  1. So my copy arrived as well. In time for my birthday, even!! At roughly £22,it is quite the steal, although I would not have minded the original price of £15 🙂 I've put it aside for now, and intend to peruse it one page at a time. The additional weight lifting exercises that come with this, are an added bonus 😄
  2. Right, so we recently played in someone's kitchen (not kidding) and the bloke who owns said kitchen recorded the gig. Keeping in mind the earlier comments, I would once again like (...) some feedback on my latest effort. https://soundcloud.com/drdiddley/dr-diddley-genk-teaser Just like before, be honest but please try to be civil about it 🙂 I am trying to learn from all your feedback. Hope it shows at least a wee bit...
  3. Damn you, RichardH ! I just went and reordered a copy 🙂
  4. I will always state Uriah Heep as my favourite band, yet I do not listen to them that often. Mostly cos I know all of the repertoire up until Wake The Sleeper by heart. The later albums are still brilliant, but I am getting older 😁 Some albums I always come back to: # Joss Stone: Soul Sessions 2 # Warren Haynes: Ashes & Dust # Skyclad: The Answer Machine? # Joss Stone: Water For Your Soul # Anouk: Get Her Together Any of these will inevitably lead to weeks and weeks of repeat play in the car, usually twice a day (1 hour commute 1 way).
  5. The worst part is, I didn't really want it but at that price I couldn't resist ordering. And now that I can't have it, I want one!!!
  6. Makes me wonder why I do not get a single mail... Time to check if Amazon cancelled my order for me. Not that I wanted this book per se, but still... 🙂
  7. Whilst I would advise reading up on it first, I would definitely recommend anyone to buy an ukulele. My first was a sopranobut I prefer a concert size. Thinking of getting a tenor soon.
  8. Years ago, I ordered an NS design WAV on a whim. I figured since I played in a rockabilly-ish band, this would be a good fit. Took me quite a while to actually sound like I knew what I was doing, but I loved it. These days I hardly play EUB, whether at home or on a gig, so she just stands there. I told my misses I might sell the EUB but she told me to just keep it. My current blues band has a living room concert coming up soon, so perhaps I will give er a go. At no point have I gassed for an actual upright, nor do I consider myself an upright player. I play EUB, which really is a different instrument.
  9. I just spent about an hour getting the bass line down for Jace Everett's Bad Things. Don't have all the details but more than enough to actually get all the different parts as opposed to faking just the main riffs. So I texted the guitarist and told him that he's free to do whatever, provided he respects the number of measures 😄
  10. Damn that Jake is no slouch!! Thanks, guys. Will also check out James Hill, the name sounds familiar...
  11. No problem, and while I admit your post gave me food for thought, it WAS what I asked for and it was definitely done in a more than constructive manner Thanks, we have been thinking of adding backing vocals. I could easily do it - in the mechanical sense that I can sing and play bass at the same time. I'm just not a good singer As for the nasal bass, well it's a fretless and I do quite like this particular bass' tone. Having said that, I will revisit its sound, to hear if I agree or not To be fair, I do not feel like there was any dog-piling taking place. I will admit that I would have preferred heaps of praise but in fairness, I have my mom for that This gives me things to ponder, about the band as a whole, myself in particular and my Audacity-editing skills for this sort of intentions. So yeah, I think this thread is working pretty well for me!
  12. No worries! My initial response was equally ehm, civil I am well aware of this particular drummer - I played with him in a different project for about 7 or 8 years. Like I said, I am aware of everyone's shortcomings, including mine. People who do come out to watch us ( ) all say they are entertained and we should play more / longer. In fact the crew who recorded the Durango Sessions (which was our first live outing) said, and I quote: "With a sound like this, you'll have no trouble getting gigs". They even asked us back for another recording session later in the year But as masochistic as it may appear, I am happy with feedback such as given in this thread - it helps me stay focused on areas to improve, rather than get into a collective-high-five mode that every band inevitably falls into once they start gigging and getting positive feedback (from friends and family )
  13. @bazzbass, this is actually more constructive and less insulting (in my view) than your first remark So thanks, I really do appreciate it!
  14. Shame she didn't update it to a 2.0 version to include forum posts. At least the others are offering something constructive here
