Ripper on the bay

You're forgiven.

Fretless Rippers are awesome. Ralphe Armstrong played one with Jean-Luc Ponty back in the day.

Check out 'Nostalgic Lady' on Ponty's 'Enigmatic Ocean' for a sample...



.....or his solo on the live disc "Jean Luc Ponty: Live" - Ralphe just kills it. The part where he turns up the fuzz just baps you upside the head (in a good way!). I remember back when I was I young'un first hearing that - my little head almost exploded - "holy sh*t, what the hell was that!?!?". I'm pretty sure it wasn't on his Ripper though, might have been a J-bass. Still....
