Our video with Dead Guise from 3/10/18  :)


Sounds great, Wolf.  I'm enjoying while at work today.  :)


I notice lately you've been playing your upgraded Essence more often than the old Distillate or your Series basses... it sounds fantastic. Just a 'safety' thing?


I often worry about collisions with our rather spastic guitar player on similar small stages... I wouldn't sweat a(nother) little ding on my old Persuader, but I'm quite protective of my Custom.

Last night after changing the strings on my Custom fretless, to break them in, I put on the Fleetwood Mac album "Rumours" and played every track, including a couple of the out-takes.

This is one of three songs that eventually became "The Chain", the only song on the album that all five members have a part in writing. John McVie's contribution of course became one of the most recognizable bass lines ever. The bass was his 'continuously fretted' Alembic Custom Series I.

Joey Alexander.  He's a little older now; this is from his new album.  It's a John Coltrane tune; has a very nice feel to it.

Two that stuck in my head from a nice, long drive with a very old friend...


From the Wailin' Jennys- https://youtu.be/Pz91iizX6_A
And from Amanda Smith- https://youtu.be/sMPQK4dS8Mw


We've just spent a couple days together visiting and catching up. Just put her on a plane back to Southern California a few minutes ago. Feels a little like a Forrest Gump moment. (from being- just like peas and carrots to... just like that, she was gone)

The Wailin' Jennys tune is nice; the timbre of their harmonies is wonderful.

After two or three hours of practicing the same song over and over, trying to get the tone and effects right, the internet offered up this, as if to show me how it's done:  David Gilmour, Comfortably Numb.
