As a bassist, Cody Wright draws from the facility and phrasing of his guitar technique, using a pick for most of his solos and melodic flourishes. "It just made the most sense to me (to use a pick), since I can already do all that stuff on guitar...Why start from square one again?"
By fine-tuning the settings on his instrument and amp to smooth out the tone of the pick, Wright is developing a truly original sound on the electric bass.
When Cody Wright first got his hands on a guitar, he initially turned to hard rock and metal for inspiration, traveling down the crossroads of the blues before moving on to fusion, jazz, and acoustic music. Technical excellence was always an aspiration of Wright's, along with melodies found early on in video games and television shows to which he would pay attention.
"I was always the kid that would look at the box of a new video game in the store and wonder what the music would sound like for certain levels. Weird, I know!" Wright says.
