    This is true.

    No, it was definitely Megadeth. It was a small, pneumatic-jawed Vic Rattlehead above the drummer that fell partially.

    Not really a fan of theirs, but Nine Inch Nails "Closer" comes to mind.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    I hate the White Stripes, but I must admit that Jack White is talented with his pedals, if you know what I mean and I think you do.
    Run it through an octave pedal and the low E on a guitar will most certainly sound like a bass. (Cf Hey Hey My My (Into the Black) by Neil Young--Neil's guitar is filtered by an old Mutron Octave Divider--makes it sound like a train laying on the brakes).

    Now see, I've spent the better part of the last ten years almost solely around musicians and yet still when people break out with stuff like this it's like you're speaking Senegalese. And I don't even know if there is such a language as Senegalese, which is equally appropriate.

    I've seen this, and I can hear it, but the words come in and arrrghhhhh.

    Re: Great bass lines

    No thread about bass lines would be complete without a mention of all the great lines laid down by Motown house bassist James Jimmerson. My favorite is "I Want You Back".

    And on a more avant-garde note, the late Jaco Pastorius did some amazing work on a couple of Joni Mitchell albums. Check out "Refuge of the Roads" or "Cotton Avenue".

    I'm kind of a pedal-geek. An octave divider adds, in addition to the note that is played on the clean signal, the same note, only an octave (or two) lower. The old octave pedals were kind of primitive and often had difficulty "tracking" the signal coming from the guitar and ending with the amplifier, so they kind of "burped" a lot trying to keep up with the signal notes, resulting in the screeching train sound. The more modern ones track nicely, but don't sound nearly as cool and anarchic.

    All the Motown sessions guys were the Old Masters of their instruments. I've not heard musicians since that top them.

    My old band's guitarist had this great vintage octave pedal...I can't remember the model, but I think he picked it up second hand at Music-go-Round. It actually worked quite well, but I'm familiar with the "burping" sounds you mention.

    I've got a multi-effects processor made by Boss that I use...it has an octave pedal function that is probably technically better than the one our guitarist used, but like you I just don't think the sound is as cool. There's somethign to be said for a certain amoutn of primitivism in your sound.

    I have, but they're generally jazz guys who aren't doing session work anymore. There are a good number of musicians active today who are the absolute masters of their craft--you just don't know of them.

    Not to take anything away from the Motown players, who were simply exceptional.
