He Did This For You


« on: July 26, 2010, 08:10:31 PM »

I've started doing something that works well and gives me the opportunity to get more use out of my axes.  I bought a nice Hercules double stand and take both my Rickenbacker and Hofner to our Tuesday night Celebrate Recovery ministry.  We play 6 songs, 4 up beat and 2 mellow for the offering and altar call.  I use the Rickenbacker for the 4 up and the Hofner with La Bella flats on it for the mellow songs.  Works out nice.

I never get the opportunity to switch basses. It is rare even for our guitarists to get that chance. Now in my CCM band it is different, there are always changes but I never have need. Glad that works for you, it sounds like a great situation Smiley

The only reason it works is I have each bass poised with cables attached, in the stands.  We play one call to order upbeat song 5 minutes before the service starts.  After announcements and the 12 step reading, we play 2 more upbeat.  After that our lead singer calls for the offering and prays before we start the offering song.  I have plenty of time, while that is going on, to switch.  After the offering song, we depart and there is a lesson given or a testimony.  After the testimony, we come back and do the altar song.  After the altar song, there is closing comments, announcements, and reading of the Serenity Prayer.  Then we play a closing song.  I have plenty of time, during that break, to change again.  Without that order, I wouldn't be able to do it.

I always think to take  my P and J to the service so I can use the P for the slow songs but I am too lazy to do it  Grin  so what I do is favor the neck pickup... IMO the mellow songs need a fuller  tone.

I've started bringing two basses as well ... not only as back-up ... but to switch over for certain songs.  Axe #1 is an Aria Pro SB-RI with Rotosound Swing 66s (roundwounds) and axe #2 is a 1984 Peavey Foundation with some flatwounds on it (not sure what they are).  As you can imagine, they provide two very different acoustics.   Wink

I almost always carry two basses, usually a fretted and fretless, but sometimes a fretless electric and fretlless ABG.
