I thought George and John were the only ones that used the Bass VI on any Beatles songs...Paperback Writer was the first beatles song Paul used his Rickenbacker on wasn't it? I remember reading somewhere that the reason that tracks bass is so big is that they tracked bass last, and miced it with a speaker cabinet instead of a microphone...

Lots of web and print sources confirm this, and I found a source that said he played his Ric on And Your Bird Can Sing...

A good example of the Fender Bass VI sound is Cream, Jack Bruce used a Bass VI between his use of a Dano Longhorn and a Gibson EB-(3?)...

Darn! I only have 5! Now I guess I have to go tell my wife and kids that I am a fake. Oh... wait a second... I forgot... I do have a couple of those little six stringers! I play with them every once in a while when I'm doing some recording but they just don't have that BIG window rattling sound that slams you in the chest and makes everybody get up and dance! Oh well, once a fake always a fake...

Peace!

In the song paperback writer paul uses a classical music background to back the song its called counter point. plus the bass line is from another song he adds it in without most people knowing it . He also uses a chours pedals You are thinking whats the big deal. He,s the first person to use one. AND the rick and fender were built just for him o yea roto sound made him some special strings. That later were use by the ox, chris squire and Stanley clarke .Before paul the bass was just background noise in rock and roll. And if you want to hear real bass playing go back to the jazz period of mingus and ballard or country music on sunn records

So are you saying Paul used a Chorus on Beatles records? Since chorus wasn't "officially" availibe in pedal form until the Roland CE-1 in the '70s. The Beatles engineers did develop a form of "chorus" during the revolver sessions, but that was done with a pair of tape machines.


Here is an interesting link with info on Paul's Ric, and the story behind his stock Fender Jazz:

That's more because the Beatles came along at about the same time that bass guitars with magnetic pickups came into fashion. The bass guitar as an instrument made it possible for bass to come out of the background in a way that wasn't easy with the acoustic upright basses in use before that.

Yes, Paul did some great, pioneering work on bass, but again he doesn't do anything significantly different to many modern bassists. (Obviously many modern bassists were influenced by him though.)

Thanks,
