As I was fishing several months ago under a partly cloudy sky with patchy fog starting to set in, the reality hit that fall weather was upon us. The temperature when I arrived at one of my favorite fishing holes was a beautiful and sunny 70 degrees and now I was starting to get a bit chilled. A tip from Lucky Craft pro Gary Dobyns is to affix a couple of SuspenDots under the chin, where the bill joins the body. In clear water, bass tend to suspend deeper under the floating breakwaters where depth equates to shade. If you’re a beginner, you’ll love an option like the Yamaha RBX170 Bass or the Epiphone Thunderbird IV Bass.
There’s a joke in there somewhere about bass players and a complete lack of morals (and or peasants) but I haven’t figured it out yet. Most guitar shops will let you plug in and play around with any instrument right in the store. Heavies: Where bigger bass are found, or in snaggy cover or with heavier tackle, I will go to bigger jerkbaits such as the Pointer 100, 100DD and others in the 100+ size range.
When it comes to learning, assuming that you want to gain an understanding of music so that you can compose your own lines, rather than blindly copy something somebody else has played, you’ll find music theory is easier to follow on the Bass. But great Bass playing takes no less skill or dedication than is required to play any other musical instrument well.
The Gretsch Musical Instrument Company , never well known as a maker of bass guitars, got a relatively late start in the bass manufacturing business. I said earlier that the bass forms the bridge between the rhythm sections (usually the drums) and the rest of the music.
Takahiro caught his two biggest bass during the last five minutes of the tournament. These types of floating bass cover tend to be out in open water, with little shade. The bass strings on this guitar are much thinner than the strings on the electric bass. A guitarist playing the Bass generally sounds like – a guitarist playing the Bass!
