The new bass-player

Before he left town Liam Graham found me a new bass-man. I almost said "someone to take his place" but nobody could do that! Mike Wittekind is burniing through the chart-book and he should be in fine shape for his debut show at Seattle's World Cup on June 15. He's more of a rock player than Liam, and prefers fretted basses to the fretless that Liam used. Liam's notes tend to swell after he hits them, Mike's notes are more percussive, with an up-front attack, and his lines are more chromatic due to the greater definition lent by the frets. It's an interesting change. What makes it work is that, like Liam, Mike has a solid harmonic sense that enables him to move through the songs purposefully. Neither of them gets lost, no matter how incoherent my charts might be! So come out to the World Cup June 15 and welcome the newest member of the Juggernaut!
