  1. For me it was a mix of Steve Harris and Phil Lynott (when he did Out in the Fields with Gary Moore). PS - I used to have an Allegro Estate, but in blue. Fantastic for carrying gear, but little else.
  2. I had a similar feeling a few years back. I have since re-bought different versions of every pedal I sold for peanuts at that time.
  3. I'm interested in developing this technique. Where do you rest your thumb when playing on the B string?
  4. Lovely bass! I'll be back here as soon as mine goes...!
  5. I'm an accountant (cue tumbleweed). My colleagues can't believe I'm in a band, and my bandmates can't believe I'm an accountant.
  6. This. I remember years ago at some awards ceremony, Phil Alexander from Mojo magazine berating Busted for covering Teenage Kicks, as it was a cover that 'you just don't do'. What an @rse. No one pop song is more worthy than another in my view.
  7. The internet really is a double-edged sword. On one hand it's an amazing resource that I wish was available when I started playing. On the other hand, it's a massive distraction, and it is easy to become demotivated by players with amazing ability (ironically usually playing music that I don't like!) The 'jocks' and the 'nerds' already have sport and science. We mustn't let them have music as well.
  8. Enjoyed the first one, and just downloaded this. Looking forward to it.
  9. We play Josie and Peg. Both very enjoyable bass lines to play.
  10. Could you be over thinking this one? Before investing in new gear, see what the new ensemble sounds like together. Daniel Spriewald's tone may be completely wrong for it.
  11. I like this song. Very 'coverable' too. Coming soon to a pub band near you...!
  12. Lovely looking bass. That nitro finish is going to be the gift that keeps on giving! GLWTS!
  13. Enjoyed that. I'm sure we can all relate to some of those bad habits. Thanks for sharing.
  14. I have felt this way in the past, but at the moment I feel that too many gigs, or 'bad' gigs can suck up a lot of the energy that could otherwise be put towards productive practice/rehearsal towards better (albeit less frequent) gigs.
  15. I do like the look of these. Thanks for inducing a GAS attack.
  16. Have you ever tried an ice scraper? I'm off to get mine now.
  17. First concert - Meatloaf, Ipswich Gaumont 1985 Last concert - Sleep Token, Colchester Arts Centre Best concert - David Lee Roth 1988 / Bowie 1990. Any time I have seen Queens of the Stone Age or Ghost. Worst concert - Agent Steel, Hammersmith 87? (won the tickets so no worries) Loudest concert - The Prodigy, Brixton Academy 1997 Seen the most - Thunder / Dweezil Zappa Most surprising - Black Lace Next concert - Ozzy (fingers crossed) Wish I would have seen - Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix
  18. Excellent all round. Really enjoyed that.
  19. Garage storage works for me. Off the ground and well covered.
  20. I always went for option one, mainly because this makes the outro more impactive. I recall that Elbow's bass player plays a keyboard on this one live.
  21. This is what I thought of when I saw the post title. Turns out that it's 2018 though.
