  1. Cort action Junior (short scale) has all the tones you need and is very playable! in fact thro a zoom pedal i can get the stranglers bass sound"
  2. In January auditioned for another band and got the gig.... Then along came Covid..... So i have only done an audition with this band! But the guitarist has hired a HUGE hall (only 3 in band) so distancing is no problem I got a load of PPE from work and hand gels and sprays etc, also visors and masks Woo!
  3. A year later... That band is no more. Got into a new one ... Virus stops play. Who would have thought
  4. lovely playing.... and such great face and head movement!! A joy to watch

  6. i passed an audition Monday for another band (really like their stuff!) its a trio so no-where to hide... and i gotta do BV's eek! called rock trip (can find on lemonrock site) really looking forward to it!! last band were good too... but singer went mad and left followed by 2nd guitarist a while later.... main guitar (his band) just seemed to lose interest eventually i asked him if we were done... yep! oh well shame
  7. so so sad! He was the reason i started playing bass.... life is a sky high percentage...
  8. A year ago was playing bass with some old friends from school. It was going knowhere. Went on a cruise and got chatting to some of the bass players in the bands. One of them let me have a go on her bass and it was lovely. Cort short scale. Also said the band were her brother's and they were having fun playing covers. I thought... Hmmm. Why not give it a go? Got home and got a Cort. Joined a cover band. Love it! Just found out that they are going to be on the cruise we are going on in the summer! Be nice to meet up and say thanks. Strange how things work out.
  9. Cort action junior. £180 new. Love mine
  10. As per the above. Do a lot of venues require this? I presume pros have it? But what about amateurs?
  11. Well. Gave them some samples of last gig. And a song list. Getting £400+ food and drinks. And a possible Xmas booking. Happy.
  12. rock/pop covers large hall, charity gig but others are just normal 5 piece band good level of playing (some semi pro) 5 miles away for me but 20 miles for others good grief! so many questions! i feel like i am being interviewed! :) just want a ball park figure for how much (roughly) do others charge (average)
  13. Probably been asked before but how much do other peeps charge for a gig? Rock/pop covers. Approximately 1-1.5 hour show.
  14. All of the above! Get song... Watch.... Learn.... Note... Play until don't need notes. Always take notes with me to rehearsal or gig tho... Just in case I get a block! Lol. I have a 'special' room. ( Where we dry clothes!).
  15. It's the 60w one. It's great! I use markbass combo now... Lovely

  18. I have always wanted to try an Ampeg SVT amd and 8x10 cab, but cost always denied me At the studio we rehearse in they have one, so I thought I would try it (always usually take my Markbass rig) and..... Wow! its sooooo LOUD! and heavy... I could hardly lift the amp! all in all tho.... prefer my Markbass rig!! lol oh well.... and my strap lock button fell out of my bass!!!! eek!
  19. love the Beatles.... My dad and uncles had all the vinyl albums... The songs are timeless. The way they made the white album is fascinating. however. One song is so weird ... Number 9. Number 9. Number 9... But bits of it get into your head! I still quote then now! Lol. let us know how the remaster sounds to you blue.
  20. S,,,, funny. We did alright now as first number... And got an attack of nerves! Interesting playing. Lol. Calmed down after first chorus. Never happened before. Remember.... It's for fun... No record company executives or management company to please! Why did I get nervous just playing covers for fun? Lol. Silly me!
