Re: [Harp-L] Upright Bass Simulator

Best if the bass player understands the differences between the two sounds  
and chooses to play the electric bass with a technique that will simulate the  
sound of an upright. Bass player from Big Dave and the Ultrasonics (Jimmy  
Rasmussen, now a part of the Toronto blues scene) was excellent in this  respect.
There is a way to thumb the electric bass string with the right hand,  
allowing the string to vibrate for under a second and then damping it  off with the 
fingers of the left hand on the fret board that sounds pretty  authentically 
upright when done right.

am  inquiring about something/anything that will give a 4 string Fender

Any thoughts/experiences ??
