  1. [font=Arial][size=2]I like your attitude, making music should be enjoyable and you couldn’t have picked a better instrument to enjoy making that music on. [/size][/font][font=Arial][size=2] [/size][/font][font=Arial][size=2][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=2] [/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=2]By the way, if you like noodling, why not pay a visit to the Basschat Noodle Bar and share a noodle or several with us?[/size][/font]
  2. A perfect example of "less is more". Outstanding
  3. [quote name='Asambique' timestamp='1463577676' post='3052478'] New to the forum and this looks like fun, dug out my old Ashdown Evo-II RPM-1 pre amp which i thought had bitten the dust as the last time i used it (4 years ago) it was playing up. However for the purpose of this noodle it seemed fine. Haven't really played much over the past 4 years let alone record anything but have found the fire again. Had a play around with the sub harmonics on it and this came out. [url="https://soundcloud.com/asambique/suboodle/s-92iG7"]https://soundcloud.c...uboodle/s-92iG7[/url] [/quote] Cool noodle
  4. Cheers, Rob. Our band's original material does tend to fall between the three stools of Rock, Metal & Prog.
  5. I've realised I've been playing a mildly alternative bass line - which to date has not been mentioned by either the band or punters.
  6. Next year look out for Canada and Tonga taking part too
  7. Watching it now - it's a ritual in our house It's definitely beer 'o' clock though
  8. Although my current band is basically a rock band we do have prog/prog metal (ish) leanings - and it's starting to show in some of our newer original material.
  9. Bet you wondered where I’d got to? No? Can’t say I’m surprised. Right, ok then, here we go – This month’s noodle is an original Ag-riff that’s become a bit of a work in progress since being presented to the rest of the band. The Primary riff is alternate bars of 4/4 & 5/4 (I suppose you could call it 9/4 but its definitely got a 4/4 feel to it and our drummer certainly plays it as if it’s 4/4 with an extra beat tagged on). The secondary riff is a couple of bars of 4/4 & a bar of 5/4 repeated until the last little bit which is in 3/8. Then back into the primary riff. https://soundcloud.com/agwin/may-noodle-riff My trusty ’78 Precision with light gauge Picato rounds into the PC and Audacity I’ve also included a link to the sketch I made using Sibelius so that I could demo the idea to my band mates – just in case anyone is interested. https://soundcloud.com/agwin/niffy-riffy
  10. With two wins under his belt already I look forward to Subsonic’s DB noodle played with his winner’s custom made engraved pick!!
  11. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1462710027' post='3045036'] A quick tango with Mrs C, for instance..? [/quote] Interesting you should mention the Tango. Myself and Mrs A have been taking weekly instruction in such terpsichoral matters and now find ourselves tearing up the floor with our “Improvers” Tango. The Tango should be danced with all heel leads (never on your toes), soft (bent) knees with staccato movements and a miserable face. Me and the Tango couldn’t be more suited!!
  12. It took me a while to whittle it down to three (again). I usually listen through headphones but the other day I was blasting the noodles through my sound system for full effect when I was joined by Mrs Agwife who couldn’t resist dancing around to Subsonic’s worthy winner – Congratulations, Sir. Well done to everyone who contributed a noodle - such incredible diversity on display.
  13. I tend to give each noodle a couple of listens as it comes in and then wait till they’re all ready to be voted on before I listen to them all again. I have, in the past, considered commenting on the noodles of others but find myself deferring to the superior eloquence of (if I may be so familiar) Rob’s comments - I’m sure we all appreciate your taking the time Sir.
  14. [quote name='xgsjx' timestamp='1461187435' post='3032354'] It amazes me how each one sounds very different & none are something that I could have come up with. Brilliant stuff chaps! [/quote] +1
  15. Still smiling from the sheer joy conveyed in CamdenRob’s winning noodle from last month. So here we go – sorry I’ve been a bit tardy this month. [url="https://soundcloud.com/agwin/the-great-sun-april-noodle"]https://soundcloud.c...un-april-noodle[/url] After being inspired by the harmonics ringing out in previous noodles I let chime forth a couple of my own. These seemed to lead nicely into the bassline to the chorus of one of our original (still a work in progress) tunes - The Great Sun - and back out again into noodletime. Enjoy (or not – the choice is yours) 78 Precision, Picato Light Gauge roundwound strings direct into pc and Audacity
  16. [quote name='CamdenRob' timestamp='1460282106' post='3024253'] Anyway where is Agwin's noodle, this thread has been up for 24 hours already? [/quote]
  17. [quote name='Twincam' timestamp='1460040523' post='3022008'] Seems we have a good battle of the noodles in kingbollock and camdenrob. If it ends in a draw there should be a freestyle noodle off. Because there can only be one! [/quote] Noodle Off! Sounds like it should be either an insult or a euphemism Seriously, good idea if it ends in a draw
  18. Voted this morning - took ages to whittle down favourite eight to three.
  19. Had a listen to them all again over the weekend and managed to whittle it down to my favourite EIGHT !! Getting it down to three is going to be tough. Quality noodling everyone.
  20. Thank you Gents for taking the time to listen to both bits. Thanks Dad3353 for the link explaining Normalise. I hadn’t considered extending the Murder Mystery Theme until you suggested it Looking forwards to hearing CamdenRob’s “New Bass” noodle later in the month. Just listened to FuNkShUi’s splendid new noodle – I [i]do[/i] like the tone of your bass.
  21. Looks like it’s me up first again! Here’s this month’s noodle: [url="https://soundcloud.com/agwin/fretless-tune-march-noodle"]https://soundcloud.com/agwin/fretless-tune-march-noodle[/url] Played on my defretted Hohner Precision copy strung with dead rounds. Straight into Audacity then “normalised” (what ever that is – just seemed to make it louder) and a bit of phaser added. It just sort of formed it’s self out of thin air after watching a few minutes of Scott Devine expounding on arpeggios. I was subsequently inspired to fire up my Sibelius software and have a bit of a compose. I seem to have ended up with a potential ITV Murder Mystery theme. I’d be chuffed to bits if you could find the time to also give this a listen– It’s not very long about 01:20 in total. https://soundcloud.com/agwin/murder-mystery-tune
  22. Paice Ashton and Lord years ago (late seventies) at Brum Odeon Slade when they had their brief revival in popularity, in the eighties I think –again Brum Odeon. Seen Sabbath, Maiden, Gillan, Whitesnake, Rainbow, Purple et al and never found it excessive although last time I saw Rammstein (on their Made in Germany tour) at whatever they’re calling the NEC this week I thought they were getting close to being uncomfortable. Saw Dream Theater at Wolves Civic a couple of years ago and thought they could've been louder. Gotta go, phone's ringing - oh, hang on, it's not the phone - it's my ears!
  23. I voted a couple of days ago but have listened to them all several times since. After gorging myself on noodles I’m still hungry for more and looking forward to what’s going to be served up next month.
