    Isn't a whistlist an inventory of card-game players..?

    Only Buzz - No Sound

    We can work this out with a little more information. I'll assume that, by 'ampjack', you mean a Vox-type micro amp mounted on a jack plug. Using that assumption, then, we'll try being a bit systematic about this. Taking the following combinations, can you give the result of each, please..? Casady -Lead 1 - Amp = Buzz..? Silence..? Plays OK..? Casady - Lead 1 - Ampjack = Buzz..? Silence..? Plays OK..? Casady - Lead 2 - Amp = Buzz..? Silence..? Plays OK..? Casady - Lead 2 - Ampjack = Buzz..? Silence..? Plays OK..? Ibanez AE8 - Lead 1 - Amp = Buzz..? Silence..? Plays OK..? Ibanez AE8 - Lead 1 - Ampjack = Buzz..? Silence..? Plays OK..? Ibanez AE8 - Lead 2 - Amp = Buzz..? Silence..? Plays OK..? Ibanez AE8 - Lead 2 - Ampjack = Buzz..? Silence..? Plays OK..? Over to you ...

    It might not be appreciated going into this with a 'clever clogs' attitude. Doing 'standards' is what is required, so do 'standards' as best as you can, without trying to 'second guess' what they'll think. Your choices are fine; it's your performance of those choices they'll be listening to, not your 'cleverness' in going for the obscure. Sometimes (often..?) less is more. Just play 'em your best; you can't do much better than that.

    Vocalists , is that what we call them ?

    In our band, I play drums and the singer/vocalist plays percussion (claves, cowbell...) and vocalises the trombone solo for 'Beds are burning'.

    What the **** is this?

    Not so different to this ... Disclaimer: I couldn't listen to either all the way through...

    How was your gig last night?

    Snap..! The coloured cord end goes to the console; yellow for Xlr, red for jacks and blue for speaker cable. I've the same PA cables for over fifteen years, thanks to knowing which are mine. I, too, fit thin velcro loops for keeping the cables coiled up neatly. S'easy, really; now even our singer knows how and what to plug in where, and how to tidy 'em up afterwards. Result..!

    your favorite fretless bass albums!

    ... or just the two of 'em ...
  10. Hence the sensible choice of playing 6-stringers.

    Evah Pirazzi & Magnetic pickups...

    I'm not a db player, but according to their web site, those are synthetic core strings, and so won't be picked up by a magnetic pick-up. Here's their web page ... Evah Pirazzi strings ... I hope I'm wrong.

    Favrite bass solo?

    Wow..! A first, for me; a real, live, 'Bootsy' solo..! Wow..! It's my fault, I suppose; I thought he was good, from all the spiel I'd read. Never mind, I'll know better next time (except there'll be no next time. Once is far more than enough...).

    I'd add a few more, but I've run out of material.

    If you're comfortable playing those standards on that instrument, there's no reason to refuse you, especially if you're eager to learn even more (learning is what Conservatory is for, after all...). Our youngest plays a similar bass (has done almost from the 'off'...), and is entirely at ease with it. You'll be fine, if you're not of a nervous disposition. Just play as you normally would at home, relaxed and confident. The fingers will do the rest. Knock 'em dead..!
