This time I caught them at Porto, Portugal I saw them last week here in Stockholm. Both Tony and Michael had an Ampeg for the bass side and a Rectifier for the melody side. Michael broke a string and had to walk out for a while to replace it while the other two guys played a little improvisation. A...

Don't know about the hammer-on and pull-off techniques he uses but I like his way of playing against the delay unit. And the extra sub bass sounds great. Didn't know about this guy, will definitely check out more of his music. Thank you for posting this link!

Since I'm pretty new on this board, about one week, I may as well get done with this presentation right away. I have no STick yet but ordered a 12 the other day; MR 5ths/4ths tuned light guage with a PASV4. It will plug into a laptop rig I'm now using with guitars, flute, sax and EWI (+ live looping...

(General tip) The more I have been playing music the more I have come to appreciate a human meter, as when not playing to a click. But in the type of recording we're discussing here it may be very neat to have the recorded audio line up with the tempo grid of the recoding application (Logic 9 in thi...

I'd be interested in other criticism Hi Rob, Sounds as a great recording to me. Maybe I could agree to some degree with akinu that you play the piece a bit fast. But that may only be an issue with this version, if you mix the recording differently it might be just awesome in that speed. After all, ...

how did Bob do harmonics with one hand while playing bass with the other? It looks and sounds as he is using a technique I first saw used by guitar player Nils Lofgren: you hit a string while lightly touching it at a "node" with some other finger. At 1:08 it seems as he is actually creati...

Thanks a lot! That was exactly the kind of educational answer I needed. I think I have to change my order for light guage strings as a start. My only reason for using thicker strings with low output single coil Stratocasters is the crippled twang factor with lighter strings, but the Stick doesn't se...

Bending is easier with light gauge strings, and I think easier to control, too. That's interesting to hear. What's the sound of light guage strings? Any drawbacks compared to medium or hard? Timbre, sustain... If comparing to guitar one big drawback in using light guage strings is the difficulty to...

I'm still in the seven to nine month limbo awaiting my first Stick, so I watch a lot of Stick videos on YouTube, local Stick concerts and talk to Stick players I know locally. One thing puzzles me: Why are so few Stick players bending strings to play glissando? I imagine it would be easy to hit at l...

I think it is an awesome tool! And it will probably bring on some interesting discussions regarding copyright. I don't need it myself though. Wasn't it Paul Bley who said "Practice makes perfect - imperfect is better". For some reason that quote comes to mind...
