This is just a fun thing, once you get right in the groove, each resolve or turnaround can be made to have their own personality. I know for one I also really like access to the backing tracks to then jam around with, establishing the Marlowe groove, then who know what?
As always, thanks for all you do!
Mil Gracias from the Land of Enchantment!

Hey Thomas,

I hope I didnt offend you. I am new to bass playing and I simply thought ther e would be an amp sound that would bring me the closest I can get to your sound in the vid. Now I know better. Thank you.

Lets me get this right, you want advice on making a jazzbass sound like a rickenbacker, and using using totally other recording methods and still make it sound similar? I dont think so:-) For my recording methods look under pages/recording with px4d

Hey Thomas,

I play a Fender Squire Vintage Modified Jazz Bass and a Roland MicroCube. Which settings would you suggest to achieve a sound similar to yours in the vid?

If you need further information about the amp just let me know.

Thank you so much.

pudsy440: has any other member here noticed that playbassnow loads faster than it used to?? I'm finding it much faster lately, I haven't changed anything computer wise. Just curious. :)

MarloweDK: Well, i use different fx depending on the gig,and sometimes nothing at all. You can get far with just a octaver and autowah. Maybe add a fuzz/distortion of some kind

niftywiz: Sir..plz advice me a Effects processor for Live performance.

Mr Tibbs: WAZZUP Marlowe DK, Awesome Job with Larry Graham and the others...Keep Doin Your Thing Brutha!!!:-)

brainlock1: Hey Marlowedk, I don't know how I missed the Larry Graham meeting that you had back earlier in the year, (both the interview and actually playing his bass onstage) but I just wanted to say congratulations! I could see how much respect he has for you and what an honor it was to see that come to fruition! Thanks for all you do... Cheers. Bryan in Kentucky

MarloweDK: Finn: Its hard to find good Band in a box patterns, i usually just use the "Funk 70s style". Ill think about tutorials. In the mean time guest teacher Paul Wolfe has done some

soporific: Thnx @jazzperdk. That's an amazing video and Mr DK is the main basscat:-)

Finn: Hey Thomas, I just downloaded Band in a Box, and I'm having a little trouble making a good backing track, could you possibly do a tutorial, or maybe link me one that you found helpful? I also had some questions regarding tetrachords, is there a way I could message you about them? Thanks, Finn
