coming from certain genres swapping octaves has been pretty well acceptable . So it seems to me .
But Eddy was hitting 9ths 11ths etc. They seem to mix much better than their counter parts an octave down.

Hey Tom,
I think I understand what you’re saying but could you provide an example?

not to get into heavy duty chord theory .Eddy would hit a really pretty sound and announce it as something above 8 in the number of some added tone. For example an added ninth. If I decided to drop it down to an added second it would be harmonically overbearing in comparison.
With 4 strings it was amazing what he could find in variety
