If it’s soggy, it must be the northwest.

I sure reached back into the ancient vaults this week.

  1. Genesis
  2. Rush (still going after all these years)
  3. Camel
  4. King Crimson, 80’s Lineup

  5. Silversun Pickups (not old, and very awesome)
  6. Spock’s Beard (yep, that Spock)
  7. Steve Hackett (Guitar player from Genesis, still playing)
  8. Gentle Giant
  9. Alain Caron (bass player extraordinaire)
  10. Scorpions (I think they are on their last tour)

Give a shout if you remember any of these bands.

Rickenbacker 4001 jetglo

This is my Friday break from writing, editing, synopsising, platforming, …ing and focus on my other love…bass guitars.

For some players, this is the holy grail of bass goodness. Especially for progressive rock bassists. I used to own one. WHYYYyyyy!

The 4001 is brutally awesome in songs like “Sober” by Tool, “Closer to the Heart” by Rush, “Close to the Edge” by Yes, “Orion” by Metallica. Any Beatles song when Paul wasn’t playing his Hofner violin bass.

The Ricky is an all maple masterpiece, heavy masterpiece. Match this bass with a 70’s Ampeg SVT and an 8×10 cabinet and you will be able to cause destruction to china cabinets and hearing loss to small woodland creatures.

This is not meant to be an all inclusive history of the Rick post. That…That would take a book. And an author. And…no, not going to write it.

Take some time today and spin a song that has one of your favorite Rick players. Your world will be a better place.

Here’s a shortened list of cool Rick players.

This was Fingerstyle Friday:Rickenbacker 4001
Hope you enjoyed the bass of the week.
