    We Close Our Eyes - Go West

    Good work! Thanks very much. Is it possible the bass was tuned down a semi tone on the rekkid? Would make it lay better.

    Prep for audition/first meet

    IMO they are taking the p*ss getting musicians auditioning for a band and the vocalist can’t be ars*d to attend.

    We Close Our Eyes - Go West

    ''Gary asked me to pass him the album sleeve so he could use the sleeve notes to prod his memory. "OK, we've got 'We Close Our Eyes' and that's sequenced bass. Funnily enough, I met Paul King out in LA and he said to me: 'I really love 'We Close Our Eyes'. We put that track up on the monitors as a guide to listen for bass sounds when we do our tracks because we really love the bass on it.' I didn't have the heart to tell him it was two Roland SH101s - which are about £150 each - linked up together.'' Taken from here; www.muzines.co.uk/articles/go-west-producer-gary-stevenson/1308

    Do you want to build a sno...bass?

    There's always things like this on eBay that may be worth looking at as a starting point: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-ELECTRIC-PAULOWNIA-J-BASS-BODY-3-and-MAPLE-NECK-BLACKWOOD-FB-34-Scale/232858003923?hash=item36376b29d3:g:pBQAAOSwCA5bUxY~

    These were my two basses for this afternoon's gig - the Fretless being 25 yrs older than the 4HH Special.

    How was your gig last night?

    Well, a very unexpected night tonight. So different from last night. Usually, this venue is really quiet and it’s hard work. They like us, we get encores etc, but it’s hard work, especially after the previous night’s stonking gig at the blues festival. This was amazing, totally unexpected! From the off we were in Stevie Wonderland with some ska a couple of numbers later, the usual swing blues but with lots of interplay and throwing phrases between each other - where the hell did that come from? I think it’s the addition of our keys player; finally, I have the band of my dreams, this is something else! What a fabulous night! Now we need to work out how the hell we market a swing, funk, jazz, rock n roll, blues band?

    Prep for audition/first meet

    Well I thought that the piece that they sent me to learn went ok. Had to go through it a couple of times...the vocalist wasn’t there so there was no vocal cues. I was nervous though and went to bits when we started jamming. Buggered that up. Thought they were very sound people and got on well but I felt very ...strange...not good...about being one of five people that they were auditioning that afternoon. Guess that is what the likes of actors do every day. Glad I don’t have to make a living from this.

    Should all bass amps have a bass filter?

    I think you might have a reason to be deeply hacked off if you'd bought a Magellan, gone out and bought a Thumpinator and then discovered you could have saved yourself £120 .

    We Close Our Eyes - Go West

    Nice work. I'm sure I read somewhere that that particular bass line was created using two linked together Roland SH101 synthesisers? I also remember Jools Holland, following a performance by Paul Young live on The Tube, announcing that 'Pino's new band Go West will appear on next weeks show' no doubt much to the amusement of Messrs Cox and Drummie....😖

    I just need to discover how to get there and where to park. Can you even take a car to London any more? Been years since I've travelled that way.

    One of the best adjectives I've seen on BC 🤣

    Boss WL20 Wireless

    OK, update time. Used the WL20 at 2 gigs at the weekend, hadn`t had a chance to use it at rehearsal so went straight in, trusting it would deliver. And it did. Great to be cable-free. I`m not much of a mover/leaper around stage, but it`s so liberating to not be fearful of falling over your own dratted lead. I didn`t notice any difference in sound but that`s cos I was using 2 different rigs at each gig, neither being the same as my own. Overall I`m very glad I made this purchase.

    Warmoth Precision neck with ebony board, no idea about body wood, but it weighs marginally less than Gibraltar. Sustains for ever. Wizard '64s. Offered it for sale here, no one wanted it. In retrospect I'm rather happy about that

    Yes, will do. Will be tomorrow now.
  24. Thanks for the kind words. It is indeed!
  25. My transcription of the 1985 hit by Go West - We Close Our Eyes. Both the singer and Pino play Bass on the album this came from. It's played on a 5 string but I don't recall seeing Pino playing one. Not the easiest of keys to play in, so don't let the E sharp trip you up. I find the easiest way is to play the verse in the 3rd position and the chorus in the 1st, a finger per fret of course. We Close Our Eyes.pdf

    Birthday Bass - ACG Build

    Always admired AC's work, superb. For me, I think what sets him apart is the speed at which he shifts progress along, it's amazing how he cracks on with several projects on the go. One day I'd love to have him build a bass for me, it must be a great feeling anticipating the new arrival after choosing materials and spec etc. Good on the OP for treating himself
