  1. Nice little bass solo in this too πŸ‘πŸ»
  2. Yep. While you're sleeping your brain is "playing" the bass line over and over again at a much faster speed. Seem to remember hearing a doctor talking about it on a podcast.
  3. Funnily enough, I was going to suggest a chambered Maruszczyk. I've owned a Jazz Maru in the past (albeit not a chambered one), the build quality was exceptional and the tone from the stock pickups was fantastic. I had a Sire at the same time and the tone was night and day. I'm also a massive Sandberg fan, so have a look at the Superlight series. Not sure if they do a P version though.
  4. Yeah, I know what you're saying, just messing really πŸ‘πŸ»
  5. Ahem... I see your quote and counter quote you with (from The Guardian interview) - "The band’s eager display of their bodies gave them a homoerotic frisson from the start ... Early in their career, the Chili Peppers did so in a daring way by posing for the Los Angeles-based gay porn magazine In Touch. β€œI felt honored that they wanted us in the magazine,” Flea said. β€œThe gay community in Los Angeles were the first ones to really embrace the Chili Peppers.”
  6. Thanks for this, definitely one for the reading list. BTW, Anthony Keidis' book is also well worth a read πŸ‘πŸ»
  7. Completely agree with this. I've got a one in natural, it's an absolute tone monster, super versatile and a dream to play.
  8. I didn't say they shouldn't do it, I was simply saying the reason it doesn't appeal to me is as I've seen it before.
  9. 100% Just another form of rap I reckon. I've been thinking on this today, and as far as I can tell, the last truly original new musical innovation was dance music back in the 80s/90s. A new form of technology came along and created a whole new form of music. I may well be wrong, but I've been wracking my brain all day and can't think of anything else.
  10. I can only speak for myself, but I think that, (along with other people of a certain age, around 40s onwards) it's not necessarily that I don't like it, it's just that I feel like I've seen it all before. So it doesn't feel like it has any real originality, rather, it feels a bit contrived or manufactured. I tend to find it a bit boring and uninspiring, which for me, is the opposite of how I want music to make me feel. I completely understand that it's nigh on impossible to invent a new mucial genre, so it's inevitable that new bands will sound/act like those who've gone before. So I don't think it's just a case of noisy band bad, or rapper in pants talentless, it's more that we were there (or thereabouts) at the birth of these genres and bore witness to true innovators create something completely unique. When punk came out, it was completely new, no one was doing anything like it, no one had seen anything like it. Same with rap. Now though, an angry lady with an average, noisy band? Seen that already 40 years ago. Angry rapping man dancing in his pants, yeah Mike Patton & Anthony Kiedis were doing that 30 years ago.
  11. Haha yep, unfortunately the buying bit has hit the pocket hard 😜
  12. Is every comment made on this thread completely unique? The information I shared showed he had 100% positive feedback, which he does. The ONE comment out of 165 you've highlighted does indeed say it is poor workmanship, it also says he liked the concept, which is why I expect the feedback he left was positive.
  13. Well, I suppose so, but I wouldn't really expect a load of Russian bots (or his friends/family/stooges) to be leaving fake feedback. The logical assumption is that, as eBay feedback is requested following transactions, it is from people who have transacted πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
  14. I suppose that's a compliment. Although, again I can't help but detect a note of snark. Look, this thread was 8 pages long before I made a very simple comment in response to a couple of points. A debate was already well under way by the time I contributed and since then, all I've done is reiterate my point, which is very simple and requires very little thought Where have I been contrary?
