  1. Cover Version Over Original

    Higher Ground - RHCP Jolene - Sisters of Mercy for starters...
  2. Cheesy songs you just love.

    Bananarama - Love in the First Degree and Nathan Jones (especially the dance moves in the chorus), love 'em.
  3. Coolest of bass players

    Micki Steele.
  4. Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic started the RHCP slide for me - the albums before it, I enjoy much more.
  5. Measure the width of the fretboard, call this c Measure the height of the fretboard (could be tricky without verniers), call this s (sagitta) The radius can then be found using this formula: [color=#000000][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]r = (4s[/font][/color][sup]2[/sup][color=#000000][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] + c[/font][/color][sup]2[/sup][color=#000000][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif])/(8s)[/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Haven't tried it myself, it's all derived from Pythagoras. Might try it tomorrow on a known radius.[/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Can't claim credit for the maths. I just enjoyed a pleasant mathematical half hour researching it.[/font][/color] [color=#000000][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Dario[/font][/color]
  6. teeny tiny basses

    My lad plays guitar, but when he was 9 he had to play bass in a school concert. He used my p-bass and had no problems, he's average sized. He played sitting down so the weight wasn't a problem.
  7. Miserable Christmas Songs

    [quote name='BassTractor' timestamp='1482427933' post='3200542'] I recognise this the other way round: coming from circles in Holland where oblique literary references are the order of the day, I suddenly lost an audience when moving to Norway. Initially I thought this was a cultural thing, but happily I found out later it was more innocent and just that Norwegians are stupid... (Seriously though: it IS a cultural thing. People with more education than I have could react strongly toetroddenly. ) [/quote] I look forward to finding out what toetroddenly means .
  8. Just been watching some xmas songs on Vintage TV and they played a Pet Shop Boys number from 1997 which was vaguely humbugish. That got me thinking about it, I can only think of Fairytail of New York. Any other miserable, bah humbug Christmas songs out there?
  9. From the missus: Vegas by Sleeper mentions Elvis and Sinatra
  10. There's a guy down the chip shop, swears he's Elvis - Kirsty MacColl (what a great voice).
  11. Good Time Boys (RHCP) mention Fishbone, took me ages to remember the song title!
  12. identify strings help!

    Rotosound Jazz bass 77 flats have green thready bits.
  13. Famous Brit/Yank Combos

    [quote name='chris_b' timestamp='1481542788' post='3193031'] Snap? Never heard of them. [/quote] Heh, heh. German/American it seems, thought I remembered them: [url="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snap!"]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snap![/url]
  14. Advent calendar, boring!

    [url="http://www.firebox.com/Gin-Advent-Calendar/p5655?mkt=en"]http://www.firebox.com/Gin-Advent-Calendar/p5655?mkt=en[/url] [url="http://www.alesbymail.co.uk/beer-advent-calendar"]http://www.alesbymail.co.uk/beer-advent-calendar[/url] How about either of these?
  15. Battery - Metallica

    [quote name='MacDaddy' timestamp='1481146208' post='3190103'] Which is the bass one? They all seem to go to guitar parts? [/quote] If you click on the cog in the top right, you can choose the instrument to view.
