    That's a good way of putting the info down! Waaay easier than reading music since it's movable if the key changes. Thanks for the info.

    I like your notation; easy to read! Was wondering how you handle more complex parts like 'All About the Bass'? You & Tom did a good job of playing together on that song.

    I've always had problems playing with other bass players in the same group. We'd end up 'stepping on each others' toes' & generally mess up the sound of the group. Kohanmike, I wonder how you do...
