While My Guitar Gently Weeps

To Francesco: I've always been a fan of Paul's bassline in "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", and I've seen you video and heard your audio file doubling Paul's original bassline. I've always been curious to how you get the tone of the bass, and how it's played.

Would you mind sharing the video and some secrets to how you play the song? :)

I think he used the Left Handed Fender J bass on that track.

Very good, Jeff. I'm surprised Francesco hasn't responded yet :shock: but I'm sure he's very busy and will get to me when the time is right.
