  1. I have an allowance from my millionaire great Aunt. It helps keep Ubit towers in the style that it is used to. The west wing was in need of repair recently but old aunt Gertie soon had that taken care of. I work just to keep from getting bored but intend chucking my job soon as I wish to further pursue my dream of being a top model. My current wife is an international origami champion and gets handsomely rewarded for her work. This is our string fund and I have a regular supply that arrives bi weekly. I don’t have many regrets.
  2. Has he converted his toilet into a music room? Either that or he has the smallest living room ever! Some dance moves right enough.
  3. Yes. I pride myself on being able to pose/ dance/ grimace/ look a tit onstage
  4. We were in Darmstadt a few years ago and we went into a bar. A gentleman went to the toilet and one of our party joked that he might be away for a crap ( Don't ask, it must have been an in joke at the time) When he returned he said to us No, it is Kraut you say, Kraut! We looked at each other puzzled and he left. Then it dawned on us that he had overheard us and misheard the meaning. It was all very confusing and a little embarrassing. The point is right enough he certainly wasn't bothered about being called a Kraut.
  5. I cannot see any derogatory issue with this. We get called Limeys and Pommies by the Americans and Aussies respectively. I don't have any gripe with that. I myself have been called a sweaty sock which I know is just rhyming slang for Jock. Again, no problem with it.
  6. I have just stuck a set of Elixirs on one of my P basses and am not very excited about them. I love the Elixir guitar strings. They are super bright and last for ages but I find the bass strings a bit dull sounding.
  7. I can't believe there was anyone still there!
  8. Don't think I will be using this anytime soon
  9. I used to just stick my phone through the PA on random. Anything could come on.
  10. I have had the same experience but mine was caused by nickel strings. I had no idea that I was allergic to it and when we were playing a lot, I had broken skin which started off itchy and then when broken, bled Heavily. I used to play in extreme pain all the time. Once I changed to stainless I found immediate relief. I have always liked the brightness of rounds and the stainless were even better. I just can't get any to last more than two proper gigs.
  11. I can't get on with thin picks at all. I have to use a thick pick because of the heavy strings. I admit I don't use it for a lot as I am mostly a finger style player.
  12. Even noodling in the spare room I find that after a while the strings start to go dead. I wipe my hands and use cleanser all the time as well. Cheap stainless are the way to go. https://www.amazon.co.uk/WINJEE-Stainless-Strings-Guitar-Accessories/dp/B07WZS7WW2/ref=sr_1_3_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=stainless+steel+bass+strings&qid=1598528254&sr=8-3-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExQUlTV0RETkFDWExXJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjEyNDIwMVpXOEY4REs1WjFQRyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMTExMTE4QThNWDU0UVJOQ1RVJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
  13. I am of no help to you as I feel an overwhelming urge to change my strings after two gigs. I use rounds exclusively and as soon as that new zing has gone from the string I feel underwhelmed. I have listened to others who say oh, these strings last ages or these strings keep their newness for months. I have tried loads and none last long enough for me. It's probably lucky that we are not playing just now because it gets expensive.
  14. Yup, if you don't mic any other drums mic the kick drum at least. The other drums will cut through (in small venues) but the kick can get lost in the mix. When you hear the punch of the kick drum with the bass, it's heaven.
