but, these are theoretical, because i'm not a bass player...
Author pal continues, relating from his GC course…
i still remember your mnemonic for NST, always cracked me up: "california guitarists drop acid every gig." hard to forget that one!
Actually, this memorable mnemonic was long forgotten until a moment ago.
