    How the hell do you play with a pick?

    Three fingers. 😎 I like to try this, but not in public. lol

    No Longer Comfortable to Play Jazz Basses

    I reckon this is just a GAS excuse.

    LOL! I'll just go back and hide behind the singer. For the record, after trying many, I've settled on Dunlop Max-grip 1.5mm. They just seem to stay where I want, even in summer!

    They're all originals that we're doing at the moment - all his own compositions. He is an awesome guitarist, and has played bass in bands before, so I do respect what he's saying, it's just that his "people skills" could use some work. Thanks for the feedback.

    This is a very useful post. Love the video. I'm currently under pressure from my band leader to play certain songs with a pick ("I'm not going to tell you how to play your bass, mate", then proceeds to tell me how to play my bass...) Anyway, I have played a little with a pick before, so "no problem", I think. Only he insists that my alternate up and down strokes are very, very wrong, and that everything should be played on a down stroke. Now, maybe I've misunderstood him, but it seems whether it's down strokes only or alternate up and down is down to the song and the sound required? Looks like more practice required on my part...

    I played my Ibanez Mikro at band practice last night. Got to say, it sounds proper bassy!

    Dawsons have been selling the Mikros off cheap. I picked one up for £129 last Saturday.
  8. Yes. What were you saying, again?

    Well, it's doing a grand job of holding up the Fender, and adding to it, in the practice room.

    Plugged it in to the Rumble last night - it's definitely different! Was it worth £99? Hell, yeah. Is it worth buying a 2x10 and separate head? No, the cabs are way too heavy for me to cart around. I'll be sticking to just the Rumble if I ever have to move gear on my own.

    My 1x15 has arrived. My god it is heavy! This one might be staying in the practice room.

    Oh, dear. I seem to have spent another £100 I really didn't need to spend, just so I can prop my Rumble a little bit higher... TBH, practice room could use a little more bass displacement... They kept telling me to turn it up! (Which is nice )
