  1. Hi guys. After a break down of a four year relationship with my partner I am having to move back in with my parents which has made me have a real think about my future. I am 25 and am a prison officer so I am in a dead end job which has got me thinking, could I cut it as a professional player? My friend is a drummer who works on the cruise ships and has suggested that as a possible career move, I am really interested in having ago however my sight reading isn't up to scratch. I am trying to teach myself at the moment to which I feel I am progressing. I have set myself a 6 month goal to get competent so I can start going for auditions. So a few questions I guess! How many of you are professional players? Have you ever worked on the cruise ships? How good a reader have you got to be? What other options are there for breaking through to become a professional player? Thanks for any feedback Dave
  2. Hi! I'm just over the border in Chester but originally from North Wales too. See you around at a jam night some time. Dave
  3. I'm playing Matt and Phreds this Saturday. However it's with a Latin band so I doubt it would be your cup of tea!
  4. Hey guys. My band Caliente are playing Matt and Phreds this Saturday! http://www.mattandphreds.com/diary/caliente-0 Would be nice to meet some of you guys there
  5. Saw them earlier this year. They were great! Jojo is an animal!
  6. I bought a delay pedal from eubassix. It came well packed and in full working order. Great guy to deal with.
  7. I've got the emg jvx pups in my VM jazz and I really dig them.

  11. Hey guys. Making my Manchester debut with Caliente this weekend. Really looking forward to it! Would be lovely to have some support too! http://www.mattandphreds.com/diary/caliente Cheers Dave
  12. Anybody got experience with this? http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/JAZZ-BASS-WIRING-LOOM-with-series-parallel-push-pull-pot-with-VARITONE-/252328299607?nav=SEARCH I'm tempted just as a cheap upgrade to a Vm jazz I have, I've upgraded the pups and other bits so it's only the wiring/preamp that needs upgrading. I can't afford a John East or anything of the like so I am looking for something on the lighter side of my wallet!
  13. Hey everyone. Just wondering if there is a decent website for putting bands on for getting gigs? Been trying to book some for bands I play in recently and just going direct with the venue.

  15. If you can see through the writing style (it's all abit cheesy and a little basic) the lessons that can be learnt from the book are great. I'm not a particularly spiritual person but there is plenty I can relate to in the book. Worth a punt I'd say!
  16. +1 on musician. My tool of the trade happens to be bass
  17. Read that Victor Wooten book. It's pretty Spiritual but there is certainly some lessons to be learnt in there.
  18. £20 folks. Decorating my house and need it gone!
