  1. Just got home. Thanks too the organisers for putting this together again. Davey Rimmer was amazing. I knew easy Living, but was unaware of the rest of the catalogue. I will be looking for their CD's now. Steve Lawson put on a good show. How anyone can ramble so much and be highly entertaining is beyond me. Already looking forward to next year.
  2. [quote name='Count Bassy' timestamp='1506108941' post='3376582'] Bit late now - see above. Watched a demo anyway and I love the tone. However it seems a bit pointless if they're making a point of it's size and then demo it through a 4x10! Their own little cab is tiny, I'd love to see a demo of that. The prices look bloody good as well. Anyone here tried one out? [/quote] Yes. I never gave that much thought. There doesn't appear to be much on the way of demo's with the small cab. A bit strange really.
  3. [quote name='blue' timestamp='1506116587' post='3376639'] A generational thing. I get how young players might not get his once in a lifetime style and approach to the electric bass. However, I will never get or understand how some younger players don't understand his inpact or overall contribution and inspration to thousands of musicians. BTW I'm not a huge Jaco fan. Blue [/quote] Probably because he is hard to listen to. I think most people will acknowledge his legacy and his playing, but it is very hard going. I listen to him sometimes because I appreciate how good he was, but not for long.
  4. [quote name='Dropzone' timestamp='1506006710' post='3375852'] Roland Rat, Rat Rapping. TUNE!!!! [/quote] love me Tender was number 32.
  5. How about a hotone thunder bass amp. It isnt a combo, but they are tiny and get decent reviews. Never used one myself, but always tempted. The cab is small too.

  7. What an awesome bass player. Such a shame. He was very inspirational.
  8. [quote name='artisan' timestamp='1505672574' post='3373487'] yes i find them quite handy as they are close to where i live so it's easy to nip in & try something out,(they have a 30day money back guarantee policytoo) which i did on saturday morning to find i really didn't get on with the Fuzzmo at all,ended up buying an Ampeg Scrambler overdrive instead,which is mega. the staff in the showroom are very helpful to the point where they said that they would match the competitors price if i decided to buy the pedal. [/quote] Fair point. I always assume no one ever lives by a decent music shop. My nearest is at least one hour away
  9. Do you particularly like Gear 4 You? I wouldn't have bothered phoning and gone straight to a competitor
  10. when your name is John Smith, it becomes difficult
  11. If I could chose just an over rated album, then Paul Simon - Graceland . Pretentious rubbish
  12. [quote name='Bolo' timestamp='1505323306' post='3371072'] Jamerson & Pino. Not bad, but heavily overrated around here. [/quote] Jamerson was another musician at the right place at the right time. He shaped a lot of Motown songs with his bass lines. Maybe not the best ever, but he must be one of the most influential. Some of the bass lines sound like they should never go with the song if you listen to them in isolation, but they fit like a glove when put into the mix.
  13. You're Gorgeous - Babybird. Not the best wedding song
  14. I also like the Levellers. Levelling The Land is one of my favourite albums. Fantastic live in the early 90's.
  15. A bit of IMHO type of question. If pushed then it is virtually any famous boyband from New Kids On The Block to Westlife and everything in between and associated with before and after
  16. I had a go on a left handed Lull. I went for the Clover instead. If I had the extra 1k, I would have walked out with The Lull. It really was nice
  17. [quote name='silverfoxnik' timestamp='1505203086' post='3370105'] [b]Raffle Items:[/b] 01. Gotoh FB30 bass machine heads. Never used 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07. 08. 09. 10. Please add any items you would like to donate to the Raffle here. Thanks 😊 [/quote]
  18. [quote name='Quevlar' timestamp='1505093787' post='3369432'] Apologies for the silly question, have only just signed up to the forum, never played a bass and don't currently own one (hoping to get one soon). Is this something that's open for a clueless beginner to just come along and have a bit of a nose please ? Only about an hour or so drive and would be nice to have a nose at some bass playing up close and personal and see some different bass' in the flesh so to speak. If it is open to anyone with an interest in bass do you pay at the door or need to buy a ticket in advance ? Cheers [/quote] You will enjoy it. The ticket price is about the best value you will get in my opinion. The masterclasses were outstanding last year, and looking at the roster this year, I expect the same. I look forward to this event every year.
  19. [quote name='bluejay' timestamp='1504874392' post='3367948'] I've uploaded a PDF file with the bash timetable here: [url="https://www.dropbox.com/s/d0pqwakzmmlffre/South%20East%20Bass%20Bash%202017.pdf?dl=0"]https://www.dropbox.com/s/d0pqwakzmmlffre/South%20East%20Bass%20Bash%202017.pdf?dl=0 [/url] Can someone please try and access it, and tell me if you are allowed to download the file? It should work, but always best to check. Ta [/quote] The link works perfectly on my PC, and able to download the content
  20. [quote name='MacDaddy' timestamp='1504784220' post='3367265'] As I'm heading to a gig after the bash, and it's a band I play guitar, I will not have room to bring any Shukery goodness. [/quote] That is unfortunate. I was blown away by their basses at the LBGS. I would have been happy to gawp at it
  21. I have just seen a message to say that the Steely Dan bassist has passed away. I can`t find anything to corroborate this.
  22. It would be interesting to hear someone sing like Russel Thompkins from Stylistics to Isaac Hayes in original keys
  23. I still buy CD's. My car still has a cd but no bluetooth. When i get a newer car then i probably wont buy many. I also buy them as i have a cd jukebox. I did buy a record player just so I could get the Superfly album, but i doubt i will buy many.
