  1. Higher Ground - RHCP Jolene - Sisters of Mercy for starters...
  2. Bananarama - Love in the First Degree and Nathan Jones (especially the dance moves in the chorus), love 'em.
  3. Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic started the RHCP slide for me - the albums before it, I enjoy much more.
  4. 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]
  5. 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.
  6. [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 .
  7. 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?
  8. From the missus: Vegas by Sleeper mentions Elvis and Sinatra
  9. There's a guy down the chip shop, swears he's Elvis - Kirsty MacColl (what a great voice).
  10. Good Time Boys (RHCP) mention Fishbone, took me ages to remember the song title!
  11. Rotosound Jazz bass 77 flats have green thready bits.
  12. [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]
  13. [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?
  14. [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.
