  1. Despite being a metalhead - i have a soft spot for anything Roxy and Ferry. Nicely done sir. I enjoyed this a lot. Well done!
  2. It's a weird one the pick. I can play rhythm guitar reasonably well, I use a pick just fine. Holding a pick and playing bass and I am all over the place, can't skip strings, hammer ons etc. are woefully weak and it just feels wrong. I tried to learn to play bass with a pick for faster songs, but gave up and spent some time developing a three finger technique a la Alex Webster from Cannibal Corpse.
  3. Trompe Le Monde - Cracking Album, played that to death. U-Mass, what an awesome song.
  4. The Sisters of Mercy - Floodland. Changed the way I thought about and wrote music. Prior to this, all I did was listen to heavy metal. To this day, it's still my favourite ever album and still sounds as immense and majestic as it did when I first heard it in 1987.
  5. I do love the idea of having one of these. I think Amos Williams from Tesseract is grooving one of these now.
  6. Fields of The Nephilim - Earth Inferno
  7. Hey Mands. I had the 1980's equivalent of what you are looking to purchase when I was 15 years old. It was awful, badly set up and the amp was useless. But...... I loved it, because it was my first bass. I learnt the basics on it, learnt how to change strings, tune it, set it up etc. I also posed in the mirror practicing stage moves that I never actually had the balls to do. I covered it in stickers and used it at an audition for my first band. I got the gig, and after about 10 months of unfaithful service I upgraded it. It still lives in my mothers attic (so she tells me).
  8. Years ago when my rock band had imploded, I was asked to dep. for the bass player of an all girls punk band for a couple of gigs. Their bass player was my girlfriend at the time, so I knew their material pretty well. She was off to Uni and they had a few gigs booked that they wanted to do. They played a lot of their own material, plus some Pistols, Clash and Godfathers. Looking back those 3 gigs were some of the most fun I've ever had playing. You can really let yourself go with a good old punk gig. I even wore a kilt for the final gig - which on reflection was a mistake. As were the pigtails I did with my long hair. Go have some fun. I'm envious.
  9. Just got around to listening to Mammoth WVH today. I fancied something different to my usual Death Metal. I also liked his bass work with Tremonti. It's a cracking album overall. Even more impressive when you consider that he played everything himself. Boy's got talent for sure. Very impressed.
  10. I'll leave out Iron Maiden's - Somewhere In Time, it's already been covered (pun intended) here. But I always had a soft spot for Roxy's swan-song cover - the album's not so good though. Also need to include what is possibly my favourite ever album.
  11. How weird. I been having the same issues, which is why I came into this section to see if anyone knew what was going on......I am currently using a set of Ernie Ball slinkies as a fall back. I don't like them....I want my Elixirs back!
  12. Sure - it's difficult to photo as it kinda wraps around my wrist...but here's my attempt.
  13. Yeah, I had just turned 14 when this was released, moved to a new house, new school, parents divorcing, trying to grow my hair - it was a tough time 🤣. This song felt like it meant something to me then. It's never been my fav. Maiden song, but it's always had a special place in my heart - and now the Eddie from the single is tattooed on my wrist. I was amazed by the change in dynamics of the song, the space-age sounding guitars and the almost euphoric chorus, which was a total change from the Maiden i had been listening to since I was 12. I felt the same excitement at 49 when I logged on to watch the premier of WOTW - its a cool song, nothing amazing, but I enjoyed it and it's Maiden. I'll always love Maiden.
  14. Unless you really want the drum patterns, the TC Electronic Ditto looper pedals are worth a look. I use the X2, it's easy and intuitive to use. It's not something I use very often but the simplicity of it means I can plug in and loop without faffing about. https://www.thomann.de/gb/search_dir.html?sw=ditto&smcs=c4ed1d_2065
