    Calling it a day

    Well I've been pondering for a while now ,no proper band and only jamming now and then ,me and my musical journey on bass have finally come to a end .its a sad day indeed ,the band scene is not great around here either no more , so I'm gonna concentrate on my first love which is acoustic guitar ,take care everyone , over and out 👍

    Thanks peeps, much appreciated as always for all your advice, I do have a Fretless and six stringer and 5,think I'll concentrate on those babies for now, I'm definitely getting more into jazz and funk these days think that's answered my own self doubt really, cheers

    I've hit a wall with my bass playing

    I can nail it live , when put on the spot , perhaps I miss the gigging, ,all my theory I learnt as a guitar player seems of gone out of the window ,perhaps I'm not loving bass as much these days and I may take a break and concentrate on my acoustic guitar for now or learn keys think the break will do me good to be honest as mentioned by Crawford 13 drums!!!
  7. Dear Deirdre I mean basschat ,Well I've finally admitted too myself my playing gone stale stuff ,I used find easy to play and study just doesn't happen no more and it's getting me down , I used know my circle of fifths , major scale , minor scale .and everything inbetween it become quit embarrassing I've even forgotten what key I'm in oh bugger ,My brain turns to mush ,I've even thought about lessons but finding someone near me in Nantwich in Cheshire is like looking for a needle in a haystack plenty of guitar tutors but no dedicated bass tutors , not really into Skype type of lessons any suggestions much appreciated 😕

    Been here before...going on a hiatus?

    I really can relate with this, my Mrs calls me delboy because I shift gear all the while and this, really has me questioning my commitment to playing, and my current situation a jam a couple of times a month is hardly worth my effort or time even tho the rest of the band are great I don't reckon its going anywhere, I could sell and buy a nice motorbike and may do sooner rather than later, keep your fave bass Andy and shift the rest on and have some time away from it all and book your holiday, good luck matey on whatever you decide, PS amps and stuff can be replaced.

    The greatest bass lines to learn ?

    We've recently started playing ,run to the hills, number of beast,Steve Harris is monster bass player ,and it's hell of a workout for your fingers and there's no one to touch him in his style of playing, and we all love playing them as none of us have for years 😀👍
  14. I get about a bit lol😄👍
  15. I'm kicking it back in Mexico for a couple of weeks ,and more I visit the more the music is really coming into my life there's a great band on at the moment playing salsa and very upbeat jazz , , I'm going do some serious studying of this genre when I get back home, there's a chapter in the bass bible on this ,no I've not been at the tequila either not yet
