  1. A PJ Proby track featuring all the Led Zep members before the recording of their debut album.
  2. Sounds sensible. If it's a complicated part I'll break it down in sections and work out a chunk at a time.
  3. Anyone want to form an 80s tribute act? I've just listened to Now That's What I Call Music! Volumes 1 through to 15 and can play all the songs on them now. Wish I hadn't, the 80s were shyte.
  4. Yeah! Why don't you all naff off to the Areyoureallyabassistchat forum? Enjoy the replies coming your way, Tim.
  5. It can be done. I've listened to 4' 33" by John Cage just the once. Nailed it.
  6. Looks like a panduri. https://www.hangebi.ge/eng/panduri.html
  7. It looks like the consensus is just grin and bear it if you're having to play a few songs that you dislike. This is the experience of pretty much anyone who plays in a covers act. In my last band we played a mixture of pop and rock and there were certain numbers that each of us couldn't stand, but not all at the same time! Three of us liked 'Club Foot' by Kasabian, drummer hated it. The others loved the two AC/DC songs we did, I'd rather gnaw off my own foot than listen to them. And so on. It's compromise time, OK, you can have that if I can have this. Never any rows about it, we're all doing something that's fun so there's no way we're going to fall out over something as trivial as 'Whole Lotta Rosie'! It's also true that sometimes playing something you wouldn't listen to by choice is actually quite fun to play. It can take you out of your comfort zone and make you work that little bit harder. And when I say work I really mean it opens up more creative routes in your playing. 'Place Your Hands' and 'Dani California' were two such tunes for me. Likewise, there's song I love but with dull as dishwater bass parts. Just enjoy it. I'm currently bandless and am starting to miss it. Right, where's that short scale....
  8. Weird old time for PiL in the late 80s. 'Happy?' was a decent follow up to 'Album' but it was the beginning of a slicker sound that sat uneasily alongside earlier works. Anyway, more post-punk from New York.
  9. Everything's just fine and Dandy.
  10. The Manic Miners Perestroika C5 Star The Snood Dudes
  11. More surf rock from my favourite Saint Petersburg-based trio.
