you should be a guitar player instead.. [smilie=fun_84.gif]

You can take most of "today's world" and flush it down the toilet IMHO.
There are two kinds of music, the good kind and the other kind. I like both.

First of all, welcome to BABP, gimmeagig!

Secondly....Whaddaya, a freakin' idiot?? Seriously.....Damn.

Here's a link. Watch the whole thing but there's a great explanation of The One at around 1:50-ish. If you don't understand The One of have The One, you have missed out on a hee-YUGE part of what it means to be a bass player.

Also, here's JJ's site. Hit Discography and look at his "Definitive Recordings". It's just stupid how many people he has played with and how many great recordings he's been on and how his bass playing was such an big part of why those songs were so great.

He's a true master of his instrument and has a distinctive tone and feel and drive that made him a true innovator of electric bass in pop/blues/R+B music. To call him a Model T is not only disrespectful but ignorant.

As far as the one goes.... Where the one is placed and how artful is what he's (I assume) referring too. Being exactly on the one is for computers and tapping bassist. Speed and widdly widdly bass playing is not musical or interesting in my world...."today's" music is heavily influenced by digitally generated beats imho. Listen to New Orleans and Latin/African beats, the one is much harder to grab with musically. Making the song breath is our job. Placing the beat before and after the one but still in time is the ultimate expression for a bassist. That push pull on the beat is where it's at! It takes musical maturity to understand and execute that. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

Yeahhh...
but wouldn't be no Formula One without the Model T.
[smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]

Because ya see,
we're all standing on the shoulders of our forefathers.

I appreciate how far modern players have progressed the instrument through techniques, gear, etc.
probably as much as anyone here
but groove, feel and soul,
as well as an understanding of our relationship to the bass drum,
are the bedrocks of our instrument
and will always be relevant.

Without that,
I am afraid you're buildin' your house on sand.

So, God bless Saint James.

Feel free to argue.
...but my remarks stand.

I hate to pile on but, I saw Jemmott with Gregg Allman a few years ago and just his feel alone could not be touched by 99% of the bassist out there, a true master!
