  1. [quote name='Leonard Smalls' timestamp='1468342967' post='3090320'] Am I the first? Here's my bagpipe based opus, featuring the talents of fellow Weed and Guitar Hero, John Sullivan. [url=http://soundcloud.com/dredd-and-the-badass-weed/weeds-investigate-the-duality-of-man]Donald Where's Your Troosers[/url] [/quote] I like it a lot.
  2. [quote name='Mornats' timestamp='1468530819' post='3091657'] Yep, the first I think I'm struggling to find some time this month. I've got a skeleton down but it need a fair bit of work. I'll do my best to get something out though. [/quote] Sitting back living off the spoils of last months success. Laziness always follows success.
  3. [quote name='lowdown' timestamp='1467868143' post='3086790'] No problem from me, and certainly no shame cast. Humour wasn't lost either, I just found it to be a crap joke. [/quote]
  4. [quote name='lowdown' timestamp='1467699532' post='3085382'] ? [/quote] You posted a link to something.... Normally people post links to entries in the challenge. It was a quip. Once scrutinised under the lamp of bad taste and the hue of shamelessness has been cast, it would appear that the humour is somewhat..... Lost. Forgive me. Let's move on.
  5. [quote name='lowdown' timestamp='1467484104' post='3084070'] Wow, I have just been reading about a German tourist who fell and died there last Wednesday. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/german-tourist-plunges-death-while-posing-photo-machu-picchu-n602941 [/quote] Is this your entry???
  6. [quote name='LewisK1975' timestamp='1467285601' post='3082501'] I'm no expert, but I'd say it's a nice job on the relic (a lot of work has obviously gone into it), although I do think the BIN is high. The 'make offer' button is available though, if I wanted it I'd be starting offerings at about £300 for it. [/quote] £300 for a banjaxed Squier. Are you a millionaire???? It's worth about £60 imo.
  7. Day off today. Hoping to get something done. If I don't see so photo by midday there will be bagpipes.
  8. Easy choices for me this month. I really liked three entries. I liked the rest but really liked three. So for the first time ever i didn't have to labour over the decision.
  9. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1464956651' post='3064129'] Still not well, so a bit laboured this month, and it shows. Here's mine, however; a bit shorter than sometimes (shouts of "No bad thing..!" from the more rowdy amongst you, of course..!). I give you ... [url="http://soundcloud.com/dad3353/gear-acquisition-syndrome"]Gear Acquisition Syndrome ...[/url] Enjoy. [/quote] Clever take.
  10. voted.... a lot of the tunes took a similar theme so it was difficult to choose. I went for the three i liked most in the end. Not a bad entry among them though.
  11. sorry about the tardiness, is there room for one more. https://soundcloud.com/theboysings/to-the-arms-of-our-lady-1
  12. [quote name='Zenitram' timestamp='1463908027' post='3054809'] A P body but with Jazz pick ups in it, with a Jazz neck that is the same size as a P neck, but it says Jazz on it, with flatwound strings from a Jazz, but used on a P, and with Jazz tuning heads for the E and A strings, but Precision heads for the D and G strings, with a BBOT bridge from a P that was put on a Jazz, but then swapped out for something fancy and put back on the P. I like to keep it simple. [/quote] Sounds a bit like my current bass.
  13. [quote name='bassbiscuits' timestamp='1463143546' post='3048977'] Around the same time i also worked in a jewellery shop, and a cool looking, older guy came in one day. He looked faintly familiar. We got chatting, I served him etc and when he handed over his bank card to pay, the name on it is "Mr A Stardust". Cool. [/quote] What a cool name.
  14. [quote name='CamdenRob' timestamp='1460732287' post='3028306'] In my experience an idiot with pickups is better than an idiot with a microphone... [/quote] Microphones and idiots are never far from each other.
  15. If I get time this month, and I hope I do..... I will keep it very stripped back and basic. Maybe bass, drums and vocals. The song is floating around in my head already and is pretty much there. I've got a nice simple bassline and chorus with an uncluttered arrangement. The picture immediately struck me with an idea which I hope I can deliver. I've listened to some of the entries so far. I like them all. There really are some clever people here.
  16. [quote name='Skol303' timestamp='1462274452' post='3041588'] ^ Either of the above suggestions are great If you want something even more pocket-size, have a look at: [b][url="http://rocksmith.ubi.com/rocksmith/en-gb/products/"]Rocksmith Real Tone Cable[/url][/b] - it's intended for use with the Rocksmith video game, but it's basically a USB guitar lead that you can use to record into Audacity or pretty much any DAW software (USB on one end, standard 1/4" jack plug on the other). The quality isn't fantastic, but it's certainly 'good enough'. You can pick one up for £20 or so if you shop around. [b][url="http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/amplitubeios/"]Amplitube[/url] mobile App plus an [url="http://www.lightinthebox.com/audio-interface-amp-irig-system-guitar-effects-pedal-for-iphone-ipad_p4071355.html?currency=GBP&litb_from=paid_adwords_shopping&utm_source=google_shopping&utm_medium=cpc&adword_mt=&adword_ct=84187195634&adword_kw=&adword_pos=1o4&adword_pl=&adword_net=g&adword_tar=&adw_src_id=1810908567_301579154_21687113474_pla-78632005276&gclid=CPaYwYXkvcwCFRSeGwodN3UGYw"]iRig[/url] adaptor. [/b]You plug the adaptor into your phone's headphone socket; plug your headphones and 1/4" jack lead into the adaptor; launch the App you have you a mini amp sim and recording/mixing package in your pocket! Again, the sound quality won't win any awards but it's far from shabby. The adaptor costs less than a fiver and I think the App is around £10 last time I checked. [/quote] Wow... Awesome advice.... I've been schooled. You learned me. Both of those sound awesome. I will check them out as I'm looking for something exactly like this.
  17. [quote name='ambient' timestamp='1462293364' post='3041861'] Seriously ? Begs the question why he would want to. [/quote] A minor facetiousism I think. More earnestly though I must speak up for poor old Sally. It is indeed a fine song. The fact that it has been raped and bastardised by every dog and his trom-bone is not the fault of the song itself and I urge you to relisten or if you haven't heard it before then listen for the first time to the Wilson Pickett version. It is utterly sublime, a performance and arrangement that is second to very few. Give it a listen. It's on YouTube. If you don't like it I'll give you your money back.
  18. Wait til he gets a job and has a few kids... That'll quieten him. 😜
  19. Voted..... Exceptional entry from lurks this month. Great work. Skols nirvana collaboration is also worth a mention Great tracks all round but if there was a top vote then mine goes to Mr Lurksalot.....
  20. [quote name='Twincam' timestamp='1461539354' post='3035583'] Tbh I hate talkbass. Unlike here most of there members are not the most friendly of people. And if you make a mistake you will be jumped on. [/quote] Completely the opposite to here.
