  1. If you do, make sure that you choke on your own;not someone else’s.
  2. And don’t forget that you’re the most qualified and best bass player in the room, playing onstage at that moment in time. p.s Skank is absolutely bang on re. the hat thing.
  3. And in black ink as red or blue disappears under certain stage lighting
  4. How about Sadowsky ? Sorry, he is a bit annoying
  5. My heart always sunk when turning up for a dep gig or rehearsal and there was a Marshall half stack in the corner.
  6. That sounds totally unreasonable to me that they expect you to soundcheck before the date for the sake of the poxy db meter/venue without any crowd noise. We played a wedding venue a few years ago where we sound-checked and all was fine with the meter. First song, first dance, the meter tripped leaving the bride and groom very upset, with the venue not us, as there was nobody to be found to reset it. Fortunately our very clever sound-guy managed to reset it and fix it so it wouldn't go off again. I've had lots of very crap experiences with stroppywedding venues, particularly the newer re-purposed barn type places that seem to be purely in business to extract as much money as possible, from their clients, while providing very little help. I want ask them who is actual customer here in such circs.
  7. I like where he mentions the Beach Boys. Back in my progtastic teens I recall Jon Anderson referencing them as an influence and thought “are you kidding?” Over the years listening with the ears of a grown-up and becoming a huge Brian Wilson fan I completely get it.
  8. Small world: I hade one of these too. £100 from Macaris sold it back to them in the ’80s for £100.
  9. My first bass was a Jedson Tele like this: https://www.camdenguitars.co.uk/shop/jedson-short-scale-bass/ It cost me £30 from Wing Music in Bromley, the bloke in the shop told me it was an Arbiter. I can’t remember what happened to it, possibly traded when I upgraded to a natural finish maple necked Kay Precision, which weighed a ton but sounded alright.
  10. I’ve used DR Fatbeams on my US standard for a while but recently tried DR nickel Lo-Riders. I really like them. Quite stiff but pretty versatile tone wise with a nice feel.
  11. I have DR LoRider nickel plated on my Jazz. I really like them.
  12. That was another on my short-list. I haven’t heard a bad thing about them.
