  1. https://reverb.com/news/quiz-can-you-name-the-bassist-by-the-bass?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=blog-bassistquiz&utm_content=bass I surprised myself and got 100% - although admittedly one was a lucky guess.
  2. I'll kick it off. I always assumed Julian Cope was purely a vocalist and was aware that James Eller played bass through most of the solo work. I saw an old Teardrop Explodes video recently and there was Copey playing the bass. Further research revealed he was the bass player in The Crucial Three. Anyone else surprised to discover someone started out as a bassist?
  3. I was concerned it might be a Fred Lennon scenario but actually it's worked out well. He lives in Australia but we go on holiday together every year and Skype every weekend. My Mum used to go to The Cavern regularly and I always joked that my Dad could be McCartney. Subsequently, I've found out that my Dad's band played on the opening night of The Cavern.
  4. Not really comparable but I knew virtually nothing about my Father for 50 years until my wife tracked him down. Turns out he’d played the tea chest bass in a skiffle band.

    Mustangs!

    1974 Mustang. The first bass I ever bought and still my favourite. Unfortunately my eldest has borrowed it on a permanent basis.
  6. Mate, I’ve got it. PM with your address and I’ll post it.
  7. What a resource Basschat is. Just brilliant. Thank you guys.

    Not heard his name mentioned as yet. All the staff seem to be working professionals so I imagine there’s quite a turnover.

    Thanks guys. I really appreciate your advice. First day today. Early days but I have to say, so far the teaching has been outstanding.

    I’m just about to begin a HNC at this music school. Just wondering if anyone has any inside information, useful tips etc?
  12. I’m quite proud of this thread. Normally my contributions elicit two responses at most.
  13. I’ll kick it off - I’m terrible at working out bass lines to songs without using someone else’s tab or notation.
