Re: So..what is your LEAST favorite song to play?

2 come immediately to mind:

1.Sweet Home Alabama (Free Bird is so offensive I don't even want to mention it)
2.Smooth - this has to be the worst Santana tune of all time

Re: Anyone use a 10" Scotch-style bass with a drum set?

I have a 10x26 60's Ludwig that I use for Blues and Roosty Americana type gigs. It sounds great. Big and boomy but with a pretty quick response ( for a 26). Brings out my" inner Keltner"
