  1. Past hour
  2. Very true. But the "new" Guns N Roses capable of filling out stadia, seem pretty thin on the ground? There comes a point when it's no longer great seeing some of the older guys parody themselves (Paul McCartney, Debbie Harry). It's a nostalgia fest with a finite shelf-life if the industry makes it difficult for new bands to break through. And free music streaming can, paradoxically, be a massive barrier to entry for new talent.

  4. I've read fair few reviews on Thomann and they ring true as they are not simply 'this is great'.
  5. To be honest, I've lost the taste for it... ๐Ÿ˜”
  6. Crikey, that's a bit strong.
  7. Irrespective of what Lola is identifying as, Lola the Leylandii Lopper has exceeded the bounds of reasonableness. Slotting anyone?
  8. Fwoar, that sounds nice... and you've reminded me that there's a really rubbish barber just up the road from the market, who seriously needs to "go", for pretending to be Italian, and giving me the worst flat top I've ever had... and that's not a euphemism. ๐Ÿ‘Ž Ohh, you mean Lola? She used to be a fella you know. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  9. A lad brought a Affinity P to me for a setup, couldn't believe how good it was, he paid ยฃ179 on offer with a Rumble 15 amp unbelievable value! Was it good enough to learn on he asked!!!!!!
  10. Rock may have nothing more to say but that hasnโ€™t stopped people asking to hear it again. Look at Guns N Roses doing their Not in This Lifetime tour. And many eagerly awaiting the anticipated getting back together of Brian Johnson and AC/DC. Sure, nothing new but so what, if fans of great live music want to hear it, well thatโ€™s the important thing.
  11. Can't see that in the description I don't read reviews because a lot of the time the companies selling/ making it write the reviews them selfs
  12. Judged on your bass collection it has been a lucrative career option? I have found the Taffia to be most beneficial in various situations.
  13. Just bought a fretless. As I was en-route to a gig it came with me. He'd a playful noodle in the sound check. Sounded gorgeous so I went for it. Half time break and only a couple of dodgy moments and only a handful of gratuitous sliding into the final note. I'm loving this
  14. shurely shome mishtake, for it is a female operative.
  15. And watching/listening to George Michael singing for Queen, well they should have just handed him a blank cheque and told him the job was his if he wanted it.
  16. As there appears to be a Welsh slant to this thread, can I just chip in that a Ginsters is merely a step on the road to enlightenment, and true Nirvana is to be found at Carmarthen indoor market, where they do a steak & ale pie that is more like a steak en croute than a pie, it's so chock full of tender steak. Lidl's? Pah........ Note to younger BC-er's - never tell your school careers advisor that you want to be professional hit-man. Got me into all kinds of shite.
  17. Is this one string (B would be my suspect) or all of them?
  18. I would, but sadly he's already paying me eight grand a week as a "security consultant", so I feel there would be a conflict of interests...
  19. Thanks for reply. I would not worry about intonation errors of a few cents, different finger pressure, hand position, vibrato and temperature will also come into play in a gig. Just to add to the fun, in one musical genre I played in, tuning slightly sharp improved the overall band mix. I have no idea why this should be.
  20. My main bass is my affinity p bass. modded the pups but I love it. light and easy to play.
  21. Sorry, I'm a Richard. The wavering info i gave was incorrect. It wavers between 438 & 442 Hz, which translates to roughly 10 cents either side of 0.
  22. Love watching this as I was there and our banner was showed a couple of times throughout the footage. I remember needing a fosters ๐Ÿ˜‚
  23. Couldn't agree more, RIP Freddie ๐Ÿ’—
  24. This is definitely true, but there are still many artists - especially grime artists - getting relatively rich through music. The difference is they're not doing it solely through the established route of gigs and record sales, they're getting paid through social media, licensing, guest appearances and cameos etc. They're having to work harder and have a more consistent output for less cash than the old bands, which also explains why the music - especially grime - is made and recorded using the most basic equipment, usually by 2 people rather than a whole band in an expensive studio full of engineers followed by pressing plants / managers etc - and released for no cost in next to no time, but still attracting an audience of millions in a matter of days. Basically to make money in the current environment, you have to have minimum personnel, simple equipment that gives you instant results, zero production cost, zero manufacturing costs and endless confidence, energy and enthusiasm. Genres like grime fit into that format perfectly.
