    Any singing bassists here?

    I never used to sing. In fact I couldn't sing a note until a joined a function band 20 odd years ago. They let me sing backing but I wasn't all that confident and stood back from the mike. Every gig I kept plugging away and got a lot better. Fast forward 20 years and now I am a better singer and sometimes get the lead vocals on a few numbers (Although I have to simplify the bass part) It just goes to show what you can do if you keep on at it.

    Klaus Voormann Interview

    Yes. Apparently, he was fooling around on the bass at a session when the producer said 'Thats brilliant! Can you do it again?' And so one of the greatest bass intros was born! 👍

    Not everything about the bass is great .....

    I would rather go out and play rather than sit at home because I dont like to play the songs that the audience likes.

    I am sick and tired of trotting out Sweet Home and Alright Now week after week. We tried substituting another Skynyrd number and Free song instead. But had to bring them back because audiences kept shouting for them. I suppose a landlord would prefer to see everyone singing along and enjoying themselves, and you would more than likely get re booked.

    For Beatles Fans Over 65 Only

    I think the remastered white album sounds much better. Although the drums in Gently Weeps are buried deeper in the mix than before. Still, hey ho! 👍
  10. Well, he did (or parts of him) fell out! 😂

    Yes. I was surprised to find John Lennons 'Jealous Guy' on there with the same tune and different words.

    Rocky Raccoon from The Beatles White album, Not only is it a terrible song, but the bass is terribly out of tune too!

    There's a lot of us on here who grumbled about being bored playing Dakota. I dont mind it because I sing it. 😊
