  1. How the heck do you first find out that you can do that?!!!
  2. yeah that's the one. I like this 12" single extended version:-
  3. I could never get the hang of keeping the open A going whilst cavorting up and down to/from the dusty end ...best I managed was a kind of one beat thing. The easiest way to play the song though is ... Travel back in time to the early Nineties. Move to Nottingham and get the members of the band "The Diamonds" ( not the famous 'merican one) to pick you instead of me at the audition. Then, when the departed lead guitar player isn't replaced you too can enjoy playing All Right Now to the wonderful audiences at the East Midlands WMC's, with no solo to faff around under! No one cared. Not once did the audience complain ...they just danced to it as they always had!
  4. Movin' on didn't take me long to learn actually...but probably more than one listen.
  5. You don't have to lick the lollipop at the same time Skinny you know?
  6. My Pizz is equally boiled in such circumstances. I don't mind busking them at a jam session in the Dog and Poacher though 😉
  7. We have been having fun tonight commenting on the fact that "we should all be able to play most songs on one hearing" and although on first glance this appears to give credence to that opinion in fact twice during the video he cites occasions where that may not be so true. " the Beatles had 27 number 1's but only used the "common chord progression on one of them ... The guy that's wrote all the hit songs lately( never heard of him and can't be bothered to watch it again) wrote 22 number 1's and only one of them used the famous chords.... That's 47 very popular songs that don't follow a standard pattern! He also tells us to look out for the chord progression in the choruses of many songs ...what about the verses? I believe it's possible to play a semblance of a lot of pop songs on one hearing, but that's a long way from having "learned to play them," and I think it's disingenuous to dismiss people on here as not right for a covers band if they can't play it after one hearing. (Although I quoted your post Skank, my latter statement here is in fact aimed at Tim who espoused the opinion referred to).
  8. Are we not in the DOI? Crumbs, no wonder i don't feel safe.
  9. Yeah but you'll have to read it more than once to nail the timing of the turn!
  10. Well he does know how to push the right buttons in one go. 😉
  11. I refer my learned friend to my retort to Mr Mandrel earlier.
  12. Hang on,what is this witchcraft? Basses have 4 strings!!!
  13. I'm not entirely convinced that you are giving the subject the gravitas it deserves old bean.
  14. How can you hear "Darker"? Shirley that describes a visual effect? Crumbs you Egyptian Gods are something else obvz!
  15. So very true Skinny old chap...so very true! 👍
  16. Well you wouldn't have to have many sections coz I don't buy stuff often, about once every ten years or so 😉 But on a serious note an all encompassing "bass" section takes some scrolling through when you are looking for something in particular. We have a section for left-handed basses..why? ....because it makes it easier to find what you are looking for if you are left handed. an acoustic section and indeed a Fretless section as mentioned up thread, would make the shopping experience easier. Obviously it only needs doing if there are enough advertisers selling these things. I only bought it up because I had been Go ogling various shop sites ( all of whom had different sections for acoustic basses), and when I looked on here it was a bit confusing at first. it's no big ting. 🙂
  17. Would it be possible to have a separate section for acoustic/electro acoustic basses? I am interested in upgrading from my Fender and had a quick look through the basses for sale section and could only see pages of electric basses. I used the search facility and two did show and perhaps that answers my question....there's not enough of them about to warrant a separate section? I still think it could be useful members might be a bit more invested in advertising them if they weren't destined to be lost in the plethora of electric basses. Just a thought .😃
  18. I am going to see The Achievers, in Leek on the 23rd... I love going to their gigs...they are so much fun and the music is fabulous.

    Just after Low Wycombe obvz 🙄
  20. Raymondo


    I'd pay 500 quid for High Wycombe... there must be something good there Shirley?
  21. I'd imagine Barefaced are quaking in their boots!
  22. Some of the comments on this thread are just silly. If only there was a thread on Basschat where all this guff could go... 'twood make the place much tidier.
