    Don't Give Hate a Chance. Difficulty rating?

    Exactly, but without the second note each time.

    I play this and any other disco 'gallops' with 1-1-2 fingering on the right hand which, honestly, really helps a lot stamina-wise. Takes a little while to get used to but works loads better. Think of it like this - if you were doing root-root-octave-octave 16ths, you'd more than than likely do them 1-2-1-2. With the DGHAC-style gallops you're just removing the second note, i.e. root-break-octave-octave.

    Your Favorite Bass Prevalent CD?

    Almost forgot about this beast too: Claimed he hadn't ever listened to Jaco, that's some BS...

    Your Favorite Bass Prevalent CD?

    Make sure you listen to Dave Lee Roth's Eat 'Em And Smile too, Sheehan and Vai on TOP form (Elephant Gun)! 😉

    Your Favorite Bass Prevalent CD?

    I personally think Lateralus is the more 'classic' Tool bass album, but Justin was definitely in full on Digitech Bass Whammy usage mode which gives so much depth to tracks like Lateralus (07:21 for gratuitous use), Disposition (most of the track) and, most notably, Schism, which in itself has some pretty anthemic bass parts. I love 10,000 Days though, Rosetta Stoned and The Pot especially, though I think the album's lyrics score a little more highly on the swear factor!

    Your Favorite Bass Prevalent CD?

    Personally, Living Colour should get a mention for CD bass-alongs, specifically this number which blew my little early bass-playing mind (specifically from the 0:27 mark)

    MusicMan Joe Dart Signature Model

    Ha, whoops, thanks for the info! 🙄

    MusicMan Joe Dart Signature Model

    Yeah, as Andy mentioned above, the OLP Tony Levin is the only signature bass Musicman have done. They've never done one in their premium line before, closest was their "inspired by Tony Levin" (again) Sledge Stingray & Sabre...

    MusicMan Joe Dart Signature Model

    Don't get me wrong, I love the tone on that album and my Stingray but, personally, his grindy Jazz Bass tone on Evil Empire makes me salivate a little more...

    This is definitely a matter of opinion! ;-)

    Spector fans!?!

    I used to have a 2001 Euro 4/NSCRFM that I sold to @Aero71 Absolutely stonking bass that I still really miss. Incredible craftsmanship and tone from the EMGs and Aguilar preamp and, at the time, similar price to a Mexican Fender! @Aero71 Definitely interested in buying that back if you ever decide to sell 😉

    Strings scratching fretboard

    Thanks, yeah, pretty sure it wasn't that. As mentioned in the OP, never noticed this on my other basses and I've been fretting notes on one of those for 19 years! 😉 As an update, took the strings off today and gave the board a good wipe with an EB fretboard wipe and the marks have now all but disappeared...Bizarre. Anyway, shall now be taking Chiliwailer's advice and will be getting some flats on this asap to prevent future near-heart attacks... Thanks all for your help!

    Strings scratching fretboard

    🤣 Quite. Yes, just to confirm (after some self-reassuring checks just now...), this is definitely not the cause! I wish I had 1/10th of that strength in my left hand fingers!

    Strings scratching fretboard

    Thanks, yeah, I'm going to try a touch of mineral oil and see if it helps
