Ask Geoff ( Memorial Thread )

Recommended Posts

After having our 5 string vs 4 string mini-discussion, I was wondering, what basses, amps and effects (if any!) did you use during your MGB time?

Early days a Trace Elliot 2X10 combo into a Fane 4X10 and a home made Warmoth bass. Later it was a Hamer bass with a 2Tek bridge and a Mesa Boogie Bass 400+. Bought that one off Nicklebacks old bassist....piece of complete SHIT!!!!

No pedals, Matt wouldn't let me use 'em...bass-cord-amp.

Like I said I wasn't "allowed"to. Matt and Dave had 15 guitars each and a hundred pedals but I had 2 basses a cord and an amp..,..

...yea creativity.

Hey Geoff tell me, how did the whole credit thing work? By that I mean how was it stated that Matt and Dave wrote the music to all the songs except for songs like Alabama Motel Room, Rico, etc credited to the band?

 

Matt wrote the songs on his guitar of piano and then Dave and Matt would write all the part for you and Ian to play?

 

This question came to me after you said you and Ian wrote the riff for Indestructible but were not actually credited for it.

Matt came up with the basic structure, the band worked out our parts, Matt and Dave hooked up and did ??? next thing you know, Good/Genn.

Why Ottawa?

 

Thanks for the insight on the bass effects or lack there of. I just don't get why. When I've been playing HTB or Indestructible, I've been using this neat old pedal, that puts an reverb/echo effect on the sound...it just makes the sound that much cooler. It's a testament to your ability that you made the sounds that you did without any effects.

That was way too funny for a day like this. Any other bus secrets you care to share? I take it that the bus was always a rockin...

 

Do we even want to know who got the most ladies? Any embarrassing moments?
