A friend of a friend has written a book on YES which is comprised of exclusive interviews with every member of the band, past and present, as well as never before published photos. Looks exciting.

Some might consider this to be "the" quintessential prog-rock bass line of all time.

I'm using my trusty SansAmp Bass Driver for a bit of grind.

Definitely in over my head on this song and had to make some modifications to play it finger style, although I do a bit of spastic picking towards the end of the song.

I've gotten a lot of comments about not using the Ric for this song so I'll address that here instead of repeating myself.

The Ric needs a string change and with that always comes a neck adjustment as I'm getting rid of those awful Rotosounds I put on. Overall it's a pretty fussy instrument and demands constant attention. I think I like the idea of owning a Rickenbacker more than actually playing one. I think they're gorgeous and sound great for some things......but awful on other stuff. I actually haven't played it in months and like the Geddy Lees so much that I got a second one. Also, I'm recording with someone tomorrow and thought it was a perfect opportunity to take advantage of the fresh set of strings on this bass.
