  1. Sounds alot like the Caddyshack song in the beginning, siicckkk!

  2. I’m sorry but when I see that bass I can only think of this version of “Come Together” –

  3. “Come Together” was actually my audition piece for the University of Bridgeport’s Jazz Improv Program back in the day run by Mr. Art Davis, a well respected upright player. I had to notate the whole thing and did it in Emin. In any event, I did it on a very old Fender PBass with sunburst body and maple neck. He loved it, I passed and then was taken to his other studio where a bunch of other players were. Keyboardists, drummers, horn players, jazz guitarists, etc. He passed y arrangement out to them and in short order we had it going it and my little rendition came alive in a way I never thought possible. So, the song itself has always had a special place for me and I’m always interested in hearing how other bass players interpret it. Today, I have an old black & white Fender P Bass and a Fender Marcus Miller Signature Jazz made in America.
