The Bass guitar  has changed the world.

 

 

As A Very Young Instrument The Electric Bass Guitar Has Made Massive Strides In Changing The Sound Of Modern Music,

More Than Alot Of Other Instruments That Come To Mind,

Just Imagine The Beatles “Come Together” Without Paul McCartney`s
Famous Bass Lines,

Or Try To Picture The Cream WithOut A Electric Bass, All Those Songs We Grew Up With ,

Would Not Have Been Possible
Just 30 Years Earlier When Leo Fender In The Late 40`s,Came Up With The First Electric Bass Guitar.

Here Are Some Examples To Recon With
Just Imagine This Music With No Bass Guitars, Then you realize how

The Bass guitar  has changed the world.

The Bass was a huge part of our modern early music

More than anyone else, it was Cream who changed the face of British rock music.

They took the fusion of blues and rock pioneered by Alexis Korner and John Mayall to places where it had never been before. They employed a level of group improvisation

that was worthy of free jazz. In fact, their music had basically three layers:

a pop melody, lengthy solos inspired by free jazz,

and a propulsive rhythm’n’blues beat.By the electric Bass Guitar

They indulged in guitar distortions and dissonant solos that were shocking for an audience raised on the Beatles.

Even the soul-jazz melodies of Sunshine Of Your Love (1967) and White Room (1968), while not revolutionary,

pointed towards a more sophisticated kind of “pop” than the childish refrains of Mersey-beat.

The Bass Guitar Builds Music

 

Cream was the most successful of the blues revival bands, forcing British rock that at the time still fed on pop tunes, to an abrupt reversal of direction.

The Who had already given it a try, and the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds had already reformed the blues in a revolutionary way, while Bob Dylan had experimented with long topical songs on Blonde On Blonde.

But it was Cream that made the new genre happen.

Cream was the band that altered the format of the rock song: long free jams recorded live instead of three minutes of verse, bridge, and chorus recorded in the studio.It would have been way too boring without the Bass Guitar.

They sold fifteen million albums in three years, a record that made the Beatles seem like losers.

The members of this power trio, formed in the autumn 1966, were all veterans of the blues revival. Guitarist Eric Clapton was the same prodigy who revealed himself with the Yardbirds,

and who had contributed to the legendary recording of Bluesbreakers with John Mayall. Drummer Peter “Ginger” Baker, skilled at many forms of percussion, had already played, in 1960, with the Nigerian musician Fela Anikulapo Kuti, and in 1962 with Alexis Korner and the Graham Bond Organisation.

Scottish bassist Jack Bruce had traveled some of the same roads as Baker, before joining Manfred Mann. Bruce and Clapton had met each other in the Powerhouse,

A short-lived lineup put together by John Mayall, that also included Steve Winwood at the keyboard.

With Cream these three virtuosos simply brought to fruition the experience that they developed in the London clubs,

bringing to the rock concert stage long, electric, high volume improvisations.

Cream debuted with two singles: Wrapping Paper, that belongs to the early psychedelic era, and I Feel Free, the first taste of Clapton’s solos.

Fresh Cream (Atco, 1966) was an historic event: Clapton’s high volume distortions, Baker’s acrobatic style, and Bruce’s melodic atmosphere raised ordinary and rather poor material (mostly covers, except for Toad by Baker and NSU by Bruce) to the highest levels.

The compositions of Jack Bruce take over on Disraeli Gears (1967), an album decidedly more pop and less bluesy, produced by Felix Pappalardi.

Strange Brew is a typical example of how the group could transform blues into rock for intellectuals who were tired of Beatles pop tunes.

Tales Of Brave Ulysses, Clapton’s tour de force, features the introduction of the wah-wah pedal.

Sunshine Of Your Love, a long collective delirium based on one of Bruce’s catchy and obsessive riffs,

Remains their masterpiece.

And all because of the Electric Bass Guitar

Their fame came with their concerts, which in America instituted a social shock as important as the love-ins of the hippies. Clapton, fast and incisive, Bruce, pulsating and powerful,

And Baker, loud and overflowing, created a new standard for popular music.

Bob strolls into the music store. He’s grey at the temples, wears glasses, and has a bit of a stiffness to his walk. In his eyes, a lifetime of experience. He’s been married for thirty five years. The kids have gone on to start families of their own, and Bob’s been thinking about something.

The salesman watches as he makes his way over to the bass guitars. He follows. “Can I help you find something?”

Bob tucks his hands in his pockets and motions his chin at the Jazz Bass hanging on the wall. “She’s a beauty.” I forgot how to hold one of these girls.

The salesman eases the Jazz from its perch and hands it over. Bob lifts his foot to the rung of a nearby stool and rests the Jazz on his leg. He plays a 12-bar walking line with a lot of feeling and groove.

The salesman plugs the Jazz into a floor amp and sets the dials. Bob plays more lines and the now amplified thunder shakes the floor. He`s lost in the fret board and  doesn’t hear as the salesman relates some of the features of this particular Jazz. All he hears is the thunder.

When he finishes his demo, he turns the Jazz over in his hands. “I used to play when I was younger. We did school dances, local weddings. Pop, rock, blues, swing from 60s and 70s mostly.”

The salesman asks, “Planning to take it up again?”

Bob hands back the Jazz. “Oh I don’t know. Just looking, I guess.”

“Well, you’re pretty good, man.” He gives Bob his card. “You should think about it.”

When Bob gets home, he takes out his old photo album and does a Memory Lane once-over of the guys in the band and some of their stage gigs. He really would like to play again, but the truth be told, it’s been so long and he knows he’s no Spring Chicken anymore. And anyway, what’s the point of buying a brand new Jazz Bass when he’s probably forgotten most of what he used to know? A few basslines in the music store does not mean he could still play all the songs he used to love.

But wasn’t the thunder great, though? Wasn’t it a genuine thrill to feel the floor rumbling again under his feet?

I’m almost sixty, he reminds himself. I can’t start all over again. He looks at the salesman’s business card.

Bob’s wife comes in and breaks up the reverie. “Where were you?”

He closes the album. “Just a walk to the music store.”

She sets a coffee cup next to him. “Remember, if you get to have a new bass, I get to have a new acoustic guitar.”

His heart beats a little faster. Maybe I could do this, he thinks to himself. His breathing gets quick and the adrenaline rush hits him. He  gives her a wink. “Maybe we should take lessons this time.”

She rushes from the room to grab her jacket. “Hurry up. The store closes at six!”

Fender Squire MB4 bass in good condition  I know it’s a subjective thing but I found this bass stayed in tune much better than the Squire P Basses I tried. This stayed in tune better than the MIM Fender P Bass I used to own. An inexpensive bass that stays in tune, sounds good and is not all beaten up. I’m a mellow guy in my forties, this was used at home only. It got good reviews, check them out.

The single-coil P Bass pickup up front and single-coil J Bass pickup at the bridge have a continuous pan pot between them to crank out growling, grinding, howling tone. Deep double-cutaways and 22 medium-jumbo frets let you soar free on high-note solos. Piratical graphics adorn the body and are inlaid at the 12th fret.
