Volume 10, tone control 10

Funk with the odd slap and pop - then a straight walking jazz/blues bass. Both played fingerstyle.

Played with a pick - some real punch for more aggressive basslines.

Volume 10, tone control rolled down to 0

Fingerstyle. About as fat as it gets on a Fender Musicmaster.

Played with a hard pick right down at the bridge. Nice.
