loved that beatle bass as a kid

I discovered bass guitar as a kid, growing up in Austin, listening to the Beatles. Even though their early recordings had terrible bass response, I could still hear the solid, dotted quarter note riffs from Paul’s Hofner “Beatle” bass guitar. I loved it when George Martin started using a bass speaker as a microphone to get some real bottom end on their stuff – I think that was about the same time that Paul started using the Rick in the studio (Rubber Soul/Revolver/Paperback Writer period). Anyway, I found a pig of a Hofner knock-off in a pawn shop when I was 18 – I pawned my beloved MacGregor split-level golf clubs to get it. I was totally ripped off, but very happy. I recently sold that bass in a garage sale and have regretted it every day since. I’m not much of a bass player – the guitar is my main instrument – but I still love to pick it up, from time to time. Oh, and I still love Paul’s bass playing – especially his stuff with the Beatles between ‘66 and ‘69. Really nice stuff, that…
