Reply to "The Nigel Griggs appreciation thread"

I think those showboating-type bassists lack the confidence to play with taste - confidence that Nigel has in spades!

That, or they simply lack the taste.

What I thought it might be was that the Enz may have been a bit more musically adventurous as a unit. Whereas the later Finn efforts put a greater focus on showcasing the song, with a tendency towards simplicity over intricacy. Certainly both approaches are valid, but I think you get a bit more to talk about with Enz arrangements.

A complete and utter generalization, mind you! Some Enz songs were very simply cast. And some solo, brothers, or CH songs incorporate outre touches. But those tend to be the exceptions.
