    People who disparage plodding bass lines should be sentenced to ten years of root / 5 in a Country band fronted by a malodorous, moustachioed pervert who hails from Shepherds' Bush but peppers his everyday conversation with 'Y'all this' and Y'all that'.

    Vivaldi, Verdi, Puccini, Corelli, Paganini, Respighi, Pavarotti, Bartoli, Morricone and - er - Zucchero are all good musical reasons to be proud of being (half) Italian

    What is it with BC and hostility??!

    Still got them. They're looking considerably more wrinkled now and so am I.

    BassChat is a considerably less fractious environment than it was when I joined and it's been even more matey than ever during its most recent evolutionary cycle. There's a natural churn to the forum (beyond which we also lost a clutch of regulars during that period which some have dubbed 'The Weird Times') but an influx of fun, witty and informed people have added much lustre to our common enterprise during the last couple of years. Yes, there are localised outbreaks of snark; contextually inappropriate political pronouncements continue to make themselves unwelcome. But there's a generally more relaxed feel to the place; mad rants tend to be greeted with a quizzically raised eyebrow or gentle mockery rather than feverish declarations of war; most importantly, people are no longer completely losing their sh*t over the issue of mixing driver sizes in a multi-cab rig (afaik).

    Something which often gets forgotten when we talk about moderation on the forum is just how incredibly handsome @ped is. I'm completely heterosexual but he's so lush I'd go down on him, no question

  13. Very sorry to hear about this development, chum. Hope you're feeling a bit better now. If you're sufficiently doubtful as to be asking BC / your cardiologists whether you should take your DB out then don't, particularly as: "On electric, I can play for hours without a problem but, on double bass, I struggle by the end of two sets".
