And, get those fingers limber-errrr.

I read an interesting post on Exile to Whoville about this.  Not only was 
John heard because he was loud, he was heard because his rig was set up to *be 
heard*.  All of his nimble finger work wouldn't have mad much of a difference if 
he was covered up by  Pete's loud lead guitar.  To "turn up" a bassy bass may 
just have the effect of making things rattle.  Pino is used to his own rig 
with his own strings that are "bassy".  John used two amps, one being a lead 
guitar amp and strings that made a more distinct sound.  He was a trebly bass 
player that could be heard along with Pete.  He made sure of that and that was 
his trademark.  For Pino to just turn it up may not be that simple.  He may have 
to become a Who bassist all around.
