  1. When you've tried everything and your new low B string still won't intontate properly.... :sorry:

      Have you tried pressing it down firmly either side of the nut and the saddles and then trying to intonate?

  2. Wow, Prosteels may well be the worst strings I have tried, its like having the mids on -15 with a boost in the bass just to further emphasize those missing mids

  3. On BBC4 right now: Classic Albums, Tears For Fears 'Songs From The Big Chair'. Ohhhh YES.

      I recently dug this album out from the depths of our CD collection and gave it a play. I had forgotten just how good it is.

  4. 10 years today. Times flies but memories remain. Still much missed, you big daft softy. 💙

  5. Just started a new course of antidepressants...

    I couldn't function with the previous ones - these supposedly have fewer side effects but the list is far from short...including a deterioration for the first 5 days!! Minimum course is 6 months.

    The thought of this is making me depressed.

  6. My band is learning "It's my life" by Talk Talk, so I've re-learnt it some 36 years after I originally learned to play it :)

  7. Had a low profile on here recently....Mum died on 27th June following a stroke and bleed on the brain.

    Her suffering has come to an end.

  8. Just found out my aunt has died from the Corona virus...

  9. Shock admissions - 2 of 'em. Just caught The Motors 'Airport' on radio 2 (that's the 2 admissions).
    What an excellent bass track -well thought out, tasteful,  drives the song along - in fact it is the song. Bass is really forward in mix and take it away, the track would collapse.
    Well, there we go then :)

      Went to see the Motors in Penzance, was a brilliant gig.                      The intro to Dancing the Night Away is a winner:friends:

    Playing keys this time around. Big old doom metal sounds!!

  11. Dear Ped,

    how do I edit or repost an ad with a lower price?

    cheers

      Leon, you can't edit the price in the value box. You can though, edit the advert title to indicate a price drop.

  14. Our trombone dude passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday. Whole band is stunned and bereft... can't believe we'll never see him again. Such a lovely guy.
    RIP Stewy the 'Bone. </3

  15. It's January, so it's that time of year when the band I'm in decides to implode. It's a different band every year by the way. Back to square one it is then.

  16. Sliced the median nerve in my middle finger over Christmas.  Totally numb down one side.  Feels weird :(

  17. Quick Q: Semi-hollow 51 P bass body in Ash. Naked, ready for stain. What colour?

    1. gary mac

      If its a decent piece of Ash, you've got to let the grain show. :)
