    Bassists you like who aren't your normal cuppa char

    My usual music is Classic Rock but I agree 100% with John Taylor (Duran Duran and Power Station) and Mark O'Toole (Frankie Goes To Hollywood) I also have a great deal of respect for Steve Priest from Sweet and Nick Beggs from Kajajgoogoo. Chris

    Jon Hiseman RIP

    Sorry to hear this. Check out 'Colosseum Live' - it's an excellent live set from Jon Hiseman (Drums) , Mark Clarke (Bass), Dave Greenslade (Keys & Vibes), Richard Heckstall-Smith (Saxes), Dave 'Clem' Clempson (Guitar) and Chris Farlowe (Vox) - a great double album. R.I.P.
  3. Evening all. As per the title - looking for a cheap but gig-worthy Gibson 335 copy for occasional duo work with a keyboard player. Cherry Red, Blond or Sunburst ideally but condition more important than color. Replies by PM please. Thanks for looking. Chris

    Songs you absolutely hate

    Songs I do not like playing include 'Rockin In The Free World' and 'Zombie'. There's probably more but they are massively out-numbered by songs that I do enjoy playing - including 'Alright Now' and 'Mustang Sally'. There's only one song that i refuse to play, and I will leave the room if I hear it and that is ....... 'American Pie' by Don McClean. Chris

    Jeff Beck doc BBC4 2100 and 0125

    Just watched this - it's been a long long time since a tv programme has held my undivided attention from start to finish. Always liked Jeff Beck's playing and the programme opened my eyes (and ears) to several phases that I missed. Thanks to the OP for the heads-up. Chris

    Seller's Remorse

    Only one bit of seller's remorse here Fender Precision sunburst/maple/tortoise shell - bought brand new from Guitar Village in Shaftesbury Avenue, London in October 1973 (and I have still got the receipt). Sold in January 1978, to a music shop in Colchester (Oasis Music if i remember correctly). Big big mistake - but needs must when the devil (the bank manager at the time) drives. Chris
  7. Cheers - please check your PMs and reply with relevant details. Take it easy. Chris

    Appreciate the skills and techniques but something missing - soul/feeling/emotion ? ? Chris

    Bending strings???

    Another member of the Esteemed Syndicate of Bass-String-Benders (North East Essex Chapter) here. BTW - Check out the sleeve of the Long Playing Record version of Humble Pie's excellent 1971 double live album - "PERFORMANCE - Rockin' The Fillmore" and you'll find a picture of Greg Ridley (ex Spooky Tooth, another great band) string-bending on a P-Bass. Ain't nothin' new under the sun. Chris
  15. Yep - I've tried a couple Squier P-Basses and they looked, played and sounded fine to me.
