Thread: Wilco Bass Lesson from Cat Popper

  1. #11
    F312- I think i know what u mean by the violin sound, that is a cool and perfect way to describe it. i believe what u are hearing is the solid state reverb dirtying up/making magic with the grail tone of a Fender Mustang, and honestly for what it is she has mastered the art of playing her rig. i also learned recently after many years her pedals are not always on, much of the time she is bypassing everything (other than the tuner) straight into the vox. Down by the river for sure has no pedals. the tremolo on the vox pathfinder is...surprisingly...insane...

    if not the reverb possibly the gain is up on vox and delay pedal is engaged. it seems she will take or leave the pedals, on most any given song, is my feeling. whatever sounds good at that moment in that room etc. not sure about the danelecto trem pedal. may be for a different vox amp that does not have trem on board

    Nice! I only have one amp, and it's a VOX Pathfinder 15R. She makes it sound very very nice!

    Cool sound from a combination of effects in play.

    That is a great song, and she has a great technique on guitar!

    The talking in the audience during that performance would drive me crazy - never mind the guy who likes to scream out...

    I would tend to agree but if it is a rehearsal and the folks practicing don't mind....

    I enjoyed both of those videos! Thanks for posting !

    It's kinda cool to watch professionals at a "rehearsal gig" (1st video). The practice space looks to be a loft somewhere in NYC. I am a big fan of Norah Jones' piano and vocals (and now electric guitar, too!).

    Question for "mavuser"... did you ever catch a show of the "Little Willies" back when they were playing at the "Living Room" regularly? They were one of my favorite bands back in the mid-2000's. But I never saw them play live. Jim Campilongo can pull some mind-bending sounds out of a Tele and a silverface Princeton Reverb!

    never saw the first 2 runs of LW shows but i caught them in Brooklyn a year or 2 ago when they payed 2 nights randomly.

    have seen Campilongo Trio and other configurations a billion times. have a ton of his videos as well just check my utube

    also the “practice space” is at Sunny’s Bar in Red Hook, Brooklyn- its on the National Historic Register (because sailors used to get drunk there in the 1800s). they play some other spots too
