So.. What's it all about ? Well, I've been busy in between sailing trips and such. I've come up with an acoustic bass guitar that really works !! Yep, the Chookfoot Ride-on bass. It has a big base body and a few other tricks makes it produce
a goodly useful amount of db's. Gorgeous woody tones more lively than a standup bass. You straddle the thing and play it like you're riding it. The vibes feel good too ;-) . It stands on it's own, always there, ready to ride, so you know that it is going
to be played. No more trying to find that lead or shifting an amp the size of a fridge. The back corner is radiused for those of us who like to get a bit animated while playing. It's a good thing - essential for acoustic jams, campfire jams and lounge room
noodling. Available in fretless too.
The 6 string acoustic guitar is also a ride-on job. It has a wonderfully fat bottom end, lower neck angle to make strumming easier. It isn't as portable as your normal 6-string but it sits and beckons you to straddle
and play, it's not locked away in a case out in the back room. By far the best seat in the house. I own some pretty tasty steel string acoustics but this one gets played the most.
My Cajun drum caps off the suite. Nothing too fancy here other than it's
kick note, it really thumps. So if your current cajun sounds like you are bashing a shoebox ...
So, if you're the type who has your muso friends or family drop over, imagine offering them a seat on an instrument ! You just know an epic jam will follow
