  2. Oscar Pettiford tuned his 'cello to fourths .
  3. Could someone please explain the symbol that looks like a Gaucho’s tool of the trade ? What is it meant to represent ?
  4. Yesterday my “ badge “ changed from the one that looks either like a lightbulb or a woman’s bottom with her knickers around her knees to the one that looks like either a coronavirus or a bolero . !
  5. I like this because these are the colours I hear in Monk's playing . ( Chromesthesia )
  6. Keter Betts ( bass ) wrote this tune and took half of the solo time in this recording with the Bobby Timmons Trio . Old Skool Stamina .
  7. I had this problem fitting heavier gauge nylon tape wounds on a Harley Benton fretless acoustic . The silks had bunched up towards the ring so I trimmed them with nail clippers and my moustache scissors and then gradually crushed the leftovers with mole grips . Just a pinch at first , rotate 60degrees , repeat till 360degrees and test . If still no joy decrease the mole grips gap by 1/8 turn and try again . When I finally got them down to a suitable diameter and they tested okay I wicked a little superglue into the silks to keep them there and spun them through a pinch of wet and dry Emery paper once the glue had dried to smooth them off . A smear of candle or beeswax helps afterwards for fitting/removal .
  8. The Legendary Late Lemmy pops up when you least expect it .
  9. Was playing with the dog in the garden the other day when a passing seabird sang the beginning of " Swinging Safari " so I tried to play it later on my upright in the kitchen . I couldn't quite remember all of the middle 8 so I looked it up on YT and had a pleasant reminder of what a fun bassline it had : - Worth a playalong once .
  10. Bassist talks about his five years with Erroll Garner . ( Skip to 2:00 to avoid old black and white adverts )
  11. His first big break was being invited to join Jools Holland's band after Jools tried him on a couple of piano trio small gigs .
