Re: How to play bass track with guitar ?



This is the double-neck I built so I could have a hardtail for a dedicated "Open A" tuned with flatwounds with the bottom neck set up with Floyd in regular tuning. I originally thought I would use it more for live that recording but the two necks seem to sing together so it's obvious this thing will be stuck to me a lot. This picture is from before completion.

Careful what you build, you just might fall in love....

You betcha, and they're heavy, too!  The only time most people play them at all is in a live setting where a switch-off is demanded within a song.  Stairway to Heaven is the obvious example.  Page drops that doubleneck like a hot potato after the song is over and goes back to his LP.
