  1. Is There A "Correct" Way To Play

    I do try to avoid bad habits that could cause harm. There's plenty of info out there worth checking up on. Plenty of it being on here. Bravo, everyone! 👍
  2. Is There A "Correct" Way To Play

    This is how i play. I use a pick and get around the fretboard just fine. Technique is a little slack as i'm self taught but i'm happy with what i'm doing and none of my many bandmates over the years have ever screamed at me that i've got it all wrong, and nor have any punters stormed out of any gigs tutting, "just what is he playing at?". What works, works. Just enjoy it! My wrists are just fine. As is my eyesight 😁
  3. Things that annoy you...

    At the moment, the singer and the drummer. Weirdly, our guitarist is no problem 😐
  4. Down half a step

    We've tuned down half a step for a couple of years now and it's not an issue for either myself or the guitarist. Our singer reckons it helps him out as we play some screeching vocal stuff from the likes of Led Zep and AC/DC.
  5. The Brits.

    Who? WHO? I'LL TELL YOU WHO!!!!!! He's an utterly appalling waste of four minutes every time I've had the misfortune to hear one of his dirges on the radio. I am 47. I like some old music. I like some new music. Move along now.
  6. Things not to do in a music shop........

    Is he using a prick, sorry, pick?
  7. Plankspankers, a word to the wise

    We have a winner!
  8. Plankspankers, a word to the wise

    Anal Seepage is a band name in waiting. Any takers?
  9. Saying hello to the main band?

    bloodypratchat.com doesn't seem to be working 😒
  10. Can anyone here do this?

    I shall be using this technique at our gig on Friday to play 'Blitzkrieg Bop'. It's what Dee Dee would've wanted.
  11. Sid Vicious - undervalued bass innovator?

    I started this thread ages ago as a response to a couple of 'Isn't Jaco great' and 'Macca's the best, yes?' topics. Tongue firmly in cheek. I love The Sex Pistols and am saddened by what happened in the short time he had left following the bands' demise. I was only 8 when he died but I remember it being reported on the news as if it were yesterday. I had to ask my mum what heroin was. Poor old (young) Sid.
  12. Playing in Europe - What do I need to know?

    If you're playing in Europe, you probably need to know 'The Final Countdown'. Well, someone had to say it 😁
  13. Sid Vicious - undervalued bass innovator?

    He could play rudimentary bass, bootlegs bear that out. I've no doubt that if he could've got off of the skag and settled down with domestic goddess-in-waiting Nancy Spungen we'd be mentioning his name alongside Jaco now. Probably 😵
