|Mike Watt offered some of the most quotable and most articulated descriptions of the roles and techniques of singing bassists in our first interview, and there was a major in-flux of subscriptions and feedback to our first interview. I enjoy discussing these topics with Watt, he is simultaneously creative like a good artist is and interpretive like a good engineer is. So I decided to ask him some more questions in a subsequent interview last week, recorded on December 7, 2009.
Topics included Mike’s Songwriting, Demo Communication to his Bands, Individual versus Band Practice, Stage Layouts, Audio Ingredients in the Monitors, and which fundamental Bass-Guitar Techniques were and are of greatest usefulness and importance for singing bassists like himself.
