  1. Songs you absolutely hate

    Agreed with the above,and some of my other most hated have been had Livin on a prayer , Wonderwall but i dont think i've seen that utterly shite Micheal Jackson tune where he had the 'god complex'
  2. Bean9seventy - the first UK funk / slap bassist?

    Well i guess if your looking at funk within a fairly narrow field of references but i have always thought of [Santana ,Billy Cobham ,Lenny White] all of which Doug played for, to be very funky and pioneering in the jazz funk/fusion field ...
  3. Bean9seventy - the first UK funk / slap bassist?

    I always thought that Doug Rauch's superb playing with Santana must have had a big impact on the full on more rhythmically busy slap approach to playing ,and this is from 72
  4. Small bass combos?

    I use an Eden EC180 15 for smaller gigs ,and it handles things well a lot more so than my old TC BG250 which use to struggle with an enthusiastic drummer.
  5. Feedback for gyrus

    Just bought a Lovely Jazz bass from gyrus he was a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating have every confidence in dealing with him.
  6. Jazz bass dilemma

    I have had all the bass's mentioned so far and think all would work nicely i would also strongly recommend the Sire v7 which are the most versatile of all https://www.thomann.de/gb/marcus_miller_v7_alder_4_ts.htm?glp=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkcLzu8Ts2QIVLrHtCh0ySwuVEAQYBSABEgIlAPD_BwE
  7. Bruno Mars. Commercial slave.?

    True... and tonight Mathew...
  8. Bruno Mars. Commercial slave.?

    I think Bubinga has a valid point in as much as Mars's music is a pastiche of things that have been successful in the past and seems to lack any original creativity, granted he is hugely popular which i'm sure his record label love but he is never going to be the next Marvin ,Curtis ,Smokey ,James Brown or the hip hop artist's he's parodying of late... more Jimmy Osmond than James Brown i would say ,he even has the teeth
  9. New range from fender.

    Its nice to play and have played all sorts of bass's but when it comes down to it my most played and recorded bass is my fender jazz it's also been the most popular with other band members and producers.
  10. Mr Pink on a Harely Benton P bass :)

    Great playing and proof to any gear snobs that the job can be done with a cheap bass ...nice one
  11. PRS SE Kingfisher, anyone tried one?

    I've played a couple of Kestrals and they both played beautifully and sounded great ... I'm normally a fender jazz man and was initially uncertain about the through neck and body shape but after trying them i have no reservations now .. the necks were very easy and fast to pkay and access to the upper register eas better than a classic jazz type neck, i think they would make great fusion bass's.
