One of my all-time favourite videos and pieces. Wonderful arrangement for the Stick. Thanks for sharing :D Thanks, George. I've had occasion to play this piece with big bands three times. Really interesting charts written by John D'earth, and based a lot on this version and the studio version as we...

So I guess it's safe to say that it's probably really intended for the "decoding" process; helping get a particular fingering down? I myself don't use stafftab either, I'm asking for a couple of friends! Thanks for your insights, good to know. StaffTab is definitely a "learning"...

How do I contact Greg Howard? Hi, If I only had one hand to use, and I was primarily a bass player, I'd go for Dual Bass Reciprocal on a 10-string, preferably a standard 10 (with the PASV-4) or a Railboard. This tuning gives you a familiar 6-string bass on strings 1-6 with the low B and E right in ...

Hi Josh, I love the little Afro Blue clusters. excellent. One thing I like about crossed is that both hands are more in a common field of view. Also, it's much more comfortable to play at the extreme ends of the instrument. playing the right hand on the bass strings near the nut is really uncomforta...

For a while I was teaching a blind student , to whom I suggested putting tape on the back of the instrument, behind frets 2, 5, 7, 10 and 12. This seemed to make a big difference in her ability to keep track of where she was. The tape was actually just "south" of the fret, which gave her ...

Hi Rodrigo, I'm sorry, but the Stickup is not available for the Ten String Grand. Like the SB8, that model only allows the ACTV-2 and PASV-4. I'd say go for the Grand Stick. You will get used to the spacing quickly enough, and you will love having the extra strings. Since you are adding a lower melo...

Low B is a lovely fetish, dictated by the bass guitar's default tuning, which is dictated by the guitar's default tuning,... Whereas Low C is an orchestral foundation! Default lies not within our scales but within our amps.... show me a stereo that can reproduce low B with ease, and I'll show you a ...
