  1. Just discovered these on Youtube, I apologise if they have been previously posted, and I know that isolated tracks are nothing new, but these are a little bit different with just voices and bass, and they make for interesting listening. There's quite a variety on there, and as well as the stellar bass playing, they also highlight just how effortlessly soulful and musical some of the singers are/were. Love these two (15) (BASS+VOICE) James Jamerson with Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell - Ain't No Mountain High Enough - YouTube (15) (BASS+VOICE) BEST DUET EVER - JAMES JAMERSON & MARVIN GAYE - WHAT'S GOING ON - YouTube
  2. I read this book before diving in http://www.melvynhiscock.com/ and found it very helpful, having said that, i think by browsing this forum, and (dare i say it) Talkbass or TDPRI which have build your own sections, i think you would pick up lots of useful information The other thing is post your efforts and ask questions, people like nothing better than helping out and passing on tips Enjoy what you do
  3. I must admit I don't listen to Hendrix at all these days, but this is the exception, he pulled everything out of the bag on this recording
  4. Always thought Ann Wilson was one of the best, but watch how she slays Robert Plant at the "to be a rock and not to roll" bit
  5. The older I get, the more beautiful I find this. She did another version of it on the Directors Cut album which is lovely too
  6. Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave spring to my mind Love their stuff anyway
  7. That's beautiful, Ice Blue is such a cool colour, pun intended A great end result
  8. Very cool bass, I bet it sounds lush. I was watching and learning 'Kiss and Tell' last night with the maestro himself. You're a lucky lad😊
  9. Both lovely colours, I'm very partial to Ice Blue at the minute
  10. Hi LukeFRC that's very kind of you to say so, it's still my number 1 take care
  11. It's a limited offer, but if you're quick you can get a free copy of Amplitube SVX from here https://audioplugin.deals/amplitube-svx-by-ik-multimedia-free-download/ref/11/?campaign=AmpliTubeSVX
  12. As above, I have one, used to have an OC2, and would recommend these as a cheap alternative, good luck
  13. I've gone quite light headed 😲
  14. Indeed, far too nice to part with, I would recommend a mint green nitro scratchplate from Spitfire to set it right off!

    Show us your rig!

    I took this one when I finished the cab, but I had posted threads in the Build Diaries for the cab and the bass build. Got a lot of great advice and help on here from people lucky enough to have a real fliptop or 64 p bass. This set up is close enough for me and my needs.

    Lovely RedVee I have a PF20T as well, used with a home built B15 cab and P bass, it's all you need!
  17. Now this is interesting, good luck with your project Chopthebass
  18. Wow, that white jazz looks fantastic. At first I didn't like relics, I thought the idea was great, as long as they weren't done for the wrong reasons, but they were usually a bit over the top, so I had a go at doing one myself and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. The nerdy geek side of me enjoyed the endless hours I spent on researching different methods of achieving the most authentic look, and the practical side of me enjoyed having a go and admiring the results. I could never justify splashing out on a 64 Precision or a CS replica, but I think I got the next best thing which is actually more valuable to me because of the time, effort and outside help invested in it. I would recommend everyone to have a go at one.
  19. What do you get if you cross an Elf with a Midget? A Milf? 😏
  20. That's lovely, they need to make more in that colour
