Re: Great example of playing off each other
That's funny, I was going to comment on the sound of the Rick. I actually LIKE the clean, punchy sound and high end of a Rick, but it does seem exaggerated in the video. My brother has a '74 Rick that he bought new and played in various bands until the '90s. It definitely sounds unique. The sharp edge on top was creating issues with pain in his right forearm (resting on it), so he switched to a hot rodded P-bass. He just bought a new Hartke bass amp (15" tilt back, 500W with aluminum cone) and the P-bass sounds way better through it than the Rick. The Hartke has a great blend of definition, high end and low end rumble. Enough power to play any gig we do.....and it only weighs 36lbs.

Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!
"I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham
