  1. Really excited to be able to share this, which went live last week. Very pleased at how it turned out. I even listened to it being played on Switch Radio on Wednesday, so that's something off the bucket list!
  2. I found Ed Friedland's book of reggae riddims really useful. https://edfriedland.com/product/reggae-bass/
  3. I have two EBMM Sterlings; one fretted, one fretless. Both are sporting EB Cobalt Flatwounds, which feel lovely to play and sound tremendous. I haven't used any other strings for years.
  4. I'm in a covers band and an originals band. It helps that the singer is in both of them too, so at least I've got someone to back me up when prioritising gigs. The covers band is the busy one, the originals is more of an occasional indulgence.
  5. Good luck when their autonomous napalm-wielding AI military lawyers catch up with you more like!
  6. Absolutely gutted to hear this sad news. One of my heroes. 🥺
  7. This ^ I can't sing without my ear plugs. They enable me to pitch the notes correctly, even if I can't hear myself in the monitors. The bonus to this is that my voice sounds OK to me in my head, and not that horrible abomination that usually comes out of the speakers, or when someone records me.
  8. Good luck! Have fun - I'm sure you'll smash it! 🤘
  9. Even if the singist could sing in tune, alarm bells would be ringing for me if the singard and guitard were an item. 1st rule of band survival: NEVER join a group with a band couple! Haven't you seen Spinal Tap???
  10. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll smash it. Have fun!
  11. I'm glad that nobody was recording last night, but now that we've broken the ice, I've got high hopes for next week. Still lots of work to be done to get back to the level that we were at in February last year.
  12. Had our first band rehearsal last night since February 2020. We were a bit rusty to begin with - I think that we were all a tad nervous, but halfway through the third song we all started to relax into it and the magic started to happen. Really appreciated playing with other people again, and it was great just to be hanging with the band. I haven't stopped smiling all day, and I can't wait for next week!
