    Bad bass review

    Are you listening through decent headphones/speakers? Just about everything sounds terrible coming through phone or tablet speakers and bass most of all.

    I was watching this earlier. There's about 3 minutes of faffing around before he actually puts the thing on the bass and starts playing, but it sounds pretty good once he gets going. I'm tempted.
  3. I think most people are over that now, certainly those of us who weren't alive when she was supposed to have broken up the Beatles. Now she's just part of the Beatles mythology and the legend of John Lennon.

    Your Favorite Bass Prevalent CD?

    After all the Stuart Zender love on here recently it'd be rude not to mention Jamiroquai. Emergency on Planet Earth is a bass-centric classic.

    MusicMan Joe Dart Signature Model

    They've got a fair few guitar sigs. As far as I know they've never released an official signature bass.
  6. It's happened to just about everybody who's ever started a thread at one time or another.
  7. Is this like photobucket?

    Your Favorite Bass Prevalent CD?

    Anything by the Brothers Johnson. Slap bass how it should be done (as opposed to some of the over exuberant finger gymnastics that seem so popular on youtube these days).
  9. I like her bass. What is it?

    Best Wood for bass guitar

    I haven't completely written off the whole 'tonewood' thing, but I'm absolutely certain that I personally wouldn't be able to hear, let alone describe, the tonal differences between ash or alder, or anything else for that matter. Has anyone ever correctly identified say 5 different body woods in a blind sound test? From reports I've seen from the recent SE bash, bassists of not inconsiderable experience struggled to identify completely different models of bass in a blind test, let alone what they were made from.
  11. I recently discovered that there is genuinely a village called Bell End in Worcestershire. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell_End Disapointingly, despite wikipedia claiming that one of the local amenities is the 'Bell End service station' further research by myself has discovered that, for some reason, they actually advertise themselves as 'Bell service station'. Oh well.

    Ah, the naivety of a more innocent era.

    This guy had a really specific target demographic. Featuring such classics as 'Don't use the W.C. Gentlemen must please refrain' and 'The Woodpecker's Hole'.

    If you sent that image to someone these days you'd definitely end up being placed on the register.

    Basschat adverts

    For the first time ever on basschat todayI had a pop up add I couldn't switch off appear right over someone's comment, making it unreadable. It was for Dawson's so it wasn't wholly inappropriate, but it was a bit annoying. Two questions Does Basschat get revenue from these ads and will they cease to get that revenue if I install an adblocker? I'm a bit reluctant to do something that might deprive this free to use site of some well earned dosh (even of it's just fractions of of a penny per ad).

    Joe v Scott

    In answer to the question, Scott. But for me Mark Smith of Talking Bass has been by far the most easy to follow and downright useful YouTube tutor.
